Based on the methods of production, the proteases market is segmented into fermentation and extraction. Fermentation dominated the proteases market due to producer’s reliance on microbial sources and economic efficiency involved as the process is time and cost saving.
The market is also segmented on the basis of formulations into liquid, lyophilized powder, and others. Lyophilized powder dominated the proteases market in terms of formulation due to its functional properties as it increases the shelf life of the product and also due to the development & advancement of technology such as encapsulation.
On the basis of products, renin dominated the animal product segment for proteases owing to its physiological benefits and its major use in the food & beverages industry such as cheese making. Papain dominated the plant product segment of proteases due to its health benefits such as boosting digestion, supporting the immune system, acting as an antioxidant, and others, along with its functional properties such as relatively heat-resistant enzyme makes it more preferable. Alkaline is the largest microbial product in the proteases market owing to its functional properties as it is more stable at high temperatures and it also finds its application majorly in the soaps and detergent industry which is the largest industry for enzyme application.
“China and India: The future of the proteases industry”
North America dominated the global proteases market in 2015.The Asia-Pacific region is projected to be the fastest-growing market from 2016 to 2021. The markets are growing in China and India due to the increasing disposable income of the people, growing urban population, abundance of human capital along with government support to promote the growth of biotechnology, and ease of doing business in developing countries, making way for profitable returns.
