Business/Investing Health & Fitness

According to MarketsandMarkets, the enzymes market is estimated to be valued at USD 10.0 billion in 2019 and is projected to reach USD 14.7 billion by 2025, recording a CAGR of 6.7% in terms of value. Due to the increasing environmental concerns among people, the importance of manufacturing biofuels is increasing. These factors are projected to drive the growth for the enzymes market during the forecast period.

Enzymes play an important role as a catalyst in the processing for several industries, pharmaceutical, and biotechnology products.

Industrial enzymes are enzymes that are commercially used in a variety of industries such as pharmaceuticals, chemical production, biofuels, food & beverage, and consumer products. Due to advancements in recent years, biocatalysis through isolated enzymes is considered more economical than use of whole cells. Enzymes may be used as a unit operation within a process to generate a desired product, or may be the product of interest. Industrial biological catalysis through enzymes has experienced rapid growth in recent years due to their ability to operate at mild conditions, and exceptional chiral and positional specificity, things that traditional chemical processes lack. Isolated enzymes are typically used in hydrolytic and isomerization reactions. Whole cells are typically used when a reaction requires a co-factor. Although co-factors may be generated in vitro, it is typically more cost-effective to use metabolically active cells.


In addition, enzymes are increasingly used as a substitute for chemicals, which is significantly contributing to the growth of the enzymes market. These enzymes are specifically used in industries such as food & beverage and pharmaceutical. The feed industry is also witnessing significant growth in the usage of enzymes as ingredients in the production process.
