Top 5 Vendors in the Global Food Enzymes Market from 2016 to 2020: Technavio

LONDON--()--Technavio has announced the top five leading vendors in their recent global food enzymes market report. This research report also lists five other prominent vendors that are expected to impact the market during the forecast period.

The carbohydrase class of food enzymes dominated the market in 2015. The segment is likely to sustain its market share over the forecast period owing to their significant use in most end-user applications. On the contrary, the market for proteases is likely to grow at a higher rate than the others.

By region, North America held the largest market share in 2015 and is foreseen to grow considerably during 2016-2020. The rising awareness about the use of food enzymes and the growth in the end-user application segments, especially the processed foods and the food and beverages industries, are driving the market growth in the region.

Competitive vendor landscape

The market is highly competitive in Europe and the US, while it is moderate in APAC. The EU has a well-defined regulatory system governing the production and sales of enzymes in the region. The US has a strict framework regulating anti-competitive practices, due to this factor there are many local and global players operating in the market.

The global food enzymes market is moderately fragmented with the presence of many small players and a few large vendors. Some of these vendors have an absolute monopoly in certain regions. These players have a vast geographical presence with production facilities located worldwide,” says Swapnil Tejveer Sharma, a lead additives, adhesives, and sealants analyst from Technavio.

The report also states that India is a rapidly evolving market with the scope for the high demand for enzyme products where a lack of awareness and access to technology are the limiting factors. However, the challenge is fading with the entry of multinational players such as DuPont Danisco, DSM, and Novozymes. In addition, many small regional vendors are also present in the market.
