Based on the type (ability to utilize the lactose) the global starter culture market segmented as follows:

  • Lactic Starter Culture
    • Cocci
    • Rods
  • Non lactic Starter Culture
    • Bacteria (except Rods and Cocci)
    • Molds
    • Yeast

Starter cultures have great industrial significance, which play any important role in manufacturing, texture and flavor of fermented food. Starter culture consists of consortium of microbes causing microbial activity, fermenting the food to give desired result. Lactic Starter Culture widely used in market because it plays primary role in production of lactic acid from lactose and probiotics; also it plays important role in manufacturing of fermented food, beverages and bread. Non lactic starter cultures are mainly used in cheese and beverage manufacturing industries due to factors such as increased significance of the fermentation in recent years. Besides the food and beverages, alcoholic beverages like beer, wine consumption has being on rampant globally, which led to growth of the market.

Starter Culture Market

Based on organism growth temperature, the global starter culture market is segmented as follows:

  • Mesophilic starter culture
  • Thermophilic starter culture

Starter cultures are carefully selected food-grade microorganisms, such as bacteria or fungi. Starter cultures have great importance in manufacturing, giving texture and flavor to the fermented food. Mesophilic starter culture organisms have optimum temperature for growths between 20 to 30°C. Mesophilic starter cultures include species of Lactococcus and Leuconostoc. Thermophilic starter cultures have optimum growth temperature between 35 to 45°C. Thermophilic starter cultures include species such as Lactobacillus, Bifidobacterium and Streptococcus. Mesophilic starter culture held the largest share in the global starter culture market and is anticipated to grow further during the forecast period because mesophilic starter culture blends are used primarily for American style and specialty cheeses, mesophilic starter culture used to make 90% of the variety of cheeses these factors are driving the growth of mesophilic starter culture globally. Another Key factors such as increase in consumption of fermented food and beverages, change in the consumption pattern of the global dietary pattern shifting towards the consumption of the fermented food are driving market growth globally. However, increased use of probiotic food during the recovery of organ transplant and abdominal surgery is also expected to increase the overall market growth of the market. Alcoholic beverages like beer, wine consumption has being on rampant globally, which led to growth of the starter culture market.  

Starter Culture Market

Based on the type of starter used, the global starter culture market segmented as follows:

  • Single-strain starters
  • Multi-strain starters
  • Mixed-strain starters

Starter culture have great importance in food and beverage industries. In starter culture, food grade microorganisms are deliberately added to initiate and carry out desired fermentation under controlled conditions. Single strain starters are usually used as a single organism in the preparation of milk based beverages or non-alcoholic beverages and bread products. Single-strains are exclusively used in the preparation beer and other alcoholic beverages. In multi-strain starters, more than two strains in known proportion are used to initiate fermentation. These are most widely used in probiotics and cheese producing industries. For mix-strain starter more than two organisms which may have different characteristics like, acid production, flavor production, slime production are used in unknown proportion. In 2015, mixed-strain starters held the largest share in the global starter culture market due to its consistency and predictability are being used more in the milk industry and especially in the preparation of cheese. The only issue restraining the growth of single-strain starter culture is there will be sudden failure of starter due to bacteriophage attack which leads to heavy loss to the industry.

Starter Culture Market

The global starter culture market segmented on the basis of application as follows:

  • Alcoholic Products
  • Non-Alcoholic Products

A starter culture is a microbial culture which actually performs fermentation. Starter culture assists the beginning of the fermentation process in preparation of various foods and fermented drinks. Fermentation process is one of the most common cost-effective and popular method for food processing and preservation, which is essential to meet the rising demand for packaged food and beverage products. Various fungi, yeasts and bacteria are used for the fermentation process of beer, wine and other alcoholic beverages. Cultures are widely used in the manufacturing of yoghurt, kefir, cheese, butter and other cultured milk products. In 2015, the non-alcoholic products held the largest market in the global starter culture market; the key market growth drivers are the change in the global dietary pattern which shifted towards the consumption of the fermented food; the consumers are enticed not only by the healthy benefits of the food but also the fermented drinks. In addition to this, increased use for dairy based products and baked products and rising demand of probiotics for the conferring the health benefits would further drive the non-alcoholic products market during the forecast period.

Starter Culture Market

For the purpose of this study, the global starter culture market is categorized into:

  • North America
  • Europe
  • Asia Pacific
  • Latin America (LATAM)
  • Middle East and Africa (MEA)

Starter Culture Market

Starter cultures have great industrial significance, which plays important role in fermented food industries globally. Starter cultures comprise of microorganisms present either in activated or deactivated mode in liquid, dried, or frozen form. Starter cultures are useful for the metabolic activity and enhance physical and chemical properties of the product under fermentation processes. Europe was observed as the largest market for starter culture as the highest demand and manufacturing of alcoholic beverages in this region, increased use of probiotics and consumers ready to pay premium prices for beverages that offer health benefits acting as the key growth drivers in this region. North America accounted for the second largest market for starter culture. The market is driven by the substantial increase in the demand for alcoholic and fermented nutritional product in the region. Moreover, the tremendous technological advancement in the process of fermentation in North America also assists the market growth. In Asia Pacific market, due to its immense population and robust growth rate in this region, in the near future this region will continue to grow as a global trendsetter of starter culture market. The favorable market and geographical conditions favor the growth and activities of the starter culture, and further help investors to set large numbers of starter culture manufacturing units in these regions.
