Global Fermenters Market Size (2023 to 2028)

The global market for fermenters is projected to rise at a CAGR of 7.78% from 2023 to 2028 and be worth USD 2.6 billion by 2028 from USD 1.78 billion in 2023.

The fermenter is a sterilized closed container that maintains optimum conditions for the cultivation of the growth of microorganisms. These are installed to perform fermentation processes, which have a wide range of usage in steady-state culture medium, for the extraction of cell separation, cell-free supernatant collection, and effluent treatment and purification.

Impact of COVID-19 on the fermenters market:

The COVID-19 outbreak began early in 2020. Lockdowns and quarantines have been the results of the coronavirus outbreak. Many businesses have suffered losses due to strict government restrictions. There was a rise in the unemployment rate as more deaths were reported. Due to the unexpected increase in the number of patients and the severe shortage of hospital resources, such as beds and staff, and oxygen cylinders, the financial situation has deteriorated.

The COVID-19 pandemic has positively impacted the global fermenters market since the global sales of fermenters increased due to manufacturers creating new products to combat the virus.

In addition, customers sought to replace fermented products with those from other virus-affected nations. As a result, these products' prices have decreased. As a result, more people have started embracing fermentation to produce food without harming the environment, including antivirals, medical supplies, and diagnostic tools to help combat COVID-19 during the pandemic.


Increased consumption of fermented beverages in developed economies, rising disposable income, technological innovations in fermenters, rising demand for biofuels, dairy products, and health supplements, and rising standard of living are propelling the fermenters market growth.

The high adoption of fermented foods and beverages in emerging economies, including alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages, increase in the introduction of innovative flavors in fermented beverages, increased competition, and increased challenges in organic growth and investments in research and development (R&D) to produce new drugs are some of the other factors driving the market growth.

Growing awareness of food preservation is driving the fermenters market.

Growing consumer prevalence of fermentation for healthcare, increasing population, increasing demand for antibiotics, and rising per capita income in developed and developing economies are expected to raise the overall demand market. In addition, the growing demand and consumption for fermented beverages such as wine and beer and growing consumer awareness about the benefits of fermentation and food preservation are also driving the growth of the fermenters market.

Increasing prevalence of food allergies and increased food intolerances, fermenting alcoholic beverages such as wine, beer, and whisky for long hours before being packaged, the ability of fermenters to produce large yields in a short time along with maintenance of unusual growing acidic or high temperatures conditions, and its ability to destroy harmful which are not suitable for the human body, high demand for antibiotic production due to increasing prevalence of infectious diseases, are some of the other significant factors driving the growth of global fermenters market.


The large-scale high maintenance costs due to high risks of contamination, the less commercial viability of large-scale fermenters, and the high cost of fermenters are expected to restrain the growth of the global fermenters market. Additionally, large-scale fermenters create problems with mixing, heating, controlling pH, temperature, and humidity, and handling large volumes of liquids and gases. Moreover, the design of large-scale fermenters is highly complicated and doesn't help but instead leads to initial installation costs, high maintenance costs, and overall becoming very expensive. Also, product adulteration, stringent government regulations and trade restrictions, rising manufacturing and packaging costs, and outdated production facilities are likely to limit the growth of the global fermenters market.

This research report on the global fermenters market has been segmented and sub-segmented based on the microorganism, application, process, mode of operation & region.

Fermenters Market – By Process:

  • Batch
  • Fed-Batch
  • Continuous

Based on the process, the continuous fermentation segment is expected to dominate throughout the forecast period owing to providing high output through a faster nutrient consumption rate, high turnover rate, high product yielding, and higher microbial growth and production efficiency. In addition, continuous culture does not require cleaning the fermenter each time, offers more control than batch culture, and is very efficient.

The batch fermentation segment also is anticipated to grow at a promising CAGR during the forecast period since it has the advantages of simple operation, easy maintenance of sterilization, and low investment cost. But a new culture is required after the extraction of the product each time.

Fermenters Market - By Application:

  • Beverages
  • Healthcare and Personal Care
  • Food

The beverage segment is expected to hold the most considerable proposition of the global fermenters market during the forecast period due to an increase in wine and beer production capacity, leading to increased use of fermentation technologies by beverage manufacturers.

The healthcare and personal care segment is also expected to increase over the forecast period for many reasons, including significant investments in R&D by pharmaceutical companies, increased prevalence of infectious diseases, increased demand for antibiotics which require the use of fermenters, the increase in demand for active vaccines, which is attributed to rising antibiotic consumption.

Fermenters Market - By Microorganisms:

  • Bacteria
  • Fungi

Based on microorganisms, the bacteria segment is anticipated to hold the largest share in the market because most fermented foods require the use of bacteria, which helps lower the risk of cardiovascular diseases, and type two diabetes, improve gastrointestinal health and provide other health benefits too. Mainly used bacteria are Bacillus and Pediococcus species, which are used to make fermented milk products like cheeses and make the amino acids lysine and glutamic.

However, the Fungi sector is also anticipated to grow at a fast rate since the basis of the brewing industry is alcoholic fungal fermentation, which uses the enzyme zymase from yeast to produce alcohol. In addition, Saccharomyces, another type of fungus, is responsible for making wines produced from grapes.

Fermenters Market - By Mode of Operation:

  • Automatic
  • Semi-Automatic

The automatic segment is poised to grow with a high CAGR during the forecast period owing to higher outputs and productivity rates, cost-effectiveness, and wide acceptance in commercial and industrial applications. These are also preferred in medium and large-scale production due to the more efficient use of materials and better product quality.

The semi-automatic brewery plant relies more on the traditional form, which includes beer recipes, a brewing facility, and training. Also, these systems have an extensive price range for different capacities.

Fermenters Market - By Region:

  • North America
  • Europe
  • Asia-Pacific
