African Brewing Enzymes Market Analysis

The African brewing enzymes market is expected to record a CAGR of 4.5% during the forecast period (2022-2027).

The COVID19 pandemic led to tremendous losses across the world. Various sectors and businesses were affected due to the strict stay-at-home orders imposed by numerous countries. The brewing enzymes market is no exception to this loss. Production facilities and manufacturing units were shut, which led to growth disruptions.

The market is mainly driven by the increase in demand for domestic consumption of premium products of beer and alcoholic beverages with better taste and quality. Growth in the craft beer market acts as a major driver of the growth in this market. This results in an increased number of independent breweries, microbreweries, and brewpubs on the regional level. In addition, the rise in technological innovations has further boosted the market's growth.

However, easing the lockdown restrictions is helping the wine enzymes market regain lost growth.

African Brewing Enzymes Market Trends

This section covers the major market trends shaping the African Brewing Enzymes Market according to our research experts:

Rising Demand for Protease in the Food Industries

The demand for protease has witnessed significant growth as a brewing enzyme in recent years. Proteases are used in brewing for many benefits, and the most important two are digestion of protein for clarification and facilitation of malting. Its other functionalities include improving the brewed drink's fermentation, chilling, and storage qualities. It also increases the degree of solubility of the proteins. Accordingly, it lowers the viscosity of beer, thus developing a good condition for yeast growth by satisfying the availability of free amino nitrogen which is necessary for yeast growth. During mashing, protease softens the kernel layer by hydrolyzing the cell wall protein leading to the exposure of the starch to the mashing enzymes and, accordingly, better mashing and wort fermentability.

South Africa to Drive the Regional Market

South Africa has been recorded to have the largest production of beer in the African region. As a result of the increased demand for alcoholic beverages in the country, the demand for the brewing and distilling industries has experienced significant growth during the past few years. According to Barth-Haas Group, beer production in the African countries was recorded to be the highest in South Africa, followed by Nigeria, Ethiopia, Angola, Cameroon, and Kenya in 2020. Consumers across South Africa are seeking distinctive and flavorful beers, pushing the market for brewing enzymes such as amylases, proteases, glucanase, and cellulase in the alcoholic beverage market.
