Follow us on LinkedIn – Fueled by growth in the food and beverage industry, demand for food additives is expected to register significant growth in the coming years. Spurred by the growing focus on natural products, naturally-derived food additives witnessed immense popularity over the last few years. Strong demand for processed foods also benefitted demand for customized food additive solutions. The market is currently being buoyed by growing consumer preference for healthier, low-calorie, and low-fat foods. The need to reduce fat and calorie content in packaged food is encouraging R&D investments in food additives. Technological innovations such as improvements in color and flavor extraction and advances in enzyme engineering are expected to play a major role in developing advanced and novel food additives.
As stated by the new market research report on Food Additives, Europe represents the largest regional market worldwide. Despite the prevailing economic uncertainties, growth in Europe is led by Germany, the UK, France, and Italy. Asia-Pacific and Latin America are forecast to spearhead growth in the global market led by changing lifestyles, evolving food habits, and the resulting rise in demand for processed food and beverage products. Lured by the region’s favorable growth prospects, several producers have established operations to benefit from low-cost structures, and simultaneously gain access to a wider range of raw materials.
Flavors and flavor enhancers represents the largest segment in the global food additives market. The segment is buoyed by rising preferences for Asian and Mexican spices as well as savory products. Preference for healthy food products and the subsequent need to improve consumer experience is a key factor promoting flavor innovations. Fat replacers represents the fastest growing segment with sales projected to grow at a compounded annual rate of 5.5% over the analysis period. Growth is largely driven by rising preference for low-fat and low-calorie food products against the backdrop of rising obesity rates and obesity related diseases. Emulsifiers represents the second fastest growing market, driven by increased demand for lecithin, one of the most popular natural emulsifiers due to its superior performance and unmatched functionality.
