Technavio food and beverage analysts highlight the following three market drivers that are contributing to the growth of the global food preservatives market:
- Rising demand for frozen and packaged foods
- Growing desire for convenience
- Increasing complexities in food supply chain
Rising demand for frozen and packaged foods
The demand for frozen foods and packaged products is on the rise since the last decade. Many countries around the world have experienced rapid urbanization in recent years. Such an expansion in urbanized population has resulted in new habits and preferences for international food trends. The urbanized population is inclined toward packaged foods, and hence, various supermarkets and hypermarkets supply chilled and packaged food items. Frozen foods are mostly preferred due to time constraints.
“The growing number of working women along with the growth of the middle-class population will contribute to the demand for frozen and packaged products, which, in turn, will boost the demand for food preservatives,” says Manjunath Reddy, a lead analyst at Technavio for food research.
Growing desire for convenience
The consumption of convenience food has gained momentum during the last few years as consumers are choosing ready-to-eat meals because of their hectic lifestyles. These ready-to-eat meals can reduce the preparation, cooking, and clean-up times. In addition, the ease of use associated with packaging techniques and microwave cooking supports the growth of the frozen food segment. The importance of convenience, especially in the frozen ready-to-eat meals market, is unsurprising because these products have emerged as time-saving meals.
“Around 8 in 10 consumers across Europe consider frozen or prepared meals to be a good option when they are busy and cannot cook from scratch,” says Manjunath.
Increasing complexities in food supply chain
The global food supply is growing continuously in volume and complexity. Imports are expected to increase because of cost concerns, availability, and consumer demand for diverse food products. The complexities of the food supply chain have been increasing in recent times. With more people looking for freshness in foods, the demand for effective preservation techniques is on the rise.
It is difficult to know where the food is grown, and in what form it gets transported around the world. Some food products are shipped across the world as ingredients while others are exported as finished products. Thus, the rising supply chain complexities generate new opportunities to effectively store and extend the shelf life of the products by using preservatives and ensure that the components of food are safe for consumption.
