Global Acetylated Distarch Adipate Market Historical Outlook (2018-2022) vs. Forecast Outlook (2023-2033)

Nowadays, processed food consumption has increased with respect to the rising working population and increasing inclination towards ready-to-eat meals in order to save time. Also, the increasing disposable income of consumers has contributed to rising consumer spending. Escalating ADA demand has propelled investments in the field to improve production. Additionally, the spending attribute has gained the traction of leading manufacturers to constant product innovations in processed foods.

Emerging and developing economies are expected to significantly contribute to global economic growth. The global revenue from the food segment is estimated to be valued at around US$ 245.2 billion in 2022 representing promising consumption of acetylated distarch adipate in the food processing industry. The global food and beverage market is estimated to grow from around US$ 76.6 billion in 2020 to US$ 105.9 billion by 2024, representing an annual growth rate of 84.0%. The expanding global food & beverage industry and increasing demand for acetylated distarch adipate have been favorable to the market growth.

  • Short Term (2023 to 2026): As the economy has rebounded following the pandemic, the processed food sector is oscillating between consumers’ preference towards freshly cooked foods vs ready to eat meals. Owing to this factor, the movement of the market is considered moderate as compared to historic growth.
  • Medium Term (2026-2029): With the fast-moving work life, consumers’ dependence on ready-to-eat meals would always dominate the market. However, process innovations and the presence of fewer preservatives would attract consumers to have counter opinions towards processed food.
  • Long Term (2029-2033): The market for acetylated distarch adipate is anticipated to benefit greatly from the absence of GMO, artificial preservatives containing food preservatives. To appeal to a wider consumer base, manufacturers in the food processing business have introduced a range of non-GMO product offerings.

Over the years 2018 – 2022, the global acetylated distarch adipate market grew by 2.5% and is anticipated to grow by 4.8% between 2023 and 2033, according to the Fact.MR analysis

Acetylated Distarch Adipate Market Forecast 2023 2033

According to the above image, illustrates the analysis of the overall market share of the market based on region and source. Under the source type segment, maize dominates with a 41.4% market share in 2023.

“Acetylated Distarch Adipate is Characterized by Functional Properties that Drive the Market Growth”

The different types of acetylated distarch adipate derived from various sources such as wheat, corn, and tapioca are available that possess process-resistant functionality, i.e being insensitive towards acid, heat, or freeze in the production process. This makes them appropriate for use in various applications and across various industries such as food & beverages processing, dried food production, pharmaceuticals production, paper & pulp processing, and others.

In the food and beverage industry, acetylated distarch is mainly used in applications such as soups and broth as a thickening agent. The additional application includes utilization in the production of packaged & canned foods to increase the shelf life of the product and minimize leakage of frozen products.

Acetylated distarch adipate is also used in the plastics processing industry as an eco-friendly plasticizer widely employed in the manufacturing of electric wire, cables, and packing film.

“Blending with the Vegan offerings will Increase Product Penetration”

The world has experienced a sudden surge in the vegan population post-pandemic. The US experienced a 600.0% growth in the vegan population from 2014 to 2018 bringing the total count to 20.0 million. Similarly, the UK, Australia, and New Zealand are increasingly adopting veganism.

The total global vegan population tallies 79.0 million people in 2021. With this accelerating vegan population, there is an increasing demand for vegan or plant-based dairy products like plant-based milk, cheese butter, and others. With the affinity of blending with vegan dairy products, the demand for acetylated distarch adipate is expected to rise in the forecast period.

Moreover, with the increasing popularity of vegan products, the introduction of a formulation containing acetylated distarch adipate as modified starch is gaining traction in the global market.

“Preferential Inclination towards Label-Friendly and Non-Modified Ingredients Might Redirect the market growth”

Health has become a major driving force for the consumption of food and beverages due to the rising health problems among consumers. This has made consumers take preventive measures such as being selective about the products they consume. Claims and certifications of food products often influence a consumer’s purchase decision. Non-GMO is a trend that has gained popularity in many countries across the globe.

The presence of label-friendly ingredients that do not causes any side effect after consumption has narrowed the consumer base of modified starch and increased the consumption of native unprocessed starch.

North America, Europe, South Asia, and Oceania are key regions where consumers are looking for non-GMO and clean labels on products. Modification of food products is known to be risky for the well-being of humans, which has resulted in an increase in the demand for non-GMO products.

Considering the above-mentioned factors, market growth has been evaluated for the forecast period. Despite the great demand for modified starch, less chemical modification and free from preservatives is required, to meet the surging demand from the food & beverage industry.
