The feed sector commands a significant share of the market, driven by growing demand for feed products with enhanced nutritional benefits.

The increasing demand for yeast-based feed solutions reflects a broader shift towards sustainable and efficient agricultural practices. With companies such as Phileo by Lesaffre (France) introducing innovative products like the Actisaf Sc 47 HR+ probiotic for the poultry sector, there’s a clear emphasis on meeting this demand through research-driven solutions. These yeast-based additives offer a range of benefits, including improved feed efficiency, enhanced gut health, and better nutrient digestibility, leading to improved animal performance and welfare. As such, investments in launching new yeast-based feed products not only cater to current market demands but also drive forward the industry’s commitment to innovation and sustainability.

By type, the baker’s yeast segment is projected to account for the largest share in the yeast market.

During the forecast period, the baker’s segment is expected to lead the market in terms of type, primarily due to the cost-effectiveness and extensive applications of baker’s yeast across various industries, including food and feed. The expansion of the baker’s yeast market correlates directly with the growing consumption of bakery products, especially bread, particularly in developed regions.

Notably, the All India Bread Manufacturer’s Association (AIBMA) reports that India’s per capita consumption of bread is estimated to be around 1.5 kg to 1.75 kg. This surge in bakery product consumption, particularly bread, is a significant driver behind the anticipated growth of the baker’s yeast segment in the market throughout the forecast period. Additionally, advancements in baking technology and the increasing popularity of artisanal bread are expected to further fuel the demand for baker’s yeast in the global market.
