Global Food Additives Market, The is a new publication from Leatherhead Food Research, which updates the previous edition last published in 2011. Global Food Additives Market discusses and reviews the global market for food additives, notable examples of which include flavours, sweeteners, hydrocolloids, enzymes, colours, preservatives and antioxidants. Information provided within the report includes market size data for the last five years, as well as an extensive review of the competitive landscape and discussion of likely future directions for the industry. Growth is now returning to the global food additives market, as many parts of the world recover from the economic recession and its adverse effect upon consumer spending.
The processed foods industry in less developed parts of the world – such as China, India and parts of Latin America – continues to expand, thereby increasing demand for various types of food additives. Consumers and food manufacturers are also turning to ‘natural’ food additives in greater numbers, whilst the ongoing demand for healthier foods continues to drive sales of products suitable for sugar and saturated fat replacement.
