The malt extracts and ingredients market is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 4.48% to reach a market size of US$39.916 billion in 2027 from US$29.380 billion in 2020.  

Increasing usage of malt extract in beer by brewing bubs and breweries is surging due to the cost savings and time savings leading to market growth.

Beer breweries and brewpubs are increasing worldwide owing to the rising consumption of craft beer. The production of beer involves many extensive and intricate processes that need to be met and requires the employment of a skilled workforce and proper quality control techniques. Thus, it is pushing the homebrewers to switch to using malt extracts due to the lack of proper equipment and encouraging the breweries and brewpubs to adopt them to achieve costs and time savings. In addition, malt beverages such as non-alcoholic beer, among some other malt-based beverages, which are available in exciting flavours, appeal to teenagers and are gaining traction among the adolescent population, leading to an increase in the demand for malt extracts and ingredients and boosting the market growth.

The increasing consumption of beer and malt beverages among the younger and middle-aged population is leading to a surge in demand for malt extracts among alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverage manufacturers.

The consumption of beer is augmenting among the young and middle-aged population, which is attributable to the increasing propensity to spend on recreational beverages facilitated by the increase in disposable incomes. According to the statistics provided by the Beer Institute in 2018, the U.S. beer industry sells beer and other malt-based beverages, amounting to about $119.3 billion to consumers yearly. According to the Tax and Trade Bureau and U.S. Commerce Department data, around 82% of beer was domestically produced, and the remaining 18% of beer was imported from 100 different countries around the world in 2018. In addition, according to the NBWA Industry Affairs, U.S. consumers above 21 years of age and considered to be of legal drinking age consumed about 26.5 gallons of beer and cider per person in 2018, based on the beer shipment data and U.S. Census population statistics. This steady increase in beer production and consumption among the individuals in the population is leading to a surge in demand for malt extracts so that beer producers can maximize their profits by streamlining their operations and increasing efficiency to gain a competitive edge over their rivals. Thus, leading to a surge in market growth.

The use of malt extracts, Nutraceuticals, and pharmaceuticals to show growth over the forecast period

The awareness among individuals is rising and encouraging them to shift their preference toward healthier foods and move away from sedentary lifestyles. They have started consuming foods and beverages such as nutraceuticals and dietary supplements loaded with malt extracts, as they can provide various health benefits. These include promoting athletic recovery (which is essential for increasing performance levels), supporting digestive health (as it is rich in fibers and helps in improving digestion), and promoting heart health (by reducing the risk of heart problems by lowering cholesterol levels), among other health benefits. In addition, Nestle, one of the leading companies dealing in providing food and beverage products globally, offers new and improved cocoa-malt beverage products called “Milo.” It has been powered with the ACTIV-GO formula, which contains PROMALT, a unique type of malt extract that has been specifically designed and developed using a combination of 9 essential micronutrients (vitamins B2, B3, B6, B12, C, D) and some other essential minerals.

Thus, the use of malt extracts in nutraceuticals and pharmaceuticals is poised to show considerable growth over the forecast period.

The Asia Pacific region, followed by the North American region, holds a noteworthy share over the forecast period

The North American region is expected to hold a significant share over the forecast period because the number of individuals consuming non-alcoholic malt beverages and the total beer consumption is increasing the countries such as the U.S. In conjunction, there are standards and strict guidelines regarding the CFR (Code of Federal Regulations).

In addition, the Asia Pacific region is expected to hold a noteworthy share over the forecast period since there are proper standards and guidelines in place. The standards in place by the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS), namely BIS IS 204:1993, have been accepted by the FSSAI.  In conjunction, market players are involved in promoting and providing their products with proper quality assurance and compliance in different flavours. For instance, Barmalt Malting India Pvt. Ltd., one of the manufacturers and distributors of malt extracts and malt products in India, guarantees that their products correspond to the Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points certification and ISO 9001:2008 criteria. To meet the needs of the consumers, Mahalaxmi, one of the businesses involved in the supply of malt extracts and malt products in India, offers three different types of malt extracts in liquid or powder form hues light cream, cream yellow, and light brown.

Younger and middle-aged people are becoming more and more accustomed to purchasing and using bakery products.

Bakery products are getting increasingly popular and consumed more among the younger population and middle-aged population

Bakery products are getting increasingly popular and consumed in European countries such as Germany, France, and the UK, partly attributed to the increasing disposable incomes. This is causing the market players to offer bakery products with added flavor, textures, and essential benefits by using malt extract ingredients. For example, it offers a gluten-free barley malt extract in liquid form for use in bakery applications.

COVID-19 Impact on Malt Extracts and Ingredients Market

The market for malt extracts has been significantly impacted by COVID-19. Because of the outbreak's lockdown and production interruptions, malt grains were kept untreated for months after harvest. Both the malt extract industry and the farmers suffered enormous losses as a result. For instance, post-harvest losses of all food grains, including malt grains, were high in India, one of the major producers of malt grains like barley, wheat, and corn. India is one of the largest suppliers of malt, hence the countries that depended on India for the supply of malt were affected by the losses suffered by farmers during the lockdown. With fewer brewing activities and decreased beer consumption, the demand from the brewing industry dramatically decreased on the supply side. The shutdown of bars and pubs, which serve a significant portion of the world's beer consumers, was caused by the lockdowns implemented in all nations. Nearly half of the beer consumed in Europe is consumed in bars and pubs, so the closure of these establishments slowed down the growth of the market.
