Global Food Additives Market to Reach US$ 74.1 Billion by 2027, Impelled by Increasing Consumption of Ready-To-Eat Foods

December 09, 2022

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled "Food Additives Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2022-2027," the global food additives market reached a value of US$ 53.2 Billion in 2021. Food additives refer to edible substances that are often added to food products to maintain their appearance, taste, texture and freshness. They are mainly produced synthetically or derived from animals and plants that are categorized into broad categories, such as processing and sensory agents, nutritional additives and preservatives. Besides this, they are also used in the production, treatment, processing, packaging, storage or transportation of food. Due to the escalating shift toward aesthetically appealing food items and the multifunctionality of food additives, there has been a significant rise in their uptake in the preparation of numerous food items.

Global Food Additives Market Trends:

The global market is primarily driven by the growing preference for convenience food products among the masses. Coupled with the changing dietary patterns of individuals and the increasing consumption of ready-to-eat (RTE) foods due to the busy lifestyle led by working professionals, this is providing a boost to the market. Along with this, numerous leading players are heavily investing in the manufacturing of organically produced food additives on account of the escalating health consciousness among the masses, which is significantly supporting the product demand on the global level. Moreover, the proliferation of quick-service restaurants (QSRs) and emerging café culture are acting as major growth-inducing factors for the market, especially in developing nations. Apart from this, continual technological advancements in product manufacturing processes are creating a positive market outlook. Other factors, including continual developments in the food and beverage industry and extensive research and development (R&D) activities conducted by key players to introduce improved product variants, are also positively influencing the market. On account of the aforementioned factors, the market is anticipated to reach a value of US$ 74.1 Billion by 2027, exhibiting a CAGR of 5.79% during 2022-2027.
