Market Trends of United States Anti-Caking Industry
This section covers the major market trends shaping the US Anti-Caking Market according to our research experts:
Calcium Compounds Holds a Significant Share
Calcium compounds lead the demand for food anti-caking agents in the country due to their functionality and high aptness in the product. For instance, Calcium Silicate (CaSiO3), a commonly used anti-caking agent, added to e.g. table salt, absorbs both water and oi. Calcium silicate is a free-flow and anticaking agent used to prevent caking and lumping of powdered food products during production, processing, storage, and customer use. The calcium silicate and calcium carbonate both are actively found application baking powder. Thus wide application and varied functionality of calcium compounds have resulted in occupying significant share in the market.
Increasing Demand For Anti-Caking in Animal Feed Industry
The incorporation of anti-caking agents in the animal feed industry is likely to achieve the fastest growth rate during the forecast period. As the American livestock industry is growing at a high rate, the requirement for animal feed in increasing which in turn helps feed additives such as anti-caking market to grow. In poultry and cattle, the anti-caking agent is used in feed to stop caking and agglomeration and increase the flow properties of feed ingredients.
Leading manufacturers are focusing to innovate their offerings of caking reduction agents. For instance, Kemin Industries, Inc. introduced KALLSIL™ is an enhanced zeolite-based mineral that supports performance by reducing the harmful effects of naturally-occurring fungal metabolites, and caking reactions found in livestock and poultry feeds.
