Busy Lifestyle Promoting Popularity of Ready-to-eat Foods Proves A Boon for Market

Foremost demand driver in the global calcium propionate market is the increasingly hectic schedules of people. This has left them with little time to cook elaborate meals in their kitchens thus leading to surging demand for ready-to-eat foods, canned foods, and preserved foods. All such kinds of food require preservatives such as calcium propionate to prolong their shelf lives. The lead analyst of our report explains in details, “Calcium propionate is a useful anti-microbial preservative and is a great solution to the increasing concerns for food-borne illnesses.”

Thus calcium propionate is being used in various areas such as dairy, animal feed, meat processing, packaged food products, beverages, grain protection, and plant pesticides apart from bakery products. Besides, the lesser manufacturing cost is also helping to boost the market.

Rising Awareness of Fresh Foods Poses Challenge to Growth

Despite its numerous uses, the global calcium propionate market is running into headwinds owing to the surging demand for fresh foods sans additives and preservatives. This is because of the rising tribe of health conscious consumers and advice by doctors to consume fresh healthy stuff for good health. Despite such hiccups, the global calcium propionate market is predicted to grow because of its preference over sodium propionate.

A noticeable trend in the global calcium propionate market is the shifting of gaze towards the under tapped and high growth Asia Pacific market by keen players. This would help them overcome the challenge of sluggish sales in saturated advanced markets.
