Rising Need for Fermentation in Separate Batches

Fermentation processes involve chemical breakdown of substances, wherein considerable amount of heat and effervescence is released. End-users of fermented ingredients are being inclined towards batch fermentation process to lower the incidence of undue reactions during chemical breakdowns. Fermentation of substances done in separate batches ensures better quality of end-product, and also follows the manufacturing standards of regular sterilization of fermenters.

Through 2022, batch fermentation as a process will contribute to more than US$ 16 Bn in revenues. On the contrary, the demand for continuous fermentation process will be relatively less, and contribute to less than one-third share on global revenues during the forecast period.
