Global Digestive Enzymes Market - 2021-2028
The global digestive enzymes market size was valued US$ XX billion in 2020 and is estimated to reach US$ XX billion by 2028, growing at a CAGR of XX % during the forecast period (2021-2028).
Digestive enzymes are a group of enzymes that break down polymeric macromolecules into their smaller building blocks, in order to facilitate their absorption by the body. Digestive enzymes play a key role in regulating and maintaining the functions of the digestive system properly. These enzymes not only helps in digestion but due to excess or lack of these enzymes, one can face difficulties in digestions too.
The global digestive enzymes market growth is driven by the increasing prevalence of gastrointestinal disorders, awareness about the gastrointestinal health, increasing focus to the preventive health management are the factors to the global digestive enzymes market growth in the forecast period.
Increasing geriatric population and the rising prevalence of gastrointestinal disorders
The global population is aging rapidly, owing to reduced birth rates and increasing life expectancy. The demographic trend toward an aging population represents a growing need for the management of disorders, such as GI tract obstructions. According to the report ""World Ageing Population, 2019"", the older population of age 65 and above accounted for approximately 702.9 million all around the world, and it is expected to reach around 1,548.9 million.
The secretion of digestive enzymes usually decreases with age, which contributes to high levels of gastric discomfort, lower digestion rates, reduced food consumption, and/or a variety of other GI disorders. Therefore, with the increasing geriatric population, the market for digestive enzymes is expected to increase, over the forecast period.
Presence of a large number of small and big companies will drive the market
Presence of a large number of small and big companies makes the global market for digestive enzymes competitive in nature. Digestive enzyme supplements have to comply with various regulatory bodies including the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act of 1994, and Natural Health Products Regulations for manufacturing and use. In order to grow in such a competitive environment, the established players are investing heavily in research and development to come up with better products. They are also embarking upon partnerships with retail chain companies to improve sales.
Risks associated with use is likely to hinder the market growth
However, the risks for most enzyme supplements are pretty minimal. Digestive enzymes may trigger a number of side effects, including stomach pain, nausea, diarrhea, and vomiting. In addition, some people may experience allergic reactions to digestive enzymes.
Bromelain, the enzyme from the pineapple, may have anti-platelet activity. If a person take blood thinners or have anti-platelet activity, taking it could possibly increase the risk of bleeding. Pregnant and lactating women are advised to consult their doctor before taking these products.
COVID-19 Impact Analysis
Although COVID-19 primarily a respiratory disease, growing evidence shows that it can affect the digestive system and present with gastrointestinal (GI) symptoms. In patients with COVID‐19, the normal intestinal mucosa can be disrupted by the severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus virus, and this could result in GI symptoms and a compromise in nutrient absorption. Optimization of oral diet is still recommended. However, given the GI effects of COVID‐19, a fraction of infected patients have poor appetite and would not be able to meet their nutrition goals with oral diet alone. For this at‐risk group, which includes those who are critically ill, enteral nutrition is the preferred route to promote gut integrity and immune function. In carrying this out, nutrition support practices have been revised in such ways to mitigate viral transmission and adapt to the pandemic. To counter this situation the doctors are prescribing the digestive enzymes to the patients. Thus, the pandemic has incresed the sale and ultimately growth of the digestive enzymes market in the forecast period.
Amylase segment is expected to grow at the fastest CAGR during the forecast period (2021-2028)
Amylase is essential for the digestion of carbohydrates. It breaks down starches into sugars. Amylase is secreted by both the salivary glands and the pancreas. The measurement of amylase levels in the blood is sometimes used as an aid in diagnosing various pancreas or other digestive tract diseases. High levels of amylase in the blood may indicate a blocked or injured duct of the pancreas, pancreatic cancer, or acute pancreatitis, a sudden inflammation of the pancreas.
Low levels may indicate chronic pancreatitis (ongoing inflammation of the pancreas) or liver disease. Amylase health benefits include the ability to fight diabetes. According to a 2013 study published in the Journal of Clinical & Diagnostic Research, type 2 diabetes patients were found to have high blood sugar levels that correlated with low serum amylase levels. The study suggests that amylase plays an important role in maintaining the health of the pancreas. Low amylase levels have been linked to an increased risk of diabetes as well as metabolic syndrome. Amylase health benefits include the ability to reverse diabetes symptoms by reducing high blood sugar levels.
Amylase has the ability to provide the body with a natural source of energy. It helps break down starch so the body can use it as fuel. Amylase plays an important role in breaking down high-starch foods like bread, grains, cereal, rice, pasta, beans, potatoes and corn. Without amylase, the body wouldn’t be able to convert these carbohydrates into energy.
By processing starches in diet, amylase aids in the digestive process. It helps the body absorb nutrients form the food while breaking down carbohydrates. Amylase helps keep digestive problems at bay while ensuring that your body absorbs the nutrients from the food we eat
The animal origin are expected to dominate the digestive enzymes market during the forecast period
The major factors responsible for the growth of this segment include the efficiency of these animal-derived enzymes in various diseases or conditions, such as pancreatitis, exocrine pancreatic insufficiency, and pancreatic cancer. Hence, the rising prevalence of these diseases may influence market growth. Digestive enzymes from animal origin often come from the pancreatic or stomach enzymes in cows or pigs. Unlike plant-based enzymes, they are only functional at higher pH levels. Therefore, they are less efficient for aiding digestion in the stomach compared to plant-based digestive enzymes. However, specific animal-based enzymes such as pancreatin may be useful for aiding conditions such as pancreatitis, exocrine pancreatic insufficiency, and pancreatic cancer. Pancreatin contains the proteases, amylases, and lipases that a normally functioning pancreas would have; therefore, this enzyme would be useful for targeting an isolated problem in the pancreas.
According to the Cancer Research UK, new cases for pancreatic cancer accounted for almost 10, 257 in the United Kingdom, for 2015-2017. The animal-based enzyme is currently preferred as standard care of treatment for these diseases. The reason behind it may be similar pathophysiology of humans and animals. For instance, the pancreatic pathophysiology of hogs is very much alike to that of humans. However, ethical issues associated with animal origin products in some consumers are expected to hamper the segment's growth.
The microbial enzyme, on the other hand, is expected to witness the fastest growth rate over the forecast period. This growth rate of the microbial origin products can be attributed to factors, such as low production cost and high enzymatic activity. Microbial enzymes are capable of degrading toxic chemical compounds of industrial and domestic wastes (phenolic compounds, nitriles, amines etc.) either via degradation or conversion.
The microbial enzymes have gained recognition globally for their widespread uses in various sectors of industries, e.g., food, agriculture, chemicals, medicine, and energy. Enzyme mediated processes are rapidly gaining interest because of reduced process time, intake of low energy input, cost effective, nontoxic and eco-friendly characteristics. This factor is driving the growth of the segment in the forecast period.
