The demand for dairy products continues to rise in key markets like the US, and China, thanks to increasing per capital consumption, and expansion of dairy products with innovation. This has led to a growing demand for dairy starter culture, which is essential for dairy based foods, also for various meats, sea food, as well. The rising demand for starter culture is expected to grow as consumer patterns continue to shift in key markets, with a growing preference of natural products. Due to factors like limited supply of land, and increasing costs associated with completely natural products, the demand for starter culture will remain high for processed food, organic food, and beverages in the near future. Moreover, the growing per capital consumption has led to increased awareness about benefits of starter culture among manufacturers. This has led to a steady, and stable growth of the starter culture in recent years.
Strong Conventional Demand for Starter Culture Remains an Attractive Draw for Growth
Starter culture have been applied in production of dairy since the beginning. However, in recent times, the starter culture has expanded to manufacturing of various products including cheese, yogurt, kefir, butter, among others. Moreover, retail chains, and their demand for additional shelf life remains a key factor for growth in the dairy starter culture market. The dairy starter culture products drop the level of pH in dairy products, during bacteria fermentation of lactic acid. Apart from acting as a preservative, this also adds various nutritional, and digestible qualities to milk products. Government agencies like FDA have already acknowledged that a significant portion of the American population is facing issues with milk digestion. This remains a key driver for growth in the dairy starter culture market.
Expansion of High-End Storage Facilities Will Shift Dynamics Towards Highly-Concentrated Starters
The highly concentrated culture bacteria have driven strong growth for the dairy starter culture market. These are easy to mix for local dairies, and make way for easy management of fermentation process. Moreover, these provide high-quality fermentation process, with high degree of preservation benefits for end-players.Furthermore, these are also easy to monitor, and enable producers to plan the manufacturing process in advance. However, despite their major benefits, these remain susceptible to temperature changes, and remained an expensive liability, thanks to limited expansion of storage facilities in developing countries. However, growth of cold storage supply chains, and emergence of super chain stores will remain a key driver for growth, as rising disposable income, and growing demand for dairy products in emerging countries like India, and China promise to make way for substantial growth. Additionally, the growing urbanization, and low-cost benefits of nuclear-powered energy in developed countries will also make way for tremendous expansion in food storage facilities to cater to growing demand for dairy products. Their ideal commercial application remains key to growth, as manufacturers, and suppliers find new ways to deliver better returns to consumer, and food processing continues to become more innovative to meet demand for new dairy products. Rising urbanization, and limited scope for bacterial fermentation will also provide new opportunities for growth for players in the dairy starter culture market.
Some key players in the dairy starter culture market are New England Cheesemaking Supply Company, DSM Food Specialties B.V, Chr. Hansen, and DuPont Danisco®.
