Food Emulsifiers are used for improving the texture of food, to mix ingredients well, maintain good taste and quality of the product. Emulsifiers that are commercially used come from natural and synthetic sources. They include Lecithin, Esters of monoglycerides of fatty acids, Mono- and diglycerides of fatty acids and are used in processed foods such as mayonnaise, ice-cream, and baked goods. The Food Emulsifiers market is expected to grow at a significant rate due to a rise in disposable income and increasing consumption of processed and premium food products. Due to multifunctional attributes of emulsifiers, they have a number of end use applications which is expected to drive the market growth. However, health problems associated with the consumption of food containing synthetic emulsifiers is expected to be a restraint for market growth. Moreover, there is limited extraction and additional cost associated with the extraction of emulsifiers from natural sources which is expected to hamper the market growth.
By type, Mono- & di-glycerides and their derivatives segment is estimated to have a significant market share due to its various applications. By application, dairy and frozen products segment is expected to have a significant market growth due to increased consumption of products in this segment. By geography, North America is projected to have a significant market share due to increased consumption of convenience foods in this region.
