Enzymes are protein macromolecules that act as biocatalyst and facilitates the rate of a reaction without getting altered in the chemical reaction. Numerous chemical reactions take place in all living organisms, most of which are regulated by enzymes. Depletion in the capacity of the body’s enzymes often leads to pain, indigestion, inflammation, immune deficiency, and many others. Use of traditional medical products only provides temporary relief whereas enzymes act on the underlying cause of health problems by binding to the target site and converting multiple target molecules into desired products. Specialty enzymes have valuable medicinal and industrial application.

Specialty enzymes have a variety of uses in the pharmaceuticals industry, biofuel, biotechnology, food supplements, and many others. Increase in the prevalence of chronic digestive disorders, growing investments in the research and development activities towards the development of new digestive aids, and growing acquisitions among players are likely to boost the specialty enzymes market during the forecast period.
