Advancements in molecular biology, genomics, and microbial diversity is propelling the food enzyme industry demand. The demand for food preservatives is also expected to increase, owing to the growing consumption of processed and packaged food, thus driving the enzymes usage. Food enzymes act as a catalyst for biochemical reactions that offer quality improvements in various processed food products, thereby supporting its adoption in diverse application areas.

Penetration of organised retail sectors in urban and rural centres is augmented the bakery and confectionery products demand thereby supporting the food enzymes market expansion. Technological developments in the production of enzymes from genetically manufactured organisms are a major trend disrupting the market growth. A growing product range in the bakery and processed food sector will open the doors for varied opportunities which in turn will enhance the chances for food enzymes manufactures to leverage these opportunities.

Manufacturers of food and beverages have moved away from the use of chemical additives and are focussing on organic food additives like enzymes. With the production of innovative enzymes, developers offer their end-users a wider range of products to improve the quality of processed foods. Food enzymes have high dough-resistance and processability properties. Enzymes help to increase resource efficiency through the reduction of processing losses in the food chain. Sustainability and ethical procurement standards are also an important trend supporting the product usage.

The use of enzymes stimulates demand for bio-based materials and reduces the use of harmful substances. Increasing product usage in milk industry is considered as a key factor for market expansion. Rigorous R&D has been conducted by enzyme manufacturers to ensure and preserve the desired properties of milk product. Enzyme usage is increasing owing to factors such as improved and quick processing, development in biotechnology and ability for modification on large scale. Further, the crisis in COVID-19 should have a positive impact on the food enzymes market size, owing its usage in nutritional and immune products.

Carbohydrases dominated the food enzymes market share in 2020. Amylases and lactases together are expected to hold more than 30% industry share by 2027. Carbohydrase is widely used in the food and beverage industries as ingredients and processing aids. It is the most important ingredient used for manufacturing sports drinks under beverage industry. The growing public health awareness and fitness trend has escalated the consumption of sport drinks globally which is expected to have a positive impact on the global carbohydrase market.

The phytase segment is expected to register more than 8.5% CAGR over the forecast period. Phytases food enzymes with low phytic acid contents are preferred, owing to its advance mineral bioavailability properties. This enzyme is widely used as supplements of commercial phytase ingredients to provide better bread shape, increase volume, and softness in the crumb. Furthermore, hydrolysis of phytase enhances mineral absorption in bread and bakery products thus boosting its consumption. Phytases provide remarkable results in bread making by reducing fermentation time and adding nutritive value along with the absorption of calcium and other minerals.

Beverage application to drive the food enzymes market

The beverage segment is expected to witness the highest growth in terms of revenue, registering a CAGR of over 8% in the forecast period. A shift in consumer trends to a healthier and more natural diet has led the manufacturers to generate chemical-free beverages. In the beverage industry, enzymes are new alternatives to chemical or mechanical methods with improved yield and quality. Pectinases, amylases, cellulases and xylanases are typical enzymes used for extracting and clarifying fruit juices. Enzymes are used as natural processing aids to improve the taste, shelf life, textures, appearance and nutritional profiles of food and beverage products.

Enzymes play an important role in the manufacturing of diverse food and beverages products for maintaining the texture and flavour of the food product. Food enzymes are highly preferred for food and beverage application as it, catalyse essential and highly specific reactions in unique processing conditions. This kind of treatment is often better than harsh chemical or thermal treatments. Also, optimization raw juice yield is among the key aspects propelling the product adoption. Besides optimising the yield, enzymes are also essential for remedying cosmetic beverage deficiencies.
