Mycelium Market Outlook (2022-2032)

Mycelium is the vegetative part of fungus which consists of branch mass and hyphae, which is a thread-like structure. These are the fungal colonies found in soil and within many other substrates. The increasing demand for natural ingredients and flavors in the food industry is likely to surge the demand for mycelium, which in turn will boost the overall market. Huge investments are made in attractive technology solutions for the fast production of flavored mycelium, instead of fermentation through the traditional, time-consuming, and labor-intensive methods.

Mycelium is a fungi-like organism that serves many benefits to the whole ecosystem. The mycelium can be found in single-celled as well as multiple-celled organisms like yeast and mushrooms. This plays an essential role in the decomposition process. Mycelium is a source of food for various herbivorous mammals and constitutes a large part of their diet. Mycelium and its by-products are used to produce leather which is used to manufacture many products.

The worldwide mycelium arcade is valued at USD 2.76 Billion in 2022. The market is expected to surpass the valuation of USD 5.85 Billion by end of 2032. The arcade is likely to expand with a CAGR of 7.80% in the forecast duration.

What driving market growth in mycelium?

The rapidly growing urbanization and increasing awareness among consumers about health and well-being increase the demand for natural flavors such as mycelium, which in turn surges the overall volume of demand in the global market. The incorporation of more flavors to enhance the palatability of the food enhances the market for mycelium globally.

The increasing emphasis provided on the unique taste in processed food and beverages is the major factor that drives the global mycelium market. Furthermore, the rising inclination towards organic and natural ingredients and flavors in food products is also likely to infuse the global market for this product. The increasing demand for extended shelf life for foods is another attribute of mycelium, which contributes to the surge in the global mycelium market.

What restraints the growth of the mycelium market?

The major concern hindering the mycelium arcade is its usage as a construction material for the reason it cants support much weight. This is used in concrete and insulation material for walls. With time the mycelium loses its resistance to water and may be subject to humidity. Additionally, mycelium is not readily available in the abandoned amount which may deter the demand-supply of product in the forecast period. The loss of strength after long exposure to moisture may hinder the usage of mycelium in packaging applications.
