Global Emulsifier Market 2017-2021

About emulsifier

Emulsifiers are substances that help in creating a smooth mixture of two or more ingredients, which otherwise do not combine easily, and keep them from separating. Emulsifiers are molecules with one oil-friendly and one water-friendly end. The water-friendly end in a food emulsifier is known as the hydrophilic tail and the oil-friendly end is known as the hydrophobic head.

Technavio’s analysts forecast the global emulsifier market to grow at a CAGR of 7.16% during the period 2017-2021.

Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Emulsifier Market 2017-2021

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global emulsifier market: Akzo Nobel, BASF, Dow Corning, Evonik Industries, and Kerry Group.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: AAK, Archer Daniels Midland (ADM), Cargill, Clariant, DSM, Ingredion, Lubrizol, Palsgaard, and Solvay.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is growing consumer awareness of health-related issues and subsequent measures being taken. The increasing population and growing concerns over food safety and quality are driving the market for emulsifiers, which are used to enhance the quality of food products. Emulsifiers are also being extensively used owing to their additional benefits, especially in the reduction of sugar and salt content without altering the taste and texture of food and related products.”

According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is increasing demand for convenience and packaged food. Convenience or processed foods are commercially prepared food products that require minimum or no further preparation in order to be consumed. These include packaged foods or meals. Convenience refers to portion-controlled, time-saving, and convenient packaging with freeze/thaw stability. With technological advancements in the packaging industry, the range of convenience foods has also expanded from frozen, chilled, shelf-stable, microwavable, and prepared mixes.

Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is enzymes as substitutes of food emulsifiers. The global emulsifier market may face stiff competition in the future from the growing use of enzymes in bakery products. In the coming years, manufacturers of bakery items like bread, biscuits, cakes, confectionery, and dairy products may start focusing more on using enzymes as they are cost-effective and have multiple functions. However, it is expected that technological advancements in the emulsifiers industry will help offset the competition from enzymes to some extent.
