Market Overview:

Food stabilizers are additives that are added to food products to maintain texture, consistency and stability over long periods of storage and under varying environmental conditions like extremes of temperature and humidity. They prevent food products from unwanted changes in their physical state such as sedimentation, agglomeration or crystal formation. The stabilizers provide sufficient viscosity to preserve appearances and ensure optimal mouthfeel of products. They are widely used in various convenience food products like yogurt, ice cream, salad dressings, sauces, dairy products, confectionery and other processed foods. With rapid urbanization and busier lifestyle, demand for convenience and packaged food products is on the rise globally. This has boosted the application of stabilizers in these products which maintain their quality and shelf life.

Market key trends:

One of the key trends in the food stabilizer market is the innovation of clean label and natural stabilizers. With growing health and wellness trend, consumers are increasingly preferring food and beverage products with simple and recognizable ingredients. Major players are focusing on developing novelstabilizers extracted from plants and other natural sources to replace synthetic variants. For instance, gum Arabic, guar gum, carrageenan, pectin and starch have gained popularity as clean label stabilizers. They are preferred for their functional properties and perceived natural image. Rising demand for natural stabilizers from food producers is expected to drive the market during the forecast period.

Porter’s Analysis

Threat of new entrants: The threat of new entrants is moderate. While creating brand awareness and gaining customers’ trust takes significant costs and time, large players already have strong infrastructure and distribution networks in place.

Bargaining power of buyers: The bargaining power of buyers is high due to the fragmented nature of buyers and existence of several substitute products. Buyers can negotiate on price and demand higher quality products.

Bargaining power of suppliers: Bargaining power of suppliers is moderate as suppliers of raw materials like hydrocolloids, proteins, starches etc are limited in number globally but alternatives do exist.

Threat of new substitutes: Threat of new substitutes is moderate as several substitute products exist that offer similar functionalities as food stabilizers while demand for clean label products is increasing.

Competitive rivalry: Competition in the industry is high as the market is dominated by few global players.
