Bio-preservatives Demand Prevails in Food & Beverages Sector

The preservation of food has always been an important factor for the food industry, and has been in practice since ages. Increasing trade of food products across the globe has led to the increasing demand for food preservatives, thus supporting the growth of bio preservatives. Bio preservatives such as bacteriocins are used to inhibit the growth of harmful microbes in a wide variety of food and beverage products.

The preferred use of bacteriocins such as Nisin in these applications is due to their heat-resistant property, since thermal processing is extensively used in food processing. Even at high-temperatures, Nisin and other bacteriocins serve to inhibit the growth of spores and save food products from any kind of spoilage. Apart from Nisin being a heat-resistive preservative, it also acts as a broad spectrum preservative, effective against many gram-positive organisms such as lactic acid bacteria, listeria monocytogenes, staphylococcus aureus, bacillus cereus, and clostridium botulinum, among others, which is expected to drive the growth of the 2018-2026 market over the forecast period.

The global nisin market is, however, currently restrained by precised production; as the production process of nisin is highly sensitive and requires a lot of precision. If, by chance, there is any imbalance in the lactate concentration beyond a standard level, and a decrease in the pH level, it can drastically affect the final end product, which is expected to be a significant restraining factor for the growth of the nisin market over the forecast period.

Revenue generated from nisin market is estimated to be valued at roughly US$ 320.6 Mn by the end of 2018 and is expected to increase at a CAGR of 4.2% over the forecast period. Global nisin market are expected to be valued at approximately US$ 445.6 Mn by the end of 2026.

Escalating Consumption of Alcoholic Beverages Fuels Nisin Consumption

The application of bio preservative such as nisin is not limited to food products. It can be applied to wine, beer, distilled spirits, and other alcoholic beverages as well. Nisin helps prevent rancidity caused by lactic acid bacteria in alcoholic beverages. It helps in the inhibition of gram positive bacteria during the fermentation process. Nisin also helps extend the shelf life of non-pasteurized beer, and reduces the ripe taste. All these properties are contributing to the growth of nisin over the forecast period.

Moreover, according to the recent past activities in various regions of the world, it can be concluded that, the consumption of alcohol or alcohol-based products has become an accompaniment for a number of reasons, such as celebrations, commiserations, the end of a working day, and others. In many developed regions such as Europe, Canada, and the U.S., alcohol is a socially accepted part of daily life. The younger population of the world is influenced by their peer group or peer thinking, which factor is driving the growth of alcoholic products, hence supporting the growth of the nisin market, which is expected to continue over the forecast period.

Growing Preference for Clean Label Foods Pushes Demand for Nisin

Although the demand for clean label food products is increasing with robust growth, that in Eastern European countries is expected to be relatively lower. The major two countries in Eastern Europe have a below average disposable income per capita set by OECD (Organisation de Coopération et de Développement Économiques). Clean label food products are priced in the premium range, and low disposable incomes may act as a restraint to products such as clean label food, organic food, and others, and is expected to restrain the demand for food products manufactured with clean label ingredients such as nisin, as their prices are high as compared to conventional products which contain synthetic preservatives.

The study demonstrates market dynamics that are expected to influence the current challenges and future status of the global nisin market over the forecast period. This report also offer updates on trends, drivers, restraints, value forecasts, and opportunities for manufacturers operating in the global and regional nisin market.

The demand for clean label food has been witnessing substantial growth, globally, in the past few years. Increasing consumer awareness regarding the health benefits of products containing natural ingredients and strong support from multinational ingredient manufacturing companies for the development of such products are key factors driving the demand for clean label ingredients, such as those produced without the use of any additives, chemicals, and artificial ingredients, and minimally produced. Moreover, consumers are currently more informed regarding the benefits of using natural ingredients through various social media platforms. The popularity of synthetic preservatives is dramatically falling in the recent past. Consumer dissatisfaction with regards to synthetic additives available in the market is prompting food manufacturers towards developing food products with natural preservatives, by replacing preservatives such as benzoates and sorbets with clean label solutions, hence supporting the growth of the nisin market.
