Specialty malt is a dried germinated cereal grain with unique texture, taste, color and effect. It is used for brewing beer and whiskey and is available in flavored and colored variants, such as crystal, caramel, chocolate, coffee roasted and dark malt, in liquid and dry forms. These malts are prepared using barley, wheat, rye, rice and corn. In comparison to the traditionally used base malts, specialty malts do not need to be mashed and are steeped in hot water for the desired flavor, aroma and coloring. They are also very light in color and contain high amounts of sugar. They are usually used individually or combined with other specialty malts to brew the desired malt profile.
Significant growth in the food and beverage industry is one of the key factors creating a positive outlook for the market. Moreover, the increasing consumer preference for craft beer and premium alcohols is providing a thrust to the market growth. Quick serving restaurants (QSRs), cafés and hotels are offering unique and innovative domestically brewed beers and whiskeys to their customers, which is positively impacting the demand for specialty malt. In line with this, the widespread product adoption in the manufacturing of various baked products is also contributing to the growth of the market. Specialty malts are used in flavored breads, biscuits, cookies and malt-infused desserts for enhanced flavor and color. Additionally, various product innovations, such as the launch of malt-based ready-to-drink (RTD) beverages and premixes, are favoring the market growth. Other factors, including rising expenditure capacities of the consumers, along with the rising preference for natural and organic malt ingredients, are anticipated to drive the market toward growth.
