Protease, lipase, and phospholipids are examples of enzymes that are acknowledged as alternatives to traditional chemicals and give solutions to problems associated with synthetic chemicals. As per Future Market Insights (FMI), the protease market is projected to rise at 7.8% CAGR, reaching US$ 3.94  Bn through 2031.

As synthetic chemicals used in industrial operations are toxic and can cause environmental hazards. Enzymes generated from plants and microbes, such as sugars and protease, have no detrimental environmental impact because they work under mild settings.

As a result, textile, protein hydrolysis, bread, brewing, dairy, and animal nutrition industries are widely adopting protease which is generated from plants, animals, and microorganisms. To achieve higher yields and cleaner goods, the leather industry has moved to proteases and trypsin instead of lime and sulphides.

As per FMI, amylase and protease are utilized to increase output in bakery and confectionary. Due to growing adoption of protease in bakery, the market is expected to register over 13.9% of sales during the forecast period.

As enzymes can also be utilized to boost the nutritional content of food and feed. Enzymes also reduce water usage, chemical waste, and by-product generation, posing little dangers to individuals and the environment. As a result, they are thought to be cost-effective, safe, and environmentally benign.

Chemically produced products can cause threat to human life and have a negative impact on the environment. The majority of industrial manufacturing enterprises are switching to safer, naturally produced products in place of harmful chemical products.
