Fermentation chemicals are used as the most important raw material in alcohol industry. Ethanol, the major chemical required for the production of alcohol and alcoholic beverages is produced by fermentations. Therefore, rising demand for alcoholic beverages results in the growth of global fermentation chemical market. Moreover, other industries such as pharmaceutical, cosmetic, food and beverages industry need fermentation chemicals to run their production process. Hence, the growth of these industries in various geographical regions also drives the fermentation chemicals industry. High cost involved in the fermentation of lactic acid prevents its uses in the dairy industry. In addition, the fluctuation of production process in the fermentation of ethanol, bacteria, lactic acid also restraints the market growth. The production of eco friendly fermentation chemicals would create its application in the sectors such as biomass conversion.

Hansen A/S, etc. INVISTA and LanzaTech signed a research and development agreement aimed at the development of gas-fermentation process technology for the production of industrial chemicals from carbon dioxide and hydrogen gas feedstock.
HIGH LEVEL ANALYSIS
The market is growing swiftly in the global chemical market. The driving and restraining factors for this market are strategically dealt in this analysis and more emphasis is given towards its growth opportunities. The global market is analyzed using Porter’s five-force model, which assists the stakeholders to understand the bargaining power of buyers & suppliers, threat of new entrants and competitive rivalry. As the product is mostly used by industrial applications, the customer/buyer is highly educated and price sensitive. Therefore, the supplier has lower bargaining power, while the buyer enjoys high bargaining power. Due to the high cost involved in some of the important chemical fermentation, the threat of new entrant would be low.
