COVID-19 Pandemic Adversely Affects Autolyzed Yeast Demand, Dents Overall Market Growth
The autolyzed yeast market seemed to be heading towards a promising future, but the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic negatively impacted the growth in the global market.
With food manufacturing facilities either closing down temporarily or permanently, the demand for autolyzed yeasts witnessed a decline. This adversely impacted the overall market.

While autolyzed yeasts have been used in an extensive range of industries, they have their drawbacks, too, which could impact product demand in future.
Presence of Gluten, Monosodium Glutamate in Autolyzed Yeasts Could Impact Product Demand in Future
Autolyzed yeasts have been found to contain gluten and so for consumers who are on a gluten-free diet, products that contain autolyzed yeasts would not be suited for purchase and consumption, which could, in turn, affect the autolyzed yeast market.
Autolyzed yeast also contained monosodium glutamate. Products with monosodium glutamate have been found to develop side effects in human beings, some of which include headache, chest pain, numbness, and sweating. This could negatively impact product demand and also have an effect on the autolyzed yeast market.
The global autolyzed yeast market is extremely competitive, with the presence of several well-established market players. Many of these players are expected to hold a large share in the overall market, in the upcoming years.
Growth strategies such as novel product launches could help leading players gain a competitive edge over the other market players.
