The Yeast and Bacteria for Food Production industry has flourished over the past five years. Traditional markets for industry products, especially bread production and beer production, have remained steady over the five years to 2017. Meanwhile, new markets for products have emerged, including craft beer brewing and probiotic food production. However, a sizeable share of this growing domestic demand is met by imports. Over the five years to 2022, imports will continue to capture a major share of demand, but production in the United States is also expected to pick up.
This industry comprises establishments primarily engaged in producing yeasts and bacteria used in human and animal food and beverages as flavor enhancers, bakery goods, brewing and health and dietary supplements.
This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
