Food emulsifiers such as Acetylated Monoglycerides (AGM) are mainly used in baked goods such as cakes and other food formulations. AGM is typically added during the initial phase, i.e., liquid phase or batter. They are also used in fillings, frostings, and whipped cream to help stabilize and extend their life. In vegetable fat-based creams, acetylated monoglycerides improve foaming and whipping properties.
Acetylated monoglyceride usage as plasticizers & lubricants and additives for plastics & rubber is also prominent. Utilization of AGM in finished products enhances the performance and appearance of the products. It has humectant properties that make it an ideal ingredient for cosmetics and personal care products.
The global market for acetylated monoglycerides is projected to provide an absolute opportunity of US$ 10.7 Mn in 2022 and expand at 4% CAGR through 2032.
“Market Riding on Increased Pharmaceutical Application of Emulsifiers”
In the pharmaceutical industry, emulsifiers are recommended for unsaturated lipid components as they are derived from vegetable oils. Emulsifiers are used as dispersants and wetting agents for calamine, zinc oxide, and penicillin, and act as softeners, bodying agents, humectants, and stabilizers in pharmaceutical creams. Some emulsifiers are used as inactive substances that provide a medium for drug or tablet production.
Wholly acetylated monoglycerides can be used to lower cholesterol levels as well as neutral fats in the human blood. Hence, they are used in the production of pharmaceutical compositions. They are also used in diet food products targeted to reduce cholesterol levels.
“Rising Need for Plasticizers Driving Demand for Acetylated Monoglycerides”
Plastic additives are ingredients that are added to polymer resins to improve their durability and heat sensitivity, as well as impart various functionalities. These additives also enhance the processability, performance, and appearance of end products.
Plastic additives have found widespread applications in packaging, automotive, consumer goods, and other applications such as furniture, construction, and agriculture.
Plasticizers are one of the most commonly used plastic additives. Demand for plastic additives is increasing due to the replacement of conventional products in the construction, infrastructure, and automobile sectors with plastic products. Demand is further propelled by high consumer preference for plastic products owing to their lower prices, better functionality, and increased durability.
“R&D Investments & Acquisitions to Drive ACETEM Market Growth”
Research & development play a vital role in the acetylated monoglycerides market. Producers are investing in intensive research & development to extend the application of products. In recent years, the utilization of food emulsifiers such as acetylated monoglycerides has grown due to their various functional properties.
Major companies are also opting for mergers and acquisitions to expand their emulsifier portfolios and technology collaborations. Innovations in the application of acetylated monoglycerides will provide lucrative growth opportunities to players in the global market.
“Personal Care Industry to Offering Lucrative Opportunities for Acetylated Monoglyceride Suppliers”
Over the past two decades, the cosmetics industry has evolved in terms of product offerings as well as the ingredients used in various cosmetic products. Owing to the several side effects associated with the use of conventional emulsifiers, manufacturers are now coming up with several other types of safe emulsifiers for the production of cosmetic products.
Due to growing environmental safety concerns regarding the usage of harmful emulsifiers, consumers are looking for products that are safe and made from natural ingredients. This is offering promising opportunities to manufacturers of acetylated monoglycerides.
“Volatile Oil Market Increasing Headaches for Acetylated Monoglyceride Manufacturers”
Food emulsifiers are produced through alcoholysis or the direct esterification of edible fatty acids that are derived from animal or vegetable sources with polyols. Esters of mono & diglycerides are derived from palm oil, castor, soybean, and other plant-based oils. The slightest fluctuation in oil prices will stifle the production of the esters of mono & diglycerides.
An increase in the prices of oils is attributable to many factors, including the shifting of demand from the food industry to the fuel industry, labor issues due to lockdowns in many plant-based oil-producing countries such as Indonesia and Malaysia, climatic impact on soybean producing areas, and imposing of import duties on palm oil in India. All these factors have a direct impact on the production of acetylated monoglycerides.
“Stringent Regulatory Norms Governing the Industry”
Additives, although used in minor quantities, are very critical in terms of performance in end-use materials, be it food, plastic, or any other product. This makes it imperative for customers who are using these additives to validate their quality and performance thoroughly.
In addition to performance, since many of these additives are used in food, feeds, and food packaging materials, they also need to comply with stringent health and environment-related regulations globally. Any failure in quality standards may lead to the loss of reputation and goodwill of a company, order cancellations, and customer loss.
Food products and their ingredients, food contact packaging materials, pharma packaging, feed nutrition additives, and cosmetic substances are subject to high regulatory standards.
Similar regulations also apply to plastic additives used in manufacturing packaging materials used for food packaging and medical products. Expensive and lengthy validation tests create a high entry barrier for any company while targeting new customers, geographies, and applications.
