Report Description


Food Additives are non-nutritive substances added to food in small amounts to improve taste, flavor, texture or appearance and consistency in shelf life. There are different types of additives such as acidity regulators, antioxidants, artificial sweeteners, thickeners and vegetable gums. Food additives such as sugar and salt have been used since ancient times.

The global shelf-life food additives market has grown incrementally and is expected to grow at a healthy rate due to an increase in demand for convenience food and snacks and demographic changes. However, global shortage of raw material still poses a threat to the growth of this market. 

Major segments included in this report are natural antioxidants and synthetic antioxidants. Natural antioxidants are preferred over synthetic antioxidants; however synthetic antioxidants are highly consumed as compared to natural antioxidants. There are a variety of antioxidants including herbal extracts (rosemary extracts), Vitamin E, Vitamin C (ascorbyl palmitate), gallates, tocopherols and hindered phenols. Hindered phenols account for larger market share followed by herbal extracts and ascorbates acid. Hindered phenol is expected to grow initially and is then expected to decelerate due to health issues. Herbal extract is expected to have a healthy growth rate due to healthy food habits and brand name consciousness. Price of synthetic antioxidants is expected to remain stable whereas that of natural antioxidants i.e., mixed tocopherols is expected to grow at a significant rate over the analysis period.

North America is one of the geographical regions leading in both consumption and production followed by Europe and Asia Pacific. The U.S. has more demand of genetically modified based mixed tocopherols than non- genetically modified based. The market of vitamin C in U.S. is dominated by Chinese manufacturers as Chinese players are focusing to increase market share.

Some of the major players in shelf-life food additives market are MNCs such as BASF, Danisco, Eastman Chemicals, and DSM, Royal DSM N.V. and ADM.
