The cereals & grains segment, by crop type, is projected to dominate the agricultural enzymes market through 2022.

Cereals & grains are the staple diet in several developing countries, especially for the lower-income and rural population. Urbanization is one of the main factors affecting the demand for cereals & grains because of different lifestyles, calorie requirements, rise in income, and change in food requirements. Agricultural enzymes are used for most cereal crops to enhance the yield as they fertilize the soil and enhance plant growth. The global demand for agricultural enzymes is also expected to increase as cereals are grown in almost all countries.

Phosphatases segment dominated the agricultural enzymes market in 2016

The phosphatases segment accounted for the largest share in 2016. Phosphatases are a broad group of enzymes that are capable of catalyzing hydrolysis of esters and anhydrides of phosphoric acid and play a vital role in soil systems. It has the ability to solubilize soil mineral elements.

Fertility segment accounted for the largest market share in 2016

The fertility products segment is projected to grow at the highest rate during the forecast period followed by growth enhancing products. Soil fertility products containing soil enzymes such as proteases, dehydrogenases, ureases, sulfatases, and amylases are important in catalyzing several vital reactions necessary for the life processes of micro-organisms in soils and the stabilization of soil structure.
