Increased food production and gains in value-added sweeteners, nutraceuticals and natural additives will drive US food additive demand up 4.8 percent annually through 2008. Flavors and flavor enhancers will remain the largest segment, while alternative sweeteners grow the fastest. Grain mill products, pet food and snack food show best market prospects.
This study analyzes the $4 billion US food additive industry. It presents historical demand data for 1993, 1998 and 2003 plus forecasts to 2008 and 2013 by product (e.g., flavors and flavor enhancers, texturizers and fat replacers, emulsifiers, preservatives, nutraceuticals, colorants, enzymes, alternative sweeteners, acidulants, phosphates); and by application (e.g., processed foods, dairy products, bakery products, sauces and condiments, fats and oils, candy).
The study also examines the market environment, details industry structure and market share, and profiles 40 leading industry competitors including Danisco, International Flavors & Fragrances, Sensient, Givaudan, and Archer-Daniels-Midland.
