Market Insights

The African agricultural enzymes industry is expected to grow at a CAGR of 6.2% over 2017-2022. Agricultural enzymes act as biological catalysts and find extensive use in agriculture-based biological procedures like – processing of crop and crop residues, silage fermentation and bioprocessing of fibers. They are also popularly employed in animal feed and supplement products.

Market Dynamics

The rising popularity of organic agriculture, increasing focus on agriculture biotechnology and awareness on environment-friendly agriculture practices are driving the regional agricultural enzymes market. Most of the agricultural enzymes application demand comes from crop processing and animal feed additives manufacturing industries. Cost-effective production and application of enzymes also form major reasons for growth in the price sensitive markets. High R&D costs and unclear regulations may create obstacles for the market.

Market Segmentation

On the basis of product types, the market is segmented into carbohydrases, proteases, lipases, polymerases and nucleases; carbohydrases is the most popular with varied applications, followed by proteases and lipases. The application is by crop protection, fertility and growth enhancing products. Enzyme-based pesticides and fertilizers help farmers to enjoy healthier crops and higher yields; direct application into the field acts as agriculture input enhancers. Crop type application includes cereals, grains, fruits, vegetables, oilseeds, and pulses.

South Africa is expected to see the fastest growth in terms of regional demand. Though the market size is small in countries like Egypt, they would grow positively.
