Changes in people’s lifestyles and various consumer trends toward the use of ready-to-eat food products drive the expansion of the worldwide food preservatives industry. The food and beverage processing industry has had a significant impact on the food preservatives market. Furthermore, expansion in bakery, confectionery, meat, and poultry applications is projected to drive food preservative demand in the near future. However, tight rules in governing the use of chemical preservatives in many places, as well as surge in consumer awareness about the usage of these chemicals, are projected to stymie market growth in the foreseeable future.

Increased demand for natural food preservatives in established economies, as well as increased need for processed food in emerging areas, drives this growth.
