Global Starter Cultures Market Overview

The Global Starter Cultures market was valued at USD 1.01 billion in 2021 and is expected to reach USD 1.42 billion by the year 2028, at a CAGR of 5%.

Starter cultures are referred to as the microorganisms that are utilized in the manufacturing of cultured dairy products such as yogurt and cheese. The natural microflora of the milk is either uncontrollable, inefficient, and unpredictable, or is destroyed thoroughly by the heat treatments given to the milk. Additionally, a starter culture can have special properties in a more controlled and predictable fermentation. The primary function of lactic starters is the development of lactic acid from lactose. Other functions of starter cultures may include such as flavor, aroma, and alcohol production, proteolytic and lipolytic activities, retardation of nasty organisms. Furthermore, starter cultures or starters are individual or mixed microbial cultures used in known concentrations to assist and conduct fermentation in meat products. Bacteria, particularly coagulase-negative staphylococci (CNS), lactic acid bacteria (LAB), and as well as yeasts and molds, are utilized as starters, thus contributing to growing the safety of fermented meat products.

In addition, starters may support standardizing product properties and condense maturing times of fermented meat products. Starter cultures, which are pondering as GRAS (Generally Regarded as Safe) by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), are capable to impede the growth of undesirable microbiota, such as pathogenic and spoilage microorganisms. Moreover, selection criteria for starter cultures should take into account the raw material, the properties of the strain(s), food safety requirements, and quality features.  Additionally, starter culture improves the lifespan of these products and controls bacterial activity. On the back of these signs of using a starter culture, the dairy industry is anticipated to develop as the largest end-use segment in the global starter culture market.

COVID-19 Impact on Global Starter Cultures Market

During the global COVID19 outbreak and the lock-down over the world, the consumer food & beverage industry observed high demand in the markets. The top producers in the industry are experienced with low consumption of their products in the market and disrupt in sales channel system makes a huge decline in sales and revenue growth. Owing to the closure of supermarkets and other stores and supplies, the companies are targeting more on modifying their distributional channel system to strengthen the online platform and delivery service. The closure of production units owing to lockdown is poorly impacted by the scale of production and the global starter culture market.

Market Dynamics and Factors for the Global Starter Cultures Market

Drivers:

Growing Offering of Dairy-Based Products and Meat and Seafood

The rising production of dairy-based products and meat & seafood has led to growth in demand for starter cultures. By the growing consciousness of the significance of using starter cultures and the rising number of manufacturers, the starter culture market has shown consistent growth over the years. Starter cultures have been utilized in dairy applications for a long time. During the production of yogurt, cheese, butter, and kefir, starter cultures are used for the fermentation process to take place. The drop in pH, which takes place when the bacteria ferment lactose to form lactic acid, has a preservative effect on the product, while at the same time enhancing the digestibility and nutritional abilities. Yogurt starter cultures are utilized to ferment (lactose) to produce lactic acid. This process supports the formation of milk clots, which are a characteristic of yogurt. Cheese starter cultures majorly comprise of thermophilic bacteria, which helps in lactic acid production over the industrial manufacturing of cheese. Additionally, acid manufacturing is the key factor in the expulsion of moisture from the cheese curd and aids in boosting the quality and texture of the cheese produced.

Growing Demand of Ready-to-Drink Beverages

The rising demand for ready-to-drink beverages is another factor turning the global starter culture market over the forecast period. Shifting lifestyle along with the increasing health concern and busy schedules of people over the globe is further turning its market. Moreover, as consumers seek benefits the ready-to-drink sector has been quick to fulfill this demand with a torrent of new innovative offerings thus turning its market growth.

Restraints:

Differentiations In the Cost of Raw Materials

The prices of raw materials for starter cultures are explosive, leading to variability in the food & beverage market. Yeast mainly increases in beet or cane molasses, and these are the main substrates for its production. In recent years, the cost of molasses is rising owing to their applications in other industrial applications such as feed and bio-ethanol production. Yeast also develops on sugar substrates such as sugar syrups. Hence, growth in the cost of sugar has a direct influence on the cost of yeast starter cultures.

Strict Government Ordinance on Application of Microorganism in Food Products

Strict government regulation on the use of microorganisms in food products is hampering the market growth over the forecast period. The increased application of food culture to ferment perishable raw materials has strengthened the requirement of regulation to access and assure the safety of food culture and their uses thereby hindering its market growth.

Opportunities:

Apart from the surging demand from the food and beverages industry, rising healthcare awareness among the consumers is another major factor accelerating the demand in the global starter culture market. In addition, technological developments in the start culture industry, for example genetically modified start cultures, are anticipated to flourish the market growth throughout the forecast period.

Furthermore, the incoming second generation of starter cultures is anticipated to build its range of capabilities further to cover fruits, vegetables, and other food substances as well. The existing market involving seafood, meat, and alcoholic beverages continues to present avenues for growth as the producer's participation in this segment is still the least. Key Players such as DSM (Netherlands) and Chr. Hansen (Denmark) is leading the way toward introducing themselves in the Asia Pacific market region over the projected period to merge their positions in the global starter culture market. Furthermore, the utilization of starter cultures in their current state is special to fermented foods and dairy products; nevertheless, improvements of new strain types and mixed multi-strains are anticipated to build the capabilities of starter cultures to non-fermented products and other food types.

Market Segmentation

Segmentation Analysis of Global Starter Cultures Market:

Based on the Form, freeze-dried is projected to account for the maximum market share during the forecast period. With freeze-drying, microorganisms can be preserved without causing harmful damage to their physical or molecular functions. Consequently, the adoption of the freeze-drying method has raised significantly for microbe-based applications. These cultures can simply be rehydrated, depending on the application's need. Freeze drying is utilized in different application areas such as fermented milk and cheese.

Based on the Microorganism, the bacteria segment is expected to dominate the market over the forecast period. Bacteria is the most common microorganism utilized for starter cultures, especially owing to their large-scale application in dairy & dairy-based products. Streptococcus thermophilus is the second-major commercially important starter culture. It is used, along with the Lactobacillus species, as a multi-strain mixed starter culture for the production of different fermented dairy foods such as fermented milk, yogurt, and mozzarella cheese. Thermophilic bacteria are majorly used as starter cultures compared to mesophilic bacteria, based on the product portfolio of several producers.

Based on the Application, dairy products are expected to record the largest market share throughout the market share due to the growing demand for yogurt, cheese, kefir, and other cultured milk products as well as in butter making and cheese making and the increasing demand in bakery & confectionary. Moreover, the sourdough application has been widely praised in the last few years due to the customer's demand for food utilization without the addition of chemical preservatives. Furthermore, different starter cultures have been utilized in sourdough bread making focusing on the rise of bread self-life and the development of sensorial character.
