Global Fermenters Market to Reach US$ 2.8 Billion by 2032, Impelled by Increasing Product Demand from Pharmaceutical Sector

December 19, 2022 | Food & Beverages

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled "Fermenters Market Report by Process (Batch, Fed-Batch, Continuous), Mode of Operation (Semi-Automatic, Automatic), Material (Stainless-Steel, Glass), End User (Food and Beverages, Pharmaceutical, Personal Care, and Others), and Region 2024-2032," the global fermenters market size reached US$ 1.7 Billion in 2023. Fermenters, also called stirred-tank bioreactors, are small, sterilized process vessels or tanks that are used to cultivate heterotrophic microalgae. They comprise various sensors, probes, and controlled clean-in-place systems to maintain and monitor optimal levels of microbial growth. Additionally, they are also used to hold the wort, which is a mixture of water, malt, hops, and other ingredients mainly incorporated in numerous industrial procedures. They are widely available in various shapes and sizes and are sealed to allow the build-up of carbon dioxide pressure. They are widely utilized to manufacture several products, such as cellulose, protease, amylase, citric acid, glutamic acid, vinegar, ethanol, lipase, streptomycin and lactic acid. Besides this, they are also found in numerous applications, such as biological wastewater treatment, industrial solvents and pulp and paper production.

Global Fermenters Market Trends:

Significant growth in the pharmaceutical industry majorly drives the global market. Due to their large production capability and high tolerance toward unusual growth conditions, such as acidic or high temperatures, fermenters are preferred in the research and development (R&D) of pharmaceutical drugs. Therefore, they are extensively deployed in the pharmaceutical industry to produce a variety of enzymes and chemical compounds, which is positively influencing the market. Coupled with this, the increasing prevalence of infectious and chronic diseases, such as cancer and coronavirus disease (COVID-19), is escalating the demand for biological drugs, further impacting the demand for fermenters across the globe. Apart from this, the rising product applications in the food and beverage industry to alter and preserve the texture of dairy items, vegetables, grains, and soy products are acting as another growth-inducing factor. In addition, the growing awareness among individuals regarding the health benefits of fermented food products and the augmenting need for improved digestion, immune system and intestinal tract are providing a thrust to the market. Moreover, the rising incorporation of fermenters with advanced technologies to facilitate data acquisition and storage, filtering, measurement, calculations, process monitoring, error detection, and unit conversion is creating a positive market outlook. On account of the aforementioned factors, the market size is anticipated to reach a value of US$ 2.8 Billion by 2032, exhibiting a CAGR of 5.8% during 2024-2032.
