Precision fermentation plays a key role in the transition to a circular economy by upcycling waste streams and by products into value-added products. Precision fermentation enables the production of plant-based proteins, such as soy, pea, and mycoprotein, as well as cell-based meats and seafood, offering sustainable and animal-free alternatives to traditional animal agriculture.

“Microbial fermentation allows for the production of novel flavours, fragrances, and aroma compounds that mimic natural ingredients or create entirely new sensory experiences. This trend is driving innovation in the food, beverage, and fragrance industries, enabling the development of unique and customizable products,” says the analyst.

Growing consumer awareness of sustainability, health, and ethical considerations is driving demand for products produced through precision fermentation. Consumers are increasingly seeking out sustainable and ethically sourced products, driving market demand for precision fermentation-derived ingredients and products.
