This report covers the impact of COVID-19 on this global market

According to Stratistics MRC, the Global Food Antioxidants Market is accounted for $3.2 billion in 2023 and is expected to reach $5.6 billion by 2030 growing at a CAGR of 8.2% during the forecast period. Antioxidants are compounds that prevent oxidation, which could damage organisms' cells and produce free radicals. They can be obtained naturally from a range of fruits and vegetables, such as raspberries, spinach, and eggplant, or they can be manufactured artificially and added to a variety of foods. It is commonly used as an additive for fuel, plastic, and latex, in addition to being a preservative in many processed food products.

According to AP Organics Limited, it helps reduce high blood cholesterol and is effective for treating anxiety, managing sugar levels, helpful for patients of hypothyroidism, and plays an important role in preventing many lifestyle diseases.

Market Dynamics:


Growth in the prepared food industries

Foods that have been processed to increase shelf life, reduce rancidity, and make them simpler to use are referred to as prepared foods. There is a gradual rise in the number of working women, the prepared food business is anticipated to experience significant expansion in the upcoming years, which would benefit the market for food antioxidants. Demand for convenience meals has increased as a result of rising disposable incomes brought on by economic expansion, particularly in developing nations like China and India.


Health concerns

The health risks associated with the consumption of synthetic antioxidants present a significant obstacle for the food antioxidant sector. Often, phenolic antioxidants are found in dehydrated and dried foods. During processing and storage, this antioxidant aids in preventing lipid oxidation. Consumers are concerned about synthetic food antioxidants utilized due to adverse reactions, even if diverse food products (including beverages) pass through multiple quality, safety, and regulatory demands. More than a million people with digestive problems may be allergic to or sensitive to phenols, according to a US FDA assessment.


Popularity of products with a long shelf life

Around the world, consumers' preference for ready-to-eat meals and snacks is rising. Food antioxidants are frequently required for these items to preserve their freshness and shelf life, which offers business potential for antioxidant producers. Consumers and authorities are concerned about the safety of food products and seek to ensure that they are free of hazardous contaminants. Antioxidants can aid in maintaining the quality and freshness of food products, lowering the danger of infection and boosting customer confidence.


Low permitted usage limits and strict regulatory compliance

Regulations for food additives and food antioxidants are not widely known among food additives. There are tougher laws about the production, registration, and use of food additives as a result of rising health awareness and supporting research about the toxicity and health issues produced by a few food additives. Several regulatory authorities are currently establishing strict guidelines for the legal use of food additives.

Covid-19 Impact:

The market for meat and poultry was severely impacted by the COVID-19 epidemic since there was a severe shortage of these food items due to the closure of numerous food factories. In addition, due to the possibility of virus transmission through meat during the pandemic, people tended to avoid meat and cattle food products. However, the consumption of packaged foods that could be kept for a longer amount of time increased due to the mounting fear caused by the closure of a large number of local food stores. The COVID-19 strike has had a significant influence on several locations, including Asia Pacific.

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

Due to the rising use of powder-based antioxidants in food products, the dry segment commanded the largest share throughout the projection period. Powders of a technical grade are widely used in many food products. The powder reduces the negative effects of free radicals and may substantially reduce the harm they can do. Additionally, the majority of food antioxidants come in powder, tablet, flakes, and granular forms. Because dry antioxidants are so simple to use, store, and travel, they are highly favored by customers.

The meat and poultry segment is expected to have the highest CAGR during the forecast period

Owing to the increased consumption of meat and food products associated with it around the world, the meat and poultry application category is predicted to grow profitably over an extrapolated period. Humans need a variety of protein sources in their diets, and meat and poultry are regarded as excellent sources. Furthermore, human bodies receive a necessary amount of protein from eating meat and poultry products. Red meat, such as that from pork, lamb, and beef, makes up the meat portion most frequently.

Region with largest share:

Due to the growing populations of nations like China, India, and Japan, the Asia-Pacific region held the largest proportion of the market throughout the projection period. China produced 1.56 trillion USD worth of food, making it the world's top food producer, according to the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO). The country's expanding population is the main driver of China's food industry. The fact that India is the second-most populous nation in Asia also contributes to the rise in food consumption.

Region with highest CAGR:

Owing to the rising demand from food manufacturers in industrialized countries to relocate their production facilities to emerging economies, where labor costs are low and establishment and production expenses are cheap, Asia-Pacific dominated the highest CAGR over the stipulated period of time. Moreover, with the rising need for natural and synthetic food antioxidants for the production of various food products, has contributed to market revenue growth in the region.
