Global Fermentation Chemicals Market to Reach US$ 100 Billion by 2027, Catalyzed by Demand for Bio-Based Fuels

Published on May 22, 2020

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Fermentation Chemicals Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2022-2027,” the global fermentation chemicals market reached a value of US$ 70 Billion in 2021. Fermentation refers to the aerobic breakdown of organic molecules. On the industrial level, fermentation chemicals are utilized for increasing the pace of chemical reactions, which, in turn, helps in lowering energy consumption, manufacturing costs and fermentation time. These chemicals are generally produced using vegetable-based feedstocks, such as sugar, corn and starch. In recent years, advancements in technology have enabled the large-scale production of these chemicals, which, in turn, has boosted their utilization across the globe.

We are regularly tracking the direct effect of COVID-19 on the market, along with the indirect influence of associated industries. These observations will be integrated into the report.

Global Fermentation Chemicals Market Trends:

Fermentation chemicals are essential for the production of alcoholic beverages, owing to which an increase in their demand has led to the significant growth of the global fermentation chemicals market. Besides this, the usage of these chemicals in other industries, ranging from food and beverages to cosmetics and pharmaceuticals, is also contributing to the market growth. In the pharmaceutical industry, these chemicals are used to develop novel medicines using bacterial cultivation. Whereas, in the food and beverage sector, they are used as preservatives in the preparation of baked goods and other food products. The usage of fermentation chemicals, such as carboxylic acid and amino acids, has also increased in cosmetic products. Furthermore, with growing concerns regarding carbon emissions caused by using petrochemical-based products, organizations are shifting toward plant-based fuels, such as bioethanol, which are synthesized using fermentation chemicals. On account of these factors, the market value is projected to reach US$ 100 Billion by 2027, expanding at a CAGR of 6.4% during 2022-2027.
