Fermentation chemicals serve as a processor or catalyst in a reaction and are used to speed up the reaction process. The growing demand from the alcohol industry, increasing expenditure on research in leading economies of the world, and the innovation in the pharmaceutical industries across various leading countries are expected to drive the market for fermentation chemicals, throughout the world. However, the market faces certain drawbacks with the availability of raw material and complexity in the manufacturing process leading to higher cost. These factors may act as a roadblock to the growth of the market.
The global fermentation chemicals market has been segmented by application into industrial, food & beverage, pharmaceutical & nutritional, plastics & fibers, and other applications. In 2015, the industrial application segment accounted for more than 45% of the global fermentation chemicals market, regarding value.
The global fermentation chemicals market, by product type, is broadly segmented into alcohols (which is further divided into ethanol and other alcohols), organic acids, enzymes, and others. The increasing government support, with the implementation of new rules and regulations to build a greener industry, and the growing demand for bio-based feedstock in industrial biotechnology are opening a gateway to opportunities in the global fermentation chemicals market.
The market has been geographically segmented into Asia-Pacific, North America, Europe, South America, and the Middle East & Africa. North America has the highest share in the market, accounting for around 35% of the global market share. The market for North America is highly driven by the pharmaceutical industry and its growing focus to turn itself into a green industry, especially in the United States. Asia-Pacific is the fastest-growing region for fermentation chemicals and portrays a huge potential for growth in the future, owing to the immense expansion in the food & beverage, pharmaceutical, and plastic markets.
