DUBLIN, Ireland, July 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/3xgvqh/food_enzymes) has announced the addition of the "Food Enzymes Market: Global Trends & Forecasts To 2018" report to their offering.
This report examines the global trends and forecasts for the food enzymes market discussing types (carbohydrate, protease, lipase), applications (beverages, dairy, bakery) and sources (microorganisms, plants, animals).
Food enzymes act as a highly selective catalyst and function in metabolic reactions and in the conversion of complex molecules to smaller ones. Enzymes form an integral part of the global food additives industry. They are primarily involved in the conversion of carbohydrate to carbohydrase, protein to protease, and lipid to lipase. Food enzymes such as carbohydrase, protease, and lipase have anti-staling, digestive, and softening properties, which increase the shelf life of foods. The advent of such versatile functions has escalated their usage in application-specific ingredients and new upscale end-use products.
Carbohydrase has diverse applications within the food industry, making it the largest type of food enzyme, accounting for almost 70% of the market. Protease and lipase both have their major application in the dairy sector. They are mainly produced from microbial sources because of lower production costs and higher productivity. Comparatively, plants and animals are the depleting source of enzymes. The US is one of the largest players in the food enzyme business due to the excessive demand for processed food products, followed by China.
This research report provides a comprehensive analysis of the global market, which is witnessing faster growth on account of its diverse applications in the beverages, bakery and confectioneries, processed foods, and dairy products sectors. This market was examined in terms of value on regional and country levels. The changing trends in the consumption of food enzymes reflect the increased product penetration and purchasing power of the global population in the emerging economies, as well as the shift towards exotic and novel flavors in the developed nations. The market is predicted to continue flourishing in both developing and developed regions. The growth is also attributed to the growing demands for healthy and nutritious processed foods.
This report also describes the major players in this business across the globe. The growth strategies of market players have been identified and analyzed. The manufacturers are keenly aware of the emerging Asian and Latin American markets as potential drivers of the food enzymes business. Novozymes (Denmark) is the key player and accounts for a little over two-fifth of the global market. DSM (The Netherlands) and DuPont (US) are the competitive companies which together account for almost one-third of the market. Chr. Hansen (Denmark) is also one of the largest players in food enzymes market.
It is expected that the global food enzyme market will reach $2.3 billion by 2018; North America is expected to lead the market, followed by Europe and Asia-Pacific. Asia-Pacific is the fastest growing market followed by RoW.
The global foods industry is fast inculcating the use of enzymes in light of the numerous advantages they present. These include carbohydrase, protease, lipase, and other enzymes, with carbohydrase encompassing prevalent types such as amylase, cellulase, pectinase, lactase, and others.
