Alpha Amylase Market

Global Market Study on Alpha Amylase: Growing Usage as Substitute for Emulsifiers in Food Industry

Alpha Amylase Market Segmented By Powder & Granules, Liquid Form from Bacterial, Fungal, Plant & Animals Source



Feed prices are prohibitively high with detrimental effects on producer profitability and cost, which compels farmers to look for alternatives without hampering animal performance, so as to increase production profitability. Alpha amylase is known to have digestive properties that enable animals with improved digestive systems, with benefits such as increased fat percentage in cows, along with high milk yield in ruminants, thus increasing the profitability of farmers with reducing the amount of grain for feeding.

  • For instance, Sinobios provides Animal Nutrition Feed Grade Fungal Alpha Amylase Enzyme and Animal Feed Additives Bacterial Alpha Amylase Powder as feed additives for improving the utilization of energy, lower feed conversion ratio, and improved animal production performance.

 As such, the global alpha amylase market size is set to experience a decent 1.7X volume growth over the forecast period of 2020 to 2030.

Alpha Amylase Market Trends

Bio-Preservation Trend Fueling Alpha Amylase Demand from Food Industry: Demand for bio-preservation is increasing due consumer demand for necessary safety standards in food products with increased shelf life. With keeping food products appealing, producers of dairy, beverages, and fresh baking products are focusing on finding natural ways to keep their portfolios fresh for a longer time. As today, artificial preservatives fail to meet the expectations of modern consumers, alpha amylase plays an essential part of the bio-preservation process. Alpha amylase is capable of preserving food and providing safety standards to different food products.

    • According to the Food & Health Survey 2017, more than 70% of consumers check expiry dates in at supermarkets. This shows that, while consumers value clean-label, natural products, shelf life is also a key driver of purchasing behavior.

Alpha Amylase as Substitute for Emulsifiers in Food Industry to Drive Sales: Consumer preference toward chemical-free, natural, and organic food has reduced the usage of food additives, including emulsifiers. Alpha amylase has emerged as a replacement for emulsifiers in the food industry, mainly for bakery products, as it provides equal benefits along with increasing the shelf life and freshness in industrialized breads such as pan bread, and reducing the financial loss for manufacturers caused by staling. The major advantage of alpha amylase over other emulsifiers is that it is identified as a clean label ingredient. Therefore, growing clean label movement in the food industry is offering further potential sales benefits for the alpha amylase market.
