The global food preservatives market is expected to reach $2,714 million by 2023 from $2,271 million in 2016, registering a CAGR of 2.6% from 2017 to 2023. Preservatives are used in a wide range of products, such as snacks, bakery, confectionery, meat, seafood, and poultry, and others to preserve the natural characteristics of food and to increase the shelf life of food products for storage.

In addition, food preservatives are used to avoid spoilage during transportation. Food is preserved by using either natural preservatives or artificial preservatives. The traditional natural ways of preservation include freezing, boiling, smoking, pasteurizing, pickling, and others. Sugar and salt are the earliest natural ways of food preservation that efficiently reduce the growth of bacteria in food.

Change in consumer preferences is expected to be one of the major factors that drives the demand for food preservatives. Increasing demand for convenience products has increased the demand for foods with longer shelf life, thus augmenting the demand for food preservatives.

Rise in consumption of ready-to-eat food products has also driven the consumption of food preservatives in the recent past. Increase in demand for organic food products restrains the market growth. In addition, the health hazards associated with chemical preservatives are anticipated to hamper the growth of food preservatives market during the forecast period.
