Brewing Enzymes Market: An Introduction to Beer Production

The conventional beer brewing process involves soaking and heating the barley grain, which ultimately produces its own enzymes, that convert barley starch into fermentable sugars. Essentially, the barley is malted, kilned, post which wort is manufactured from the extracted malt. Furthermore, the wort is cooked, treated, fermented, filtered, and then stabilized. The malting process, basically, holds the force of attention in this entire methodology, since the process primarily aims to achieve the maximum production of enzymes such as β-glucanase and α-amylase, in addition to encompassing the maximum depolymerisation of β-glucan and starch. It is to be remembered that the mashing process basically aims to produce extensive quantities of fermentable sugars in liquor that can be easily filtered. Enzymes such as β-amylases are already present in barley, but the lion’s share of enzymes such as proteases and α-amylases are produced during the germination process.

Unveiling the enzyme landscape of brewing enzymes industry: Current and Future Trends

A research report by Global Market Insights, Inc., segments brewing enzymes market into xylanases, proteases, amylases, and beta-glucanases. Alpha-amylase and beta-amylase are particularly considered the most crucial enzymes contributing toward beer production, making amylases one of the most lucrative product segments of brewing enzymes industry. While both are vital indicators of the malt quality and are completely responsible for the release of fermentable sugars from starch during the mashing segment of wort production, it is to be remembered that they do have some strikingly varying characteristics. For instance, alpha-amylase is essentially an endo-acting enzyme responsible for hydrolyzing α-1,4 glucose linkages in the starch, while beta-amylase is an exo-acting enzyme that dissects maltose units from the starch.

Amylases ensure that the mashing process is consistent and uniform, without any irregularities. Furthermore, these enzymes ensure enhanced fermentation and filtration – which are the key factors contributing toward high-quality beer production. In the light of these properties, amylases-based brewing enzymes market was worth more than USD 75 million in 2016. It has been forecast that this segment will stand to gain substantial returns over the forthcoming years, possibly with reference to the fact that its usage leads to the rising production of fermentable glucose during beer production. Summating this driver with the fact that the demand for beer has been rising exponentially across numerous geographies, especially North America and Asia Pacific, will unquestionably carve a profitable growth map for brewing enzymes industry from amylases over 2017-2024.

Unlike amalyses, beta-glucanase is the vital enzyme that contributes toward the hydrolysis of beta-glucans during the malting & mashing processes. Higher levels of beta-glucans deliver high viscosity wort, which are appropriately hydrolyzed by beta-glucanases. Pertaining to the fact that this enzyme imparts excellent filtration, enhances wort separation, and lowers the viscosity levels in the wort, brewing enzymes market from beta-glucanases has been forecast to register a demand of more than 5000 kilotons by 2024, which accounts for approximately 30% of the overall brewing enzymes industry share by 2024. One of the most crucial drivers fueling the adoption of this product across breweries is that it helps enhance the beer quality with unmalted barley. This enzyme has been touted by experts to be a lucrative investment avenue for brewing enzyme market giants.

Brewing enzymes industry: Riding on the emblem of sustainability

Of late, brewing enzymes market has been experiencing a paradigm shift in accordance with the ongoing sustainability trends. It is noteworthy to mention that beer production and distribution had already entered the sustainability terrain when Harboe, the Danish brewery, had launched the use of a new enzyme for beer production in 2009, inscribing its name on the prestigious lineup of brewing enzymes market players that were some of the first ones to proliferate sustainable beer production. The new sustainable beer had apparently been christened as Clim8 Beer, which had come into being as a result of the two-year collaboration between Novozymes, the reputed brewing enzymes industry behemoth and Harboe.

The eco-friendly trend still continues to rule the charts, given that brewing enzymes market is highly controlled by changing consumer preferences and a rather stringent regulatory framework. On that note, it is prudent to mention that the beer magnate, Carlsberg, has recently launched a new sustainability program, in a bid to reduce the water usage by 50% and to eliminate carbon footprints by the year 2030. Tentatively titled ‘Together Towards Zero’, the project is categorized into four individually handled sub-projects, namely, Zero water waste, Zero accidents culture, Zero carbon footprint, and Zero irresponsible drinking. Zero carbon footprint is the goal that aims to source 100% of the electricity required at Carlsberg’s breweries by 2022 and also reduce the carbon emissions at these breweries by 30% by 2030. The brewing enzymes industry enterprise, through the Zero water waste program, aims to reduce the amount of water used by its breweries, by 50%.

Backed by a set of strict reforms, brewing enzymes market is certain to achieve an appreciable growth in the ensuing years. Judging by consumer reactions, it would seem that they are sufficiently content enjoying a glass of this beverage, basking in the valuable know-how of the fact that has indeed been sourced through a brewery that endorses sustainable solutions. Furthermore, the latest preferences of customers have been inching toward consuming beer that has been brewed with 100% unmalted barley, which will undeniably expand the scope for brewing enzymes market in the years to come.

As the experts claim, the future of brewing enzymes industry comprehends a widespread deployment of enzymes to be brewed with barley. In addition, alternative processes for beer and wort production that manifest high-grade productivity and endorse a robust reduction in the production of wastes and derivatives are expected to fabricate the future scope of brewing enzymes market, a lucrative business in the making, with an estimated target valuation of more than USD 390 million by 2024.

The conclusions drawn from several experimental studies have proved that ALA can inhibit the growth of atherosclerosis plaque as well as atherosclerosis and can lower oxidative stress occurring post heavy training activities. Today, ALA (Alpha Lipoic Acid) finds growing usage as a food supplement across the medical and nutritional management sectors. Rising popularity of ALA usage across myriad sectors will spur alpha lipoic acid market expansion over 2017-2024.

Despite providing benefits, ALA usage has also led to the demonstration of side effects such as skin allergies and gastrointestinal distress issues such as abdominal pain, nausea, dyspepsia, and vomiting in patients who were injected with the prescribed doses of alpha lipoic acid. Results derived from the trials conducted on the patients after administering ALA have depicted the occurrence of skin ulcers, pruritus, hypoglycemia, and bronchitis in patients. As per a recent study, patients injected with ALA suffered from insulin autoimmune syndrome, which is related to the application of the product as a dietary supplement. Side-effects witnessed in the patients after the product consumption can adversely impact the development of alpha lipoic acid industry. However, research is being conducted at an international level to find out alternatives that may counter the side-effects of ALA usage.

Speaking in terms of geographical trends, alpha lipoic acid industry is set to expand its footprints across major regions – North America, Latin America, and the Asia Pacific. As per estimates, Latin America alpha lipoic acid market is slated to grow at a rate of 6% over the coming timeline. The growth graph of this business space across this region may depict an upward trend subject to the substantial government funding to improve the healthcare facilities. Brazil is forecast to be a key regional growth driver. In North America though, alpha lipoic acid market share will be considerably augmented by the emerging pharmaceutical sector and the escalating need for dietary supplements & slimming products.

The thriving medical sector across the Asia Pacific is certain to be one of key factors driving the growth of alpha lipoic acid industry across this continent. With China and India striving to enhance their healthcare infrastructure, APAC alpha lipoic acid market will carve a profitable growth curve ahead, having held a valuation of USD 3.5 million in 2016.
