The top three revenue-generating application segments in the global malt ingredients market are discussed below:

Alcoholic beverages sector

The alcoholic beverages segment occupied a vast majority of the global malt ingredients market, holding over 85% of the overall shares. The rising use of malt ingredients in alcoholic beverages such as beer and whiskey is the factor driving the dominance of the market segment,” says Manjunath Reddy, a lead analyst at Technavio for alcoholic beverages research.

The increased alcohol consumption worldwide, especially in emerging nations, will likely be the single-most important factor boosting the market growth. Western markets, mainly in Europe, have traditionally been the largest consumers of alcoholic beverages, with APAC and Latin America displaying the strongest growth potential. Manufacturers need to pay close attention to these factors to capitalize on the growing demand from these regions.

Non-alcoholic beverages sector

The non-alcoholic beverages sector of the malt ingredients market is expected to grow faster than the other segments, with a projected CAGR of more than 7%. Malt ingredients are used widely in light malt-based non-alcoholic soft drinks, non-alcoholic beers, and malt-based hot drinks. The malt-based compound does not require any special expertise or technology for brewing and are quite popular in markets where the demand for alcohol-free beverages that have the taste and flavor of beer is high.

Food sector

The food sector occupies a small but important portion of the malt ingredients market, where it is used as a natural source of flavor, sweetness, and color, while acting as a humectant. Malt ingredients are used in various baked products, breakfast cereals, cookies, saltine crackers, and related products,” says Manjunath.

The growing demand for malt ingredients from the food sector due to the rise in consumer preference for packaged and convenience foods is expected to have a positive impact on the global malt ingredients market during the forecast period. Also, increasing health-consciousness has resulted in consumers avoiding food products that have chemicals and artificial elements, thereby positively influencing the demand for malt ingredients.
