Food Enzymes Market: Overview

The food enzymes market was USD 3 billion in 2021, projected to grow at a CAGR of 6.1 percent during the forecast period. With the introduction of frozen, packaged, and processed food, the F&B industry added a new front to its product range to capitalize on the rising demand for convenience food. Complex chemicals in packaged food products make them challenging for the body to digest normally. The application of food enzymes became inevitable for F&B enterprises with the increased consumption of packaged foods worldwide. Food enzymes are frequently added to foods as food additives to improve food and beverage texture, digestibility, and shelf life. The worldwide food enzymes market has grown due to a thriving packaged food sector and rising consumer knowledge of natural food enzymes' nutritional and health advantages.

Over the next seven years, due to their environmental friendliness, the primary driver projected to propel market expansion will be the rising usage of food enzymes in end-use sectors such as drinks, dairy, and confectionery. Due to qualities like increased shelf life and dough stability, the bakery is anticipated to continue being the leading end-use industry for food enzyme applications, followed by dairy and drinks. Due to their low cost and great production, microbial sources are the primary source of food and beverage enzymes. Food enzyme market growth is projected to be fueled by digesting, softening, and anti-staling features. For instance, in July 2021, A premium product that consumers will adore will now be available from dairy producers thanks to IFF's announcement of Murcia's introduction in North America. To organically produce the largest output of prebiotic galactooligosaccharides (GOS) fibres in situ, Murcia uses the lactose found in milk. Consequently, sugar and lactose levels are greatly lowered, and balanced sweetness and authentic milk clean notes are added. A game-changing development for the dairy sector, NuricaTM is offered under the Danisco line of food solutions, which is now a member of the IFF family.

For instance, In January 2021, according to DuPont Nutrition & Biosciences (DuPont), one of the most effective and label-friendly antimicrobial solutions is now available to processed meat manufacturers in the Middle East and Africa (MEA). It has been demonstrated that NovaGARD NR 100-G, a component of the DuPont Danisco family of antimicrobials, inhibits the development of Listeria monocytogenes and other gram-positive bacteria, preserving the safety and superior quality of meat products throughout their shelf life.

Food Enzymes Market: COVID-19 Impact

Millions of people worldwide risk losing food security and nutrition due to the COVID-19 pandemic, a health and humanitarian calamity. Before the virus struck, hundreds of millions of people were already starving and malnourished, and unless fast action is taken, we might witness a worldwide food disaster. Without widespread, coordinated action, the long-term repercussions of COVID-19, its accompanying mitigation measures, and the impending global recession might undermine the operation of food systems. Such a disturbance may have far-reaching effects on nutrition and health that haven't been witnessed in more than 50 years.

Food Enzymes Market: Drivers

Rising Interest in Processed Foods Drives Market Growth

The expanding economies of the Asian continent are primarily to blame for the surge in demand for processed foods worldwide. China and India are key forces behind the significant expansion of the processed food business. This business is growing as a result of the expanding middle-class population, who have rising disposable incomes and active lives. Applications of food enzymes increase the freshness of finished goods, extending the convenience food's shelf life while keeping its flavor, color, and texture. Customers are increasingly choosing convenience and on-the-go food items due to their changing lives and hectic schedules. The use of food enzymes in the beverage sector has also increased as beverage consumption, both alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages, has increased. Fruit and vegetable juices are extracted using a variety of food enzymes. They are used in the wine business to clarify, filter, and boost juice output. In addition, major research, and development (R&D) projects aimed at reducing waste and improving food security and safety are fueling the Market's expansion.

Advancements in Molecular Biology, Genetics and Microbial Diversity are Driving Market

Innovations in molecular biology, genetics, and microbial diversity drive the demand for food enzymes. As the consumption of processed and packaged foods rises, so does the need for food preservatives, which in turn fuels the demand for enzymes. Food enzymes catalyze biochemical processes that enhance the quality of processed foods, promoting their use in a wide range of applications. The demand for bakery and confectionery items has increased due to the penetration of organized retail sectors in urban and rural centres, boosting the market growth for food enzymes. A significant trend impeding market expansion is technological advancements in manufacturing enzymes from genetically engineered organisms. Food enzyme manufacturers will have a better opportunity to use these prospects due to a rising product selection in the bakery and processed food industries.

Food Enzymes Market: Restraints

Restricted Operating Temperature and Ph Range to Hinder Market Growth

Local environmental factors significantly regulate food enzyme activity. The reaction rate is dramatically reduced when the temperature is lowered, yet heat agitation renders the food enzyme inactive because it is denatured (its structure is damaged). The activity of the food enzyme is also decreased when the pH is changed outside of its functional range, which might eventually result in irreversible denaturation. There is still a long way to go before using enzymes in all food and beverage manufacturing processes, despite the food enzyme industry's efforts to create enzymes that can function in a wide temperature and pH range. Additionally, consumers are under pressure to consume fewer meals containing food enzymes due to growing public knowledge of the drawbacks of such foods. The European Union has developed a policy to control the use of food enzymes in the food and beverage industry.

Food Enzymes Market: Segment Overview

Carbohydrates to Dominate Market Due to Rising Demand from Dairy Producers

During the forecast period, the carbohydrates segment is anticipated to have the biggest market share by type. They are divided into three groups: cellulases, amylases, and other carbohydrates (such as pectinases, lactases, manganese, and pullulans). Carbohydrates are utilized in food applications to serve a variety of sectors, including dairy, processed food, bakery & confectionery, etc. Due to their affordability, reduced time and space consumption, and simplicity of process customization and optimization, they offer benefits over other food applications. The significant market share of carbohydrase is mostly attributable to the growth of its uses in the dairy and beverage industries and technical advancements. But due to several factors, such as its low extraction cost, rising demand from dairy producers, ease of handling, and qualities like high stability towards temperatures and solvents, wide pH range, and broad substrate tolerance, lipase is predicted to grow at the fastest CAGR during the forecast period.
