The inclusion of a fining agent preparation in wine serves the purpose of mitigating or diminishing its astringency and/or bitterness, eliminating proteins that could lead to haze formation, or diminishing color through the adsorption and precipitation of polymeric phenols and tannins. This process involves the fining agent reacting with wine components either chemically or physically, resulting in the formation of a new complex that can be separated from the wine.

Commonly used and approved fining agents for wine include Gelatine, Isinglass, Egg white (egg albumen), casein, and skim milk, among others. It is important to note that the addition of protein-based fining agents to white wines may impact protein stability. Therefore, conducting a heat stability test after completing the fining operation is advisable. Traditionally, other fining agents such as blood, agar-agar, and occasionally milk have been utilized.

In categorizing the Wine Fining Agent Market by wine type, distinctions are made between white, red, and others. Furthermore, the wine fining agent market is segmented by end-users, including individuals and industry. These comprehensive classifications reflect the diverse landscape of fining agents within the wine industry, encompassing various types and catering to both personal and industrial applications.

Market Drivers

  • Increase in demand for the overall liquor market

Winemakers and other liquor producers are navigating a landscape marked by escalating global competition and evolving consumer preferences. Notably, consumers are showing an increasing inclination towards wines with lower alcohol content and a preference for products that are not only of high quality but also produced and packaged in sustainable ways.

The year 2021 emerged as a landmark period for wine exports, with global figures reaching an impressive 111.6 million hectoliters (mhl) and a total value of €34.3 billion, primarily driven by exports from Europe. This record-breaking performance underscores the robust demand for wines on the international market. The substantial export volume highlights the wine industry's ability to cater to diverse consumer preferences and tap into a global market that is increasingly diverse and discerning.

The surge in global wine exports signals the fact that consumers are gravitating towards wines with lower alcohol content aligns with broader trends in health consciousness and a desire for lighter, more sessionable options.  Furthermore, the emphasis on sustainability in wine production and packaging reflects a growing awareness of environmental concerns among consumers. Overall all these trends will lead to the demand for the wine fining agent with wine production.

  • Growing awareness of the organic fining agent  

The surge in the organic and natural wine movement reflects a growing consumer preference for wines crafted with minimal intervention. Companies such as Enartis are at the forefront of this trend. Notably, Enartis offers vegan clarification products like Plantis AF and AF-P, derived from vegetable proteins. These allergen-free solutions are utilized in the clarification process. Serving as alternatives to traditional options like gelatin and casein, these products highlight a shift towards more eco-friendly winemaking. Enartis also introduces Plantis PQ, enriched with chitosan, specifically designed for clarification in red wine production. The availability and utilization of such environmentally conscious products underscore the influence of younger consumers who prioritize sustainability in their choices. Additionally, consumers are increasingly drawn to wines that offer authenticity and a distinct identity, further fueling the demand for more sustainable and unique wine options.

Market Restraints

  • Climate change affecting farming-

As per the EEA report, wine cultivation in southern Europe is facing a necessity to transition towards vine varieties that exhibit greater resilience to climatic conditions. This shift also suggests the modification of product specifications for wines with geographical indications, permitting the utilization of such resilient vine types. The decision comes from growing concerns related to climate change-induced challenges such as spring frost, hail, excessive heat, and drought. The objective is to adapt to these changing environmental conditions and ensure the sustainability of wine production in the region.

The wine fining agent market is segmented by wine type into white, red, and others.

The Wine Fining Agent Market is categorized by wine type into white, red, and others. White wines, celebrated for their delicate aromas and crisp acidity, necessitate a nuanced fining approach. In the realm of Red Wine, the focus is on employing fining agents to soften harsh tannins, stabilize color, and eliminate unwanted sediments. The Others category encompasses a diverse array, comprising Rosé, Red, Sparkling, and white variations.

Europe is anticipated to hold a significant share of the wine-fining agent market.

Europe will hold a notable position in the wine-fining agent market, holding a substantial share due to its dominance in global wine production and consumption. The EU alone produces half the world's wine, with powerhouses like Spain, France, and Italy boasting an impressive three-quarters of this output. This vast landscape, with its intricate tapestry of 2.2 million vineyards, naturally fuels the demand for wine-fining agents.  The diversity in vineyard sizes there reflects the rich viticultural landscape within the European Union, emphasizing its prominence in the global wine industry.
