It functions as an antimicrobial agent to kill microorganisms such as viruses, bacteria, algae, and fungi. As a result, its demand on the market is growing, thus triggering the market growth.

Calcium Propionate Market Report Coverage

The report: “Calcium Propionate Market- Forecast (2022-2027)” covers an in-depth analysis of the following segments of the Calcium Propionate Industry.
  • By Form: Dry and Liquid.
  • By Application: Food (Bakery Products, Dairy & Frozen Desserts, Meat, Fish, and Seafood Products, and others), Feed, Pharmaceuticals, Cosmetics and others.
  • By Geography: North America, South America, Europe, APAC, and RoW.

Key Takeaways

  • North America dominated the global calcium propionate market owning to established food manufacturing facilities and high fresh food demand. Europe was followed by North America due to high consumption level and stringent food regulations by REACH.

-Strict food safety and shelf life legislation and regulations have made it difficult for the food and feed processing industries to obtain the correct ingredient formulation along with preservatives without affecting the quality of the product, which acts as a major restriction on the demand for calcium propionate

  • Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, most of the countries have gone under lockdown, due to which operations of various industries have been negatively affected, which is hampering the Calcium Propionate market growth.

Calcium Propionate Market Segment Analysis - By Form

The dry segment held the largest share in the calcium propionate in 2019. The growth of dry calcium propionate is due to several factors such as ease of mixing and better dispersion in the food matrix. In addition, dry calcium propionate does not affect the leavening action of baking powder in bakery products. Thus, due to greater dispersion in the food matrix, the dry form has a longer shelf life and enhances the flavor. Therefore, owning to these factors the dry segment dominating the calcium propionate market, and this trend is expected to continue during the forecast period.

Calcium Propionate Market Segment Analysis - By Application

The food segment held the largest share in the calcium propionate market in 2019 and is growing at a CAGR of XX%. Calcium propionate acts as an antimicrobial agent and it is used as a preservative in a wide variety of products. By reducing the growth of bacteria and fungi, it helps to increase the shelf life of food. It is highly used in bread in the food industry. In addition, calcium propionate is cost-effective and relatively less toxic as compared to other substitutes such as sorbates and sulfites, which further drive the market growth. The preference for natural food additives over synthetic ones to eliminate health concerns also increases the demand for calcium propionate. The food industry has begun using natural calcium propionate to make it as safe to consume as organic calcium salt of propionic acid, which is produced by fermentation with a selected strain of propionibacterium. Therefore, these factors are driving calcium propionate demand.

Calcium Propionate Market Segment Analysis - By Geography

The North America held the largest share in the calcium propionate market up to 30% and is expected to maintain its dominance during the forecast period. Rising consumption of ready-to-eat food products and increasing demand for packaged products are key factors driving the growth of the calcium propionate market in the region. Countries such as the United States and Canada are the key contributors to this regional market due to the high production and consumption of bakery and rush hour food items such as noodles and pasta. Growing demand for convenience and refined food encourages manufacturers to use calcium propionate to increase the shelf life of food items. The Asia Pacific also held a significant share in the calcium propionate market. The consumption is driven by rapid urbanization, economic growth, and a rise in the purchasing power of the middle-class population, leading to increased bakery & convenience food purchases in the region. The region is an emerging market for calcium propionate, owning to the increased awareness about calcium propionate and the benefits offered, and increasing demand for fresh products.

Calcium Propionate Market Drivers

Increasing health concerns of consumers are driving the market for calcium propionates

In recent years, consumers have become aware of the importance of health and, with an increasing demand for nutritional products, the market for calcium propionate is expected to grow at an exponential rate. Consumers have started preferring natural and organic food over synthetic food, which has contributed to a rise in demand for calcium propionate. Calcium propionate has been used as a natural ingredient in the food industry since it is safe to consume. In addition, the food industry uses advanced technologies such as MAP, bacteriophages, and various preservation techniques to ensure the quality and protection of food. Furthermore, calcium propionate is used as feed for animals and, as a result of growing applications in the food preservation field, it stimulates the growth of the industry. In addition to the different uses of calcium propionate, it is very cost-effective compared to other alternatives such as sorbates, sulphites, etc. That is why the calcium propionate market is growing exponentially. Apart from baked goods, it is used as a food additive in wines, vinegar, soya sauce, and others. It also prevents cows from milk fever and offers nutritional supplements for dogs, cattle, and horses. The agricultural uses of the compound include its use as a pesticide and fungicide. It is also used as a leavening agent to delay fermentation in bakery products. It exhibits an anti-microbial nature, which makes it valuable for the pharmaceutical and cosmetics industries. Therefore, these factors are driving calcium propionate market growth.

Calcium Propionate Market Challenges

Stringent regulations are a major restraint

Strong legislation and regulations with regard to food safety and shelf life have ensured that the manufacturing industries are keen to have the right formulation to present the best food commodity to the customer, and in this respect, preservatives play a pivotal role. For approved applications and dosage amounts, local and regional regulations need to be reviewed. It is expected that the stringent quality and food safety regulations will impede the global demand for calcium propionate. For instance, in the U.S, propionic acid and propionate use levels are 0.1 percent to 0.4 percent. The addition of calcium propionate to a food product increases the pH by approximately 0.1 to 0.5 pH units, depending on the amount, pH, and form of product, according to federal regulations. Federal regulations also restrict the maximum amount for flour, white bread, and rolls to 0.32 percent based on the weight of the flour; 0.38 percent based on the weight of the flour for whole wheat products; and 0.3 percent for cheese products. Such strict monitoring and legislation limit the growth of the market.
