The agricultural enzymes market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 11.2% to reach USD 474.7 million by 2022 in terms of value. The agricultural enzymes market is growing rapidly owing to factors such as cost savings and increasing demand for biofertilizers. The trend towards sustainable industrial agriculture has created opportunities for agricultural enzyme manufacturers to generate significant revenues by developing enhanced and high-quality products for customers.
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.
