Shifting consumer preferences towards packaged and processed foods due to the rising awareness pertaining to food safety & security will be a key impetus for the global enzymes market growth. Incorporation of enzymes in several food products promotes prolonged nutritional content and longer shelf life, thereby augmenting the product portfolio. Additionally, rapid penetration of organized retail in the untapped rural & urban areas will provide strong business outlook through the forecast period.

Continuous government support in the taxes & subsidies on numerous food items accompanied by the upgradation of trade practices between several economies across the globe will propel the industry landscape. For instance, free trade agreements including the North America Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) and Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) favour the international trade among several nations. Mass urbanization, changing consumer lifestyle and growing health awareness will provide lucrative opportunities for the global enzymes market size through the forecast period.

Food & beverage industry expansion for the growing population requirements along with need to improve food flavour, quality and texture will drive enzymes market growth. Major product benefits in baking products that include standardized bread quality, uniform bread browning, and lower flour protein levels in crackers & biscuits will support industry growth.

Potential applications in the detergent industry will also provide positive outlook to the industry growth as they are widely used for the stains removal from clothes. Addition of specific enzymes in the product composition will enhance the effectiveness of detergents and helps in the removal of protein-based stains. For instance, the blood stains removal becomes very easy with the use of a normal enzyme-based detergent. Growing adoption of auxiliary chemicals for enhancing bleaching & deinking and fiber modification will support the enzymes market penetration in the pulp & paper industry. Improved paper quality and reduced energy consumption are the major benefits that will support product penetration over the forecast timeframe.

Lack of standardized regulatory guidelines and harmonization will continue to hamper the enzymes market growth. For instance, the EU regulations related to the approval of additives before they can be used as enzymes in the feedstuff will lead to complex situations among the product manufacturers in the region. High product prices as compared to traditional ingredients, particularly in the food & beverage industry, are among the key factors restraining industry growth. Additionally, proliferation of digital media across the globe has reduced the overall usage of paper.

Advancements in automation to improve the production efficiency have increased machinery and equipment costs. The initial investment in machinery & equipment for enzymes is high due to the long process involved. The rising demand for reduced possibility of infection, reduced handling costs, user-friendliness, sustainability, and clean & hygienic machinery will positively influence the price trend. However, this in turn will help the company gain competitive edge over the other industry participants and support the market growth over the forecast period.
