The natural food preservatives market is expected to be valued at USD 435.2 Mn in 2022 and is projected to reach USD 856.1 Mn by 2032, growing at a CAGR of 7% from 2022 to 2032.

A growing preference for foods with a longer shelf life is the result of increased demand for convenience goods and an increased focus on organic food products. This has increased demand for natural food preservatives across the board. By 2028, sales of natural food preservatives are expected to reach US$ 796.5 million, up from US$ 484.2 million at the end of 2018.One of the key factors boosting revenue growth in the global sector is the fast rising consumption of packaged and processed foods.

As a result of urbanisation and fast-paced lifestyles, people's eating habits have changed since they find it more convenient to consume packaged and ready-to-eat food items. To increase shelf life and prevent decomposition, processed food and beverage commodities must be preserved using appropriate methods and secure additives. Natural food preservatives are therefore more in demand.

The harmful impact of chemical ingredients used in the preparation and processing of food and beverage products is creating a shift in the F&B industry towards the use of natural food ingredients. Owing to the harmful health problems caused by chemical additives, F&B manufacturers are moving away from synthetic food preservatives and incorporating safer, natural food preservatives in their products. Further, imposition of stringent regulations by the governments of several countries across the globe against the use of synthetic food ingredients has led to a ban on synthetic food preservatives in the F&B industry. This is another key driver pushing revenue growth of the global natural food preservatives market.

Natural Food Preservatives Market Not Devoid of Challenges; Manufacturers Struggle to Contain Costs and Battle Latest and More Advanced Food Preservation Technologies

Although employing natural food preservatives is advantageous for public health, pricing can be a significant barrier to the market’s long-term expansion. Due to the significant costs involved in processing and creating natural food preservatives, they are more expensive than their synthetic counterparts. Due to cost considerations, a number of mid-sized and small F&B industry firms limit their production to the use of synthetic and chemical-based preservatives. The need to keep manufacturing costs under control for producers of packaged and processed foods is a significant revenue growth inhibitor in the global market for natural food preservatives.

Raw material pricing is another revenue puller. Natural food preservatives obtained from vegetables, fruits, and certain types of plants are priced according to the availability and production of raw material. Fluctuating prices of raw material impact operational efficiencies in the natural food preservatives market. Impact of unfavourable weather conditions on the availability of raw material further leads to inconsistent output, as most of the natural food preservatives are sourced from plants.

Another challenge being witnessed in the global market for natural food preservatives is the emergence of newer and more advanced food preservation technologies that might render traditional preservation techniques obsolete in the near future. Techniques such as High-pressure Processing (HPP) – a cold pasteurisation technique that increases shelf life of food products and Pulsed Electric Fields (PEF) – a non-thermal technique that protects food from microbial spoilage through electric pulses are fast gaining traction in the natural food preservatives market. Older methods of preserving food using natural plant-derived preservatives is slowly losing significance, and this is expected to restrain revenue growth of the natural food preservatives market to a certain extent.
