“The fermenters market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 8.4%.”
The fermenters market is estimated at USD 1.13 billion in 2018 and is projected to grow at a CAGR of 8.4%, to reach USD 1.69 billion by 2023. The market is driven by factors such as increased consumption of fermented beverages in developed economies, change in consumer perception of fermentation with regard to health claims, and growth in awareness about food preservation. However, the increasing cost of fermenters is the major restricting factor for the global fermenters market.
“The stainless steel segment is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period.”
Based on the material used for the fermenter’s build, the stainless steel segment is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. Commercial fermentation equipment manufacturers are producing stainless steel fermenters that allow the microbial culture to be stored during the brewing process in the same vessel. Furthermore, commercial stainless steel conical fermenters have the advantage of being reused, have increased durability, and are sanitized easily. In developed economies such as Europe and North America, stainless steel fermenters are widely preferred to meet economies of scale.
“By process, the fed-batch segment is estimated to grow at the highest CAGR in the global fermenters market between 2018 and 2023.”
Based on the process, the fermenters market has been segmented into batch, fed-batch, and continuous. The fed-batch segment is estimated to dominate the fermenters market in 2018. Fed-batch fermenters are widely used for the production of microbial cultures used in the preparation of amylase and vinegar. They are also used in mammalian cell culture systems wherein the product yield is at a higher amount with a low level of substrate concentration, which is used in the production of recombinant proteins, antibiotic drugs, and baker’s yeast.
