These are single-cell proteins used in food and beverage, pharmaceuticals and animal feed industries. Products including yeast and fusarium venenatum are used to extract nutrient-rich proteins.

Based on product, the global market is segmented into yeast and fusarium venenatum. Yeast is a rich source of B vitamins, proteins, and minerals including zinc, selenium, copper and chromium. It is widely used by the food & beverage industry due to its ability to improve the fermentation process, impart texture, aroma, flavor, and taste to food.

It helps to improve and maintain a healthy digestive system along with weight management by limiting the fat absorption. Reduced risks of cardiovascular diseases and stronger bones & muscles are among the key aspects augmenting product adoption.

However, companies are investing in new technological developments and production capacity expansions to enhance their product portfolio. For instance, in February 2020, a Sweden-based startup Mycorena launched its fungi-based myco-protein ‘Promyc’. The company’s fungi technology is highly sustainable and claims to consume 20 times less water than required for beef production and six times lower than chicken.

Coronavirus pandemic has resulted in imposition of travel ban and shutdown of manufacturing units, offices & marketplaces by governments all over the world. These measures have led to value chain disruptions throughout the globe. This has negatively impacted raw materials supply for producing fungal proteins. This virus outbreak has resulted to global lockdown of manufacturing plants which may decrease fungal protein utilization.

Fungal protein market from yeast is estimated to witness significant gains of over 5.5% through 2026. Fusarium venenatum will emerge as the prominent type of fungal protein used across several key industries due to its ability to adapt to the large-scale fermentation processes. It finds application in production of industrial enzymes including xylanase and trypsin used in preparation of foodstuff. Potential applications in the form of meat alternatives that are textured & flavored to look like beef or chicken have enhanced product demand among vegetarian and flexitarian populace. Also, several manufacturers claim fusarium venenatum-based mycoprotein as an excellent source of protein and fiber, lower in fats and saturated fat compared to meat equivalents.

It is also used in breakfast cereals and dairy as a fat replacer and has higher percentage of essential amino acids than plant-based options.  Moreover, it is also being used in convenience products including fillets, burgers, nuggets, goujons, and ready meals by manufacturers as it can help in control of blood lipids, blood glucose, and appetite effects due to the presence of high protein and dietary fiber content.

Booming food & beverages demand will stimulate yeast based fungal protein market growth

Europe fungal protein market is estimated to witness significant CAGR of over 5% through 2026. Strong growth in the bakery & processed food sector will create potential growth opportunities for fungal proteins including baker’s yeast and brewer’s yeast in the region. Moreover, increasing vegetarian diet preferences and high awareness regarding importance of consuming organic food products including yeast and fusarium venenatum will augment regional industry trends.

Favorable regulations & guidelines provided by government agencies for protein and dietary fiber intake level have instilled trust among health-conscious consumers on these products, which will assist business growth. For instance, the European Food Safety Authority Scientific Panel on Dietetic Products, Nutrition, and Allergies provided evidence on health benefits of fungal protein. It contains essential minerals & dietary fibers and recommended its intake in its scientific opinion on dietary reference values for carbohydrates and dietary fiber.

Market participants are inducing funds in European market in order to cater rising product demand to gain superior market position. For instance, In August 2018, Lallemand Inc. announced a strategic collaboration with VERIPAN AG, a Switzerland-based food development company.  VERIPAN AG is primarily engaged in development and marketing of fermentation-derived solutions for artisan-style breads. This strategy will enable development of ready-to-use solutions & premium bakery ingredients with improved flavor based on PANATURA technology. Thus, enabling increased sales of yeast products. Therefore, these aforementioned factors should boost Europe fungal protein market statistics.

New product releases and R & D to be major business master plans by manufacturers

Global fungal proteins market is moderately consolidated with major players including Angel Yeast, Lesaffre Group, AB Mauri, DSM N.V. and Alltech.  

Participants in market are incorporating strategies including capacity expansions, mergers & acquisitions, new product launches and partnerships & collaborations.
