DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/s5j6q4/global_food) has announced the addition of the "Global Food Emulsifier Market 2014-2018" report to their offering.
The analysts forecast the Global Food Emulsifier market to grow at a CAGR of 5.46 percent over the period 2013-2018. One of the key factors contributing to this market growth is the increasing preference for low-fat foods. The Global Food Emulsifier market has also been witnessing the increasing demand for packaged and convenience foods. However, the entry of low-priced products and private label offerings could pose a challenge to the growth of this market.
The key vendors dominating this market space are Cargill Inc., Danisco A/S, Palsgaard A/S, and Riken Vitamin Co Ltd.
Other vendors mentioned in the report are Archer Daniels Midland Co., BASF SE, Hispanagar S.A., and Jungbunzlauer AG.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from the team said: In the past decade, changing lifestyles due to rapid urbanization and shortage of time to prepare meals has led to a high demand for packaged and convenience foods. Packaged and convenience foods are processed food with food emulsifiers that maintain the quality, taste and texture of the food along with increased shelf life. Some examples of processed food are canned cereals, ready-to-cook meals, dehydrated soups, canned meat products, and canned dairy products. Food emulsifiers such as Mono and Di glycerides, Lecithin, Sorbitan, Esters, and Stearoyl Lactylates play an important role in the manufacture of packaged and convenience foods. Thus, the increase in demand for packaged and convenience food is expected to create a higher demand for food emulsifiers, thereby leading to emerging growth in the Global Food Emulsifier market.
According to the report, one of the major drivers in the market is the increasing preference for low-fat foods. With the increase in preference for low-fat foods, the consumption of food emulsifiers also increases, as emulsifiers are used in diverse segments such as dairy, bakery, confectionery, processed foods, fats, and oils, which is likely to fuel the growth of the Global Food Emulsifier market. The majority of the demand for food emulsifiers comes from the APAC region as this region is densely populated with consumers with increasing disposable income whose lifestyle is changing.
