Growth Factors

Growing consumer awareness regarding health has resulted in surging demand for functional food and beverage products, which is further anticipated to trigger the product demand in the coming years. Enzymes are derived from the organs of animals such as plant materials, microorganisms, and calf stomach. With the advent of different technologies including genetic engineering, enzyme manufacturers have an option to produce the necessary quantity of enzymes in selected production hosts such as transgenic plants and microorganisms. Market players are using appropriate microorganisms, such as enzyme-producing yeast, bacteria, and fungi, to produce enzymes on a commercial scale.

The demand for carbohydrase is increasing due to their extensive use as an ingredient in soft drinks. Carbohydrase is categorized into amylase, xylanase, cellulose, pectinase, and lactase. Increasing application of various types of carbohydrase in the pharmaceutical and animal feed sectors is anticipated to drive the market over the forecast period.

By Type Analysis

The industrial segment dominated the market with a revenue share of over 55.0% in 2020. This is attributed to the rising demand in various end-use industries such as food and beverages, detergent, animal feed, textile, paper and pulp, and wastewater. 

Enzymes also play a prominent role in cellulosic conversion for the production of cellulosic ethanol. The increasing rate of fossil fuel depletion, along with the growing demand for green alternatives, is projected to increase the demand for biofuels, which, in turn, is likely to drive the market over the forecast period. 

Enzymes find applications in research and biotechnology as they are further used in several end-use industries and possess health benefits. Enzymes such as protease, dismutase, elastase, anhydrase, tyrosinase, and catalase are generally used in cell biology as they help the cell in carrying out quick chemical reactions.

By Product Analysis

The carbohydrases segment dominated the market with a revenue share of over 47.0% in 2020. This is attributed to the growing demand from numerous end-use industries including animal feed, food and beverages, and pharmaceuticals. 

Protease is mainly used for protein breakdown, the catalytic hydrolysis of protein peptides to amino acids, and in various applications such as animal feed, chemicals, detergents, food, pharmaceutical, and photography.

Lipases are used for the catalytic hydrolysis of fats or lipids. They are used for transporting, digesting, and processing dietary lipids such as fats, oils, and triglycerides. 

By Source Analysis

The microorganisms segment dominated the market with a revenue share of over 80.0% in 2020. This is attributed to the increasing demand for fungi-based enzymes in numerous end-use industries. Unlike animal-based, fungi-based enzymes are suitable for a vegetarian diet and are thus anticipated to witness high growth in demand.

The animals segment is another major segment after microorganisms. Animal-based enzymes are mainly procured from the pancreas and stomach of cattle and swine. These enzymes function entirely within a restricted range of pH levels.

Plant-based enzymes are sourced from plants, for instance, bromelain is derived from pineapple and papain from papaya. Prominent enzymes found in plants include protease, lipase, cellulase, and amylase. 

By Regional Analysis

North America dominated the market with a revenue share of over 36.0% in 2020. This is attributed to a strong presence of various end-use companies in the food and beverage, pharmaceuticals, laundry detergent, and personal care and cosmetics industries, along with high scope for research and development activities in major countries of the region.

Europe is one of the major producers of medicinal, pharmaceutical, and cosmetic products. The presence of major pharmaceutical and cosmetics companies such as AstraZeneca plc, Beiersdorf, Hoffmann-La Roche Ltd., MerckKGaA, Sanofi, New Avon Company, and Unilever in the region is expected to propel the demand for enzymes.

The Asia Pacific region is expected to be a prominent market over the forecast period on account of the growing meat production, particularly in China. The demand for carbohydrase and protease is growing significantly across China on account of rising demand from the pharmaceutical and food and beverage industries.
