Many Advantages of Food Emulsifiers Brought to Focus by Producers

Big Numbers for Convenience Foods in Southeast Asia
“The number one driver for the Southeast Asia food emulsifier market at the moment is the staggering demand for convenience foods in nearly all countries in this region. Busy lifestyles, entrance of several popular international food and beverage names, and the increasing appeal of convenience and ready-to-eat foods is creating a very high growth rate for associated food product manufacturers. But at the same time, the people are becoming increasingly health conscious and are aware of the consequences of overconsumption of unhealthy and fattening foods. This is creating a unique window for the manufacturers of food emulsifiers in this region,” states a TMR analyst.
Government Regulations Continue to Hamper Food Emulsifier Production Rates
One of the key factors holding the Southeast Asia food emulsifier market back is the highly stringent regulatory framework surrounding several countries from this region, for the food and beverage industry. The regulations in Singapore and Thailand, for instance, prohibit the manufacturers from using several key ingredients necessary to make conventional food emulsifiers. As a result, they have to resort to other methods, the production of which can become more expensive. Added to the national regulatory framework is the influence of regulations from export nations, such as the U.S. FDA. Trade countries have their own set of regulations that players from the Southeast Asia food emulsifier market when it comes to exports.
“Countries such as Thailand and Vietnam are in focus for key players in the Southeast Asia food emulsifier market. These are the emergent economies that are showing a highly positive potential for securing a growing demand chain for manufacturers. Vietnam has especially made sound development in expanding its demand for food emulsifiers over the recent past and is likely to continue showing a promising growth rate for the coming years. Thailand on the other hand is relatively untapped and provides a major source of opportunities should the demand for convenience foods in this region increase,” adds the analyst.
