The Europe Release Agents Market was at US$ xx million in 2022, and it is estimated that it will reach a valuation of US$ xx million by 2028 with a steady growth rate between 2023 and 2028.

Market Overview:

A release agent is a chemical that is applied to the surface of a mold or container to prevent other substances from sticking. We can provide process solutions related to casting release, adhesive release, plastic release, tire release, and bands. Release agents are increasingly used in end-user applications like rubber, paper, plastic, etc., as they can avoid surface adhesion. Due to changes in people's lifestyles, busy schedules, and health concerns around the world, people are paying attention to processed foods for food safety and storage. Processed foods, such as cooked, dry, canned, and frozen foods, require release agents to help separate food from trays, trays, and other packaging materials. Release agents are substances that eliminate the bond between two surfaces. Release agents are used to release from muffins and breads, high sugar baked goods, dry baked goods, perforated sheets, and baking sheets. In addition, the release agent is also used in Teflon-coated molds to increase the life of the coating. Release agents such as acetylated white, mineral oil, stearic acid, monoglycerides and polyethylene glycol are especially applied in food processing equipment in assemblies that come into direct contact with food materials. Within in the baking process, release agents are used as core ingredients in various phases because of their physical features. Proper selection of release agents is important to provide a consistent, thin oil film around processed foods.

Recent Developments in Europe Release Agents Industry:

  • In January 2018, DuPont completed the acquisition of FMC Corporation's health and nutrition business. This acquisition will strengthen the company's position in the specialty materials market.

Europe Release Agents Market Growth:

The increasing use of mold release agents in the construction and food processing industries is one of the main drivers of the Europe Release Agents market.


The release agents market in Europe has registered notable development lately because of the shift to more effective products from the traditional vegetable oils and emulsifiers in the food industry. The demand for release agents has exploded around the world, especially in the confectionery and bakery industry. The high demand for release agents is due to the quality of operation and performance of the product. The main function of mold release agents is to remove food from trays, molds, pans and cans during the baking process. These release agents were also used in the earlier days in plastics and tire molds, which were considered as hazardous to humans. The demand for Europe Release Agents market is being accepted in the bakery and confectionery industry due to the problem of sticking products to the surface of equipment, containers and machinery. Due to these factors, manufacturers in the bakery and confectionery industry have adopted base oil as a Release Agent. The use of release agents as processing aids is a key factor driving the growth of the Europe Release Agents market due to the increasing demand for bakery and confectionery products. Also, the increasing use of release agents for release agents, rubber molding and aluminum release agents in the concrete construction industry is another factor that is supposed to drive the growth of the Europe Release Agents market. Additionally, the increasing adoption of release agents in the plastics, die casting, and paper industries is another crucial factor that is supposed to fuel the growth of Europe release agents business during the outlook period. The release agent market is experiencing maximum growth due to its excellent physical stability, release agents are easily applied by spray, increasing the use of natural or organic agents that have a favorable effect on the release agent and increasing the demand for bakery products.

In addition, changes in eating habits and an increase in industrial food production are other factors that are likely to prosper in the Europe Release Agents market. Additionally, advancements in new technologies have aided the development of high performance and environmentally friendly Europe Release Agents that have increased the demand for Europe Release Agents in various applications. The regional demand for mold release agents is increasing, especially in the bakery and confectionery industries. The demand is determined by the quality and functionality of the product performance. The increasing demand for mold release agents in the bakery and confectionery industry is one of the factors that greatly supports the development of the Europe Release Agents market.


The risk of a release agent reacting to the surface of the food or container, its detrimental effects on the taste and odor of food, allergens in release agents, and strict government regulations on health and safety can hamper Europe Release Agents market growth in the near future. The fluctuating costs of raw materials, especially vegetable oils, are expected to hamper Europe Release Agents market growth. Also, conventional release agents are known to be toxic to humans and the environment, which can hamper Europe Release Agents market growth. Besides, the release agent consists of some hazardous chemicals that require federal regulations for use in some industries, such as the plastics and rubber industries, which is likely to hamper the growth of the Europe release agents market during the outlook period.
