Protease enzymes refer to a group of enzymes whose catalytic function is to hydrolyze (breakdown) proteins. These enzymes represent one of the three largest groups of industrial enzymes; others being amylases and lipases. Protease enzymes mainly find their applications in detergents, food, pharmaceuticals, and bioremediation processes. The worldwide requirement of enzymes for individual applications varies considerably. Technical enzymes for detergent, paper & pulp, and textile manufacturing have the largest segment with approximately 52% market share with the largest share of the enzymes market held by alkaline proteases. The global protease enzymes market is growing at a CAGR of 5.3% from 2014 to 2019.

Western Europe and the U.S. have almost reached maturity with regard to the protease enzymes detergent market and the trend is shifting towards the consumption of protease enzymes in the pharmaceutical industry. On the other hand, Asia-Pacific and Rest of the World (ROW) regions, which are still developing and modernizing the laundry industry protease enzymes, are growing at a healthy CAGR in these countries. China shares the majority of market share of Asia-Pacific’s protease enzymes market.
