Dairy Enzymes Market Analysis

The global dairy enzymes market is projected to register a CAGR of 7.37% during the forecast period (2022-2027).

COVID-19 has had a slightly unfavorable influence on the dairy enzymes market. Reduced intake of dairy products like cheese and flavored yogurt significantly impacted the need for related enzymes in the long run. Furthermore, regulations on the food service business have harmed demand indirectly. On the other hand, market players are likely to seek ways to limit their losses during COVID-19. Growing applications of dairy enzymes in fortified and functional foods and beverages could benefit market players as customers seek immunity-boosting, tailored nutrition solutions during the pandemic.

The market is driven by the increasing consumption of cheese, yogurt, and other dairy products in the developing markets. Increasing competition in the market for staying ahead in the dynamic dairy sector requires the best technology and expertise to remain flexible, efficient, and profitable.

The rising demand for various dairy-incorporated processed foods is also boosting sales. With the growing concern about lactose intolerance, dairy enzymes are increasing in low-lactose products.

Dairy Enzymes Market Trends

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

Increasing Digestive Heath Concerns are Boosting the Demand for Probiotic Products

The high prevalence of digestive disorders has boosted the demand for fermented milk products worldwide. Yogurt is an example of a probiotic milk drink that is available in both drinkable form and in the traditional form - in different flavors, making it one of the most preferred food products by consumers who are seeking products that provide benefits to their digestive health. Probiotics are a driving force within the booming digestive health products category, and people of all ages are consuming them. The progressive inclination of the consumers toward digestive health-oriented products has kept probiotic food products as a requisite. For Instance, According to ITC Trade Map, the Imported volume of yogurt in the United Kingdom in 2021 accounted for 282980 tons, compared to 219085 tons in 2019. The ongoing trends of healthy hydration and healthy snacking are the other essential factors augmenting the sales of fermented dairy products across different regions. This, in turn, will boost the market growth.

Asia-Pacific Region is Exhibiting A Growing Demand

The market for dairy enzymes in the Asia-Pacific region is in its initial growth stage. This is majorly attributed to the changing food habits of the people, including the consumption of dairy products for breakfast. Products like yogurt drinks are experiencing a growing trend in the Asia-Pacific market due to their convenience. To some extent, the presence of drinkable yogurts and their increasing popularity are expected to bridge the yogurt consumption gap created in the past couple of years. The heavy competition in the market, due to the presence of various large and small players, including several regional players, has led to a huge number of products in the market. This, in turn, has developed the Asia-Pacific region into a competitive market.

Dairy Enzymes Market News

In June 2021, International Flavors & Fragnances Inc (IFF) launched a new enzyme for dairy products, "Nurica" in the United States. Nurica harnesses the lactose present in milk to naturally generate a high yield of prebiotic galacto-oligosaccharides fibers. The ingredient reduces sugar and lactose levels.

In March 2021, Amano Enzyme released umamizyme pulse, a non-GMO enzyme designed for use in various plant protection products to produce a pleasant savory flavor.

In March 2020, Novozyme launched Saphera Fiber, a new lactase enzyme to increase the fibers' content while reducing sugar in fermented and non-fermented dairy products. The lactase enzyme works by converting lactose contained in the milk into GOS fibers ( galactooligosaccharides).
