Microorganisms segment accounted for the maximum market share in 2022

Microorganisms segment accounted for major global market share in 2022, and is likely to retain its position over the anticipated period. The wide range of applications and uses of microorganism source including detergents and cleaning products and its high prevalence among large number of consumers across the globe, are key factors influencing the growth of the segment market. In addition, microbial protein hydrolysis enzymes have significant number of advantages such as cheap production costs and surge in the use of fermentation and genetic manipulation, which is enhancing the demand for microorganism sources worldwide.

Plant segment is projected to exhibit fastest growth rate during study period, which is largely attributed to rise in the demand for environment-friendly products and its ability to provide effective results, where enzymatic hydrolysis increases the solubility and make it possible to produce protein-based beverages with enhanced digestibility.

Microbial product segment held the significant market revenue share in 2022

Microbial product segment held the significant market share in terms of revenue in 2022, on account increasing use of microbial protein hydrolysis in large number of applications including industrial processes and products and in the food industry. Additionally, microbial protease enzymes are frequently used in the baking industry to produce bread, baked foods, waffles, and crackers for reducing the mixing time, & to regulate the gluten strength, are also anticipated to fuel the segment market soon. Moreover, due to widespread applications of the product, several large market players have significantly increased the production at commercial levels coupled with the increased prevalence towards the discovering new strains with unique properties and substantial activity, that is offering huge potential for the segment market. 

Food segment is expected to witness highest growth during forecast period

Food segment recorded highest growth during the study period, mainly driven by change in consumer consumption patterns and interest towards the processes and canned food across high-middle income countries like US, France, Canada, and India. Shifting trend to the urban areas among population and their hectic lifestyles, led to increased demand for packaged food products, and will stimulate the segment market. Detergent segment led the industry market with highest revenue share in 2022, mainly due to growing demand for detergent in the industry for removing protein strains along with the rising hygienic concerns and measure to control spreading the various types of infectious diseases across the globe.

North America region dominated the global market in 2022

North America garnered the largest share. Region’s growth can be largely accelerated by increasing demand for several types of fortified foods and meat products and incorporation of high technological advancements that made these enzymes available for numerous applications such as pharmaceuticals, food, textiles & leather, and detergents among many others. Additionally, several large companies from developed regions like North America have significantly invested in enzyme-related technologies to boost their production and productivity, which is further enhancing the growth of the market in the region.

For instance, in December 2022, Ingredient Optimized, announced that they have partnered with Nutrabound Labs, a Texas-based manufacturing facility to offer newly developed and launched ioCollagen. Under this agreement, by sidestepping the enzymatic hydrolysis process, taste is more improved as compared to standard protein isolates.

Asia Pacific region is expected to grow at substantial growth rate over the projected period, which is highly attributable the presence of several unexplored prospects in the emerging economies and growing population burden in the region. The rising consumer demand for innovative, convenient, and easy cleaning and detergent products along with the increasing implementation on experimental technology platforms for several skillful applications, providing considerable growth opportunities for the market.
