With the increase of beer consumption across the world, positive lifestyle changes and growing disposable income in the developing countries, the demand of beer has gone up rapidly in recent years. In order to match the jump in demand the producers of beers has focused on brewing enzymes to increase capacity, reduce the time of production , aging of final products and allowed use of raw material alternative to malt i.e. Barley+enzymes.This change in process also results in production of same quality of beer in less time, and improves utilization of vessel, reduce energy consumption and low maturation duration with high beer quality.

There are different type of enzymes which come in to use at different brewing process of producing beer and also used to modify the taste and content of beer, producing light beers, containing less calories. The market for brewing enzymes is growing but not every player in the beer industry uses brewing enzymes and really few accept the use of brewing enzymes in the production process.

Brewing enzymes market is majorly segmented by the enzyme type, by process, by function and region wise. On the basis of enzyme type brewing enzymes used during brewing process of beer segmented as amylases (carbohydrate enzymes), proteases (protein enzymes), peptidases, and β-glucanases and xylanases (cellulose enzymes). Other important brewing enzymes are pullulanases amyloglucosidases and α-acetolactate-decarboxylases. Each of these enzymes are important for brewing and every enzyme have different function resulting in fast brewing of beer. The α-amylases is one of the most versatile enzymes most widely used enzyme because it has abundance of starch, and find it’s applicability if applications from the conversion of starch to sugar syrups in brewing industry.

Brewing enzymes can be also segmented on the basis of function like increasing free amino nitrogen production, improve filtration, and to reduce the presence of polysaccharides like glucans which are viscous in nature. It also increases fermentable glucose production during the light beer production. Basically, brewing enzymes results in enhanced chill proofing, cold haze and definitively faster maturation.

Brewing enzymes market can also be segmented on the basis of geography but the segmentation is done one the basis of parent market trends i.e. brewing market. China is one of the major player in Asia-Pacific market and rules the market with respect to demand of brewing enzymes. North American region has high demand of brewing enzymes due to huge production of beer in U.S, followed closely by Europe, pertaining the demand of brewing enzymes, due to high production of beer in Germany, U.K, Poland and Spain. The growth will be moderate to slow due to maturity in developed regions Western Europe and North America causing rapid growth in the Asia/Pacific and other developing regions.

Brewing enzymes market is driven by growth in beer and industrial enzyme market. Brewing industry have grown quickly in recent years and shows promising growth in coming years from the developing regions, impacting the growth of brewing enzymes markets positively. Also with increasing demand of light beer, due to rise in health consciousness and increasing buying power of the developing nation, the developing nations will steer the growth of brewing enzymes market. Multinational players continue to make huge investments to grow their market coverage and collaborating with domestic operators, to tap markets in different regions, will also result in demand of brewing enzymes. Hence, it is possible to alter the taste and color of beer by adding enzymes during the brewing process, the producers are not shying away with experimenting and launching new flavors in the market.
