Furthermore, growing awareness of wellness and growing consumption requests of low -fat dietary food is further driving the emulsifier market. The rapid growth of the food and beverage industry along with the changing consumer's preference for, texture, quality, and nutritional value is showing a positive change in the emulsifier business between the forecast period.

However, due to demand for products based on the season leads to fluctuating the raw material cost for the manufacturing of natural emulsifiers which end up reducing industrial profitability on a global scale. Before COVID-19 consumers were ready to pay a higher amount to get a supreme quality of food product and hence the manufactures opted for the best ingredient by keeping in mind the quality. However post COVID-19, now the consumer is more concerned about the quality and hygiene of the product resulting in increasing the cost and hence affecting the demand of the packed food due to both high price and contamination issues. Therefore turned out to be the major restraint issues of the 2020-2020 period.
