Ease of use in industrial applications boosting the usage of the liquid form
Liquid enzymes offer the potential to completely replace the use of chemicals in wastewater treatment, as enzymes can break down the organic matter faster and make the water treatment process more efficient due to the lack of chemicals. The usage of liquid enzymes has been bolstering the wastewater treatment industry. Many developed countries from the Middle Eastern and North African regions having water scarcity issues have been using liquid enzymes in the wastewater treatment process.
Being temperature-sensitive discouraging the industrial usage of animal-based enzymes
Initially, animals were the only source of enzymes. The major source of animal enzymes is the pancreas or stomach of the animal. Animal-based enzymes were specifically extracted from cows and swine. Unlike all other enzymes, animal enzymes are associated with numerous concerns, as they function only at low pH levels. These enzymes are also found to be temperature-sensitive. The most common animal enzymes are trypsin, pancreatin, and chymotrypsin. However, these enzymes are destroyed due to acidic conditions before they can perform their actual function. Thus, due to the temperature sensitivity, most animal enzymes are substituted by plant- and microorganism-based enzymes. This has illustrated a steady decrease in the demand for animal enzymes, thereby lowering their share in the market. Furthermore, enzymes derived from animal sources are unstable at a low pH environment, resulting in high costs for industrial applications. Animal-based enzymes are delicate, which requires extra care during handling and preparation, further increasing the cost of production.

Polymerases & nucleases forming an essential part of food biotechnology advancements
Polymerases & nucleases have been grouped as they both work on nucleic acid polymers, such as ribonucleic acid (RNA) and deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA), and are commonly used in similar applications. These types of enzymes catalyze the synthesis of deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) and ribonucleic acid (RNA) polymers, as they are essential for all nucleic acid processing, including replication, repair, recombination, and transcription. The core structure and properties of polymerases are highly conserved through evolutions, as they function in coordination with several other proteins to synthesize nucleic acids in an accurate, efficient, and well-regulated manner.

North America dominated the industrial enzymes market during the forecast period.
The North American industrial enzymes market is led by their wide industrial applications. Technological advancements have made enzymes available for a wide range of applications. The North American region is the largest market for industrial enzymes, owing to the development of novel and superior performing products, developed technologies, and global industrialization. The US is the dominating country in the North American industrial enzymes market. However, the market in this region has reached maturity, and the use of enzymes has become standard practice. According to the Alltech Feed Survey in 2019, North America witnessed a steady growth of 2% in feed production over the last year. This is due to the increase in the growth of major species, with beef and poultry leading at 3.0% each. This has positively impacted the usage of enzymes in feed in the North American region.
Key players in this market include DuPont (US), Associated British Foods plc (UK), DSM (Netherlands), Novozymes (US), CHr. Hansen Holdings A/S (Denmark), and Kerry Group (Ireland).
