Middle East and Africa Food Emulsifiers Market Growth and Forecast (2023 - 2028):

Middle East and Africa Food Emulsifiers Market is currently valued at 140 Million USD in 2022. The market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 4.72% over the forecast period to reach a valuation of 180 Million USD in 2028.

Market Overview:

Emulsifiers are commonly used in meat and other related products. Among the various emulsifiers, the egg is one of the oldest and most widely used variety. They are widely used in chocolate and confectionery products, offering numerous advantages during processing and storage. PGPR and lecithin are the primary emulsifiers used in chocolate. Moreover, new emulsifiers are also being developed to allow oil and water to be mixed in a stable state for an extended period. The food industry is shifting towards the use of lecithin in emulsions because the hydrophobic component dissolves in oil and water. As a result, the resulting emulsion will live for a longer time. In addition, lecithin breaks down blood and dietary fats in small particles, helping to reduce weight.

Market Drivers And Restraints:

Major factors which have helped drive the Middle East and Africa Food Emulsifiers Market forward are-

The penetration of the organized retail sector is a significant driver of the food emulsifier market. 

The need to ensure the safety and quality of food, transport from farm to fork and storage are a concern, where Food emulsifiers are used to satisfy this requirement. Furthermore, an increase in the population and an increase in disposable income for middle-class households generate a resulting demand for food and, in effect, for emulsifiers.

The growth of the European Food Emulsifiers market is driven mainly by factors such as increasing consumer awareness of trans-fat products, driving food processors to use emulsifiers to reduce calories and fat content.

Innovative processing methods used for product expansion have also invariably increased the market for these emulsifiers.

The factors holding the Middle East and Africa Food Emulsifiers Market back include-

The requirement for clean labels has proved to be a significant cost factor for food emulsifier manufacturers in terms of raw material sourcing and production processes, becoming a major constraint in the industry.

Complex Regulatory bodies and rising consumer demand for natural emulsifiers hinder the growth of the Middle East and Africa industry.
