Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is Increasing value of gluten-free baked products. Industrial expansion and diversifying lifestyle have transformed the social and economic structure of the society. Modernization of lifestyle has led to the production of many goods on a large scale. The change in the standard of living has marked a shift toward gluten-free bakery products, especially bread, cakes, biscuits pastries, pizza, and donuts due to increasing disposable income. The global gluten free bread was valued at approximately $1.1 billion in 2015, which was approximately 32% of the global gluten-free food.”
According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is Increasing importance of processed food. In recent years, people are making a shift toward processed foodstuff due to convenience in making a purchase, easy storage, and hassle-free preparation and consumption. Increasing innovations in preservatives and packaging is also a major driver to increase the demand for food processing and packaging. The global packaged foods market had reached $2,470 billion in 2016 from $2,350 billion in 2014. The U.S, being a leader in the global food packaging market, has alone reached $ 372.81 billion in 2016. This rapid growth in the demand for food packaging is likely to boost the global release agents market during the forecast period.
Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is Volatility in prices of raw materials. The raw materials like flour, vegetable oils, waxes & wax esters, emulsifiers, and antioxidants that are utilized to produce release agents are highly concentrated in terms of price. For instance, in December 2016, the price of soya bean oil increased to $800.25 per metric ton, from $669.90 per metric ton in July 2016. Hence, marginal fluctuations in the raw material prices is expected to alter the product pricing drastically. This is expected to negatively affect the demand for release agents globally during the forecasted period.
