January 10, 2017 – Growing Need to Improve Stability, Consistency & Shelf-Life of Food & Non-Food Products to Drive the Emulsifiers Market, According to a New Report by Global Industry Analysts, Inc.

GIA launches comprehensive analysis of industry segments, trends, growth drivers, market share, size and demand forecasts on the global Emulsifiers market. The global Emulsifiers market is projected to reach 3.2 million metric tons by 2022, driven by the growing demand for functional ingredients with the ability to improve stability, texture, consistency and shelf life of food and non-food products.

Emulsifier, a surface-active agent that promotes formation and stabilization of an emulsion for ensuring the product’s uniformity, is used in a wide range of food and beverage applications, and also plays a critical role in the production of cosmetics, detergents, and pharmaceuticals. Driven by high growth in major end-use application markets such as food, personal care and cosmetics, the global emulsifiers market is experiencing strong growth. The recent years have witnessed a steady increase in adoption of natural emulsifiers, particularly in food and pharmaceutical industry, due to their perceived health benefits. The food & beverage industry is the most prominent end-use market for emulsifiers, with a wide range of processed foods such as bakery foods, meat and dairy products, convenience foods and confectionery using emulsifiers to impart good taste, improve the texture and consistency, and enhance shelf life of food products. Driven by the rapidly growing consumption of processed and packaged foods, particularly in developed economies of Asia-Pacific, Latin America and the Middle East, the market is positioned for rapid growth in the coming years. Positive economic environment, rising disposable income, and changing food habits represent macro trends that are influencing consumption of packaged and convenience foods.

The rising wave of low fat foods also ranks as a major growth driver of emulsifiers in the food industry. Technological advancements are additionally ensuring wider adoption of emulsifiers in food processing. The development of innovative emulsifier solution for gluten reduction is spurring use in the production of bakery foods, which of late have been coming under scrutiny for high gluten content. In the pharmaceutical industry, emulsifiers are used primarily in the form of microemulsions and are gaining importance as critical ingredients in the manufacture of a variety of personal care and cosmetic products including personal hygiene products, creams and lotions, and makeup products, among others.

As stated by the new market research report on Emulsifiers, Europe represents the largest market, worldwide followed by North America, supported by the fact that these regions are home to some for the world’s leading food companies focused on offering high-quality and low-fat food products. Europe is experiencing strong increase in demand for functional ingredients with flavoring and emulsifying properties as well as for additives that can extend shelf-life. Asia-Pacific ranks as the fastest growing market with a CAGR of 9.5% over the analysis period, led by fast-paced economic growth; westernization of food habits; and increased spending on medicines, cosmetics and personal care products by the growing base of middle class population.

Lecithins represent the largest segment in the global emulsifiers market given the natural characteristic of lecithin and its invaluable role in the production of nutritional supplements, food, cosmetics, and feed. A promising area of growth for lecithins is from the nutritional supplements market which is being driven by rising awareness over the importance of health maintenance and subsequent increase in consumption of high-quality functional foods and micronutrients.
