The global bromelain market has witnessed significant growth in the historical period registering a CAGR of 2.9% in the historical period and was valued at 40.5 Bn in 2023. The market is expected to grow steadily with increasing consumption and awareness about benefits related to bromelain.
Derived from the pineapple plant, the bromelain enzyme finds various applications across different end-use industries. At the industrial level, bromelain is used to digest proteins. The proteolytic nature of bromelain finds application in the food and beverage industry where it is largely used as a meat tenderizer. With added benefits such as anti-inflammation and immunity boosting properties, the enzyme is being increasingly used in dietary supplements. Bromelain also finds application as a viable solution to several energy and resource consuming processes in industries such as leather and paper processing.
The meat industry is a large part of the global food & beverages sector and there is a continuous and rapidly rising consumer demand for processed meat and ready-to-cook and ready-to-eat meat dishes, owing to the ease of consumption of these ready meat food products. Bromelain is in great demand in the F&B industry to tenderize red meat. Traditional methods of meat tenderization using the process of marinating is time consuming and requires a significant amount of resources. The Bromelain enzyme – owing to its inherent properties to tenderize meat – helps reduce post process preparation time and reduces production costs significantly. This is anticipated to boost market demand for the enzyme in the coming years.
The global market for bromelain is estimated to reach an approximate valuation of 60.5 Bn in the forecast period.
“Increasing demand from the household care industry”
The detergent industry is the largest single industry in terms of consumption of enzymes, contributing to around a quarter of the global sales of enzymes. The household care industry has adopted the usage of enzymes extensively over its offerings through the last decade, in which, proteases and amylases are the active ingredients. This is expected to fuel the growth of the bromelain market, resulted by the increasing demand from the household care industry over the forecast period. Also, benefits like low washing temperatures and clean labels for manufacturers are expected to boost the demand for bromelain, as more and more manufacturers are looking to include enzyme-added offerings to get a competitive edge in the market.
“Growing meat industry”
The meat industry in the region dominates the total food and beverages industry, with processed, ready-to-cook, and ready-to-eat products capturing retail space rapidly, owing to their ease of consumption and value-added offerings. A major application of the bromelain enzyme is tenderizing red meat, which is otherwise traditionally done with a lot of resources and methods involving time-consuming marinating processes. This can be significantly reduced by the use of the bromelain enzyme, as such, reducing post process preparation time, and reducing production cost significantly. This is attributed to be a driving force for bromelain enzymes over the forecast period.
“Advent of bromelain enzymes in the cosmetic industry”
In 2016, the U.K. was the largest worldwide exporter of vibrant and innovative cosmetics, which is growing in value of both, imports and exports by 13% and 13.1%, respectively, over 2015. Within the EU, Ireland, Germany, and France are the top players in the cosmetics market, by continuously delivering innovative and best products. Ireland and Germany rank at the top in exports as well as for domestic markets, which is continuously being driven by new innovations and techniques, and rising trends in the cosmetics industry. Wide application of bromelain helps in treating acne, wrinkles, and dry skin. It also helps in post-injection bruising and swelling.
“The advent of dietary supplements”
With busy lifestyles and hectic work schedules amongst the rising millennial population in major urban regions of Asia Pacific, the population has inclined themselves towards unhealthy eating habits; foods which are quick to consume at an ease of availability. The adaptability of ready-to-eat and ready-to-cook food products is capturing the wide consumer segment, with a rising demand from working women and professionals. The rising health awareness among them for supplement usage is going to impact the market in a positive way during the forecast period. Also, an increasing geriatric population will also lead to the growth of the market, as the old population majorly suffers from joint pains and osteoarthritis.
“Presence of allergens”
The population who are allergic to pineapple is also allergic to bromelain. This allergy may vary from mild nasal congestion to severe anaphylactic shock, leading to a complex medical condition. A huge North American population is reported to be sensitive to one or another kind of allergy. Consumers in the region are more concerned about the allergen labels on products. This is expected to act as a restraint for the bromelain market over the forecast period.
What is the value share held by United States for the bromelain market?
North America holds 36.6% of the global bromelain market value share while United States holds 32.3 of the market share.
The detergent industry in North America is the largest consumer of enzymes and the household care industry extensively utilizes enzymes such as bromelain in various products. The meat industry in North America is on an upward growth trajectory, owing to increasing consumption of meat products by the population. Bromelain being the most sought after meat tenderizing agent is in great demand in the F&B industry across North America. A trending development in this region is the adoption of bromelain in teeth whitening products. Oral care product manufacturers are now including bromelain-added products in their offerings.
How is the Latin American Bromelain Market Faring?
Brazil is the leading consumer of poultry feed and feed additives in Latin America. There is a growing demand for poultry meat in the region. The carbohydrate and protein enhancing solutions for the animal feed market are driving the growth in demand for enzymes such as bromelain. Addition of the bromelain enzyme improves the digestibility of cereal containing feeds. Also, Brazil and Argentina are the two largest consumers and exporters of meat in Latin America and consequently, there has been a steadily increasing demand for bromelain across the region.
