This industry research report identifies Archer Daniels Midland (ADM), Bunge, Cargill, DuPont, Lipoid, and Stern-Wywiol Gruppe as the key vendors in the global lecithin market. This industry research report also presents a competitive analysis of the market by application (food and beverages, animal feed, and pharmaceuticals), by source (soy lecithin, sunflower lecithin, and egg lecithin), and by geography (the Americas, APAC, and EMEA).

Overview of the global lecithin market

Market research analysts at Technavio predict that the global lecithin market will grow steadily at a CAGR of close to 6% by 2021. This market research analysis identifies the increased awareness about the need for a healthy lifestyle as one of the primary growth factors for this market. Individuals across the globe are becoming increasingly concerned about the safety of the food that they consume. This rising concerns toward a healthy lifestyle are driving the demand for nutrient-rich foods, beverages, and supplements that contain lecithin. This also increases the demand for lecithin in the pharmaceutical industry as they can be used for preventive purposes as well as in the treatment of diseases related to liver, neurological disorders, cholesterol level, and also for therapeutic purposes.

The rising prominence of private labels is one of the latest trends that will gain traction in the lecithin market in the coming years. The market share of private label products is significantly increasing across the globe. Private label brands offer lecithin at prices lower than the price of global brands and without promotions which have led to the switching of price-conscious consumers from branded products to the comparatively low-priced private label brands.

Competitive landscape and key vendors

The lecithin market is fragmented due to the presence of numerous large and small vendors. The vendors in the market compete based on factors including quality, price, innovation, reputation, and distribution. It is crucial for vendors to distinguish their product offerings through a clear and unique value proposition to survive in this competitive environment. The intense competition among the vendors, coupled with rapid technological changes constitutes a significant risk factor to the growth of the vendors in this market space.

The leading vendors in the market are -

  • Archer Daniels Midland (ADM)

Segmentation by product type and analysis of the lecithin market

During 2016, the food and beverages segment accounted for the major shares of the lecithin market. Lecithin has the ability to form liposomes by enclosing oil droplets in a double layer of phosphatidylcholine. This allows flavors to be compressed and transported, giving low-fat foods a more intense flavor. Additionally, lecithin is also in the food industry as an emulsifier and dispersing agent, separating agent, an anti-spatter additive for fats and light margarine, and antioxidant, which helps food remain fresh longer.

  • Americas
  • APAC
  • EMEA
