Preservatives Market Challenges – Stringent Government Rules and Regulations
Stringent regulatory scenario regarding use of preservatives due to its negative health impact is a challenge for growth of the global preservatives market. Various authorities across the globe regulate usage of preservatives. Despite its usage in various end-use industries, preservatives are associated with a number of health issues such as cancer, hyperactivity, and heart issues. The U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) implemented certain guidelines for usage of preservatives in food and medicines. According to FDA, 'a chemical preservative should comply with purity specifications in regulations in 21 CFR 172, or in the Food Chemicals Codex'. Also, countries such as Finland, Norway, Austria, U.K. and France have banned synthetic food colorings, while the U.K. and Canada have banned usage of Olestra (a fat substitute preservative). This inhibits growth of the preservatives industry to a certain extent.
Asia Pacific is expected to be the fastest growing market for preservatives over the forecast period, owing to increasing demand for ready-to-consume food items and growing retail industry. North America is the largest market for preservatives, followed by Europe and the regions are expected to retain their dominance over the forecast period. This is mainly attributed to the availability of a number of retail outlets and busy lifestyle of consumers, increasing their inclination towards ready-to-eat food products. Large untapped markets in countries such as India, Bangladesh, South Africa, China, Malaysia, and Mexico would provide lucrative growth opportunities for preservative manufacturers in the near future.
