Galactosidase market size, share & industry analysis, By Type (Alpha Galactosidase, Beta Galactosidase), By Application (Food, Pharmaceutical, Feed, Others) and regional forecast 2023-2030

Region : Global | Report ID: FBI103686 | Status : Ongoing



The galactosidase is an enzyme and is produced from many varieties of sources such as plants, animals, and microorganisms. It can be used either in the immobilized or soluble forms. The galactosidase comprises of alpha-galactosidase and beta-galactosidase. The alpha-galactosidase is used for catalyzing the hydrolysis of substrates that has α-galactosidic residues which include glycoproteins and glycosphingolipids. Whereas, the beta-galactosidase hydrolyses the lactose into glucose and galactose. Furthermore, galactosidase is used for the removal of lactose, biosynthesis of transgalactosylated products, and in the manufacturing of prebiotics. It finds its application in the food, pharmaceutical, and feed applications. 

The rising demand for alpha-galactosidase and beta-galactosidase will lead to a surge in the galactosidase market growth during the forecast timeline. The alpha-galactosidase is an enzyme that catalyzes various catabolic processes such as glycolipids, polysaccharides, and cleaving glycoproteins. It is also utilized in capsules and tablets. Whereas, the beta-galactosidase is mainly used in the food industry. By breaking down lactose in glucose, it is used in the production of energy and source of carbon which is further used in production of lactose free dairy products such as milk and cheese. Hence, rising demand for these end products will fuel the galactosidase market growth. 

However, the high demand for galactosidase leads to supply-demand imbalance causing low availability. This further reduces the consumption of the product in many applications. Hence, this is anticipated to hamper the market growth.
