The "Fermenters Market by Application (Food, Beverage, and Healthcare & Cosmetics), Microorganism (Bacteria and Fungi), Process (Batch, Fed-batch, and Continuous), Mode of Operation (Semi-automatic and Automatic), and Region - Global Forecast to 2023" report has been added to's offering.

The fermenters market is estimated at USD 1.13 billion in 2018 and is projected to reach USD 1.69 billion by 2023, growing at a CAGR of 8.4% during the forecast period.

The rise in application of fermentation technology in food, beverage, and pharmaceutical industries, along with the growing consumer perception regarding fermentation in terms of health claims, is the major factors spurring the demand for fermenters across the globe.

One of the major restraining factors for the growth of the fermenters market is the high cost associated with large-scale fermenters. The high contamination risks associated with large-scale commercial, microbial, or biopharmaceutical fermenters are avoided by incorporating sterilize-in-place and clean-in-place systems in fermenters, which result in high cost. Also, manufacturers are preferring conical shaped fermenters for high-quality beverages, which are available at a higher price.

Based on process, the fed-batch fermenters dominated the market in terms of value. The application of these fermenters in extensive production of microbial cultures for various applications and production of mammalian cell culture systems are the main factors for the dominance of fed-batch systems in the market.

The beverage segment, by application, accounted for the largest share of the global fermenters market in 2017. With the increasing consumption of fermented beverages in the US and European countries, the production facilities of beer and wine have been increasing across the globe, which in turn reflects an increasing demand for fermenters. Beverage and food applications are projected to grow at a higher rate in the global market for fermenters, owing to the increasing adoption of fermentation technologies by key players for development of novel products.

Fermenters made using stainless steel, accounted for the largest share of the global fermenters market in 2017, by material. Owing to the advantages of reusability, increased durability, and ease in sanitization, stainless steel fermenters are increasingly preferred by end-use industries. Moreover, the adoption of stainless steel fermenters for large-scale production of metabolites in developed regions such as North America and Europe, contribute to the high demand for these fermenters in the market.

Asia Pacific is projected to be the fastest-growing market for fermenters during the forecast period. Emerging economies such as India have favorable market potential for fermented food products, which has led to food manufacturers in these countries adopting strategies such as expansions to cater to the demand and using fermenters to increase the production capacity of fermented products.

Also, Asia Pacific is expanding as a leading region in the production of a variety of probiotic-based foods, beverages, and dietary supplements, along with innovations in the dessert, confectionery, and fermented food sectors. The growing population and per capita income in China, India, and Japan are expected to drive the demand for fermented foods & beverages, which, in turn, drive the demand for fermenters.

Players such as Eppendorf AG (Germany), Sartorius (Germany), Pierre Guerin SAS (France), and Applikon Biotechnology BV (Netherlands) have been actively strategizing their growth plans to expand in the fermenters market. These companies have a strong presence in Europe and North America, and also have manufacturing facilities across these regions and a strong distribution network.
