Though Liquid Fermented Sweeteners Hold Higher Market Share, Demand for Powder Form to Rise Faster

Published On : Oct 18, 2021

As per a new study by Persistence Market Research, the global fermented sweeteners market is currently valued at just over US$ 1 Bn, and is set to witness expansion at a CAGR of 6.8% over the forecast period of 2021 to 2031.

Major fermented sweetener producers are concentrating on launching innovative products that give customers extra functional and nutritional advantages. Manufacturers are also boosting their manufacturing of sugar-reduction-related products as well as their R&D efforts and distribution networks. With increased manufacturing capacity, cost per unit of the product falls, bringing the cost of fermented sweeteners closer to that of sucrose. This lower price will entice end users to view it as a profitable alternative.

Consumers are increasingly experimenting with innovative culinary products to please their taste buds. Manufacturers in the food business are focused on product innovation and development to launch new food items with functional and nutritional characteristics to fulfill the ever-increasing expectations of customers.

Manufacturers are stepping up their marketing efforts to raise customer knowledge about the advantages of fermented sweeteners. A few market players also participate in food expos, which provides them with an excellent platform to meet new consumers and display their products.

Mergers and acquisitions are a common corporate strategy for companies looking to expand into new markets or areas, obtain a competitive edge, or acquire new technologies and expertise. In the fermented sweetener industry, firms are focused on collaborative ventures to create new and competitive products that will benefit both parties involved.

  • In 2018, Cargill and DSM formed a joint venture named Avansya, to bring zero-calorie great-tasting sweeteners to the market. The joint venture produces Eversweet Stevia sweeteners by fermentation. The companies are offering affordable sweeteners produced with the help of DSM's fermentation technology, sweetener application expertise, and large-scale fermentation capacity.
