Food Emulsifiers Market by Type (Mono-, Di-Glycerides, Lecithin, Sorbitan Esters, Stearoyl Lactylates & Polyglycerol Esters), Application (Bakery, Confectionery, Convenience & Dairy, Meat), Source (Plant & Animal), & by Region - Global Trend & Forecast to 2020
The food emulsifiers market is directly influenced by the growing processed food industry. The rise in the consumption of bakery, confectionery, convenience food market, and dairy, and meat products in developing economies is driving the market for food emulsifiers. Busy work schedules together with health and wellness consciousness among consumers have boosted sales of food emulsifiers as they help to reduce fat intake by decreasing the fat requirement in food by providing stability when used even in moderate quantities. In light of the benefits offered by different food emulsifiers and the increasing demand for novel types with various blends that are functionally enhanced and used in a variety of new applications, the demand for natural emulsifier lecithin and other niche emulsifiers such as stearoyl lactylates, polyglycerol esters (PGE), and polyglycerol polyricinoleate (PGPR) is predominant.
