Pune, India, November 16, 2017/ MRFR Press Release- Market Research Future published a Half Cooked Research Report on the Global Emulsifier, Stabilizer and Thickener (EST) Market, which is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 6.7% during the forecast period 2017-2023
Emulsifier, stabilizer, and thickener (EST) are used as food additives, which helps to stabilize emulsify and thicken food products. They are primarily used as food additive agent, which gives consistent texture, taste, and mouthfeel. Many low-fat foods are dependent on stabilizers. Some of the common EST are starches, gums, pectin, agar-agar, lecithin, and others. They are widely used in various industries such as bakery and confectionery, dairy and frozen desserts, beverages, oil and fats, sweet and savory snacks, meat products, and others.
Emulsifier, stabilizer, and thickener (EST) are primarily extracted from a natural substance and used as a direct additive in products to provide structure, viscosity, stability, and other qualities such as maintaining existing color. Increasing inclination towards processed foods in developed countries is driving the market for EST. Moreover, continuously rising demand for new ingredients in food processing is further boosting the growth of the EST market owing to its functional attribute.
Increasing demand for processed meat and seafood is further boosting the growth of the EST market. Moreover, new processing techniques used for product development have also invariably raised the market for EST. However, few stringent laws and regulations may restrain the growth of the market over the review period. Nevertheless, all these factors are projected to contribute to the estimated CAGR of 6.7% of EST market during the forecast period 2017-2023.
