Dairy enzymes, which are vital for cheddar, yogurt, milk, and milk product processing, are known to improve the shelf life of dairy products. The increasing utilization of dairy products in fast-food eateries and day-to-day meals will accelerate the demand for dairy enzymes. Moreover, surging consumer demand for such enzymes due to their balancing properties and ability to activate longevity is also set to push market growth.

Additionally, favorable initiatives by governments from different nations to support the dairy industry will also boost the dairy enzymes market development in the coming years. For instance, in March 2022, the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) announced an additional USD 80 million investment in the DBI (Dairy Business Innovation) Initiatives. This investment was intended to help DBI Initiatives in supporting dairy producers who were drastically impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic by providing them with sub-grants and technical assistance.

Consistently rising consumer focus toward healthy and lactose-free products will fuel dairy enzymes market statistics. Companies have been focusing on innovating products and performing research & development activities, which will have a positive impact on the industry demand. Core players are also actively engaging in strategic partnerships and acquisition agreements to maintain a positive business outlook in the forthcoming years.

Stringent norms on enzymes production may restrain industry progression

The presence of strict and critical guidelines for handling enzyme production and usage is a major factor restraining market growth. When enzymes are mishandled, they can change shape, which hampers their efficacy. For example, when lactose is not broken down, the dairy product can cause diarrhea, gas, and bloating. Recent government efforts to reduce these implications have posed a threat to industry growth. Nonetheless, rigorous R&D activities by companies will aid in overcoming this issue.

Based on applications, the dairy enzymes market is categorized into milk, cheese, butter, yogurt, whey protein, desserts and ice cream, infant formula, and other applications. The industry from the cheese segment exceeded 7 kilo tons in volume in 2021 and is foreseen to reach 15 kilo tons by 2030. This can be attributed to the fact that dairy enzymes initiate the process of dividing the solid curds from the watery whey, providing cheesemakers the raw ingredients they require to make a batch of brick cheese, a chunk of cheddar, or an ounce of asadero cheese.

Product innovation to strengthen the dairy enzymes industry outlook

Novozymes, STernEnzym, Kerry Group, Dow DuPont, Molekula Gmbh, DSM, Biocatalysts, Amano Enzyme, CHR. Hansen, Advanced Enzyme Technologies, Specialty Enzymes & Probiotics, and Enzyme Innovation are some leading dairy enzymes market players. The companies are focusing on consistent research & innovations together with several growth mergers and collaborations to maintain a positive business outlook. For instance, in August 2020, Royal DSM, a healthcare company, launched DelvoPlant, a range of enzymes for optimizing the sweetness, taste, and texture of plant-based drinks as part of its growing dairy alternatives portfolio. These enzymes have numerous advantages – they enhance the solubility of protein, reduce the viscosity, refine mouthfeel, and unlock the natural sweetness of raw materials viz., rice, soy, and oats.

Impact of COVID-19 on the dairy enzymes market trends

During the COVID-19 pandemic, the industry witnessed a rise in product demand. Research studies found that dairy intake could significantly reduce the risk of getting infected by the coronavirus infection, bolstering consumer demand for these products. Moreover, the pandemic brought about new opportunities for product penetration attributed to soaring health consciousness among consumers and growing awareness regarding various benefits of these enzymes.
