The global microbial fermentation technology market size was valued at USD 30.7 billion in 2023, driven by the increasing demand for bio-based products across the globe. The market size is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 5.5% during the forecast period of 2024-2032 to achieve a value of USD 49.8 billion by 2032.
Microbial fermentation is the biochemical process of extracting chemical energy from carbohydrates without oxygen. The process occurs in bacteria, yeasts, or even in muscles of humans. Microbial fermentation is performed by metabolic enzymes. A wide range of microorganisms are present during the fermentation and each of the microorganisms has a particular set of enzymes which is responsible for the amalgamation of sophisticated mixtures byproduct, which develops the foul taste and smell of fermented foods. The most common example of fermented edibles is alcohol beverages such as wine and beer, among others. The existence of microbial fermentation is spotted in almost every biomass.
The definition of microbial fermentation is anaerobic conversion of sugar into alcohol and yeast. However, in the pharmaceutical sector, it is widely used to manage microorganisms for antibiotics, therapeutic proteins, enzymes, and insulin. Temperature-controlled tanks, also known as fermenters, are widely used for the fermentation with correct concentration of nutrients to harvest the solicited organism.
The growth of the market is driven by several factors such as the increasing popularity of continuous fermentation processes due to their potential for increased productivity and reduced production costs compared to traditional batch fermentation. Continuous systems can provide a more stable environment for microorganisms, leading to higher yields and faster product generation. Rising automation and robotics developments have made it possible for researchers to screen a variety of microbes and fermentation conditions at high throughput, further propelling the global microbial fermentation technology market growth.
Additionally, the research of microbial fermentation is increasingly using omics technologies, such as genomes, transcriptomics, proteomics, and metabolomics, among others. These technologies offer a thorough understanding of the genetic and metabolic characteristics of microorganisms, assisting in strain selection and procedure optimization.
Microbial fermentation is increasingly being explored as a means of converting waste materials into valuable products. This aligns with the principles of the circular economy, where waste is seen as a resource, promoting sustainable and environmentally friendly production methods. The rising emphasis on the use of renewable resources, such as feedstocks for microbial fermentation, is also increasing the microbial fermentation technology market demand. Agricultural byproducts, lignocellulosic biomass, and other non-food sources are some of them, reducing the dependency on fossil fuels and conventional raw materials.

The market for microbial fermentation has been witnessing significant growth during the historical period and is expected to keep growing in the coming years as well. The increasing demand for fermented food products and beverages, including natural and organic food products, is driving the market growth. Rising consumer health consciousness is increasingly contributing to the market growth. The ability of microbial fermentation to keep the food products intact and safe to eat for a longer time span is directly contributing to the global microbial fermentation market share. The increasing prevalence of infectious diseases is propelling the demand for more fermented microbial products, such as vaccines and antibiotics, which are used to treat patients from infections.
The increasing demand for bio-based products is also supporting the market growth as microbial fermentation can be used to enhance the production of bio-based chemicals, fields, and other materials, which ultimately results in the fulfillment of eco-conscious consumers and industries. Microbial fermentation is widely used in the food and beverage industry to produce various products, including yogurt, cheese, bread, beer, wine, and other fermented foods. The growing demand for these products is augmenting the demand for microbial fermentation on a larger scale in the market.
