This business report estimates the size of the overall food additives market in terms of value importance. The importance of food additives may be attributed to increasing consumer demand for better quality food products, products with extended shelf-life & natural ingredient content, increasing demand for convenience food, and increase in the consumption of premium food products. The multi-functional properties of food additives are an added advantage and have resulted in its increasing consumption across the world.

The food additives market is estimated to grow $52.20B by 2020 at a Compound annual growth rate of 5.60 percent during the forecast period. In this industry report, the food additives market is broken down by type, source, application, and area.

North America continent recorded for the majority share of the overall food additives market. Food additives have been of immense importance in developed sectors, primarily North America and Western Europe, while the emerging industries of Asia-Pacific and RoW show potential in terms of significant increase rates from 2015 to 2020.

A main trend in the food additives market is the increasing demand for natural additives derived from plants, animals, and microorganisms. Though synthetic additives accounts for the majority share, especially in case of flavors and preservatives, consumption of natural alternatives have prevailed in cases of additives including colors, hydrocolloids, emulsifiers, and enzymes, among others. Moreover, the increasing number of consumers over the years have demanded food products with "no additives" or natural ingredients, or have switched to organic food products, thereby restricting the market increase. This has forced the food sector to expand ingredients that cater to the diverse requirements of processors as well as to meet consumer demands for natural alternatives.

Futhermore, emerging economies, recovery of developed economies, increasing industrialization, growing demand for processed foods, and greater level of consumer preference for high-quality products have resulted in ingredient suppliers becoming increasingly optimistic about the future.

The food additives market was dominated by E.I. DuPont, Archer Daniels Midland, Cargill, Incorporated, and Chr. Hansen A/S with respect to their developments in the past few years. These firms recorded for a cumulative share of about 61.0 percent in the market. Other actors contain companies including Kerry Group, BASF SE, Evonik Industries , Tate & Lyle PLC, Ingredion (NYSE:INGR), and Novozymes (CPH:NZYM-B).

The food additives market by category is categorized into acidulants, anti-caking agents, colors, emulsifiers, enzymes, flavors, hydrocolloids, and sweeteners. The sector for flavors was expected to be the biggest in 2014, and is forecasted to grow with the growing demand for convenience foods, beverages, and other applications.
