Report Description

The market for industrial enzymes is likely to showcase the CAGR of over 6.5% during the forecast period (2021-2027) to exceed the market value of $8.5 billion by 2027. The market is anticipated to be driven by ascending demand for carbohydrase and proteases in the food and beverage applications, especially in the emerging economies of Asia Pacific, such as China, India, and Japan owing to the increasing food demand in the region. For instance, in the year 2019, Japan had the highest per capita spending on food that is USD 4417.5 per person followed by followed by Australia, Canada, and France with per person spending of US$ 3,003.6, US$ 2986.9, and US$ 2983.4, respectively. The increased per capita spending of consumers on food has increased the demand on hotels, restaurants, bakeries; etc. This has positively impacted the demand for demand for enzymes in the food & beverage sector.

Furthermore, increased consumption of bakery products such as breads, pastries; etc. has been increasing the demand of enzymes in bakeries. For instance, in 2020, fresh bread and rolls were the best-selling bakery products in the United States, with sales amounting to a total of approximately 14 billion U.S. dollars. With sales in excess of nine billion U.S. dollars, the cookie was the country’s second-favorite baked product.

Furthermore, rising product demand from the end-use industries, such as biofuel, home cleaning, and animal feed, is projected to fuel the industry growth over the forecast period. Bioethanol is the most used biofuel, which is an alternative to fossil fuel and is mainly produced by the hydrolysis of cellulose from lignocellulosic biomass and by the fermentation of sugars of different lignocellulosic sources. The biodegradability and reduced toxicity of bioethanol, for which biomass is used as a primary substrate as well, are its main advantages over fossil fuels. The United States is the leading producer of fuel ethanol in the world. In 2020, the U.S. produced 13.8 billion gallons of the biofuel.
