The African agricultural enzymes industry is expected to grow at a CAGR of 6.2% during 2015-2020. Agricultural enzymes are a composite of intracellular and extracellular enzymatic components produced by microbial organisms like bacteria and fungi. Also these enzymes can be derived from animal and plant sources like plant roots, residues and digestive tracts of animals.

Agricultural Enzyme is the catalyst that prompts chemical reactions that release nutrients that might otherwise remain chemically bound, which detoxify the soil. Agricultural enzymes act extensively in agriculture based biological processing like- processing of crop and crop residues, silage fermentation and bio processing of fibers. Agricultural enzymes are also popularly used in animal feed and feed supplement products.

The growing popularity of organic agriculture, increasing focus on agriculture biotechnology and awareness on environment friendly agriculture practices are driving the regional agricultural enzymes market. Most of the agricultural enzymes application demand comes from crop processing and animal feed additives manufacturing industries. The cost effective production and application of enzymes also form a major reason for growth in the price sensitive markets. High R&D costs and unclear regulations may create obstacles for the market growth in the region.

The agricultural enzymes market is segmented on the basis of strain types, application and crop types. On the basis of product types, the market is segmented into Carbohydrases, Proteases, Lipases, Polymerases & Nucleases; carbohydrases is the most popular with varied applications followed by proteases and lipases. Application these products is explained as per crop protection, fertility and growth enhancing products. Enzyme based pesticides and fertilizers help farmers to enjoy healthier crops and higher yields; direct application of agriculture enzymes into the field acts as agriculture input enhancers. Crop type application involves cereals and grains, and fruits and vegetables and oilseeds and pulses.

South Africa is expected to see fastest growth in terms of regional demand. Though the market size is small, the markets in countries like Egypt would grow positively. The increasing farmers’ awareness regarding issues related to agrochemicals and environmental safety will lead the market growth in those countries.

Many North America players are actively involved in the agricultural enzymes market of South America as a strategic move. Some of the major players active in the regional market are- Bioworks Inc., Adisseo France, Novozymes A/S, Syngenta AG and Advanced Enzyme Technologies etc. Increasing investment over product innovation and development has been the major long term strategy for the players in the recent past.
