Enzymes are a class of substances that catalyze or inhibit specific chemical reactions. Enzymes are proteins or RNAs produced by living cells that have high specificity and catalytic efficiency for their substrates. The catalytic action of an enzyme depends on the integrity of the primary structure and the spatial structure of the enzyme molecule. Denaturation or subunit depolymerization of enzyme molecules can lead to loss of enzyme activity. Enzymes are biological macromolecules with a molecular mass of at least 10,000 or more, and large ones can reach one million.
Enzymes are an essential class of biocatalysts. Due to the action of enzymes, chemical reactions in living organisms can be performed efficiently and specifically under extremely mild conditions. With the deepening and development of the research on the structure and function of enzyme molecules and the kinetics of enzymatic reactions, the discipline of enzymology has gradually formed.
Global Enzymes Market projected to grow with a significant rate during the forecast period, 2020-2027. The growing health awareness among consumers has led to the rising consumption of functional food products are signigifcant factors expected to drive the global enzymes market in the future timeframe. The increasing concern for the environment due to the depletion of non-renewable resources coupled with the surge in demand for biofuel will trigger the global enzymes market in the upcoming periods. Additionally, the augmentation in population across the globe, along with the growing need to improve food flavor, quality, and texture, will expand the global enzymes market size in the forthcoming years. Enzyme preparations have a wide range of applications, which can reduce the production costs of downstream industries and effectively reduce the pressure of rising prices of various raw materials.
Furthermore, the rising demand for enzymes in various industries such as food and animal feed, textiles and detergents, pharmaceuticals and biotechnology, paper and paper processing, and leather will boost the enzyme’s market value in the expected periods. Additionally, growing demand for enzymes in the food & beverage industry for providing specific properties to the flour or dough and in biscuits and crackers, it lowers the protein content of the flour, etc. would propel the growth of global enzymes market.
With the development of the food industry across the globe, the types of enzyme preparations can no longer meet the needs of the food industry. The enzyme preparation industry is continuously introducing new enzyme preparations, complex enzyme preparations, high-activity, and high-purity special enzyme preparations to meet the growing food industry need.
Enzymes make the food eaten by the human body digest and absorb, and maintain all internal organ functions, including cell repair, anti-inflammatory detoxification, and metabolism, improve immunity, generate energy, and promote blood circulation.
Locusts may be a good target for biocatalysts because enzymes contained in their gut can break down cellulose. The new enzyme can be used to reverse engineer a biorefinery to degrade biomass more efficiently. Enzymes and microorganisms found in the termite’s gut to design a method to convert lignin to biofuel. The enzyme is a protein catalyst for biochemical reactions produced by living cells and plays a vital role in animal digestion and metabolism. Most of the enzyme preparations used in the industry are hydrolytic enzymes.
The enzymes that animals can secrete into the digestive tract belong to proteases, lipases, and carbohydrate enzymes. Under the action of digestive enzymes, the substrate macromolecular substances (such as proteins, fats, polysaccharides, etc.) are degraded into small molecular substances that are easily absorbed, such as oligopeptides, amino acids, fatty acids, glucose, etc.
Based on product type, the global Enzymes market classified into Proteases, Lipases, Carbohydrases, Polymerases & Nucleases, Phytases, and Catalyses. The Carbohydrases segment predicted to gain a major share in the market by 2027, owing to the growing demand for the Carbohydrases in various industries such as textiles & leather, food & beverages, pulp & paper, and biofuel. Carbohydrases are sub-categorized into cellulose, amylase, pectinase, lactases, and xylanases/ hemicellulases.
The Lipases segment will grow attributable to the increasing application in catalytic hydrolysis of fats or lipids, and it is used for digesting, transporting, and processing dietary lipids.
Based on the source, the global enzymes market categorized into Microorganism, Plant, and Animal. The plant segment likely to dominate the market as it is sourced from plants. Prominent enzymes found in plants include amylase, protease, cellulase, and lipase. Amylase help in the human body with the breakdown, and subsequent absorption of starch and carbohydrates and protease helps break down proteins.
The microorganisms’ segment will influence by the easy availability of it and low production cost. It is used in food, pharmaceutical, and detergent industries.
Based on application, the global enzymes market classified Industrial Enzymes (Food & Beverages, Detergent, Animal feed, Biofuels, Textiles, Paper & pulp, Nutraceutical, Personal care & cosmetics, Wastewater and Others) and Specialty Enzymes (Pharmaceutical, Research & Biotechnology, and Diagnostics). The Industrial Enzymes segment estimated to generate maximum revenue by 2027, on account of enzymes, play a significant role in the development and production of Food & Beverages, Detergent, Animal feed, Biofuels, Textiles, Paper & pulp, Nutraceutical, Personal care & cosmetics, Wastewater. In the processing of fruit and vegetable, enzymes help in breaking down several complex molecules in the food into simpler forms that can be easily digested.
The Specialty Enzymes segment will be the fastest-growing segment attributable to the surge in the application of enzymes in the pharmaceutical industry, such as in the incorporation of biocatalysts into the manufacturing process. It is used in therapies for diseases, such as cancer, cardiovascular diseases, and lysosomal disorders.
Based on geography, the global Enzymes market segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, South America, and Middle East & Africa. North America region will register a higher CAGR by 2027, owing to the development of novel and superior performing products and global industrialization. The pharmaceutical industry in this region is also witnessing utilizing the application of enzymes. Additionally, increasing awareness among the population regarding their personal and family health, coupled with high consumer preference towards processed foods, will grow the enzymes in these regions.
The Asia Pacific region will drive by the surge in chronic disorder, rise in disposable income, and improvement in patient awareness about the benefits of enzymes.
Companies such as BASF SE, Novozymes, DuPont Danisco, DSM, Associated British Foods plc, Chr. Hansen Holding A/S, Advanced Enzyme Technologies., Kerry group, Dyadic international, inc, Aumgene bioscience, Amano enzyme, Roche holding, Codexi, and Sanofi are the key players in the Global Enzymes Market.
