Increase in consumer awareness & health concerns
Changes in consumer preferences and increase in awareness of the health benefits of phospholipids has been observed due to globalization. The increase in consumer awareness has resulted in an increase in demand for release agents that are used by manufacturers of supplement products. The increase in the demand for pan dividing oil has led to an increase in the demand for release agents. Release agent manufacturers are focusing on the quality and safety of the products, which are mandated by several governments to be clinically tested and approved to be utilized to produce end-use products
Vegetable oils are the base used for the production of release agents; hence, the prices of the release agent products depend on the market price of vegetable oils. The ever-increasing prices of vegetable oils pose a restraint to the release agent manufacturers, and by extension, the release agents market.
Key participants in the supply chain of the release agents are the product manufacturers, end-use industries, and raw material suppliers. The key players that are profiled in the report include ADM (US), Avatar Corporation (US), Par-Way Tryson (US), AAK AB (Sweden), and Associated British Foods (UK).
