Industrial Enzymes Market

Market Leaders: BASF and Novozymes are Focusing on Partnerships, Acquisitions, and Investment Strategies to Strengthen their Market Position in Industrial Enzymes Market

The global industrial enzymes market is estimated to be valued at USD 6.6 billion in 2021. It is projected to reach USD 9.1 billion by 2026, recording a CAGR of 6.7% during the forecast period. Enzymes are considered functional proteins, also known as catalysts, required for normal cellular functions. These catalytic proteins assist in the performance of biochemical reactions. They lower the activation energy of the reaction and then induce it. They get affected by changes in environmental factors, such as pH, temperature, and substrate concentration. Enzyme presence does not affect the nature of the end product. They find applications in food & beverages, feed, detergents, textiles & leather, paper & pulp, wastewater treatment, bioethanol, sugar processing, and other applications (starch processing, cosmetics & personal care, and oilfield chemicals).

Key players in this market include BASF (Germany), Novozymes (Denmark), DuPont (US), Kerry (Ireland), and DSM (Netherlands)
