Sales Analysis of Sodium Tripolyphosphate (2018-2022) Vs. Market Forecast Outlook (2023-2033)

STPP is also known as pentasodium triphosphate or pentasodium salt. Since sodium tripolyphosphate is alkaline by nature and raises the pH of meats or seafood to help preserve food for a long time. It also serves as an emulsifier, stabilizer, and dispersion agent in food processing in addition to serving as a food preservative. These factors are anticipated to drive the market over the forecast period.

  • Short Term Growth Factors: Rising demand for cleaning solutions is driving the market for sodium tripolyphosphate.
  • Medium Term Growth Factors: Asia Pacific and North America are anticipated to witness high sodium tripolyphosphate demand on the back of the growing food and beverage end-use industries in these regions.
  • Long Term Growth Factors: Rising use of sodium tripolyphosphate in paints with the growing construction industry will drive sodium tripolyphosphate demand.

Over the 2018-2022 historical period, the global sodium tripolyphosphate market registered a CAGR of 3.1%, and according to the Fact.MR, a market research and competitive intelligence provider, the market is projected to exhibit growth at 4.5% CAGR between 2023 and 2033.

Sodium Tripolyphosphate market forecast by Fact.MR

Market share analysis of sodium tripolyphosphate based on form and region is provided in a nutshell in the above image. Under the form segment, the powder sub-segment dominates with a 64.5% market share in 2023.

“Increasing Consumption of Poultry Products: Supplement the sales of STPP”

The poultry industry is rapidly growing in recent years due to the higher demand for poultry products globally.

  • In 2019 the global consumption of poultry products stood at 128.8 MMT (Million Metric Tons) which observed 3.57% growth in 2021 and stands at 133.4 MM which fuels the demand for sodium tripolyphosphate.

In processed poultry products, food-grade sodium tripolyphosphate serves various functions. It helps to raise pH, boost ionic strength, and react with protein to enhance the functional myofibrillar protein in poultry's water-holding capacity. STPP maintains the poultry's original flavor and color. Ionic strength is boosted by STPP, which also extracts myofibrillar protein.

Protein develops a stickiness that becomes a natural binder of moisture and meat pieces that is important to the processing of products, such as chicken rolls. Due to all of such characteristics, STPP is dominantly used in the processing of poultry products which is driving the market’s growth.

“Rise in Sodium Tripolyphosphate Applications Across Various Industries: Drives the Market”

One of the major factors propelling the worldwide sodium tripolyphosphate market is the increase in STPP applications in various industries. Since sodium tripolyphosphate is a raw material for many end-use sectors, the growth of such end-use industries drives the demand for STPP.

Further, due to its slow-down deterioration and it also provides meat and seafood a fresh appearance, sodium tripolyphosphate is widely utilized in the food processing industry. Thus, pullulating demand for processed food augments the STPP growth.

In addition, STPP enhances the detergent's ability to react with the fibers of clothes and aids in foaming and bubbling. As a result, "detergents" are listed as the primary application for this by the majority of chemical manufacturers. Other than this it is used in water treatment as well as in other applications too, which are expected to drive the market in the upcoming period.

“Availability of Suitable and Economic Alternative Products to Hamper the Market’s Growth”

The availability of an effective phosphorus-free detergent builder to restrain the market’s growth. Sodium diacetate is an alternative to STPP which performs identically to STPP. Currently, it is STPP's best alternative. It is far more environmentally friendly than STPP and has better solubility in water, also in cold water than STPP. STPP caused major pollution. Compared to STPP, the cost of Complex Sodium Disilicate is significantly less. With no changes to the machinery, it can be used in the same way as STPP.

In addition, polysaccharides are one of the less expensive substitutes for sodium tripolyphosphate in poultry products. Polysaccharides combine various proteins and fibers frequently, are effective at binding water, and can frequently hold almost as much water in a product. This factor is anticipated to hamper the market growth of sodium tripolyphosphate over the forecast period.

Country-wise Insights

Will the high demand for Sodium Tripolyphosphate in the U.S. Drive the Sodium Tripolyphosphate Market?

The United States sodium tripolyphosphate market registered a CAGR of 4.4% over the 2023-2033 forecast period. Because of the rising use of cleaning products, the United States is anticipated to hold significant potential for sodium tripolyphosphate sales over the coming years.

Currently, the use of such cleaning products rapidly growing in the country. STPP is commonly used in soaps and detergents due to its properties.

Why is the China Sodium Tripolyphosphate Market Expected to Be Highly Lucrative?

Why is Powder Form Sodium Tripolyphosphate Highly Preferred?

Powder form STPP is more widely used than granular form STPP. Demand for powder form STPP is rising rapidly because it is used on large scale in food processing, detergent manufacturing, and others. The powder form is easily mixed and processed in any process as compared to granules. Due to its use as an emulsifier, binder, or stabilizer STPP’s powder form projects better performance, thus, gaining high traction.

Owing to the above-mentioned factors, the demand for powder form STPP is expected to expand at a CAGR of 4.6% over the Projected period.

How Food Processing Industry Drives the STPP Market’s Growth?

The demand created by the food processing industry primarily drives the sodium tripolyphosphate market. Demand for STPP is generated by the consistently rising output and consumption of food and beverages. The main application of STPP is as a food additive. In addition to preserving the natural color of meat and fish products and enhancing their texture, STPP aids in the retention of moisture.

It serves as an emulsifier and aids in preventing the fat and crumbling of meat, fish, or poultry after heating. The food processing sector has experienced remarkable growth in the last couple of years and is also projected to witness noteworthy market growth in the coming years. Owing to the above-mentioned factors, the demand for sodium tripolyphosphate from food processing is expected to grow at a CAGR of 4.5% for the projected period.
