The intense rivalry between players, such as Cargill Inc., Archer-Daniels-Midlands Co., Ajinomoto Co., Associated British Foods Plc., BASF, and DSM Nutritional Products AG, defines the competitive landscape of the global food emulsifier market, finds a study by Transparency Market Research (TMR). With a large number of participants, the market demonstrates a highly fragmented structure.
Hitherto, these players were concentrating on product innovation to meet the expectation of consumers. However, a shift in their focus towards strategic alliances, mergers, and acquisitions can be seen in order to enhance their visibility in the global market over the forthcoming years.
As per TMR, the global market for food emulsifiers offered an opportunity worth US$3.3 bn in 2015. Supported by the growing demand for convenience and packaged food products, the market is likely to report a rise at a CAGR of 4.0% between 2015 and 2021 and reach a value of US$4.2 bn by the end of the forecast period. Mono, di-glycerides, and derivatives have emerged as the most valued product in this market. The segment is likely to continue is leading streak in the near future with sales crossing US$1.8 bn by 2021.
Food Emulsifier Sales to Cross US$1.5 bn in Asia Pacific
According to the research report, Asia Pacific has surfaced as the most lucrative market for food emulsifiers across the world. The presence of highly populous countries, coupled with the increasing preference of consumers for packaged and convenience food, is driving the consumption of food emulsifiers in this region significantly. Analysts project Asia Pacific to remain the leading regional market for food emulsifiers in the coming years with revenue reaching US$1.5 bn by 2020.
Europe has also been a key contributor to the global market for food emulsifiers. The emergence of France and Germany as the leading manufacturers of food emulsifiers is likely to strengthen the position of this region in the global market over the next few years, notes the research study.
Growing Preference for Packaged Food in Emerging Economies to Reflect Positively on Global Food Emulsifier Sales
“The growing preference for packaged food in emerging economies, on account of the busy lifestyle of consumers and the rising influence of western culture, has reflected significantly on the sales of food emulsifiers across the world,” says a researcher at TMR. Of late, China, Japan, and Brazil have exhibited a robust rise in the demand for food emulsifiers and the trend is likely to remain so over the next few years, supporting the market’s growth.
Apart from this, the increasing usage of food emulsifiers in bakery products and ice-creams is also expected to impact the market positively in the years to come, states the research report.
Stringent Government Norms Regarding Usage of Food Additive to Affect Food Emulsifiers’ Demand
Although the growth prospects of the worldwide market for food emulsifiers are bright, the enforcement of stringent government regulations, standardizing the usage of food additives, may decelerate the growth of this market over the forecast period. Besides, the introduction of low-priced products by participants, in a bid to withstand the intense competition, will impact the market profit considerably, affecting the overall market in the coming years, reports the study.
