Asia-Pacific is the Fastest Growing Region

 Asia-Pacific is expected to witness a significant increase in the demand for anti-caking agents over the forecast period, owing to the rising population and increasing industrial output in China, India, and Japan. North America and Europe are high mature markets with demand expected to be driven by the application of anti-caking agents in processed foods. Several regulations implemented by the European Food Safety Authority, to restrict the development of anti-caking agents, are expected to challenge the growth of the European market. Growing demand for processed food in Brazil and Argentina, coupled with high demand for dairy products, is expected to complement the growth of the South American market over the forecast period.
