Dublin, 11 Feb. 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The “Industrial Enzymes Market by Type (Carbohydrases, Proteases, Lipases, Polymerases, and Nucleases), Application (Food and Beverages, Bioethanol, Animal Feed, Detergents, Wastewater, Soil, and Oil Treatment), Source, Formulation and Region – Global Forecast to 2026″ report has been added to from offer.

The global industrial enzymes market is estimated to be worth USD 6.6 billion in 2021. It is expected to reach USD 9.1 billion by 2026, registering a CAGR of 6.6% during the forecast period. Enzymes play an important role as a catalyst in the processing of several industrial products. Industrial enzymes are generally used as bulk enzymes in these and other industries. The market for industrial enzymes has witnessed significant growth as they are increasingly used as substitutes for chemicals, especially in food and beverages and bioethanol. The application of industrial enzymes is also increasing for detergents and as ingredients in the animal feed industry.

Asia-Pacific is expected to witness the highest growth of 7.81% during the forecast period.

The Asia-Pacific industrial enzymes market is dominated by their vast industrial applications in the region. Developed markets such as North America and Western Europe are becoming mature, which has resulted in faster growth in developing markets such as Asia-Pacific. For example, textile and leather has become one of the important industries in the Asia-Pacific region due to the development of technological innovations in machinery, synthetic fibers, logistics and globalization of business. Furthermore, the shift of industrial operations, such as textile and leather production, from the developed countries of North America and Western Europe to the Asia-Pacific region over the past decade has boosted the enzymes market industrial.

Commercialize the production of bioethanol from enzymatic processes supplying the lipase market.

Lipases are enzymes that catalyze the hydrolysis of lipids and constitute one of the important groups of biocatalysts with biotechnological applications. They are extracted from many species of plants, animals, bacteria, fungi and yeasts. Those derived from microorganisms are used in various industries, such as textiles and leather, bioethanol, paper and pulp, and wastewater treatment. Lipases are the main enzymes used to commercialize the production of bioethanol with enzymatic processes. As biological catalysts, they convert free fatty acids (FFA) and triacylglycerols into fatty acid methyl esters, which generate biofuel. Transesterification is the functional benefit seen in the paper and pulp industry due to the use of lipases.

The late bitterness of citrus represents an economic brake.

Pectinase was one of the first enzymes to be used and applied commercially for juice and wine processing. Its use in the juice industry is linked to a number of factors, particularly in clarification, maceration and extraction, stabilizing juice color during storage and increasing yield. In addition to pectinases, other enzymes such as hemicellulases and cellulase are used in the production of fruit juices, with the aim of optimizing the processing of these products. The phenomenon of late bitterness in certain citrus juices represents a significant economic brake on citrus growing worldwide. The application of microorganisms as a tool to convert bitter citrus juices into non-bitter products.
