Brewing Enzymes Market Overview:

Brewing Enzymes is expected to grow at a 6.54% CAGR and reach USD 451.41 Billion by 2030. Brewing is the process of manufacturing beer using the starch sources like water, barley malt, hops, brewer’s yeast, and clarifying agents. Enzymes are proteins that have a special structure that acts as a biocatalyst and grows the chemical reaction rate. It can boost the breakdown of different substrates and is used in the production of beer and wine. It is also used to adjust the taste and content of beer, producing light beers, and containing fewer calories.  During the manufacturing process of beer, brewers are preferred for their high flexibility to seek the raw material for brewing. These enzymes help in avoiding the diacetyl formation and make the process faster and more cost-effective.

Brewing enzymes are used in the preparation of wine in various ways like wine filtration problem-free, smooth, and maintaining the color and aroma of the fineness. Apart, during the fermentation process, these enzymes reduce viscosity, extend the beer’s shelf-life, and also support yeast. As per the report of the Brewers Association, the number of craft breweries in Europe is grown from 2,420 to 6,266 from 2012 to 2017.

COVID-19 Analysis:

COVID-19 has drastically impacted the world economy. Similarly, it also impacted the sale and revenue of the brewing enzymes market. The coronavirus has spread from one place to other. To curb the spread of the virus, most governments have implemented strict regulations like lockdowns, limited visits to public places, social distance, the shutdown of industries, transportation restrictions, and more. Due to the lockdown implementation, the bars and microbreweries are closed which leads to the halt of the production of beer. Owing to the prevention of mass gatherings, the consumption of beer in breweries is expected to affect the post-COVID-19 scenario too.

As the transportation restrictions were implemented, the raw materials for the breweries has been disrupted which leads to delays in the transportation of brewing enzymes. Lack of manpower and shortage of raw materials results in a decline in production. Due to the export and import ban in several countries, there is a disruption in the brewing enzymes market supply chain. Hence, in this way the brewing enzymes market is negatively impacted due to the pandemic. After reducing corona cases and lifting lockdown, the market growth has rapidly increased.

Market Dynamics:


Growing per capita income is predicted to spur market growth in the review period. Continuous research and development for introducing the product and process innovations are expected to fuel the market growth. Growing demand for cost reduction and resource optimization is propelling market growth. Rising demand for alcoholic beverages leads to a rise in demand for the brewing and distilling industries are growing significantly during the past few years.

Furthermore, the rising trend of craft breweries and specialty beers is escalating the growth of the market. The distinctive and flavorful beers are boosting the brewing enzymes market for the products like proteases, amylases, glucanase, and cellulase in the alcoholic beverages market. Rising demand for craft beers due to the surging number of craft breweries is fostering the brewing enzymes market growth.


Lack of technical knowledge regarding product development and the manufacturing factors like pH control, temperature, and government regulations are hampering the market growth. Moreover, the dearth of uniformity in regulations is hindering the growth of the market.


The rising demand for enzymes for enhancing the beer efficiency and economy is advanced with high developing capacity is creating an opportunity to boost the market growth in the future years. Apart, due to the trend towards a healthy lifestyle, introducing new products in the alcohol-free and low-alcohol segment is expanding the growth of the market


The reduction of malt prices is challenging the market growth of the brewing enzymes. Moreover, regulations in the brewing industry by FDA, USDA, and EU are hampering the market growth.

Segment Overview:

The global brewing enzymes market has been divided into five segments based on type, source, form, application, and region.

Based on Type

The brewing enzyme types are classified into various forms such as amylase, beta-glucanase, protease, xylanase, and others. Among them, amylases are dominating the largest market share due to their wide range of benefits and strong outlook in various brewery processors like mashing, cereal cooking, and fermentation.

Based on Source

Based on the source, the brewing enzymes are bifurcated into microbial and plant. Out of these, the microbial source segment is leading the global market due to its easy handling, can manufacture in huge tanks with the absence of light, and have a high growth rate.

Based on Form

By form, the brewing enzymes are sectioned into powder and liquid. Among them, the liquid form of brewing enzymes is dominating the largest market share for its various benefits like as it saves energy, low water usage, low wastage of beer, and simplifying the filtering process.

Based on Application

The brewing enzymes based on the application are partitioned into beer and wine.

Based on Region

Based on region, the brewing enzymes market is globally divided into four major regions like Asia-Pacific, Europe, North America, and the Rest of the World.
