The microorganism segment is projected to witness significant growth during the forecast period.

Based on source, the food enzymes market is segmented into microorganism, plant, and animal. The microorganism segment is projected to witness the fastest growth during the forecast period, as enzymes obtained from microbial sources lead to low production costs and are stable than other sources. They can be produced through fermentation techniques in a cost-effective manner with less time and space requirement, and because of their high consistency, process modification and optimization are easily done.  

The carbohydrases segment is projected to account for a major share in the food enzymes market during the forecast period

By type, the food enzymes market is segmented into carbohydrases, proteases, lipases, polymerases & nucleases, and other enzymes (such as catalases, laccases, oxidases, phosphatases, kinases, esterases, and pectinases). Carbohydrases are classified into amylases, cellulases, and other carbohydrases (such as pectinases, lactases, mannanases, and pullulanases). Amylase is used in the baking industry as the addition of amylase to the dough, enhances the fermentation rate which results in the reduction of the viscosity of dough, further improving the volume and texture of the product. Due to easy modification and optimization processes, there is a huge usage of amylase in the food & beverage industry.
