World Enzymes

Strong gains are expected for enzymes used to produce food and beverages, cleaning products, and animal feed, as well as for those that reduce wastewater production and energy use.

World demand to increase 6.3% annually through 2017

World enzyme demand is forecast to increase 6.3 percent per year to nearly $7 billion in 2017. Demand will be driven by rising per capita incomes in developing countries, which will result in strong gains in enzymes associated with the production of food and beverages, cleaning products, and animal feed. Further supporting demand in industrial markets will be the environmental benefits of enzyme use, such as reduced wastewater production and energy use. In specialty markets, demand will benefit from falling costs of DNA sequencing, which will allow for rising use of enzymes in research and biotechnology and diagnostic applications. However, enzyme demand will face challenges in the large North American biofuel market as rising opposition to grain-based biofuels and delays in the commercialization of next generation cellulosic biofuel technologies limit advances.

Rising incomes in China, India to be key growth driver

The rapidly growing middle class populations of countries such as China and India will be a key driver of growth through the forecast period. Rising per capita incomes will support consumer demand for higher value goods, such as detergents and food products. Consumption of Western style diets, which are associated with demand for meat, baked goods, and dairy products, will continue to rise among emerging middle class populations. In turn, these foods will be increasingly produced through the use of enzymes, both in animal feed and in food processing applications. Compounding these positive effects will be strong overall economic and industrial growth, which will benefit a number of industrial enzyme markets. Similar trends in Central and South America, Eastern Europe, Africa, and the Middle East will lead to above average gains in these regions as well.

Enzymes to benefit from eco-friendly profile

In developed countries, economic and industrial growth will tend to be slower, resulting in more modest expansion of enzyme use. Additionally, the markets in North America, Western Europe, and Japan tend to be more mature, further limiting growth prospects. However, niche opportunities will arise, supported by the positive environmental profile enzymes offer. Enzymes that can substitute for non-renewable chemicals, reduce energy consumption, or decrease the production of harmful wastes will see the best opportunities. In the longer term, enzymes are expected to play a key role in the emergence of the renewable chemicals industry, which currently remains nascent.

Study coverage

This study analyzes the $5.1 billion world enzyme industry. It presents historical demand data for 2002, 2007 and 2012, and forecasts for 2017 and 2022 by market (e.g., food and beverage, cleaning products, biofuel production, animal feed, research and biotechnology, diagnostics), product (e.g., carbohydrases, proteases, polymerases, nucleases, lipases, phytases), world region, and for 16 countries.

The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 28 industry players, including Novozymes, DuPont and DSM.
