Enzymes Market Growth & Trends

The global enzymes market size is expected to reach USD 17.2 billion by 2027, registering a CAGR of 7.1% over the forecast period, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. Increasing demand for enzymes from the food and beverage industry, especially for the production of brewing and bakery products is one of the key factors driving the market growth.

Food and beverage industry includes several applications such as baking, brewing, dairy, and starch and sugar, which find extensive use in daily human life. In the baking industry, these are used to provide specific properties to the flour or dough. In biscuits and crackers, the use of enzymes helps lower the protein content of flour while their use in bread improves or standardizes the quality and ensures uniform browning of the product. The product is extensively used in the food and beverage industry to improve the quality and productivity of products, which is anticipated to fuel the market growth.

Enzymes are also used as feed additives in the animal feed industry. Phytase, protease, and carbohydrase are used extensively in the animal feed industry. Phytase is an abundant source of phosphorus and a key ingredient required for the growth and repair of tissues and organs of animals. Carbohydrase is utilized for improving the digestion of carbohydrates present in the feed. They further breakdown starch into simple sugars such as fructose, maltose, and glucose. Increasing demand for the product in the animal feed industry due to their multi-functional attributes is anticipated to boost the market growth.

Enzymes used in industrial applications were traditionally extracted from animal organs such as calf stomach, plant materials, and microorganisms (bacteria, yeast, and fungi). With the emergence of technologies such as genetic engineering, manufacturers have a choice of producing required quantity of enzymes in selected production hosts such as microorganisms and transgenic plants. Market participants are focusing on backward integration by using suitable microorganisms such as bacteria, yeast, and fungi and further use those for the production on a commercial scale.
