According to Stratistics MRC, the Global De-oiled Lecithin Market is accounted for $200.3 million in 2022 and is expected to reach $351.1 million by 2028 growing at a CAGR of 9.8% during the forecast period. De-oiled lecithin is oil-free and high in phospholipid components. It is mostly oil-free or has very little oil, and it includes a lot of polyunsaturated fatty acids. Descaling lecithin is available in powder or granular form. The product is available in powder or granule form, which is easy to handle and compactly packed for storage and shipment. Highly dispersible powder or granular lecithin has a competitive edge over other liquid forms of lecithin.

According to the UN Comtrade, India exported bread, pastry, cakes, and other bakery products worth USD 407.6 million, which was higher than the previous year's exports valued at USD 346.8 million. Hence, the rise in sales of bakery products has been driving the lecithin market across the region.

Market Dynamics:


Increasing consumer understanding of clean label products

As more individuals choose healthier lives, sales of natural and clean label health products are expanding. Natural and organic health products are thought to be more reliable and of higher quality. Many people are concerned about conventional farming's environmental impact and prefer organic farming methods. Furthermore, organic food and beverages do not contain any synthetic food additives. This creates a new market for providers of natural food additives in underdeveloped nations. The need for natural food additives is increasing as the organic food industry expands. Consumers are growing more health-conscious, and they want food that is devoid of synthetic substances and additives. De-oiled lecithin is a natural alternative to synthetic emulsifiers and stabilisers, making it a popular choice among organic and natural food makers.


Volatile costs of raw materials

The influence on production costs is one of the key issues provided by changes in raw material prices. When the price of soybeans rises, so does the cost of producing de-oiled lecithin, which can result in higher production costs for manufacturers. As a result, final products containing de-oiled lecithin may have to be more expensive. Consumers may be hesitant to pay these increased prices, which may impair demand for these items and, as a result, producers' profitability. Manufacturers may need to alter their manufacturing procedures as raw material costs vary, which can affect the quality and uniformity of the completed product.


Emerging markets and shifting consumer habits

Consumer desire for low-fat goods is rapidly growing, and marketing initiatives to promote their use and health benefits are being created which is used as a low-fat dressing, catching the attention of firms looking to produce low-fat food items. Demand for low-fat goods may be driven by the increase of processed food manufacturing and innovation in practically all categories, such as meat products, dairy, and bakery and confectionery items. However, demand for de-oiled lecithin is expected to grow steadily in early adopting countries such as Japan, and exponentially in new and emerging markets such as Australia and other Asia Pacific countries.


Stringent government regulations

The de-oiled lecithin industry is gaining traction across the world. It is rapidly being employed in food, feed, healthcare, and personal care, directly influencing customers' health or interests. As a result, because it is used in critical industries such as food, drinks, healthcare, and personal care, the de-oiled lecithin market is controlled to safeguard consumers' interests. The strict government rules that monitor, manage, and regulate the production, distribution, and consumption of de-oiled lecithin will impede market growth.

Covid-19 Impact

The COVID-19 pandemic raised consumer demand for functional food items, which resulted in a rise in demand for de-oiled lecithin in the manufacturing process, assisting in market growth during the pandemic period. In addition food items containing de-oiled lecithin are expected to be in high demand throughout the post-pandemic period as well.

The soybean segment is expected to be the largest during the forecast period

The soybean segment is estimated to have a lucrative growth, due to its utilization as lubricant and an emulsifier and it is also known to offer antioxidants when added to meals. Soy lecithin also aids in the preservation of food flavours. Soybean is popular among de-oiled lecithin producers due to its simplicity of supply. Furthermore, in comparison to other commodities, the extraction of de-oiled lecithin from soybean is inexpensive, making it a cost-effective endeavour for producers. As a result, soybean development will benefit from the expanding personal care and pharmaceutical sectors.

The food & beverages segment is expected to have the highest CAGR during the forecast period

The food & beverages segment is anticipated to witness the highest CAGR growth during the forecast period, due to its natural preservative property that extends the shelf life of baked goods. It aids in the preservation of moisture in baked goods, extending their shelf life. It preserves food flavour and includes antioxidants, which contribute to its growing usage in the food business. It is used in packaged foods as an emulsifier. De-oiled Lecithin is currently used to enhance the consistency, flavour, shelf-life, and texture of vegan food. The increasing usage of de-oiled lecithin in the food sector drives the segment's expansion.

Region with highest share:

Asia Pacific is projected to hold the highest market share during the forecast period owing to the huge agricultural sectors of India, China, and Japan, which offer raw materials such as soybean and sunflower for lecithin synthesis, the Asia Pacific region now leads the de-oiled lecithin industry. Livestock is also prevalent in Asia Pacific, providing an extra source of income for the region's sizable farming community. Furthermore, because of the region's low labour costs and favourable manufacturing and business environments, lecithin extraction is a cost-effective process, attracting major market players.

Region with highest CAGR:

North America is projected to have the highest CAGR over the forecast period, owing to to increased demand from the food and baking industries in nations such as the United States and Canada. Moreover the increased demand for personal care goods and cosmetics in the nations, on the other hand, is predicted to raise demand for de-oiled lecithin as well as the presence of multiple top companies in these nations may further assist to future growth in the de-oiled lecithin market.
