by ravi on Mar 21, 2022 Business 26 Views


According to the Market Statsville Group, the global additives market size was valued at USD 155.4 billion in 2021 and is projected to reach USD 222.6 billion by 2030, growing at a CAGR of 4.6% from 2022 to 2030. Additives such as epoxidized soyabean oil (ESO), stabilizers, and phosphorus-based flame retardant additives are specialty additives used in end-use industries such as healthcare & pharmaceuticals, agriculture, and packaging films. An increase in the application of additives in the food & beverages, packaging, and building & construction sectors is a key driving force of the global market. Also, additives are widely used in fertilizers, batteries, fuel, and agrochemicals, which is predicted to boost the market growth during the forecast period.

The increased use of fuel additives in the petroleum industry helps to improve the quality of fuel and improves the octane rating of gasoline or acts as corrosion inhibitors, which is another factor that is favorable to the global market's growth. Furthermore, lubricity additives are important to fuel additives used during the formulation of diesel that protects internal contact points in fuel pumps and injection systems in diesel engines. So, all these factors together are predicted to augment the demand for additives in the global market. However, extended use of food additives possess health-related issues such as digestive disorders, nervous disorders, respiratory disorders, and skin problems, which is a considerable factor that is predicted to hamper the market growth.

Global Additives Market Covid-19 Impact

The COVID-19 pandemic has negatively impacted the global economy and is subsequently shrinking the GDP of economies across the globe, thereby changing consumer spending patterns globally. The COVID-19 pandemic puts forward several challenges. However, according to the IFAC (International Food Additives Council), food additives are gaining importance in the food sector, owing to maintaining the safety and quality of foods in the home pantry. As per the report by Food Ingredients First, there has been a rise in staple kitchen products such as flours, lentils, grains, rice, and bakery ingredients. Food additives help to extend the product's shelf life and allow consumers to stock up on food products without trepidation of instantaneous expiration. The major players in the global additives market are launching innovative additives to tackle the spread of coronavirus. In addition, automotive manufacturers prefer incorporating additives during the manufacturing of interiors to curb the spread of trapped virus particles inside the cabin.

Global Additives Market Dynamics

DriversGrowing food & packaging industry

Increasing awareness for hygiene and organic food options has surged the demand for packed food & beverage items. According to a report, the packed food & beverages industry has launched around 3,500 new food products worldwide over the past 12 months. Individuals widely prefer these packed food & beverages items due to their freshness, taste, hygiene, and other specifications. These specifications are met by using a wide range of food additives such as high fructose corn syrup, monosodium glutamate, guar gum, sodium nitrite, and others. This is expected to act as one of the key drivers for the growth of additives in the food & beverages industry.

RestraintsRegulations led by various regulatory bodies

If exposed beyond a certain level, Additives may cause several health-related disorders such as diarrhea, colicky pains, insomnia, asthma, and others. According to a report published by the International Journal of Pharmaceutical Sciences and Research (IJPSR), consuming food-based additives, such as monosodium glutamate (MSG) and sulfite, can cause headaches and redness of eyes & skin, nausea, sweating, weakness, and health disorders. In response to this, several regulatory bodies, such as the European Commission (EU) and Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS), have issued certain guidelines for the use of additives. This may hamper the growth of the additives market during the forecast period.

OpportunitiesChemical stability and pH control to offer opportunities for the market growth

Intense R&D in the medical field has led the pharmaceutical sector to grow rapidly. The medicines are made more effective to diseases by using various additives such as solubilizing, surfactant, stabilizing, and other parental additives. These additives act as active ingredients in improving the internal & external nutritional occupancy, self-life, chemical stability, and other specific characteristics. For instance, Pfizer's COVID-19 vaccine contains a dibasic sodium phosphate (dehydrate) additive to maintain the vaccine's chemical stability and pH. As a result, the use of additives in the pharmaceutical industry is expected to provide lucrative opportunities for the additives market to expand in the coming years.
