Middle East and Africa Food Enzymes Market was worth $0.19 billion in 2021 and estimated to be growing at a CAGR of 9.7%, to reach $0.31 billion by 2026.
Enzymes are biochemical catalysts that are produced by human body. Some enzymes which are vital for digestion process like pepsin is produced by human body. But, not all the enzymes required by the body are produced. Some are obtained from external sources.
With the increase in awareness of nutritional diet and also the demand for packaged food increased the demand for food enzymes which enhance the digestion process by breaking down the complex carbohydrates and fats in to simpler molecules. Previously enzymes were considered to be non-toxic for people as they are already present in the food. But, extraction of enzymes from genetically engineered animals and microorganisms required the enzymes to be tested for safety.
The increased application of food enzymes in fermentation to produce alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages, increased demand for food enzymes by food product manufacturers to use in the processing of food are the major factors driving the market. Many technological advancements taking place in the food industry and the invention of different applications of food enzymes are also driving the market growth. High cost of research and development activities and consolidation of markets due to the buyouts made by major companies are retraining the market.
