Protective Cultures Market

Protective Cultures Market by Product Form (Freeze-dried and Frozen), Target Microorganism (Yeasts & Molds and Bacteria), Application (Dairy & Dairy Products, Meat & Poultry Products, and Seafood), Composition, and Region - Global Forecast to 2023

Report Code: FB 6787 Dec, 2018, by marketsandmarkets.com

[146 Pages Report] The overall protective systems market is projected to grow from USD 101 million in 2018 to USD 292 million by 2023, at a CAGR of 23.6%. The use of protective cultures follows the increasing market trend of clean label products. The demand for increasing shelf life and enforcing higher transparency and traceability standards is expected to favor the growth of protective cultures in the food industry.

Protective Cultures Market

On the basis of product form, the freeze-dried segment is projected to be the larger contributor in the protective cultures market during the forecast period

The protective cultures market has been segmented on the basis of product form into freeze-dried and frozen. The market for freeze-dried cultures is projected to record the higher CAGR between 2018 and 2023. Freeze-dried cultures are easier to maintain and transport, while also maintaining the stability of the cultures. They are easier to store and are comparatively inexpensive, without the need for significant additional cold-chain support.

Consumer awareness regarding clean label products drives the market for dairy & dairy products

The protective cultures market is segmented on the basis of application into dairy & dairy products, meat & poultry products, seafood, and others. The market for seafood is projected to record the highest CAGR between 2018 and 2023. The increased production and processing of seafood for exports has had a positive impact on the market. The dairy & dairy products segment is dominant in the applications segment due to the growth of protective cultures in the cheese industry.

High demand from end-user industries for yeast & mold prevention leads the way for protective cultures

The protective cultures market is segmented on the basis target microorganisms into yeasts & molds and bacteria. The market for cultures that protect from yeasts & molds is projected to witness a higher CAGR between 2018 and 2023. The market for protective cultures in the dairy industry is significant and is primarily used in cheese manufacturing. Yeast & mold spoilage is a major factor affecting the quality and use of cheese products. The use of protective cultures has helped extend the shelf-life for these products to benefit cheese producers.

Protective Cultures Market

Europe is projected to account for the largest market size during the forecast period

The European protective cultures market is estimated to be the largest for protective cultures, while the Asia Pacific market is projected to grow at the highest CAGR. The rise in demand for clean label products and the need for better transparency and traceability in food is aiding the growth of protective cultures in the region. Europe also hosts the largest concentration of producers in the protective cultures industry, with major industry leaders maintaining their operations in the region.

Key players in the market include CHR Hansen (Denmark), DowDuPont (US), Sacco S.R.L (Italy), CSK Food Enrichment B.V. (Netherlands), THT S.A. (Belgium), Dalton Biotechnologies (Italy), Biochem S.R.L (Italy), Meat Cracks Technology GmbH (Germany), Royal DSM N.V. (Netherlands), Bioprox (France), Aristomenis D. Phikas & Co SA. (Greece), and Soyuzsnab Group of Companies (Russia). These players are undertaking a strategy involving new product launches and expansions to improve their market position and extend their competitive advantage.

Recent Developments

  • In November 2018, DSM expanded its Delvo Guard protective cultures to reinforce safety standards for clean label products. The culture was designed to prevent the formation of yeast and mold in dairy products to extend the shelf life of products without any effect on the taste and texture.
  • In October 2018, the DuPont Nutrition & Health Team in South America launched the DuPont Danisco Lactobacillus Plus, which combines strains of L. paracasei, L. helveticus, and L. acidophilus in the production of fermented milk. These strains provide a better balance in terms of flavor and acidity, while optimizing the production process through rapid fermentation.

Critical questions the report answers:

  • Where will all these developments take the industry in the mid to long term?
  • What are the upcoming industry applications for protective cultures?
  • What is the impact of the dairy industry on protective cultures?
  • What are the new technologies being introduced in protective cultures?
  • What are the latest trends in protective cultures?
