Dublin, Aug. 07, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Global Lipase Food Enzymes Markets, 2023-2029" report has been added to's offering.

The global lipase food enzymes market is projected to witness substantial growth, reaching a market size of $679.5 million by 2029. The market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 6.9% during the forecast period from 2023 to 2028.

The Role of Lipase Enzymes in the Food Industry

Lipase enzymes play a crucial role in breaking down oils and fats into their basic components, such as fatty acids and glycerol. These enzymes are naturally present in the human body and various microorganisms like bacteria, yeast, and fungi. In the food industry, lipase enzymes are commonly used as additives to create a variety of food products. They improve flavor, texture, and nutritional value, as well as extend the shelf life of food items.

Food enzymes, including lipase, offer various functional qualities and can emulsify different food components, enhancing the kinetic stability of food. Moreover, lipase enzymes have the advantage of being considered clean-label ingredients, aligning with the growing demand for cleaner and more natural food products.

Market Growth Factors

Several factors contribute to the growth of the lipase food enzymes market:

  1. Diverse Applications: Lipase enzymes find applications in various industries, including medicine and diagnostics. They aid in diagnosing acute pancreatitis and other gastrointestinal diseases through blood testing and help with pancreatic enzyme replacement therapy (PERT) by breaking down fats into lipids. The rising consumption of processed foods and meat, along with increased awareness of animal health, is further propelling the demand for lipase enzymes.
  2. Biosensor Technology: Directed evolution techniques have enhanced the characteristics of lipases, making them suitable for various industrial applications, including the production of enantiopure medicines, flavor compounds, natural polymers, and biodiesel. With the development of programmable enzymes, the market is expected to witness significant expansion.

Market Restraining Factors

While the lipase food enzymes market is experiencing growth, some factors hinder its progress:

  1. Limited Range of Temperatures and pH: Environmental factors greatly impact how food enzymes operate, affecting their functionality. Efforts to create enzymes that can function in a wider range of temperatures and pH levels are ongoing but still face limitations.

COVID-19 Impact

The food industry faced challenges during the pandemic, affecting consumer demand and income. Temporary business closures highlighted the interconnectedness of various industries. While the industrial uses of lipase increased, the demand in the food industry decreased due to negative performance. However, the pandemic also increased awareness of healthy food, positively impacting lipase demand.
