Natamycin Market Outlook (2022-2032)

Natamycin is seen as a crucial agent in treating fungal keratitis. It belongs to a group of antifungal medicines that effectively treat infections in the eyes. The product is also used in the prevention of molds in cheese which determines its application in the food sector.

Further, it helps in extending shelf life and limits the wastage of food. In some nations, Natamycin is regulated by the government and allowed in a significant manner to be used in cakes, loaves of bread, and beverage production. Its colorless and odorless liquid prevents fungal infections that can be used in baking food without compromising taste or texture.

Natamycin is given a preference among other preservatives because of its efficient and natural food preservation method and its ability to prevent spoilage and extend the shelf life of food products. One of the major advantages of using this preservative is that it is highly efficient since we need a very small dosage of it to kill a wide variety of molds and yeasts which has a high potential of spoiling the food.

The global Natamycin arcade is currently valued at USD 68.5 Million in 2022. The market is further expected to reach up to USD 94.77 Million by end of 2032. The market is anticipated to expand with a CAGR of 3.3% in the forecast period.

What drives demand for Natamycin?

The Natamycin industry is expected to witness substantial growth owing to its application in a wide range of areas such as pharmaceuticals for treating fungal infections, health and personal care for preserving cosmetics, animal feed, poultry, and Agriculture for the preservation of crops.

It has been declared safe by many independent food safety authorities which includes the European food safety authority also, which has increased the traction of Natamycin in the preservative industry. Collectively these reason plays a key role in fuelling the demand for this product in the near future. Chemical reactions that cause offensive sensory changes in foods are mediated by a variety of microbes that use food as a carbon and energy source.

These organisms include bacteria, yeasts, and molds. Some microbes are commonly found in many types of spoiled foods while others are more selective in the foods they consume; multiple species are often identified in a single spoiled food but there may be one species primarily responsible for the production of the compounds causing off odors and flavors. Within a spoiling food, there is often a succession of different populations that rise and fall as different nutrients become available or are exhausted.

Natamycin is produced by a pure culture of Streptomyces natalensis bacteria following a strictly controlled fermentation process. After extraction, it is centrifuged, filtered, and washed, to ensure the purity and quality of the end product.

The product helps in protecting foods through a unique mechanism that targets ergosterol in the cell wall. Ergosterol is a building block of yeasts and molds, which is responsible for intracellular nutrient transport, and therefore vital for their survival.

Nowadays consumers are more focused on natural properties such as taste, look and even the smell of their food product and Natamycin fulfills all these demands making it a very favorable preservative. The demand of consumers has shifted to natural-based products from synthetic products owing to the growth in health consciousness which subsequently increase the demand for natural preservatives. Since the consumption of alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages is at its peak, hence increasing the demand in the forecast period.

Challenges ahead of manufacturers?

The industry is regulated by rules which are stringent and hinder the manufacturers’ growth. The lack of domain expert organization in Natamycin is also affecting market expansion. There is a rising preference for alternative products such as voriconazole instead of Natamycin in the healthcare segment which may affect the demand for the product in the forecast period.
