Global Fermented Foods Market to Grow at 5.6% During 2022-2027, Impelled by Increasing Health Consciousness

September 08, 2022

The latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Fermented Food Market: Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity, and Forecast 2022-2027,” finds that the global fermented foods market size is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 5.6% during the forecast period (2022-2027). Fermented foods are made through an anaerobic process that involves fermentation by microorganisms to break starch and sugar into lactic, citric, or acetic acids. Some commonly consumed fermented foods include sausages, soy sauce, pickles, kimchi, yogurt, cheeses, tempeh, natto, kombucha, miso, sauerkraut, and balsamic vinegar. The fermentation process provides new flavors and textures to foods while preventing them from spoiling. Moreover, the addition of heat and salt during canning can extend the shelf life of fermented foods. It helps to improve the digestive system by maintaining a proper balance of bacteria in the gut. It also offers various benefits, such as reducing the risk of cardiovascular ailments, minimizing inflammatory bowel disorders, boosting the immune system, and maintaining cognitive health.

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 Fermented Food Market Trends:

The market is primarily driven by the increasing health consciousness among individuals. This can be attributed to the changing dietary patterns based on the high content of omega-3 fatty acids, essential enzymes, and probiotics. In addition, the growing consumer inclination toward organic, natural, and clean-labeled food products, fermented foods, and beverages that enhance the digestive system by improving the bowel metabolism and immune systems is further escalating the product demand. Moreover, the growing popularity of vegan food and fermented vegan meat products such as tempeh, having similar nutritional value compared to meat-based alternatives, represents another major growth-inducing factor. Apart from this, the increasing consumption of various functional beverages, such as kombucha tea and probiotic fermented milk, is further propelling the market growth. Besides this, various regulatory bodies are introducing safety standards for offering appropriate quality control and maintaining the functionality of fermented foods. Consequently, key players are adopting advanced fermentation technology to produce innovative product variants with enriched flavor and prolonged shelf life, which is also creating a positive market outlook across the globe.
