Proteases Market - Growth, Trends, COVID-19 Impact, and Forecasts (2022 - 2027)
Global protease market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 5.8% during the forecast period (2020 - 2025).
Proteases also called as peptidases, are the largest group of enzymes having an invincible role in many industries, especially in the arena of food, detergents and pharmaceuticals. Proteases encompass about 60% of the total enzyme market and stand amongst the most precious commercial enzymes.
Protease enzymes are diverse ingredients. It helps in reducing the manufacturing costs of food products and also to improve the digestibility of some foods, they are critical for the development of many of today's FMCG products. The main reason for the growth of this market is the multiple uses of proteases in diverse industries. Its eco-friendly nature due to its non-toxic and non-pathogenic attributes is an added advantage that leads to a surge in the market.
Food enzymes primarily Carbohydrase, Protease, Lipase, and others have significantly paved their in an increasing number of food and beverage industries across the globe, thus accelerating the growth of the market. Alkaline proteases have been used in the preparation of protein hydrolysates of high nutritional value with a well-defined peptide profile. It also plays a great role in meat tenderization, especially beef. Among the seafood products, food enzymes, particularly protease, are catalyzed for the following benefits: improved oil separation and higher yield, thus saving energy, enhanced protein value, and digestibility with better functional property such as emulsification, solubility, fat- and water-binding and improved removal of residual meat, in order to achieve 'clean' fish frames, for its use as a source of calcium.
Asia-Pacific is the fastest-growing region due to the economic and operational benefits of proteases. They are presenting an untapped potential for the growth of protease enzymes in the food, detergent, as well as, pharmaceutical industries. The protease market is witnessing rapid growth due to the increasing demand for processed food and animal feed industry in the region and wide applications of the enzymes including protease in the processed food industry are driving the market in Asian region.
The global proteases market is gaining competition globally. Nonetheless, the market exhibits the strong presence of key players such as Novozymes, DSM, DuPont. The key players have intensely embarked on industry consolidation by leveraging their distribution network, entering into partnerships with local distributors especially in the emerging economies and developing new products with customization for different end-user industries. Acquisitions and mergers play a crucial role in industry consolidation. Companies adopt strategic acquisition by considering the geographical demands, tastes & preferences, and by expanding their base businesses
