Market Dynamics

  • Calcium propionate is widely used in the food industry due to its effectiveness as a mold and fungus inhibitor and affordability. It has a broad antibacterial activity to mold bacteria and yeast bacteria, inhibiting the propagation of microorganisms, and preventing feed molding, which can be used as a fungicide on food and feed and a preservative for bread and pastries.

  • It’s a preferred antimicrobial because unlike cultured wheat and cultured whey, it does not contain the top 8 allergens in the US. Calcium propionate is Halal and Kosher certified which expands the application range. The benefits of Calcium propionate over other alternative preservatives drive the demand for the Calcium propionate market.

  • In developing countries, consumption of baked goods is expected to increase rapidly due to lifestyle changes fuelled by economic development which would increase the demand for preservative ingredients like calcium propionate.

  • Calcium propionate is not a clean-label ingredient.

  • The launch of clean label preservatives & mold inhibitors is a significant threat to the Calcium propionate market. In October 2018, McDonald’s removed calcium propionate from its buns since it is an artificial preservative. These trends could hamper the growth of the calcium propionate market.
