Naperville, IL -- (SBWIRE) -- 06/20/2014 -- Reportstack, provider of premium market research reports announces the addition of China Yeast Industry Report,2014-2017 market report to its offering
During 2004-2013, China saw a continuous rise in yeast output, with a CAGR of 10.7%. Yeast is used mainly in bakery food, wine brewage, feed and other fields.
Given the fact that the demand for bakery food, wine brewing and feed continues to grow, we project that in 2014-2017 the demand for yeast from the said industries will present a steady growth. Additionally, as people pay much more attention to food safety, Yeast extracts will become the driving force in raising the yeast demand. However, restricted by the raw material supply, China's yeast output will grow by a small margin, with an estimated CAGR of around 4%.
Like the global market, China's yeast industry is dominated by oligarch companies, such as Angel Yeast, AB Mauri, Lesaffre and Biosunkeen. And the total capacity of the four yeast manufacturers accounted for more than 80% of the national total in China. As of May 2014, Angel Yeast had a capacity of 160 kt of Yeast and 41 kt of yeast extract, making it the largest supplier in China. AB MAURI owned a capacity of more than 50 kt of yeast in China, LESAFFRE close to 30kt of yeast and Biosunkeen approximately 20kt.
In China, molasses is used as the main raw materials to produce yeast. Between 2008 and 2013, the output of molasses in China approximated 4 million tons. But at present, molasses is primarily used to produce alcohol, as yeast manufacturers are limited, to a greater or lesser degree, by raw materials. To break this barrier, some enterprises, based on their own industry characteristics, use other raw materials as culture medium. For example, Biosunkeen chooses sweet potato sugar waste to produce yeast.
