Gloabl Yeast Market Overview

The Yeast Market Size is expected to reach a value of USD 8.67 Billion over the forecast period ending in 2030, at a CAGR of 8.78%. The Market Value was recorded at USD 3,980 Million in the historic forecast period which has ended in 2020. Yeast market belongs to the fungus kingdom and is classed as a eukaryotic single-celled creature. Autolysates and yeast extracts are two types of specialized yeast available on the market. In baked goods, nutritional supplements, and probiotics, yeast and yeast extract are commonly employed.

Breaker's yeast is used in the manufacturing of ethanol, baked goods, and antibiotics, among other things. The yeast is also utilized in the creation of alcoholic drinks, where Saccharomyces cerevisiae spices can also be detected. For example, due to increased demand for pharmaceutical, feed, and pet food products, yeast and yeast extract adoption is increasing globally. The commercialization of yeast has ushered in a period of transformation for the yeast business. The global yeast market share is expanding due to rising demand for bakery products, the global trend of purchasing alcoholic beverages, and the global demand for bioethanol as a fuel.

COVID 19 Analysis

The COVID-19 epidemic has harmed the food and beverage industries, resulting in the temporary closure of manufacturing facilities and a drop in demand for the yeast market. Players in the yeast sector are concentrating on nurturing their supply chains and speeding up their operations to prevent future income losses, with the primary aim of preventing the spread of SARS-CoV-2 among healthcare professionals. Furthermore, with the progressive lifting of the lockdown across countries and the containment of the novel coronavirus, the worldwide market can recover more quickly in the future. The global market share and yeast market size have accelerated due to market participants' promotional initiatives. The global market is predicted to develop faster in the next years than it is now.

Market Dynamics


Strong demand for bakery items around the world, expanding consumption of alcoholic beverages, and a growing focus on improving animal feed production should all work in the yeast market's favor shortly and will help in market growth. Growing consumer awareness of health issues, changing lifestyles, and strong demand for high-nutrition, high-quality convenience foods will all contribute to yeast market trends. To gain loyalty and strengthen their market positions, top companies are continually looking for methods to cater to evolving consumer needs. In addition, the growing importance of local bakeries in many nations is expected to raise yeast consumption in the coming years. Over the evaluation period, industry participants may benefit from high innovation and manufacturing capabilities, as well as strong customer interactions which will help in achieving the market forecast.


Factors such as high demand for key raw materials and a lack of understanding among farmers about the benefits of feed could stymie market expansion in the coming years. In the years ahead, the yeast market value will be harmed by a lack of government assistance in several countries, as well as shrinking R&D funds. There has been an upsurge in the need for hygiene goods, food, and medical products among the demographic. It also reduced the demand for yeast, which is frequently used in the cosmetics and personal care industries. As a result, the growth of the yeast market outlook has been significantly slowed which has resulted in lower market analysis.

Technology Analysis

Packed baked goods, such as cakes, are likely to have increased demand in the next few years, owing to a growing preference for snacking on packed cakes, particularly among children around the world. Pizza consumption has been trending at its highest level in four years, and pizza-focused ideas are growing across channels, which is projected to fuel demand for baker's yeast throughout the projection period. Bread and bakery product sales have been boosted by the continued spike in demand for free-from and specialty bread, as well as the impact of inflation on retail prices, which is pushing demand for baker's yeast in these applications. The use of technology in the market has proved to be the best thing for yeast market analysis and market growth. The expected growth in the yeast market is much higher and the use of technology is one of the major reasons behind it which will help in fulfilling the expected Market Forecast.
