Hansen (Denmark), Amano Enzymes (Japan), Roche Holding (Switzerland), Codexis (US), Sanofi (France), Merck (Germany), Enzyme Supplies (UK), Creative Enzymes (US), Enzyme Solutions (US), Enzymatic Deinking Technologies (US), and Biocatalysts (UK).
The food & beverage by application is projected to account for the largest share in the industrial enzyme market during the forecast period
Enzymes used in the food & beverage industry are distinguished into food additives and processing aids. However, most of the enzymes used in food & beverage products are considered as processing aids, and only a few are used as additives, such as lysozymes and invertases. Its use improves the flavor, texture, digestibility, and nutritional value of various food products. The augmentation of enzyme usage has benefitted the manufacturers in the food & beverage industry in mitigating the use of strong acids and bases, and lesser energy consumption & corrosive waste. Thus, these factors have been boosting the industrial usage of enzymes in the food & beverage.
The specialty enzyme segment is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period
Key application areas of specialty enzymes are pharmaceuticals, biocatalysts, diagnostics, and enzymes used research & biotechnology. The diagnostic industry is increasingly using specialty enzymes in food and clinical diagnostic industry. The clinical in-vitro diagnostic industry uses specialty enzymes for diagnostic procedures in hospital laboratories for routine urine analysis, blood chemistry determinations, along with immunological and microbiological testing. Growing applications of specialty enzymes in clinical in-vitro diagnostic has significantly fueled the market growth.
