Various food manufacturers are developing products that contain extracts rather than artificial flavors such as monosodium glutamate (MSG). This is estimated to boost the demand in the coming years. As these ingredients are natural, they are widely used across the food industry. Moreover, surging demand for food products with high nutritional value is expected to augment its use in various areas of the food and beverages industry.

Rising awareness regarding calorie reduction and healthier diets among consumers in major markets such as India, the U.S., and China is likely to promote the consumption of functional foods over the coming years, thereby escalating the growth of the market. Increasing awareness regarding the importance of appropriate protein intake is poised to provide an upthrust to the market over the forecast period.

Asia Pacific is projected to be at the forefront of the market throughout the forecast period owing to increasing demand from different application segments in the region.

Product Insights

The yeast extracts segment accounted for the largest revenue share of 37.7% in 2022 and is expected to expand at a CAGR of 9.2% during the forecast period. Yeast extract refers to beneficial components extracted by autolysis. It contains nucleotides, amino acids, vitamins, minerals, and others. It is used as a crucial ingredient in the food & beverage industry.

Key properties favoring the demand for extracts in the industry include high nutritional value, sodium content reaction, and taste and flavor enhancer. It is widely used in soups, savory mixes, dairy products, processed foods, and others.

Yeast autolysates are used to enhance the color, flavor, and nutritional value of food products. They are used in poultry and pork applications, in addition to their application as seasoning blend ingredients and flavor carriers for processed meat products. Autolysate products are rich in vitamins, proteins, micronutrients, and fiber, and thus, are added to food products. In addition, they are used as a pet food ingredient and as a nutrient for micro-organisms in fermentation processes.

Application Insights

The food segment held the largest revenue share of 60.4% in 2022 and is expected to expand at a CAGR of 8.8% over the forecast period. The demand for the product for food applications is anticipated to experience an upsurge over the coming years as consumers prefer balanced diets.

This, in turn, is likely to spur the growth of the market during the forecast period. The burgeoning importance of adequate protein intake in emerging markets of China and India, on account of the growing focus on advertising campaigns by companies for brand promotions is poised to remain a driving force for the market over the forecast period.
