Global emulsifier market in the food and beverage industry

The growth of the food and beverage industry and the increasing health consciousness among consumers are factors which are expected to contribute to the growth of the market in this segment. The food and beverage industry is witnessing a rapid adoption of food emulsifiers due to the benefits they offer. Food emulsifiers enhance the consistency, texture, quality, and taste of food and beverages. They also prevent the development of mold, thereby maintaining freshness and quality of food and beverage products.

According to Ajay Adikhari, a lead analyst at Technavio for paints, coatings, and pigments research, “Food emulsifiers are widely being consumed in countries such as China, Japan, and India due to increased demand for packaged and convenience foods. There has been a drastic increase in demand for packaged foods due to the changing lifestyles of consumers and increasing disposable income.

Global emulsifier market in the cosmetics and personal care industry

Cosmetics and personal care products use emulsifiers as thickening and suspending agents for blending liquids of different viscosities. Emulsifiers are also required for blending colors and fragrances, and as emulsions for lotions and creams. An increasing use of cosmetics, hair care, and skin care products, including anti-aging creams and lotions, will fuel the demand for emulsifiers during the forecast period.

Global emulsifier market in the oilfield chemicals industry

Emulsifiers are used in drilling activities to provide stable invert drilling fluids with emulsion stability, preferential oil wetting of solids by the oil phase, filtration control, and temperature stability. Emulsifiers are used in the oilfield chemicals industry as corrosion inhibitors, lubricants, wetting and suspending agents, dispersants, and foam control agents.

“Since emulsifiers are used extensively in drilling, wetting, and gelling fluids, the shale revolution in North America will drive the market's growth during the forecast period,” says Ajay.

Global emulsifier market in the pharmaceutical industry

Production of pharmaceutical creams, ointments, and lotions requires dispersion of solids into liquids, stabilizing agents, and hydrate thickening agents. These products are either water-in-oil emulsion (w/o) or oil-in-water emulsion (o/w) emulsions, which are made of waxes, emollients, and lubricants. Growing health concerns across regions are fueling the growth of the pharmaceuticals industry, which, in turn, is driving the growth of this market.
