Market Outlook for Malt Vinegar Market
Malt vinegar is an English vinegar, generally used as a condiment, manufactured by double fermentation of malted barley. Malt vinegar is commonly used in the preparation of English snacks and cuisines, especially fish and chips. Malt vinegar is available in two forms - distilled and not distilled, which lends a white or brown color to it. Malt vinegar has been used since traditional times and the market is quite saturated. However, the malt vinegar market is still expected to grow owing to different marketing strategies adopted by the manufacturers and rigorous efforts being made to save its declining position within the vinegar industry. In 2016, the company Sarson’s, a major producer of malt vinegar, launched an advertising campaign, which focuses on promoting recipes that use malt vinegar as an essential ingredient. The malt vinegar market is in an extremely threatened position due to the increasing number of consumers switching over to balsamic vinegar.
Reasons for Covering this Title
There are a variety of factors which are responsible for the current unstable position of the malt vinegar market, which is why the market is exhibiting a declining trend in terms of consumption. One of the several threats is that malt vinegar has very limited usage in the food industry. It is used in pickling and salad dressings, while its competing vinegar has a wide range of applications in the food industry. Also, the major end use sector driving the growth of the malt vinegar market is the fish and chips snack. However, declining popularity of fish and chips has led to a decline in the popularity of malt vinegar. The major setback for the malt vinegar market is evaluated to be the growth of the balsamic vinegar market. Balsamic vinegar has become trendier and more number of foodservice providers are promoting it which has led to a greater consumer penetration, as compared to malt vinegar.
