Food Enzymes Market size to exceed $ 4.6bn by 2027

  • Published Date: November 9, 2021

Food Enzymes Market size is estimated to exceed USD 4.6 billion by 2027, according to a new research report by Global Market Insights Inc.

Food enzymes are protein molecules found in plants, animals and microorganisms. The product acts as catalyzers in biochemical reactions and are extensively used for increasing diversity, and quality improvements during processing of food. Wide application scope across beverages, processed food, dairy, bakery, and confectionary will support market expansion.

Food enzymes are extensively used as food additives to enhance the digestibility, texture, and shelf life of processed food products. Increasing consumption of processed food & beverage products will stimulate the product adoption rate. Moreover, processed foodstuffs consist of complex molecules are hard toto digest naturally thus the usage of food enzyme in processed food production is utmost important. Food & beverages manufactures are emphasizing on their product portfolio by launching frozen & chilled varieties with exotic flavors to attain higher share.

Carbohydrase segment is forecast to record around 8% CAGR up to 2027 owing to increasing adoption in foods and beverages industries

Food enzymes market from carbohydrase exceeded USD 1.6 Billion in 2020 and is poised to register a significant CAGR in the coming years owing to growing demand for prominent carbohydrases type such as amylase, pectinase, lactase, and cellulase. Carbohydrase is a prominent catalyst used in food and beverages to support and fasten the digestion process. It is also utilized for production of syrups such as inverted sugar syrups, glucose, and fructose, which find applications in breweries, baking and processed food sector. In addition, surging adoption in prebiotic products and manmade sweeteners for wines and juices will further support segment growth.

Phytases is expected to witness a major growth during the forecast timeline owing to rising consumer awareness regarding its health benefits. Phytases extracts increase the body's capacity to absorb magnesium, calcium and iron, which are the essential minerals required in body’s functioning. Also, it helps to reduce the negative impact of phytic acid in the body. Due to its importance for the digestive procedure and bone health, phytases demand is expected to drive the food enzymes market forecasts.
