Global Enzymes Market Size, Segments, Outlook, and Revenue Forecast 2022-2028 by Product Type (Industrial Enzymes and Specialty Enzymes), Source (Microorganism, Plant, and Animal), Type (Carbohydrase, Proteases, Lipases, Polymerases & Nucleases, Other Enzymes), Applications (Food & Beverages, Animal Feed, Cleaning Products, Biofuel, Research & Biotechnology, Diagnostic, Pharmaceuticals, and Others), and Major Regions (North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Latin America Middle East, and Africa)
Enzymes can be defined as protein molecules that are produced by all living organisms and act as biological catalysts. These help speed up the process of a chemical reaction. Enzymes help in improving the quality of the end products by playing a vital role in the fermentation process. Nowadays, these can be synthesized organically or chemically and are widely used in industrial and specialty processes.
According to Ken Research Analysis, the Global Enzymes Market is expected to record a positive CAGR of over 6% during the forecast period (2022-2028) and is expected to reach approximately US$ 16 billion by 2028, due to an increase in technological advancements for the manufacturing of enzymes along with the growing demand for enzymes in various industries including food and beverages, bioenergy, animal feed, pharmaceuticals, and others. The ongoing Covid-19 pandemic has benefited the enzymes industry due to a surge in nutritional and immunity-boosting products which has directly increased the demand for enzymes.
The growing demand for enzymes for the treatment of various diseases including cardiovascular diseases, cancer, and others along with the increasing prevalence of cardiovascular diseases and increase in the geriatric population is expected to augment the growth of the market. In 2022, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), one person dies every 34 seconds from cardiovascular diseases in the U.S. It was reported that 697,000 people died from heart disease in the year 2020.
The rising research and development of enzymes for the production of biofuel are likely to create immense opportunities for the growth of the enzymes market in the forthcoming years. In August 2020, according to Technology Networks, researchers at the Brazilian Center for Research in Energy and Materials (CNPEM) genetically engineered low-cost enzyme cocktails from a fungus that helped break down the carbohydrates in biomass, like sugarcane (tops and leaves) and bagasse into fermentable sugar. The low-cost enzyme cocktails can be used efficiently to produce biofuels from sugarcane residues.
The lack of standard regulatory policies on enzymes is the most significant barrier to the growth of the enzymes industry globally. In March 2021, according to The European Parliament, there are over 250 technical enzymes which are produced from genetically-modified organisms and most of them are permitted in Europe. However, no relevant, independent, or well-founded studies have been done on their effects on health, which led to a lack of mandatory labeling of technical enzymes in the food processing industry.
During the initial period of COVID-19 pandemic, the disrupted supply chains have affected the production capacity, demand, and supply of the enzymes but post 2021 the demand for enzymes increased owing to rising health awareness among consumers which has boosted the demand for immunity-enhancing products. In August 2021, Advanced Enzymes Technologies entered the e-commerce space in India with its immune-supporting brands- ImmunoSEB and Biome Ultra, which comprised systematic enzymes and probiotics. These products help enhance immunity and are effective in reducing ‘long Covid afflictions.
