Global Solar-Powered Microbes Market Report 2022 – Growing Application of Lactobacillus in Agribusiness –

DUBLIN–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The “Solar Powered Microbes Market – A Global and Regional Analysis: Focus on Type, End-Use Industry and Country Analysis” report has been added to from offer.

The use of solar microbes in the food and feed industry is expected to increase significantly in the near future. The demand for solar microbes from end-use industries, namely wine, bakery, dairy, and probiotics, is growing rapidly. In addition, various government policies supporting solar power-based industrial food production in developing countries are a major factor driving the growth of the market.

Market life cycle stage

The adoption of solar-powered microbes in the food and feed industry is still in the development phase. Increased research and development activities are underway to develop solar-powered microbe technology, which will increase adoption of the technology by feed, food and microbe producers.

One of the major opportunities in the solar microbe market is increasing investment in the research and development of solar microbes. In addition, solar microbes are very nutritious compared to conventional microbes.


Globally, governments are focusing more on renewable energy sources to minimize pollution and the cost structure of services and products. Solar energy is the fastest and most cost-effective source of electricity, especially in the United States. More than three million photovoltaic (PV) installations have been established in the United States, including one million in 2019.

With the cost of installing solar power systems decreasing, more and more industries are switching to green energy. This drop in costs is due to various policies and programs initiated by the country’s government, which are expected to drive the demand for solar powered microbe production in the coming years.

With increased demand for nutritious food and feedstuffs, the shift to environment-friendly production process is expected to boost the solar-powered microbe market. This implies that solar microbes can be a great alternative to conventional microbes. The transition may be more pronounced in regions of North America and Europe.

Market segmentation

End-use industry (food and feed)

The solar powered microbial market in the application segment is expected to be dominated by the food industry. This is because solar microbes are very nutritious and have the property of being customized and transformed into various products.

Type (bacteria, yeasts, molds)

The solar-powered yeast microbes segment is expected to dominate the product segment of the solar-powered microbes market. This dominance is due to the wide applications of yeast solar microbes. Yeast is consumed in a variety of end-use industries including bakery and confectionery, dairy, fruits and vegetables, beverages, and meat.


Europe is an early adopter of the solar-powered microbe market owing to the increasing advancements in research and development and supporting government regulations in the Europe region. Europe is an attractive region for the sun microbe market owing to consumer awareness of nutritious foods.

Impact of COVID-19

The outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic has delayed several solar panel installation projects. Government policies and programs have also been suspended due to significant restrictions. In 2020, the pandemic has shown a decline in solar investments and the postponement and cancellation of major panel installations.

However, the growth of nutritious food products has increased due to the pandemic as end consumers have started to demand healthy products to boost their immunity. Thus, the demand for solar-powered microbes will further increase in the near future.

Recent Developments in the Solar Powered Microbes Market
