The global food enzymes market was worth US$ 1.8 Billion in 2018. Food enzymes are biocatalysts that are used to break down nutrients such as proteins, carbohydrates, fats and vitamins, into simpler forms. Enzymes such as protease, amylase and lipase are also used for preservation, coagulation and tenderization of beverages, bakery and dairy products. They aid in improving the flavor, texture and fragrance of the products and are primarily manufactured using plants, animals and microbes such as yeast through the process of fermentation. These sources are considered to enhance the nutritive value of the food and produce desirable aromas in various edible products.
The thriving food processing industry, along with growing consumer awareness for nutritional products, is the key factor driving the growth of the market. There is an increasing demand for nutrient-rich and high-quality food and beverages. Also, shifting dietary preferences of consumer toward natural, organic and chemical-free food has alleviated the adoption of food enzymes. Furthermore, the rising demand for frozen and processed food products is also favoring the market growth. Consumers are increasingly opting for on-the-go and convenience food products owing to their changing lifestyles and busy schedules. Additionally, increasing beverage consumption, including both alcoholic and non-alcoholic, has enhanced the usage of food enzymes in the beverage industry. Various food enzymes are used for the extraction of fruit and vegetable juices. In the wine industry, they are utilized for the process of clarification and filtration and increasing juice yield. Apart from this, extensive research and development (R&D) activities for waste reduction and enhancing food security and safety are further catalyzing the growth of the market. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to reach a value of US$ 2.55 Billion by 2024, registering a CAGR of 5% during 2019-2024.
