Dairy Enzymes Market

2020 Analysis and Review: Dairy Enzymes Market by Application – Milk, Cheese, Yogurt, et al for 2020-2030


Widespread and high number of cases of digestive disorders, especially in terms of lactose intolerance around the world has bolstered the demand for probiotic, fermented dairy offerings. Yogurt in conventional and beverage forms have gained popularity among consumers, with the demand for natural, probiotic solutions for digestive health on the rise.

Also, such dairy products have been proven to be safe for consumption among people of all age groups. Diet trends covering healthy snacking and hydration habits are key factors bolstering demand. Also, greater awareness about the benefits of personalized nutrition solutions are aiding growth in the long term.

Increasingly levels of competition in the market, and developments in terms of expertise and technology in the dairy industry are keeping the use of dairy enzymes profitable. Also, strong demand for processed foods, with dairy ingredients are likely to drive use in low-lactose Daily product offerings.

Value-Addition Applications of Dairy Enzymes

Enzymes play have been rapidly gaining popularity among diary producers in terms of value addition to milk products. Dairy enzymes play roles ranging from the addition of dietary fiber, reducing the risk of lactose intolerance, flavorings in ripe cheese.

Dairy enzymes are also used for modifying properties of milk proteins, acceleration of cheese production, and application as coagulant in varied milk products. Advances in food enzyme discovery technologies, in terms of extraction from microbial sources, for the dairy industry will contribute to market growth. Consequently, commercial, food-grade soluble microbial enzymes are likely to be a fast-growing segment in the near future.

Commercial Lipase Finds Role in Flavoring Applications

Lipase enzymes are largely used in the application of flavor development for dairy products, and in niche applications in the processing of fats in food. These enzymes are particularly popular among cheese manufacturers for effective generation of fatty acids through hydrolysis processes.

For instance, Romano cheese makes use of lamb pre-gastric lipase, while Camembert variants use penicillium variant of lipase enzyme. Lipase enzymes are also effective in improving texture of dairy products. Commercial diary lipase enzymes are also finding roles in boosting the shelf life of products such as butter and margarine.

Lipase enzymes also find the role of biosensors in the dairy industry, which helps in the detection of potential contaminants in product offerings. Also, microbial lipase plays roles which cannot be fulfilled through chemical processes including the processing of waste from the food sector. These factors are likely aid long term market development.

South Asia & Pacific Exhibits Prolific Growth

While in a fairly nascent stage, the regional market for dairy enzymes in the South Asia & Pacific region is reflecting strong growth. The developments in the region can be largely attributed to the growing consumption of diary products in combination with health-conscious dietary changes being adopted here.

Also, consumers in the region are reflecting a growing demand for flavored milk and yogurt products. The vast number of regional market players in the region has created a competitive landscape, with a huge variety of dairy products using enzyme ingredients available in the South Asia & Pacific market.

Furthermore, a large portion of the population in the region are affected by some degree of lactose intolerance. Consequently, the demand for suitable dairy enzymes is expected to rise strongly for the foreseeable future.
