The Australian food acidulants market is projected to register a CAGR of 3.61% during the forecast period (2020-2025).
  • The Australian food acidulants market is driven by the growing processed food and beverage market and their consumption by the burgeoning middle-class population. Chinese players, especially in citric acid, pose a high threat for the Western players, and hence, regulatory checks on imports to create perfect competition are still in the nascent stages in several countries.
  • The key potential this industry sees is in the form of manufacturers adopting technologies to improve their production processes to meet the capacity requirements.

Key Market Trends

Phosphoric Acid Poses Great Potential in the Market

Phosphoric Acid 85% Food Grade Orthophosphoric FCC Additive Aqueous Solution is frequently used in Australian products, such as various colas and jams. The FCC grade meets the requirements of the Food Chemical Codex that indicates that it is suitable for all the food, beverage, and nutritional supplement applications. Food-grade phosphoric acid is used to acidify foods and beverages, such as various soft drinks and jams. Pure food-grade acid is used as an additive in food sauces, mayonnaise, and fruit juices and in the manufacturing of cottage and processed cheese, fats, and shortenings.

Beverages Held the Largest Market Share

Acidulants are used to prevent the growth of bacteria and fungi in the sugary drinks, making the beverages segment the largest consumer of food-grade acidulants. Citric acid, owing to its natural and abundant occurrence, has been used extensively in the beverage industry to infuse its tangy taste in the drink. However, many leading beverage companies across the world are now replacing citric acid with phosphoric acid in their product compositions, portraying an optimistic market for the ingredient. For instance, Coca-Cola incorporates phosphoric acid, which is used in its certain sparkling beverages to add tartness to the beverage.

Competitive Landscape

The market for food-grade acidulants in Australia is fragmented, owing to the presence of numerous global and regional players, such as Tate & Lyle, Archer Daniels Midland Company, and Cargill Incorporated. The market has a strong presence of players, especially from the Asia-Pacific region, with China and India holding prominent shares.
