Rising consumer awareness regarding nutritional and health benefits of food enzymes will drive the industry growth. Food & beverage industry has witnessed a strong application outlook for quality improvement and eliminating the deficiencies from the products. These enzymes are extensively used in bakery applications for reducing the protein flour level in crackers and biscuits, standardizing bread quality, and ensuring uniform browning of the bread. This will positively influence the food enzymes market over the next eight years.

Various end-users such as packaged food units and frozen food manufacturing industries are increasingly adopting these additional extracts for better product standardization and uniformity. The processing units make extensive usage of specialty additives to carry out environment-friendly processes, resulting in reduced raw material wastage, further escalating the revenue generation. Food enzymes are used as biocatalysts to increase the production rate. Moreover, they are highly required in alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages to break down pectins present in the plant cell walls.  These benefits will propel the industry growth till 2024.

These additives are used in a variety of emerging applications including processed foods, bakery, and dairy. High demand for shelf life extension and optimization of production will remain key properties. Fermentation is a trend that has gained prominence in the food industry. The edibles are fermented, that results in the creation of numerous enzymes, amplifying their strength. Furthermore, high usage of these additives to enhance bioavailability of minerals, stabilization of beverages, and minimization of off-odors will induce immense potential to the industry growth.

Lack of standardized regulatory guidelines may hamper the industry growth over the coming years. Barriers in the brewing industry are another factor negatively impacting the product sales. Moreover, excessive costs associated with the R&D activities will further pose a challenge before the global market participants. However, the competitors are focusing on developing cost effective methods for their production.
