According to study, “Global Invertase Size study, by Industry (Food & Beverage, Pharmaceuticals, Personal Care, Others), Source (Plant, Microorganism) and Regional Forecasts 2018-2025” some of the major companies that are currently working in the global invertase market are Sigma-Aldrich Co. LLC, Koninklijke DSM N.V., Meteoric Exim Private Ltd., SternEnzym GmbH & Co. KG, MP Biomedicals LLC, Parchem Fine & Speciality Chemicals, Kerry Inc., Megazyme Inc., BIO-CAT.
Invertase is an enzyme that assembles hydrolysis of sucrose into fructose & glucose. Many microorganisms produce invertase & use sucrose as a main nutrient. It is also known from the different names such as saccharase, beta-h-fructosidase, glucosucrase, beta-fructosidase, invertin, maxinvert L 1000, sucrase, fructosylinvertase, acid invertase and alkaline invertase. Additionally, the systematic name is beta-fructofuranosidase. It is widely used as food additive as a carbohydrate digesting enzyme which divides sucrose into fructose and glucose. When combined with other carbohydrates further increase the overall digestion of sugar, starch, and other carbohydrates. It also plays as an essential role in the break the bond between glucose and fructose making it a vital role of the digestion from multifarious sugars into blood sugar. It gives for optimum pH 4.5 & stability at 50 °C with combating cancer by providing antioxidant support. It also helps in decreasing stomach toxicity. It is used in for the profitable banking due to capability benefit in maintaining the moisture for longer time period.
Invertase demonstrated marked stability towards temperature, denaturants and pH changes. Temperature of result mixture determines rate of inversion with the active enzyme. Some of the other side effects associated with use of invertase are nausea, headache and diarrhea. In addition, it may lead to diabetes as usage of these enzymes should be avoided for diabetic patients. Therefore, it may hinder the growth of market for regions having high diabetic population.
Based on source, the global invertase market is segmented into microorganisms and plants. Microorganism includes microorganisms like S._cerevisiae, A. niger and Candida utilis. Plants include Pea (Pisum sativum), Japanese Pearfruit (Pyrus pyrifolia) and Oat (Avena sativa). Based on the materials & methods, the market is segmented into processing of the substrates, enzyme extraction, microorganisms & culture medium, solid state fermentation, enzyme assay and purification & characterization of invertase. Based on the industry, market is categorized into pharmaceuticals, food & beverage, personal care and others.
The market of global invertase is primarily driven by increase in applicability for pharmaceutical industry and rising demand for innovative products among customers related to food & beverages sector. Apart from benefits, some of the restraining factors include high operational cost with less access to the natural enzyme.
Globally, the North American region holds largest market in terms value due to large number of consumers are interested in the natural products & invertase presented as a natural ingredient. Asia-Pacific & Europe regions are expected to display high growth rate owing to the opportunistic platform offered for the research & development (R& D).It is also predicted that the global invertase market to be developed fast due to growing demand for modern products allied to food & beverage sectors.
