Glucoamylase is also known as amyloglucosidase. The global glucoamylase market is estimated to gather momentum from growing health consciousness amongst common people. The importance of glucoamylase can be easily gauged from the fact that it assists in the absorption of nutrients from easily available plant food. After absorption, it helps to produce energy from those nutrients that a body needs. Glucoamylase successfully breaks down starch that is readily available in many of the vegetables that we eat almost every day, namely potato, wheat, rice, and corn.

Large amount of consumption of starches every day present copious growth opportunities for the global glucoamylase market. Glucoamylase come with several health benefits, they are mentioned below:

  • Alleviates Irritable Bowel Syndrome – The ill effects of irritable bowel syndrome is relieved following use of glucoamylase in combination with other enzymes, People who has regular intake of glucoamylase reported substantial depletion of flatulence and bloating.  
  • Assists in gastrointestinal issues and digestive upset - Many people suffering from digestive and gastrointestinal problems take enzyme supplements on a regular basis. People who take these enzyme supplements feel that there has been a boost to their digestive system.
  • Provides support to the immune system - Studies reveal that glucoamylase together with other enzymes boost the immune systems of living beings. In case of presence of antibodies, antigens, and autoimmune diseases, tossues can get damaged over time, if not treated properly. Diseases like lupus, certain types of kidney diseases, and rheumatoid arthritis. Research makes suggestions that intake of  glucoamylase can boost immune system of these patients to some extent.

In addition to the above-mentioned benefits of the enzyme, global glucoamylase market is likely to benefit from its ability to assist in reducing the burden of digestive organs as well.         

Glucoamylase decomposes starch into glucose by shredding glucose units commencing the non-reduced end of polysaccharide chain. They are derived from submerged fermentation of a specially selected producer strain of Asp.niger. To sustain an optimum enzyme activity, glucoamylase should be stored in dry and cool place in a strongly closed container. The global glucoamylase market is expected to grow at a single digit CAGR during the forecast period.

Glucoamylase is a significant industrial enzyme and is extensively used in brewing, starch saccharification and across distilling industry. Glucoamylase is derived from a wide variety of sources which includes plants, animals, and microorganisms. Main stream production of glucoamylase is prepared using liquid fermentation process. Further, the method of solid state fermentation is been employed for the production.  The technique is gaining renewed interest from researchers in the near time.

Global Glucoamylase Market: Drivers and Restraints

The major driver driving the global glucoamylase market is the health benefits of glucoamylase. Glucoamylase can break down the starches into glucose which are absorbable and usable. Some of the health benefits of glucoamylase includes aid in irritable bowel syndrome, aid for digestive upset & gastrointestinal issues, fast aiding of the digestive organs and reduction of food allergies. Also, studies have proved that glucoamylase in combination with other enzymes resuts in less autoimmunity responses and can influence the immune system in a beneficial way.
