Alcohol and starch/sugar enzyme facilitate the process of hydrolysis where a carbohydrate is broken into its component sugar molecule. Alcohol and starch/sugar enzymes also play a vital role in the inter conversion between alcohols and aldehydes. These enzymes are responsible to speed up all biological processes. Alcohol and starch/sugar enzymes find their applications in food and beverages, cleaning agents, bio-fuel production, animal feed, pharmaceuticals, biotechnology, and research and biotechnology. The rise in population combined with an increase in the disposable income is creating a tremendous demand for consumer products such as food and beverages, cleaning agents, as well as bio-fuels. All these factors will drive the demand for alcohol and starch/sugar enzymes in the future.

Carbohydrases play a substantial role in starch/sugar conversion into alcohol. The alcohol industry consumes carbohydrases to optimize i processing and increase yield. The alcohol and starch/sugar enzyme industry witnessed positive growth due to the industrial and specialty utilization of alcohol enzymes. Carbohydrases are market drivers for the alcohol enzymes industry with highest share of the global alcohol enzymes market. The positive growth of the alcohol and brewing industry has catapulted the market for carbohydrases to new heights.

Bio-fuel and pharmaceuticals are one of the major applications of alcohol and starch/sugar enzymes, due to their flexible application and stringent government rule with regards to the utilization of synthetic food ingredients. Animal feed is another vital application of alcohol and starch/sugar enzymes since a few enzymes accelerate protein absorption in animals, which is of vital importance to maintain animal health.

North America is one of the largest segments for the use of starch/sugar enzymes. The demand for starch/sugar enzymes has increased in recent years, due to the introduction of new drugs used in enzyme replacement therapy. The increasing use of biofuels is one of the major drivers for the starch/sugar enzyme market. The U.S. wine market is the world's second largest market, which will increase the demand of alcohol enzymes to process wine. U.S. is the most important contributor for the growth of starch/sugar enzymes in North America.

This report also describes the key players in alcohol and starch/sugar enzymes business across the globe. The regions covered include North America (U.S., Canada, and Mexico), Europe (U.K., Germany, France, Italy, and Spain), Asia-Pacific, and Rest of the World (South Africa and Brazil).
