(Food-Beverage-News.Com, April 05, 2021 ) The enzymes market was valued at USD 10.0 billion in 2019 and is projected to reach USD 14.7 billion by 2025, recording a CAGR of 6.7% during the forecast period. The demand for enzymes is increasing significantly, as it is being used across various industries and as a substitute for chemicals.
Key players in this market include BASF (Germany), DuPont (US), Associated British Foods (UK), Novozymes (Denmark), DSM (Netherlands), Dyadic International (US), Advanced Enzymes Technologies (India), Aumgene Biosciences (India), Chr Hansen (Denmark), Amano Enzymes (Japan), Roche Holding (Switzerland), Codexis (US), Sanofi (France), and Merck (Germany).
The microorganism segment is projected to witness significant growth during the forecast period.
Based on source, the enzymes market is segmented into microorganisms, plants, and animals. The microorganism segment is projected to witness the highest growth during the forecast period, as enzymes obtained from microbial sources lead to low production costs. Furthermore, they contain more predictable and controllable enzyme content. In addition, as enzymes obtained from microbial sources can be cultured in large quantities in a short period, microorganisms are the primary source of industrial enzymes.
The carbohydrases segment is projected to account for a major share in the enzymes market during the forecast period
By type, the enzymes market is segmented into carbohydrase, proteases, lipases, polymerases & nucleases, and other enzymes. The carbohydrases segment is further segmented into amylases, cellulases, and other carbohydrates. This segment is estimated to account for a significant share in the enzymes market, as carbohydrase, such as amylase and cellulase, has been used in industrial applications, including food & beverage, textiles, and pulp & paper. In addition, the enzymes market is dominated by the carbohydrase segment, as the majority of biofuels are manufactured by sugars and amylases and are used as an economical alternative for the modification of starch into sugars.
The Asia Pacific region is projected to witness the fastest growth during the forecast period.
The enzymes market in Asia Pacific is expected to witness the highest growth due to the increasing demand for enzymes in industrial and specialty applications. Technological innovations in machinery, synthetic fibers, logistics, and globalization of business have made the textile & leather industry one of the essential sectors in the Asia Pacific region. Furthermore, the shift of industrial operations from developed regions, such as North America and Europe to Asia Pacific, has further contributed to the growth of the enzymes market in this region. The use of enzymes in the biofuel industry will grow further due to the increase in bioethanol production and its usage in fueling automobiles and electricity. In addition, the majority of the population resides in the Asia Pacific region, which is contributing to the growth of the pharmaceutical industry. Enzyme usage in pharmaceutical products will further drive the enzymes market in the Asia Pacific region.
