Global Isinglass Market Outlook

Globally, beer consumption has grown significantly over the years. As a matter of fact, since 1990, the total beer consumption has grown rather rapidly. Cask-conditioned beer is one such type of beer which has witnessed higher rate of consumption, attributable to easy availability and affordable prices. With the rise in demand for beer, demand for beer ingredients, such as Isinglass, has also increased, especially from the brewery industry. Isinglass is used in large scale production of cask-conditioned beers. Isinglass accelerates the process of sedimentation in live yeast, which is flocculated into a jelly-like mass which settles at the bottom of the cask. Isinglass is obtained from the dried swim bladders of fish and is mainly used in the clarification and fining of some beers and wine. Isinglass is processed and dried into several formats and is preferably used in liquid and powder form.

Global Isinglass Market: Reasons for Covering this Title

The United States, UK and Germany were the traditional beer consumers. However, over the past two decades, per capita consumption of beer has increased strongly in developing countries of the Asia-Pacific region especially, China and India, which is driving the overall global demand for beer. Owing to rising demand for beer, more and more manufacturers are producing cask-conditioned beer since it is economical and has been witnessing high demand. Isinglass is also used in large-scale production of such beer. Isinglass enhances filter performance and beer foam stability. It also reduces production cost and can be used in the production of both types of beers i.e. cask conditioned and brewery conditioned beers.
