The functional properties of meat starter cultures and their benefits while incorporation in a wide range of applications are driving the global meat starter cultures market.
By microorganism, the bacteria is projected to account for the largest share in the meat starter cultures market during the forecast period
Based on microorganism, bacteria dominated the market. Starter cultures are used to initiate the fermentation of meat products such as sausages, salami, and dry-cured meat. There are two types of microorganisms that are mainly used as meat starter cultures, namely, bacteria and fungi. Bacteria-based starter cultures are that are majorly used in the industry include lactic acid bacteria (LAB) and coagulase-negative staphylococci (CNS). These are the dominant microorganisms that are used in meat products to prohibit pathogens and spoilage microorganisms during the pre-and post-processing of meat products.
By application, sausages segment is projected to account for the largest share in the meat starter cultures market during the forecast period
By application, the market is segmented into sausages, salami, dry-cured meat, and others (such as pepperoni and other processed meat products). The meat sausages segment, akin to most other non-processed fresh meats and meat preparations, comprises perishable food products, and most sausage manufacturers have been looking for additional safety or longer shelf life, either in terms of less spoilage or delayed oxidation. Meat starter cultures are used to provide additional safety and delay spoilage by shifting the uncontrolled fermentation that spoils the meat to a controlled fermentation by safe bacteria. Meat starter cultures ferment the sausages and preserve their flavor, texture, color, and increase their shelf-life by averting wastage.
The European region dominated the meat starter culture market with the largest share in 2019.
The meat starter cultures market in Europe is dominant due to the increasing demand for processed meat products with higher shelf-life because of a shift in lifestyle trends. People are looking for ready-to-cook meal options as they are leading a busy life. The consumption of sausage has been prominent in these countries, resulting in a rise in demand for meat starter cultures for their production. The leading companies dominating the meat starter cultures market include Chr. Hansen (Denmark), Kerry Group (Ireland), and DSM (Netherlands); have a robust presence in Europe due to higher demand for packaged meat in these regions.
