Market Overview

The global yeast ingredients market is growing at a CAGR of 7.8% during the forecast period (2020-2025). 

  • The market is driven by the increased demand for processed food & beverages due to the rising effect of busy lifestyles in developing countries. In addition, its benefits in usage in other sectors have substantially boosted the demand for yeast ingredients. For pet food applications, yeast ingredients are used for making in-situ flavors, savory aroma, and enhance the taste, which results in increased palatability. Also, in developing countries, the yeast ingredients market is also evolving in response to the rapidly increasing demand for livestock products.
  • On the segmentation font by type, the yeast extract segment dominated the market, holding the largest share owing to the increase in consumer preference for savory food products and flavors. On the segmentation font by application, the yeast ingredients market is driven by the food and beverage segment, followed by the pharmaceutical sector.
  • However, one of the major factors restraining the global market is the shortage of basic raw material, with the demand coming from various sectors, due to molasses trading restrictions in the countries of Europe. Another reason for this shortage is the large threat for bio-fuel competition, as the prices of bio-fuels are high.
