The European market for food emulsifiers is projected to register an estimated CAGR of 4.5% during the forecast period, 2018-2023. The trend for natural emulsifiers offers huge potential in the emulsifier market, like beeswax, lanolin, lecithin, and saponin. Notably, the important parameter is that the system attains natural certification from a renowned body, such as Ecocert.
Expanding Processed Food Market Boosting Market Growth
A rapidly rising population and greater levels of urbanization, globally, have boosted demand for processed food products, thus driving the demand for food ingredients. Food emulsifier manufacturers are observing an increased demand from food manufacturers to preserve the freshness, safety, taste, appearance, and texture of processed foods. All food emulsifiers are required to be approved by the appropriate authorities, and organizations must ensure strict limits on added amounts and types of emulsifiers in processed foods.
The major challenges in the food emulsifier market are the increasing usage of alternatives, like enzymes, which have similar stabilizing properties and regulatory obligations that penalize unhealthy diets, and the demand for clean label specifying the additives used.
Wide Range of Applications of Emulsifiers in the Food & Beverage Industry
By product type, major food manufacturers use lecithin, as it is considered to be non-toxic to humans, and easily enhances the color, flavor, texture, and shelf life of products.
Food emulsifiers are used in various food applications, which include functional foods, bakery and confectionary (accounting for the maximum share in usage of emulsifiers), dairy products, convenience foods, and meat products. The growing importance of convenience is driving the food choice, which in turn, is driving the demand for convenience food, globally. However, as the consumer perspective is changing from ‘food-related convenience’ to product specifications, manufacturers depend at emulsifiers for providing the lower fat content percentage, while maintaining sensory characteristics, like texture, flavor, and taste in convenience foods.
Existing Awareness of Emulsifiers affecting Market Dynamics in the European Market
