Food Enzymes Market Trends




  • Growing awareness about nutritional requirements is driving market growth




Market CAGR for the food enzyme market is being driven by the growing awareness about nutritional requirements. Worldwide awareness about nutritional food products is rising rapidly. It is associated with rising urbanization, pollution, health diseases, and changing dietary habits. The population is inclining towards more value-added food categories, and their search for health is having a great effect on nutritional products. The preference of consumers for nutritionally rich healthy food is increasing the production by food processors with the inclusion of enzymes into their products.


The increasing demand for all-natural, chemical-free products has fueled the incorporation of bio-based additives in processed foods. The enzymes are produced by many micro-organisms, plants, and animals, having a wide range of benefits over synthetic chemicals in product processing and human consumption. Food processors are utilizing enzymes as a cost-effective and safe replacement for synthetic chemicals. The enzymes are used as additives to improve the organoleptic, rheological, and nutritional value, like digestibility, texture, and shelf-life. The advancement in biotechnology for enhancing the enzyme production process is significantly fueling the growth of the market. The consumption of clean-labeled, free-from foods is increasing the demand for enzymes in the food industry. The shift from chemical to natural is due to the awareness of adverse health effects owing to the consumption of synthetic ingredients and additives. Food enzymes fit well with the trend of natural ingredients and reduce the cost of overall processing.


There is growth in the consumption of fermented food and beverages owing to their various health and nutritional benefits. The food enzymes are mainly used during the fermentation process to speed up the production process and provide nutritional benefits. Consumers are becoming conscious of the health benefits of fermented food products, and demand for these products is also rising. Fermented products such as kombucha, sauerkraut, kimchi, kefir, and others are famous food products among consumers. The food enzymes improve the food quality of many fermented food products. Food enzymes have emulsification properties that increase the kinetic stability of the food and have similar benefits to food products. The major benefit of using enzymes in place of emulsifiers is a clean-label ingredient; Lipase is a food enzyme that is the best alternative to the emulsifier. It can be utilized as an alternative for the emulsifier in bakery, dairy, confectionery, and other industries, providing the potential for growth for the food enzymes market. Thus, driving the Fragrance Ingredients market revenue.
