Food Enzymes Market 1
Food Enzymes Market 1

Food Enzymes Market was valued at US$ 2 billion in 2020 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 6% over the forecast period (2021-2027). The demand for Food Enzymes is on the rise owing to the rising per capita incomes in developing countries, which will result in strong gains in enzymes associated with the production of food and beverages, cleaning products, and animal feed. Rising per capita incomes will support consumer demand for higher-value goods, such as gluten-free, low-fat food products, which would drive the demand for the food enzymes.


Also, the trending adoption of western culture in the countries of the Asia-Pacific region would drive the demand for meat, baked goods, and dairy products will continue to rise among emerging middle-class populations. In turn, these foods will be increasingly produced using enzymes, both in animal feed and in food processing applications

The flourishing food processing industry, coupled with the growing consumer awareness for nutritional products, is the key factor driving the growth of the food enzymes market. A rise in the demand for nutrient-rich and high-quality food and beverages was witnessed in the past few years. Moreover,  shifting the dietary preferences of consumers toward natural, organic, and chemical-free food has improved the adoption of food enzymes. Also, the promulgating demand for frozen and processed food products is favoring the market growth. Consumers are increasingly opting for on-the-go and convenience food products owing to their changing lifestyles and busy schedules.
