Digestive Enzymes Market Size up to 2030 – Quantitative Research by QYResearch Medical

The global digestive enzymes market size was USD 635.31 million in 2021 and is expected to register a steady revenue CAGR of 10.3% during the forecast period. Market revenue growth is primarily driven by factors such as growing geriatric population, increasing incidences of gastrointestinal diseases including irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), inflammatory bowel disease, constipation, and gastroesophageal reflux disease, and rising consumer awareness about the gut health benefits of digestive enzymes.

Changing lifestyles and eating habits, growing demand for digestive enzyme supplements, especially among health & fitness-oriented individuals, and increasing expenditure on healthcare are other key factors prompting the growth of this market.

Digestive enzymes are proteins that regulate and facilitate the chemical reactions taking place during digestion of food. These enzymes help to break down the complex molecules of food such as carbohydrates, proteins, and fats into smaller substances and aid in their complete absorption in the body. Lipase, protease, maltase, lactase, peptidase, amylase, sucrose, and nuclease are common digestive enzymes present in the digestive tract of human beings and animals. Digestive enzymes are mostly secreted by salivary glands, gastric glands in the gut, pancreatic glands, liver, and small intestine. Deficiency of digestive enzymes in the body could lead to various health conditions such as lactose intolerance and exocrine pancreatic insufficiency, and therefore, individuals with such deficiencies are recommended to take digestive enzyme supplements. For instance, some common over-the-counter pancreatic enzyme supplements include Zenpep, Creon, Ultresa, Pancreaze, Pertzye, and Viokace. Digestive enzymes are naturally present in a variety of foods including pineapples, mangoes, papayas, bananas, avocados, honey, kefir, kimchi, sauerkraut, miso, ginger, and kiwifruit. Inclusion of such foods in our everyday diet can help improve digestion and gut health.
