Enzymes Market Segmentation
Based on the Product Insights, the market is segmented into Carbohydrase, Proteases, Lipases, Polymerases & Nucleases, and Others.
The carbohydrases segment dominated the market with a revenue share of over 45.0% in 2020. This is attributed to the growing demand from numerous end-use industries including animal feed, food and beverages, and pharmaceuticals.
Protease is mainly used for protein breakdown, the catalytic hydrolysis of protein peptides to amino acids, and in various applications such as animal feed, chemicals, detergents, food, pharmaceutical, and photography.
Lipases are used for the catalytic hydrolysis of fats or lipids. They are used for transporting, digesting, and processing dietary lipids such as fats, oils, and triglycerides. Rising demand for phospholipase as a biocatalyst in various industries including biodiesel, nutraceuticals, food, detergents, oil, bioremediation, agriculture, paper, cosmetics, and leather is anticipated to drive the market.
Based on the Type Insights, the market is segmented into Industrial Enzymes and Specialty Enzymes.
The industrial segment dominated the market with a revenue share of over 55.0% in 2020. This is attributed to the rising demand in various end-use industries such as food and beverages, detergent, animal feed, textile, paper and pulp, and wastewater.
Enzymes also play a prominent role in cellulosic conversion for the production of cellulosic ethanol. The increasing rate of fossil fuel depletion, along with the growing demand for green alternatives, is projected to increase the demand for biofuels, which, in turn, is likely to drive the market over the forecast period.
Based on the Source Insights, the market is segmented into Plants, Animals and Microorganisms.
The microorganisms segment dominated the market with a revenue share of over 80.0% in 2020. This is attributed to the increasing demand for fungi-based enzymes in numerous end-use industries.
The animals segment is another major segment after microorganisms. Animal-based enzymes are mainly procured from the pancreas and stomach of cattle and swine.
Plant-based enzymes are sourced from plants, for instance, bromelain is derived from pineapple and papain from papaya. Prominent enzymes found in plants include protease, lipase, cellulase, and amylase.
Based on the Regional Insights, the market is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Central & South America, and Middle East & Africa.
North America dominated the market with a revenue share of over 35.0% in 2020. This is attributed to a strong presence of various end-use companies in the food and beverage, pharmaceuticals, laundry detergent, and personal care and cosmetics industries, along with high scope for research and development activities in major countries of the region.
Europe is one of the major producers of medicinal, pharmaceutical, and cosmetic products. The presence of major pharmaceutical and cosmetics companies such as AstraZeneca plc, Beiersdorf, Hoffmann-La Roche Ltd., MerckKGaA, Sanofi, New Avon Company, and Unilever in the region is expected to propel the demand for enzymes.
The Asia Pacific region is expected to be a prominent market over the forecast period on account of the growing meat production, particularly in China.
