Global Lecithin Market – Drivers and restraints:

The growing preference for low-fat foods and the demand for ready-to-eat and packaged foods in the market in several countries are factors that drive growth in the global lecithin market during the foreseen period. The growing demand for natural products in Asia-Pacific offers a series of opportunities to the various players in the global market. The growing demand for personal care and cosmetic products based on natural ingredients should also lead to a significant increase in sales of the ingredients used in these products. Due to the growing popularity of lecithin and the growing awareness of its benefits, it is expected that the global market will generate solid growth rate during the forecast period. Due to recent concerns about GMOs (genetically modified organisms) and increased awareness of food allergies, products without GMOs are expected to grow significantly, generating a strong demand for products with lecithin.

The presence of a significantly large number of players in the market creates intense competition. Lecithin is extracted from soy, sunflower, canola, rapeseed, eggs and, sometimes, shrimp. The percentage of lecithin in all raw materials is much lower; with a range of 0.3 to 1.0%, which requires rigorous processing and high volumes of raw material, resulting in high processing costs. These are some of the restrictions that affect the global market for lecithin.
