The global fermentation chemicals market size was USD 100 Billion in 2022 and is expected to reach USD 168.95 Billion in 2032, and register a rapid revenue CAGR of 6% during the forecast period. Rising usage of fermentation chemicals in various industries, including pharmaceutical, F&B, and chemical industries, is a major factor driving market revenue growth..

Fermentation chemicals are used as the essential raw material in the alcohol industry. The fermentation process produces Ethanol, the main chemical used in the production of alcohol and alcoholic beverages. As a result, increasing demand for alcoholic beverages would play a significant role in driving market growth. Additionally, various other industries including cosmetic, pharmaceutical, and food and beverages industry require fermentation chemicals to maintain a smooth flow of the production process. Therefore, the growth of these industries across the globe, in turn, would be responsible for stimulating market demand.

The imposition of strict legislation by regulatory authorities in developed regions like Europe will play a vital role in fueling the market growth in the forecast period. Agencies comprising the European Commission and EPA categorically encourage green chemistry through their regulatory framework, which in turn can be supported by the application of fermentation chemicals.

The high cost involved in the fermentation of lactic acid prevents its uses in the dairy industry. Furthermore, the variation of the production process in the fermentation of ethanol, bacteria, lactic acid may hinder the market growth. The production of eco-friendly fermentation chemicals would open a window of opportunity for its application in the sectors including biomass conversion.
