Market Leader: Calcium Propionate Market


The calcium propionate market is dominated by a few large players. The key companies engaged in the production of calcium propionate are Niacet Corporation (U.S.), Kemira (Finland), Macco Organiques Inc. (Canada), Perstorp Holdings AB (Sweden), and AB Mauri (U.K.).

The calcium propionate market is growing at a significant pace driven by buoyant demand. Factors such as food & feed safety, rising feed prices, and a penchant for processed foods necessitates the need to ensure zilch food & feed spoilage, which in turn leads to an enhanced shelf life. This translates into a resultant demand for calcium propionate, as an effective antimicrobial agent that prolongs shelf life. However, research in various fields has opened new avenues for the application of calcium propionate. The demand and consumption of calcium propionate is influenced greatly by its application in a variety of specialty and functional foods, several of which are dairy-based. The growth of the convenience food sector also boosts the market demand for the ingredient. Its compatibility with most food ingredients works in favor of calcium propionate.

Niacet, a market leader, continues to expand its distribution network and works to forge a strong supply chain in order to consolidate its presence in the industry.

Other companies compliment their existing product pipeline with new formulations for various other food applications and also build a strong supply chain network by entering into various agreements with traders, distributors, etc. Their main focus lies on emerging economies such as China, India, Brazil, etc. as they are new growth avenues. Manufacturers aim for further investments on expansion, due to the rapidly expanding food and feed production in these regions. It is imperative for the key companies to have a presence in the important growing regions to leverage existing customer relations and venture into new markets. The threat of new entrants is low for this market owing to sourcing and production complexities.
