The food emulsifier market share from the beverage segment in Europe was valued at $150 million during 2019 and is set to grow at a 15% CAGR through the next five years.

The growing consumption of the product can be accredited to the spiraling demand for milk & milk products, cold, drinks, and fresh fruit juices across Italy, France, Germany, Spain, and the U.K. With changing customer preferences and growing density of population, the demand for packaged non-alcoholic drinks has also been rising across fast food outlets, restaurants, cafeterias, and hotels.  

Strong popularity of fast food in North America

Lecithin to see growing use in North America

In terms of product, the food emulsifier market in North America has been categorized into sorbitant esters, mono di glycerides & derivatives, stearoyl lactylates, and lecithin. Although the consumption of polyglycerol, esters of sucrose, monoglycerides, and sorbitan has been seeing an increase, lecithin has emerged as one of the most widely used food additives in the region. It is a fatty substance which is either naturally present in certain animal and plant tissues or added to enhance the texture, taste, and shelf-life of products.

The lecithin segment accounted for over $335 million during 2019. Being easily extractible from egg and soy, the antioxidant properties of lecithin, alongside its ability to retain food flavor, are pushing its adoption. As such, it is commonly added to packaged food items, baked goods, and chocolate. The preference for buns and breads has especially been on the rise in the U.S., Canada, and other parts of North America.  

Growing demand for bakery & confectionery across Asia

Asia Pacific food emulsifiers market size is set to grow at a steady pace up to 2026, thanks to the trending demand for bakery & confectionery food items. Although these foods are consumed on a regular basis by several individuals, they are witnessing a marked uptick during celebrations of festivals and special occasions including weddings, anniversaries, birthdays, Christmas, and New Year & corporate parties.

The shift toward gluten-free products across countries such as India, Japan, China, Malaysia, and Thailand is translating to a higher prospect for the market forecast. This is because gluten-free baked savories require emulsifiers to match the taste, appearance, and texture of their gluten-rich counterparts.
