Dublin, Jan. 03, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "World Markets for Fermentation Ingredients" report has been added to's offering.

The report describes each individual product, reviews industry developments, estimates current volumes produced and consumed, and finally considers price trends and industry structure.

The market size and estimations are provided in terms of value (USD Millions), considering 2021 as a base year, and a market forecast will be provided from 2022 to 2027. Regional market size with respect to the application will be provided. COVID-19 impact will be considered during the market estimation.


A biological process called fermentation transforms sugar into gases, alcohol, or acid. It takes place in bacteria, yeast, and oxygen-starved muscle cells and is comparable to lactic acid fermentation.

Microorganisms are allowed to grow on a growth medium throughout the fermentation process in order to generate the desired chemical result. The most prevalent kind of fermentation is anaerobic. Ingredients that have undergone fermentation are utilized in both food and non-food items to start the process of producing the desired chemical.

Food can be changed in form or flavor through the process of fermentation. Changing the food's consistency and acceptability enhances the food's flavor, nutrients, and digestibility.

As in previous years, Ajinomoto remains the undisputed industry leader, but Novozymes, DSM, Danisco, CJ (CJ CheilJedang), and Fufeng are also major players, largely due to their activity in the amino acid and/or industrial enzyme segments.

Lysine and monosodium glutamate (MSG) have always been popular fermentation-derived amino acids, but lysine and MSG consumption are on the rise. MSG was historically an Asian product, but lysine is also being developed in Asian countries (more so than in Europe or North America) due to its relevance for the compound feed industry, which is growing faster in the Asia-Pacific region than in any other part of the world.

Threonine development, which is following in the footsteps of lysine development, has made progress in becoming respected as a standard feed ingredient. The market for tryptophan, although growing, is still small compared to other ingredients.

Industrial enzymes have seen the strongest growth in technical applications such as the fermentation of bioethanol, but growth has continued to be significant in other segments also. The main markets are located in Europe and North America. Growth markets exist in the Asia-Pacific and are increasing at a faster rate.

The report includes an analysis of major players across each regional fermentation ingredients market. The report explains the major drivers and regional dynamics of the global fermentation ingredients market and current trends within the industry. The report concludes with a review of the most important companies active in the fermentation process arena.
