Pulp & Paper Enzymes Market Size

Pulp & Paper Enzymes Market size surpassed USD 170 million in 2022 and is estimated to record over 5% CAGR from 2023 to 2032 driven by the high consumer preference for sustainable and eco-friendly products.

Pulp & Paper Enzymes Market

In recent years, the packaging business has witnessed a considerable increase in demand for sustainable alternatives. Concerns over single-use plastic waste and changing consumer attitudes are two factors pushing the usage of paper packaging, thereby fueling the expansion of the pulp & paper enzymes industry. Furthermore, fast-moving consumer goods (FMCG) companies are offering to incorporate an environmental, social, and governance (ESG) components into packaging to address numerous environmental issues.

Rising preference for paperless communication to slow down pulp & paper enzymes market progression

The rising trend towards digitization and paperless communication has hampered industry growth. Many firms choose to employ digital documents and paperless alternatives, such as email, document management systems, and mobile devices, over papers. Moreover, most individuals are already well acquainted with the near-instantaneous nature of digital communication, which has declined the demand for paper documents.

Pulp & Paper Enzymes Market Analysis

Based on product, the pulp & paper enzymes market from the amylases segment is set to reach USD 96.8 million by 2032. Amylases are used in the paper industry to amend the natural starch content in coated sheets by the creation of high molecular weight and low viscosity starch. It serves as a paper coating paste that increases the hardness and strength of the paper, thereby facilitating the production of high-quality paper. Hence, the rising demand for amylase by paper manufacturers to enhance the viscosity and concentration of paper-coating starch is expected to push segment growth.

Global Pulp and Paper Enzymes Market Share, By Application

In terms of application, the pulp & paper enzymes market from the surface coating segment is predicted to observe around 5% growth rate through 2032 attributed to the rising demand for coatings with advantageous properties. Surface coating is also required to improve the reliability and efficiency of automotive systems as these coatings reduce friction, which enhances wear resistance. According to a US Economy study, lowering the friction coefficient and wear in engine and valve trains saves around USD 120 billion annually. Hence, the increasing demand from the automobile sector is projected to increase the segment share.

Asia Pacific pulp & paper enzymes market is poised to reach USD 129 million by 2032 propelled by the new trend of lightweight packaging cardboard boxes for logistics purposes. Additionally, high product demand for packaging and distribution activities, especially from the booming F&B sector is offering new growth opportunities to the industry players. For instance, in July 2022, Confoil, an Australian food packaging business, and BASF collaborated to create a certified biodegradable and dual oven-able paper food tray. The inside of the paper tray is coated with BASF's ecovio PS 1606, a partially bio-based and certified biodegradable biopolymer developed specifically for covering paper or board food packaging.
