Report ID: GMI2354
Global Papain Market Size is likely to grow with a high CAGR by 2024. The market growth is attributed to the increasing health concern among the consumers and globally rising demand for natural enzymes.
Papain breaks down tough meat fibers, and is used to tenderize meat. The globally increasing demand for meat tenderizers will propel the market growth. Papain is capable of digesting dissolved proteins, with amino acids as a by-product and thus increases the clarity of beer. The market will witness a high demand from thriving beer industry in the near future. Papain is also used in removing hair from hides before tanning and for treating wool before dyeing. It is likely to have demands from the tanning industry owing to the popularity on animal skin usage. Papain is a protein degrading (proteolytic) enzyme and hydrolyzes large proteins into amino acids & smaller peptides, which makes it a useful enzymatic supplement. Papain also aids in protein digestion as it has a mild, calming effect on the stomach.
The medicinal properties of papain make it significant in treating parasitic worms, diarrhea, inflammation of the throat and pharynx, shingles symptoms, runny nose, hay fever, psoriasis, etc. It is also used in preparing several remedies for ulcers, indigestion, fever, and swelling. For instance, according to ‘2010 animal study’ by the U.S. NCBI (National Center for Biotechnology Information), papain was approved to be applied as a natural therapy for wounds, skin ulcers and other skin infections. NCBI also concluded that the product is safe and effective for treating various types of injuries in different healing stages, as per its ‘2012 systematic review’.
Papain acts as cleansing agent for soft contact lenses and increases lens wearing time in keratoconus patients with papillary conjunctivitis. It is used in toothpastes and mint sweets as a tooth whitener. Papain enzyme being found in the latex produced by the fruit of the Carica papaya plant, it possesses allergic sensitivity. It may cause symptoms ranging from itchiness to abdominal cramps, excessive sweating and diarrhea.
