Global Emulsifiers Market to Grow at 6.2% During 2022-2027, Fostered by Growing Sales of Convenience Foods

Published on Aug 05, 2020

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled "Emulsifiers Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2022-2027," the global emulsifiers market is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 6.2% during 2022-2027. Emulsifiers are surfactants that consist of hydrophilic and hydrophobic ends. These molecules act as a border between two immiscible liquids, thus further allowing them to become finely dispersed to create a stable and smooth emulsion. They act as a surface-active agent that lowers the surface tension between the liquid components. Commonly derived from plant, animal and synthetic sources, they are widely used as additives in the preparation of numerous food products and processed items, such as mayonnaise and ice creams, to attribute a smooth texture, prevent separation and improve their shelf life. They are also used to minimize the stickiness and control crystallization in certain culinary procedures. Apart from this, they are widely used in the production of various personal care products and pharmaceuticals.

We are regularly tracking the direct effect of COVID-19 on the market, along with the indirect influence of associated industries. These observations will be integrated into the report.

Global Emulsifiers Market Trends:

The market is primarily driven by the growing demand for convenience foods on the global level. This can be attributed to the hectic lifestyles led by the majority of the population, along with the changing dietary preferences and the inflating per capita income levels. Emulsifiers form an indispensable ingredient in the preparation of numerous foods due to their excellent stabilizing properties. They are used to keep bakery products moist and to improve their texture as well as to prevent separation of liquid ingredients and offer improved emulsion in chilled chocolates and dairy foods. Moreover, emulsifiers are widely used in the formulation of various personal care products, such as moisturizers, face creams and bath oils. The shifting preference toward the adoption of organic personal care and cosmetic products is facilitating the demand for bio-based emulsifiers, which, in turn, is creating a positive outlook for the market. However, synthetic emulsifiers offer high performance when compared with the bio-based variants. As a result, numerous players are heavily investing the research and development (R&D) to improve the overall functionality of natural emulsifiers.
