Global Food Enzyme Market 2015-2019
About Food Enzymes
Food enzymes are catalysts of biochemical reactions that break down complex starch, fat, and large protein molecules into smaller units. They are derived from various sources such as plant tissue, animal tissue, and microorganisms. They are widely used in food and beverage products to aid digestive and metabolic processes. Based on type, food enzymes are segmented into carbohydrases, proteases, lipases, and others. They are used in confectionery products, bakery products, beverages, dairy products, convenience foods, and meat and poultry products.High consumption of packaged and processed foods, coupled with a rapid shift in lifestyle and food habits worldwide, is triggering demand for food enzymes as processed and packaged foods are usually composed of complex molecules that are often difficult to digest. Some enzymes are also used to enhance the shelf life and improve the appearance of food and beverages.
Technavio's analysts forecast the global food enzymes market to grow at a CAGR of 6.80% over the period 2014-2019.
Covered in this Report
This report covers the present scenario and the growth prospects of the global food enzymes market for the period 2015-2019. The report further provides data on the following segments of the market:
Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Food Enzyme Market 2015-2019
Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the Global Food Enzyme Market: AB enzymes, Amano, Amway, BASF, DSM, DuPont Danisco and Novozyme
Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Advanced Enzyme Technologies, Aum Enzymes, BioResource International, Chr. Hansen, Enmex, Enzymatic Deinking Technologies, KDN Biotech, New England Biolabs, Nutriteck, Roche and Specialty Enzymes & Biotechnologies
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The current trend is now moving toward producing enzymes from transgenic sources which includes both animals and plants. This focus on transgenic sources has given rise to the production of therapeutic proteins. The therapeutic proteins are widely used in the pharmaceutical industry and are used in the treatment of cancer, anemia, and hepatitis. These genetically transgenic plants help in improving production yield, and building up of nutritional quality, and they lower transportation costs. Glyphosate-resistant transgenic tomatoes and potatoes are being developed by transferring a gene into a glyphosate EPSP synthetase from salmonella typhimurium and E. coli sulphonylurea-resistant tobacco plants are produced by transforming the mutant ALS (acetolactate synthetase) gene from arabidopsis.”
According to the report, food enzymes, apart from aiding the metabolism and digestion, are also used to improve the yield of the product during processing and also to improve the texture, color, and other properties. Some enzymes when used in appropriate quantities can improve the yield in juice and bread manufacturing by as much as 50%. Also, they enhance the visual appearance in terms of color and freshness. For instance, enzymes are used in fruit juices and cut fruits to give them a fresher look. As the demand for value-added products increases, the demand for enzymes for the above purposes also increases.
Further, the report states that the global food enzyme market faces a major challenge because of the stringent rules and regulations in different countries related to the utilization of enzymes.
