Global Emulsifiers Market: Demand Analysis and Growth Forecast
Emulsifier is a molecule that is a combination of hydrophobic and hydrophilic part, which is used to promote stability between water and oil by reducing the interfacial tension. It act as an aerating agent, starch complexing agent, crystallisation inhibitor, and it interacts with other food ingredients. These emulsifiers inhibit clump of residues, redeposit of residue on surface, and allow the residue to precipitate. Attributing to recent developments in emulsifiers, an IndustryARC market research report projects profitable progression in the emulsifiers market during the forecast period of 2018-2023.
