Market Segmentation

  • In 2022, the dry segment accounted for around 35.3% market share

On the basis of the product, the global brewer’s yeast market is segmented into dry, fresh, instant dry, and liquid. The dry product segment has emerged as the dominant force in the brewer's yeast market, capturing a significant share of the overall market. Several factors contribute to the dominance of the dry product segment because the dry brewer's yeast offers various advantages over its liquid counterpart. Dry yeast has a longer shelf life and better stability, making it easier to store, transport, and use in large-scale brewing and baking operations. The extended shelf life reduces the risk of spoilage and wastage, enhancing cost-effectiveness for manufacturers and end-users. Additionally, dry yeast can be easily rehydrated and activated, providing convenience and flexibility in application. Furthermore, the dry product segment is witnessing technological advancements and innovations. The development of specialized drying techniques, such as spray drying and vacuum drying, helps preserve the nutritional properties and integrity of brewer's yeast during the drying process. This ensures that the dry product retains its high nutritional value, including protein, B-complex vitamins, and minerals, which are sought-after attributes by consumers. Another significant factor driving the dominance of the dry product segment is its versatility. Dry brewer's yeast finds applications not only in beer brewing but also in various food and beverage formulations, dietary supplements, animal feed, and pharmaceuticals. The wide range of applications and adaptability of dry brewer's yeast expands its market potential and appeal to different industries. Moreover, the growing trend of home brewing and DIY food production has fueled the demand for dry brewer's yeast.
