Food Stabilizers Market Growth and Forecast (2021-2026):

The global Food Stabilizers Market size was worth US$ 2.3 billion in 2021, and it is estimated that it will reach a valuation of US$ 2.8 billion by the end of 2026, rising at a compound annual growth rate of 4.0% between 2021 and 2026. The growth of the food stabilizers market (mix and system) is driven by the growing demand for natural and healthy food ingredients in the food industry.

Food Stabilizers Market

Market Overview:

Food stabilizers are substances or chemicals in which unmixed food ingredients remain homogeneous. They maintain the physicochemical state of the food to guarantee a homogeneous dispersion. They also help maintain food color, shape, texture, consistency, and stability. These benefits have increased the use of food stabilizers in a variety of foods, including bakeries, confectionery, dairy products, beverages and fast food, sauces, and more. Pectin, carrageenan, gelatin, agar, and calcium chloride are some of the stabilizers commonly used in cooking. Currently, the use of food stabilizers has increased in recent years due to the emergence of convenient and organic foods and the influence of westernized eating habits.

Recent Developments in Food Stabilizers Industry:

  • In October 2018, CP Kelco launched the new GENU Explorer Pectin ND-200 ingredient solution. This solution is employed in dairy products like pH neutral dairy desserts.
  • In September 2018, Kerry established a new production plant in Moscow, Russia. This new facility aims to support Kerry's global and local customer base in Russia. The same is true in countries like Belarus, Tajikistan, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, and Azerbaijan.
  • In June 2018, Cargill agreed to acquire Five Star Custom Foods, Ltd (USA), a professional food manufacturer. The contract was planned to close in the summer of 2018 after a regulatory review.

Food Stabilizers Market Growth:

The main driving force for market growth is increased consumption of processed foods, multifunctionality of food stabilizers, and increased use of natural ingredients in foods as consumer awareness of healthy eating increases.


The increasing demand for food stabilizers in prepared foods to improve the shelf life of food is an essential factor driving the growth of the global market for food stabilizers today. Additionally, the adoption of food stabilizers in a variety of foods such as bakeries, beverages, and sauces is another factor driving growth in target markets. In addition, increased demand for food stabilizers in the dairy and confectionery industry and higher disposable income are among the other key factors expected to drive growth in the global market for food stabilizers during the projection period. The global market for food stabilizers (mixtures and systems) is continuously inspired by food, one of the basic needs of humans. The ability to modify and improve the quality and appearance of food is strengthening the global market for food stabilizers (mix and system).

The significant investment in the global market for food stabilizers (mix and system) has proven to offer more jobs and is proliferating. Another key factor responsible for the development of the worldwide market is the low cost of raw materials. Low labor cost is a factor that will help drive the global market for food stabilizers (mixes and systems). The growing demand for prepared food is evident in all the prominent regions of the world. As the number of people choosing ready-to-eat foods and beverages increases, the role of food stabilizers in nature is becoming increasingly important. For convenience, food sales, shelf life, stability, and visual appeal should be longer. Therefore, companies in this sector are continually looking for the perfect food stabilizer that can meet all the necessary requirements and reach consumers more effectively with improved quality. This is expected to serve as an essential driver for the overall development of the global food stabilizers market and will continue to grow during the outlook period.


The prices of hydrocolloid raw materials, crude materials for mixtures and systems, are constantly fluctuating, creating uncertainty in the market. The cost of the hydrocolloid raw material affects the price of the hydrocolloid and, consequently, the price of the final food product. The gum sources, which include carrageenan, agar, and alginic acid, are also obtained from algae. When choosing a chewing gum source for applications like corn and ice cream, formulators consider not only price but other factors as well. Such an increase in raw material prices will increase the cost of food stabilizer manufacturers' products and operations. In order to combat this volatility in raw material costs, several food stabilizer makers are turning towards substitutes like seaweeds. Restrictions on the use of certain stabilizer mixtures, strict government regulations on application and quantity, and consumer preference for fresh foods hinder the global food stabilizers market growth.

Regional Analysis:

In terms of geographical division, there are five leading regions in the global market for food stabilizers, namely North America, Latin America, the Middle East and Africa, Asia Pacific and Europe.

Of these, the Europe food stabilizers market is always at the forefront in terms of contributing to the overall growth of the global business. To support the shelf life and appeal of food products in terms of appearance, texture, and taste, there has always been a constant need for food stabilizers from the region. The region is anticipated to be in high demand for organic food, which will be used to improve shelf life. Furthermore, the need for packaged and processed foods is also quite high in the region and is expected to play an essential role in driving the growth of the local market in the coming years.

On the other hand, North America is showing promising growth rates in the coming years. Positive growth in both organic and convenience foods is foreseen. The region is seeing increasing demand for these natural food stabilizers as processed food-related health problems increase. Additionally, many consumers in the area are aware of a variety of foodborne illnesses and ailments, and food stabilizers can help address these problems. This is also presumed to support the overall development of the local market.
