Global Microbial Protein Market Insights

Microbial Protein Market size was valued at USD 44.3 million in 2021 and is poised to grow from USD 47.3 million in 2022 to USD 76.8 million by 2030, growing at a CAGR of 6.7% in the forecast period (2023-2030).

Protein can also be obtained by cultivating various bacteria and algae, ideally those with more than 30% protein in their biomass and a good balance of essential amino acids. Although some generating microorganisms, such as filamentous fungus or filamentous algae, may be multicellular, microbial protein is commonly referred to as single cell protein (SCP). In addition to their direct use as SCP, microorganisms contribute to protein demand through improving the protein content or quality of fermented foods. Although microbial protein accounts only a modest component of current human nutrition, the increasing global demand for protein is anticipated to make SCP more essential.

High growth rates or the ability to use unique substrates, such as CO2 or methane, result in procedures that are far more efficient and/or sustainable than traditional agriculture.

US Microbial Protein Market is poised to grow at a sustainable CAGR for the next forecast year.

Global Microbial Protein Market Segmental Analysis

The global Microbial Protein market is segmented based on type, application and region. Based on type, Microbial Protein market is segmented into Algae, Bacteria, Yeast, Fungi. Based on application, the market is segmented into dietary nutrition, functional nutrients, sports nutrition, infant nutrition, others. Based on region, the Microbial Protein market is categorized into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and MEA.

Microbial Protein market Analysis by type

Bacterial Proteins dominated the market in 2021, accounting for a CAGR of 7.9%. Microbial Protein production can take place in highly controlled, contained, and automated bioreactors similar to those used in the food industry's fermentation operations. Because bacteria can convert Haber Bosch nitrogen into cellular protein with an unrivaled efficiency of close to 100% in such reactor systems, the overall nitrogen efficiency of the complete feed/food chain would become far higher than conventional protein supply routes. In comparison to fungus, algae, and yeast, bacteria have the advantage of not only growing quickly on organic substrates but also on gases such as methane, hydrogen, and syngas (a mixture of CO + H2). When bacteria are fed one of these substrates, they can create highly concentrated cellular protein that accounts for up to 75 wt% of the dry microbial biomass at protein production rates of 2-4 kg per m3 reactor volume per hour. The rates of protein production using naturally occurring microbes are several orders of magnitude higher than plant-based protein production. The ability of bacteria to utilise hydrogen (in combination with carbon dioxide), methane gas, or syngas as their energy source creates a once-in-a-lifetime potential to entirely bypass agriculture-based feed and food production, allowing for nearly land-free Microbial Protein production.

Global Microbial Protein Market Dynamics

Microbial Protein market Driver

  • Spirulina protein gaining traction

Increasing consumer awareness of algal proteins, such as spirulina, which is high in minerals and antioxidants and provides numerous health advantages, is increasing demand for microbial proteins. Furthermore, in terms of protein amount, amino acid purity, and nutritional acceptability, algal proteins have a high nutritional value. Their functional features, such as gelation, water and fat absorption capacity, emulsification capacity, and foaming capacity, qualify them for a variety of novel applications.

Microbial Protein market Opportunity

  • Rising emphasis on mycoproteins

Mycoprotein is a great source of fiber, having approximately six grams of fiber per 100 grams, which is up to 24% of the fiber that a consumer requires for the entire day. Mycoprotein has also gained advantageous properties, propelling its use in a variety of food and allied industries. Its low-energy, low-fat, and high-fiber profile makes it an excellent source of nutritious protein. Emerging data also suggests that mycoprotein consumption has broader benefits, such as potential satiety as well as metabolic and muscle benefits. Manufacturers and product formulators are attempting to enter the market with their novel products and ingredient offerings, catering to the expanding customer demand.

Microbial Protein market Recent Development

  • In August 2021, Prolgae launched its sweet Spirulina powder and Spirulina protein bar all-in-one superfood products in India. Speciality of the product is that it is 100% vegan product to help people to stay healthy and to add up the immunity to their regular routine, as it 5 gms of Spirulina is said to be equal to 5 kg of assorted fresh vegetables.
  • In May 2021, Mycorena launched the product Promyc, a microbial protein that has applications in various foods.

Global Microbial Protein Key Market Trends

  • Microbial protein is a highquality protein source that can substitute animal protein such as fishmeal in livestock feeding and aquaculture. Moving up the food chain, microbial protein meets the FAO/WHO requirements for essential amino acid scoring patterns in human nutrition, and hence people could benefit considerably from the use of MP directly as food. Fungi are another viable option that has made their way into human cuisine. QuornTM is the most successful example of mycoprotein, having been commercialized and sold in over 15 countries across the world. Mycoproteins are particularly well suited to mimicking the flavor and consistency of meat, which explains their popularity as an alternative to traditional animal-based goods. Currently, mycoprotein production for QuornTM product manufacture totals 25,000 tons per year, with a global market value of around 214 million Euro, and is expected to rise at a rate of 20% per year in the next years.
