Manufacturers Focusing on Product Variants as Key Marketing Strategy

Pepsin manufacturers are predominantly focused on providing a comprehensive selection of fermented, plant-derived and animal-based enzymes in the industry. Still, there has been no significant inorganic strategy that has been observed in the last half decade in the pepsin market landscape.
