Global Fermented Ingredients Market to Reach US$ 39.3 Billion by 2027, Propelled by Escalating Demand from the Food and Beverage Industry

Published on Jun 17, 2022

The latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Fermented Ingredients Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity, and Forecast 2022-2027,” finds that the global fermented ingredients market size reached US$ 23.1 Billion in 2021. Fermented ingredients are employed as food additives to trigger fermentation in various food and non-food products. Some commonly used fermented ingredients include industrial enzymes, biogas, vitamins, xanthan, amino acids, and antibiotics. They are acidic in nature and comprise healthy bacteria and yeast that break down carbohydrates, starch, and sugars in foods, thereby improving digestive health. They can extend the shelf life and alter the texture, flavor, and state of the food. They are widely used to facilitate microbial growth and enzymatic conversion to produce cultured milk, yogurt, cider, wine, beer, kombucha, tempeh, miso, kimchi, and fermented meats. As a result, fermented ingredients find extensive applications across various industries, including food and beverage, biofuel, textile, paper, cosmetics and personal care, and pharmaceuticals.

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 Ingredients Market Trends:

The escalating demand for fermented ingredients from the food and beverage industry represents the primary factor driving the market growth. For instance, there has been widespread adoption of amino acid-based fermented ingredients to preserve foods and prepare premium-quality fermented alcoholic beverages. Besides this, the growing consumer awareness regarding the benefits associated with the consumption of fermented ingredients has escalated the product demand. In line with this, the surging incidences of digestive ailments and the shifting consumer inclination toward high protein diets have augmented the product demand. Furthermore, the increasing applications of fermented ingredients in the pharmaceutical sector for breaking down compounds under aerobic or anaerobic conditions and improving the bioavailability of medicinal compounds are positively influencing the market growth. Besides this, the growing product usage in cosmetic and personal care products to elevate the level of antioxidants, slow down the aging process, and enhance overall skin health has accelerated the adoption of fermented ingredients. Other factors, including the rising consumption of beer, increasing product adoption in animal feed, emerging biofuel applications, and ongoing research and development (R&D) activities, are also creating a favorable market outlook. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market value to reach US$ 39.3 Billion by 2027, growing at a CAGR of 9.3% during the forecast period (2022-2027).
