Thus, Future Market Insights has prepared the report 'Salt Content Reduction Ingredients Market: Global Industry Analysis (2012 – 2016) and Opportunity Assessment (2017 – 2027)' which estimates that the salt content reduction ingredients market is expected to be worth more than US$ 7 billion by 2027.
Type – Monosodium Glutamates Offer Best of Both Worlds Making them Sought After
Replacing table salt with monosodium glutamates reduces the sodium content by 40% without taste loss as MSG contains approx. 1/3rd the sodium. Glutamates can reduce the salt content in bakery products, sauces, and seasonings while enhancing the savoury umami flavour. Glutamates contribute only 2% of total sodium in the average diet even when MSG is widely used which explains its dominance in the salt content reduction ingredients market. Glutamates are predicted to retain a market share of almost 2/3rd the salt content reduction ingredients market by type at the end of the forecast period.
Application – Meat & Poultry Segment Need Salt Content Reduction Ingredients Most
The meat & poultry segment is on track to account for a quarter of the salt content reduction ingredients market by end 2027 and could gain 60 BPS by then. A number of salt content reduction ingredients such as yeast extracts and potassium chloride are utilized in meat & poultry products. The substitution of sodium chloride with potassium chloride in meat can go a long way in reducing its sodium content. The meat & poultry segment is anticipated to have a value of just under US$ 700 million in 2017 alone, making it an opportunity too large to ignore.
Region – Focus on North America and APEJ Salt Content Reduction Ingredients Market
The North America salt content reduction ingredients market is poised to remain strong, largely due to stringent government policies and regulations pertaining to voluntary sodium reduction in the US. A much higher growth is likely in the APEJ region with a surging demand for processed food to cater to the massive continental populations of both China and India. A massive 140 BPS growth should help APEJ be worth over US$ 1.1 billion in 2027 and record an exponential CAGR of 10.5% for the period.
