Market Overview

Global lipase market is forecasted to register a CAGR of 8.8% during the forecast period (2020-2025).

  • Lipases are majorly derived from microbial sources, compared to animal sources, due to several features, such as the variety of catalytic activities, high production capacity in a short time, and easy genetic manipulations.
  • The rising awareness among people, about the need for healthy and non-chemical ingredients, is pushing several industries including animal feed to use lipase enzymes.
  • The lack of transparency in the laws and regulations, concerning lipase patents across the world, is a primary restraining factor for the market growth. 

Scope of the Report

The lipase is derived from two main sources which include animals and microorganisms (fungal lipase). The lipase different sources have wide applications in different end-user industries such as dairy. bakery and confectionery, animal feed and others. Also, the market is studied for different countries under each region to give a broader perspective.

Key Market Trends

Wide Application In Food And Beverage Industry

Microbial lipases are widely used in the food industry, due to their substrate specificity. They work under mild conditions and are highly stable in organic solvents. Some of the common lipases used in the food industry include lysophospholipase, phospholipase, triacylglycerol,  and so on. They are widely used in the processing of fats and oils, such as: modification of flavors through the synthesis of esters of short-chain fatty acids or selective hydrolysis of fat triglycerides to release free fatty acids, elimination of fat content in several food products, such as meat and fish products, to produce lean meat and also the lipases play a vital role at the fermenting stage of sausage manufacturing, by manipulating long-chain fatty acids, which are released during ripening.

Europe Holds A Significant share in The Market

Growing demand for processed foods, coupled with increasing awareness about health-conscious products is significantly propelling the growth of enzymes including lipase in the European food industry, which in turn is driving the growth of the world’s lipase market. In terms of the type segmentation, carbohydrases dominate the market, followed by proteases and lipases. Due to the high consumption of bread and baked goods in Europe, the bakery is the largest application segment in the region. In the bakery segment, lipase help by improving dough stability and increasing the shelf life of end products. The use of lipase in the dairy industry comes in second with the wide use of lipase in cheese processing. New technologies are emerging in Europe to produce genetically modified organisms strains, which can perform in adverse operational conditions and improve process efficiency.

Competitive Landscape

The global lipase market is a highly competitive and fragmented market with increasing presence of global as well as regional players across the globe. Owing to the wide application of lipase in different end-user industries the active players are embarking on expanding their production facility as well as product innovation to attain significant market share in the global market. Some of the major players are expanding their global presence by acquiring small scale manufacturers in foreign countries. While companies such as DuPont, are investing in marketing and branding to increase their product promotion and achieve strong sale.
