Measuring the COVID-19 Impact: Sales of Microbial Lipase on a Downtrend, with Reduced Consumer Footfalls at Retail and Convenience Stores – Future Market Insights

Microbial lipase producers are anticipated to leverage the demand arising from the bakery and confectionery industry.

DUBAI, UAE / ACCESSWIRE / May 27, 2020 / Nationwide lockdowns and mass closure of the retail sector induced by global coronavirus outbreak are heavily impacting production scenarios and supply chain operations across the food processing sector. Diminishing consumer footfalls at stores and mounting expenditure on groceries are influencing the microbial lipase market. The supply side of global microbial lipase market is witnessing major disruptions through the pandemic, impacting the entire production and distribution scenarios. While this highlights market growth challenges created by the pandemic, the market has been projected to witness a promising growth outlook in long term. A new Future Market Insights (FMI) report forecasts a US$ 915.9 Bn value pool for microbial lipase market, towards the end of projection period, 2019 – 2029.

“Lack of standardization in lipase patent laws and regulatory structures will continue to hinder growth in demand for microbial lipase. However, post the lockdown, the recovery in sales will be covered by existing inventories,” says the FMI analyst.

Impact of COVID-19 on Microbial Lipase Market

Rapid spread of the COVID-19 pandemic has brought in financial uncertainty to markets in the food processing sector. Consumers have changed preferences by reducing visits to food and convenience stores, but are also spending more per visit. The rising demand for bakery and confectionary items is also expected to stay strong, creating demand for microbial lipase. However, disruptions in terms of raw material supplies and shortages in workforce hamper overall market prospects. Extending lockdowns enforced by governments are affecting production, distribution, and supplies. The demand for microbial lipase is likely to start recovering after the lockdowns are lifted. Current inventories are expected to play an essential role in meeting the resurgence of demand.
