By Type Analysis

The synthetic type segment dominated the market in 2020 with a revenue share of 84.0%. The effectiveness of synthetic preservatives in inhibiting the growth of mold and yeast coupled with its cost-effectiveness is the primary factor contributing to the segment growth.

The Asia Pacific region is a major producer of spices, honey, vinegar, and other natural products. Thus, many companies are expanding and commissioning their production facilities in the region, which is driving the segment growth.

By Function Analysis

Antimicrobial function emerged as the dominant segment with a revenue share of more than 78% in 2020. As disease outbreak and adulteration cases are rising globally, foodborne diseases have become a major concern, which has increased concern about food safety.

This is due to oxidation being a problem that causes rancidity in foods and cosmetics when the oxygen reacts with the fat and pigment content. Green tea extracts, acerola, rosemary extract, and ascorbic acid possess antioxidant properties and are being widely used for oxidation prevention purposes, thereby contributing to segment growth. 

By Application Analysis

The food application segment accounted for the maximum revenue share of more than 48% in 2020. The growth of the processed meat industries in Asia Pacific and North America is largely responsible for the demand for food preservatives.

The use of feed preservatives has been prominent owing to their effectiveness to preserve feed quality during their transportation and storage. 

Preservatives amplify the shelf life of drugs and medicines by lowering or decreasing the oxidation level of active ingredients in them by reducing microbial production.

By Regional Analysis

North America accounted for the largest revenue share of more than 31.8% in 2020 owing to the high consumption of packaged food coupled with the demand for premium cosmetic products with natural additives.

The market in Asia Pacific is highly fragmented and dynamic owing to the presence of many players in emerging economies. The rapidly developing economies, including China and India, are major revenue contributors to the regional market owing to the increasing purchasing power of the middle-class population.
