Key Market Trends

Increase in Demand for Processed Foods

Antimicrobials function principally to prevent or inhibit the growth of microorganisms and, thus, prevent spoilage of food. Antimicrobial agents also include compounds, such as calcium propionate and sorbic acid, which are used in products, such as baked goods, salad dressings, cheeses, margarine, and pickled foods. Antimicrobials are also currently employed as preservatives within the food industry to extend product shelf-life, improve product safety, maintain product quality, reduce processing costs, and increase the ability to distribute products in complex supply chains. The large share of antimicrobials can be attributed to their wide use in many applications, such as dairy and frozen foods, snacks, and convenience foods, among others. Demand for processed foods is one of the drivers for the growth of this segment.


The Bakery Segment Holds a Prominent Share

Changing consumer lifestyles toward healthy living is likely to stimulate the growth of bakery ingredients used in products, such as cakes, biscuits, bread, pastries, and morning goods, which is expected to drive the growth of bakery products in the Italian market. Bakery products are still undergoing development and innovation in terms of healthy ingredients to be included in them. There has been an increasing demand for specialty ingredients in bakery products in Italy.
