Product Lifecycle Management to Lead to Innovations in Enzymes

The enzymes market is highly competitive, with three major players accounting for a combined share of ~50% of the global market. Emerging players are finding it challenging to adapt to changing global trends. This has increased the need for innovations in the global enzymes market.

For instance, the food and beverages processing application segment is predicted for an exponential growth during the forecast period, with the highest estimated output of ~375,000 tons by 2027. However, growing concerns about food safety, food compliance, and quality act as a challenge for manufacturers in the enzymes market. Thus, manufacturers are adopting product lifecycle management to gain customer trust.

Manufacturers are required to be more efficient and creative in product development, especially in the domain of plant-based food products. Since the demand for plant-based food is on the rise, it could lead to innovations in this demanding sector. Likewise, consumers are becoming increasingly conscious about enzymes in a range of health, wellness, and natural products. Thus, manufacturers are focusing on production process optimization to deploy innovations in enzymes.

Data Analysis and Technological Expertise Accelerate Enzyme Discovery Process

Biotechnology is becoming increasingly mainstream in the global enzymes market. Though technical grade enzymes are anticipated for an aggressive growth during the forecast period, manufacturers are creating resource availability for the development of specialty enzymes. As such, technical grade enzymes dictate the enzymes market, in terms of value and volume, and this segment is estimated to reach a volume of ~730,300 tons by 2027.

Choosing the right enzyme for product innovation has become the focal point for manufacturers. Competition has compelled market players to include available technologies and newest advancements in the biotech landscape. Manufacturers are increasingly relying on data analysis and other tools to identify genes and wield them in expression systems to accelerate the process of enzyme discovery.

Analysts’ Viewpoint

In the enzymes market, genetic evidences and the sequencing technology will help in the development of highly nutritious crops. This trend will create competition among food manufacturers. Moreover, regulations driving the adoption of biofuels has led to several innovations and exponential growth of the bioenergy sector.

However, there is a lack of scientific innovation in the domain of animal nutrition and protein production. Hence, manufacturers should adopt nutrigenomics and in vitro digestion modeling to maximize feed usage and enhance animal nutrition. Manufacturers should also focus on incorporating local produce and cater to traditional taste and cultures to serve new customers.

Enzymes Market: Overview

  • Enzymes primarily catalyze specific biochemical reactions. Enzymes help in the production of environment-friendly products, which consumes less energy, water, and raw materials at the time of processing. Thus, they generate less waste.
  • Enzymes play a major role in increasing digestion, production of food, and several other industrial applications. Enzymes act as highly effective catalysts in biochemical reactions, thus enabling a chemical reaction to take place quickly and efficiently.
  • Enzymes are mainly used as catalysts to produce a wide range of products such as sugar, beer, bread, ethanol, etc. They are also used in the manufacturing of laundry detergent for the removal of stains and for low-temperature washing. 

Key Growth Drivers of Global Enzymes Market

  • Growing demand for food & beverages, owing to significant increase in population in developing countries of Asia Pacific is expected to drive the demand for foods and ready-to-eat meals across the globe
  • Enzymes are increasingly being used as a sustainable tool in the food & beverages processing industry. In the food & beverages processing sector, enzymes are used for the production of baked goods, dairy products, juices, alcoholic beverages, etc. Enzymes, such as carbohydrases, are widely used in the baking industry to improve flavor and as an anti-staling agent to improve bread quality.
  • Enzymes are extensively used in the beverage industry for conversion of starch to glucose, manufacturing of high fructose corn syrup and prebiotics, and debittering of fruit juices. These are also used in the manufacturing of wines in order to increase the juice extraction and for obtaining fine-quality wine.
