Food Enzymes Market

High reaction specificity of enzymes is driving the overall market

The use of enzymes in the food & beverage processing industry ensures the selective analysis of specific food constituents so that the time and costs can be reduced. Conventional use of chemicals requires time-consuming separation techniques, which affect an organization’s budget. Enzymes are biocatalysts that bind substrates into their active sites in a compact and highly specific orientation, which guarantees that, of the many thermodynamically feasible reactions that can occur in the process, only a particular one is accelerated. This high reaction specificity of food enzymes also eliminates the possibility of undesired side reactions, which can compromise the safety of end products, which is ultimately for human consumption.

Growing demand for nutraceutical products offers a major opportunity for the growth of food enzymes market.

Globally, the burden of chronic diseases is rapidly increasing. According to the WHO, in 2015, about 3 million deaths were caused by chronic diseases, which was 5% of all deaths in that year, globally. Also, the proportion of the burden of non-communicable diseases (NCDs) is expected to increase to 57% by 2020. Moreover, according to the National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion, in 2012, about 117 million people in the US had one or more chronic health conditions, and one of four adults had two or more chronic health conditions. The growing geriatric population is a global phenomenon driving the demand for nutraceutical products. According to World Population Prospects, the 2015 Revision released by the United Nations in 2015, “between 2015 and 2030, the number of people in the world aged 60 years or over is projected to grow by 56%, from 901 million to 1.4 billion, and by 2050, the global population of older persons is projected to more than double its size in 2015, reaching nearly 2.1 billion.” Due to this, there may be a higher prevalence of health issues such as diarrhoea or constipation, IBS, gas, leaky gut, acid reflux, ulcerative colitis, bloating, malabsorption, and diverticulitis. This further stimulates the trend in the nutraceutical industry to deliver nutritional ingredients through fortified and functional food products, thus exhibiting growth opportunities for the food enzyme industry.
