Europe Feed Anti Caking Agents Market size was around USD XX billion in 2022. It is expected to grow at a CAGR of XX% to reach USD XX billion by 2027.
Anti-caking agent is an additive, utilized in the food industry including seasoning & condiments, dairy bakery, products, meat products, soups & sauces, and sweeteners. It is utilized in the form of powder or granules for preventing the formation of lumps and for easing consumption, packaging, and transport. They are nutritionally void. Few commonly used anti-caking agents in the food industry are calcium silicate, magnesium stearate, powdered cellulose, sodium aluminosilicate, silicon dioxide, sodium bicarbonate, magnesium trisilicate, calcium Ferro cyanide potassium aluminum silicate, sodium Ferro cyanide, stearic acid, tricalcium phosphate, and polydimethylsiloxane. Sodium aluminosilicate is utilized as an anti-caking agent in table salts.
The market is expected to witness significant growth during the aforementioned forecast period due to the rising demand for the agent in feeds and fertilizers in the manufacture of fertilizers. Demand for fertilizers is expected to rise in order to enhance the crop yield. An increase in demand for fertilizers is expected to fuel the market growth. Factors like ease of transportation and utilization in packaging and consumption are also anticipated to boost the demand for anticaking agents. Robust growth in the livestock industry is one of the key factors propelling the anti-caking agent for the feed & fertilizer market.
On the other hand, the potential health hazard is estimated to hinder the market growth. Moreover, the implementation of strict governmental regulations, particularly in developed countries, is anticipated to unfavorably affect the overall market during the aforementioned forecast period.
The market is segmented
Sources include synthetic and natural agents. Natural anti-caking agents like magnesium carbonate and calcium carbonate are very costly and thus synthetic agents are widely preferred. Major applications of anti-caking agents are in food, feed, and fertilizers. Application in food includes bakery, sauces, condiments, seasoning, dairy products, and soups. Applications in fertilizers include potassium, nitrogen, ammonium, phosphorus, and compound-based fertilizers. Certain limitations like inert properties and its classification as “Generally Recognized as Safe” (GRAS) is anticipated to complement anti-caking agents’ market growth. But still, only specific amounts of anti-caking agents are allowed in food & beverage applications, further reducing its consumption in the application. This is anticipated to have an adverse effect on market growth.
By geography, the market is segmented into
Europe is a high mature market with demand anticipated to be fuelled by anti-caking agents applied in processed foods. Numerous regulations implemented by the European Food Safety Authority to limit the development of anti-caking agents are anticipated to challenge European market growth.
