The global bromelain and papain market is projected to reach USD 3.2 billion by 2028, growing at a CAGR of 4.7% during the forecast period 2018-2028. Bromelains are enzymes that have anti-inflammatory properties, which can be used in many medical applications such as wound healing and burns treatment; while papain has been traditionally used for digestion but has also been found to be effective against skin cancer cells. The food industry will continue to dominate the demand for these types of enzymes during the forecast period due to their application in the meat tenderization process and preservation through enzymatic activity.

Bromelain is a mixture of enzymes that are produced by the pineapple plant. Bromelain can be found in other plants and animals as well, but it's most highly concentrated in pineapples. When you eat or drink something with bromelain, it breaks down protein molecules into smaller pieces which makes them more digestible.

Papain is another type of enzyme that can be found in pineapples. Papain also breaks down proteins, but it does so even more effectively than bromelain. Plus, papain doesn't break down protein molecules into smaller pieces - instead, they're cut up entirely by the enzymes and then broken down on a cellular level. It is used in many different types of products, from medicine to beauty treatments. It's also found in some detergents and soaps that are designed for sensitive skin because it has anti-inflammatory properties.

On the basis of type, the global bromelain and papain market is segmented into bromelain and papain.


Bromelain is a plant enzyme that has long been used as an anti-inflammatory and to reduce swelling. It also helps in digestion by breaking down proteins, such as meat or cheese. Bromelain has first discovered in pineapple stems more than 100 years ago because it breaks down the tough outer rinds of pineapples when they are harvested from the ground.

Bromelain is found in a wide variety of plants, from pineapples to the seeds and stems of the pineapple plant. It also can be isolated as an extract or supplement taken orally. Bromelain appears to help with pain and inflammation associated with arthritis by breaking down joint swelling-causing compounds called proteoglycans that build up around joints throughout life until they resemble cartilage.

In recent years bromelain has been investigated for its potential ability to aid digestion following surgery, alleviate symptoms of ulcers caused by acid reflux disease (GERD), reduce blood sugar levels after eating food containing carbohydrates, break down proteins causing allergies such as pollen allergy, improve immune system function—especially when given intravenously during surgery, and increase the absorption of iron from food.


Papain is a native protein found in the papaya fruit. This enzyme can be used to make meat tender, and it has been shown effective at removing dead tissue from wounds, which speeds up healing time. It also inhibits bacterial growth when applied topically for scrapes or burns on the skin. Papain is most often taken as capsules mixed with water or juice because it may cause stomach irritation if taken orally without food that contains proteolytic enzymes. Papain may be helpful for:

* Natural weight loss - Papain is a proteolytic enzyme that can help break down protein. It may also make you feel full due to its fiber content, which means it could potentially aid in natural weight loss.

* Improving digestion and gut health - If your stomach feels too acidic or you have an upset stomach after eating, papain may be the key to improving your digestive system function by balancing out acid levels and reducing inflammation from certain foods. The enzymes found in papaya are often used as part of a treatment plan for inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) because they're capable of breaking down proteins present in damaged tissue within the intestinal tract.

* Treating acne - Papain has been shown to be a good treatment for acne, as it can help break down dead skin cells that clog pores.

* Reducing menstrual discomfort and pain associated with menstruation - For those who suffer from painful periods due to uterine cramps or endometriosis, papaya enzymes may offer relief by helping the uterus discharge its contents more quickly without having to resort to drugs like ibuprofen or acetaminophen.

On the basis of application, the global bromelain and papain market is segmented into the food industry, feed industry, medical application, cosmetic industry, and others.

Food Industry

Bromelain and papain are used in various processed foods as a meat tenderizer or for their flavor. Papain is most commonly found in the fruit of the papaya, where it acts to break down proteins so that animals can digest them more easily. Bromelain is found mainly, though not exclusively, in pineapples. Some examples of bromelin use in the food industry include meats such as beef; sauces like salsa verde; soups such as pistou; pasta dishes like strozzapreti Alla amatriciana; desserts like panna cotta and ice cream; beverages such as piña coladas.

In some cases, these enzymes have led to alterations in food preparation, such as increased use of hand-chopping in meat dishes. Bromelin is used to tenderize beef by breaking down tough fibers in the muscle tissue so they become more edible; it is typically sold commercially together with pepsin powder (which breaks down proteins) under brand names like "Beef EZ Tenderizer" or "Pineapple Tenderizer."

In soups and sauces, bromelin can increase the quality of food textures by breaking down tough fibers. For example, in a tomato-based soup, it may be used to break down pectin that binds together with meat proteins over time; this leads to an increased sense of tenderness in those meats. In pasta dishes like strozzapreti alla amatriciana, the use of bromelain helps create a more cohesive texture for pasta as well as release flavors from ingredients like fresh tomatoes or pork sausage.

Panna cotta is another dessert created using bromelain; its addition causes gelatin molecules to form smaller pieces which creates a smoother consistency than when only gelatine is used. The dessert's custard-like texture is created through the bromelain breaking down, or liquefying, starch molecules in sugar and eggs; this leaves a smooth product with no lumps.

In the food industry, papain can be used as an additive to bread doughs for making softer crusts.

Bromelains are also commonly found in some beer production processes to help break down proteins that form during fermentation of malted barley into smaller pieces which cause less bitterness.

Feed Industry

Bromelain and papain are used in the production of animal feed at a rate of less than 15% globally. The main use for these enzymes is to allow cows, chickens, and other animals to digest feed quickly by breaking down proteins into smaller peptides that can be absorbed more easily. These compounds may also have an antibacterial effect on bacteria such as Clostridium difficile. Bromelain has been shown to reduce inflammation caused by mastitis in cows while papain reduces inflammation from ulcers resulting from infection with Lawsonia intracellularis (Lawson ́s Disease).

Medical Application

Bromelain is used in the treatment of inflammation, swelling, and pain. It also has anti-inflammatory properties which may be beneficial for sufferers of arthritis or gout. The medical application of bromelain and papain is their use as a digestive enzyme supplement. Bromelain aids in the breakdown, or digestion, of foods into smaller molecules so that their nutrients can be absorbed by the body more efficiently. Papain helps break down proteins found in meat-based meals such as pork, beef, and chicken.

Cosmetic Industry

The most common application of bromelain and papain in the cosmetic industry is to be used as a beauty agent. The enzyme can create smoother skin texture, remove wrinkles without any side effects on the skin and enhance blood circulation when applied topically. Bromelain also has anti-inflammatory properties that help with healing wounds faster. It is also used in some anti-aging creams.

On the basis of region, the global bromelain and papain market is segmented into North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and Middle East & Africa. The North American region is expected to dominate the global bromelain amp papain market in 2017-2028 owing to the rapid industrialization of the countries such as the US and Canada.
