Top 12 Vendors in the Food Additives Market in the US from 2016 to 2020, According to Technavio

LONDON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Technavio has announced the top 12 leading vendors in their recent food additives market in the US report until 2020. Vendors are identified based on their revenue and market dominance in terms of experience, geographical presence, product portfolio, financials, and R&D.

One of the important trends in the market is the growing consumer shift toward natural food additives from synthetically derived ones, a result of the growing concern about the ill-effects that the latter can cause on human and environmental health.

“A recent study in the US market has shown that the market for natural shelf life stabilizers saw higher growth than the synthetic additives market. Consumers perceive natural food additives as being safer and healthier than synthetic food additives. Though the cost of manufacturing and acquiring natural food additives is much higher compared to synthetic food additives, the increase in the health-conscious population is influencing their adoption rate,” says Arushi Thakur, a food research expert from Technavio.

Competitive vendor landscape

Changing consumer demands and tastes and growing health consciousness have had significant influence on the food additives market in terms of product differentiation, price, quality, innovation, service, and distribution. Economic wellbeing will bring about improved living standards, increased disposable incomes, and altered spending patterns and lifestyles.

The increasing competition may lead to vendors reducing their product prices, which will negatively affect profit margins and market growth. The current market includes companies of varying sizes. Some companies are also more specialized than others with respect to particular commodities and some companies have larger financial resources than others. Intense competition among vendors, coupled with rapid technological changes, constitutes significant risk factors to vendor operations.
