Nisin Market

The Global Nisin Market is driven by growing demand for natural food preservatives

Nisin is a polycyclic antibacterial peptide produced by some strains of the lactic acid bacterium Lactococcus lactis. It is widely used as a natural preservative in various food products such as dairy products, meat, seafood, beverages and others due to its effectiveness against gram-positive bacteria. Nisin kills bacteria by forming complexes with lipid II, a molecule involved in bacterial cell wall biosynthesis. This mechanism of action makes nisin effective even against bacteria resistant to other antibiotics.

The global food industry is witnessing rapid growth in demand for natural and clean label preservatives to replace artificial chemical preservatives. Nisin being a naturally produced peptide fits well as a clean label preservative option. It is popular among health conscious consumers who prefer minimal processed foods with a cleaner label. Nisin helps increase the shelf life of foods without compromising on their freshness and nutritional quality. The growing demand for convenience and extended shelf life foods is also driving its use in product formulations.

The global Nisin Market is estimated to be valued at US$ 203.59 Mn in 2023 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 5.5% over the forecast period 2024 to 2031, as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.
