The global market for microbial-derived fiber is poised for remarkable growth, with a projected impressive compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 9.8%. By the year 2033, it is expected to reach a valuation of US$ 62.33 million, a significant increase from its 2023 value of US$ 24.47 million.
Microbial-derived fiber, a type of dietary fiber, is the product of specific bacteria fermentation. It is generated as these microorganisms, commonly bacteria or yeasts, break down complex carbohydrates during their metabolic processes. Unlike conventional dietary fibers found in plant-based foods like fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and legumes, microbial fibers are distinct. The former is derived from the structural components of plants, while the latter results from the metabolic activity of microorganisms.

“Growing awareness of the importance of gut health has provided a favorable climate for the demand growth of microbial-derived fibers. More customers are looking for items that promote gut health, and the food industry is responding by adding these fibers into functional foods and beverages. Consequently, microbial-derived fibers are becoming more popular as part of a broader emphasis on gut health and overall well-being,” says a Fact.MR analyst.
Consumers nowadays are looking for food and beverage products that provide health benefits in addition to basic nourishment. Microbial-derived fibers are considered natural and useful additives, with benefits such as increased dietary fiber, enhanced texture, and lower fat and sugar content. These fibers are derived from natural sources, frequently through fermentation methods, which appeals to consumers who seek products with clean labels and minimal processing. The need for healthier and more natural options in the food and beverage industry is driving market expansion.
Advancements in fermentation technology have also played a significant role in the expansion of the global market. The development of effective and scalable fermentation techniques has made it easier to create microbial-derived fibers on a commercial scale. This has resulted in improved availability and cost-effectiveness of these fibers, making them more accessible to food manufacturers. Furthermore, fermentation technology allows for the modification and development of fiber properties, allowing for the production of fibers with specific functionalities and benefits. The use of fermentation technology has broadened the possibilities for microbial-derived fibers, boosting the market growth.
Key players in the microbial-derived fiber market are actively pursuing inorganic tactics such as collaborations, acquisitions, investments, and R&D activities to grow and solidify their market presence.
