Europe Fumaric Acid Market Dynamics

Food Processing Industry in Europe

One of the most important industries within Industrials is food processing and handling, comprising three key subsectors: processing, packaging, and commercial food service equipment. Over the last five years, it has outpaced the broader Industrials industry, representing a $100 billion market. Regarding jobs and value-added, the food and beverage industry is the largest manufacturing sector in the E.U.; trading with non-EU countries is also a plus. The E.U. has a significant trade surplus in food, and E.U. culinary specialties are well-liked worldwide. E.U. food and drink exports have more than doubled in the last decade, reaching over USD 94.53 billion and contributing to an almost USD 31.51 billion positive balance. The E.U.'s food regulation is largely harmonized, and the industry benefits significantly from the E.U. Single Market's potential.


The food processing industry in Europe is well-developed, with 294,000 companies accounting for 15.2% of all European industry and generating €1,109 billion in revenue. France leads the way in this field, with 55,810 food processing industry enterprises, €170 billion in revenue, and 14 percent of the total European food industry. Wholesale (food & drink) is the most common business in the category (44%), followed by farmed raw materials and livestock (12%), drinks (10%), and meat processing (10%). (8 percent ). 'Carbonates,' 'Juices,' and 'Energy drinks' were the top three non-alcoholic beverage product categories sold among ESM member states, accounting for 44, 30, and 11 percent of total non-alcoholic beverage sales, respectively. In 89 percent of ESM member states, 'carbonates' was the most popular product category. Other product categories that made the top three were 'Ready-to-Drink Tea' and 'Concentrates,' which were sold in 19 and 11 percent of ESM member states, respectively, and contributed 6 and 5% to overall non-alcoholic beverage sales in Europe. Thus these potential developments in the food and processing industry in Europe are expected to drive the Fumaric Acid Market.


Market Restraints

Stringent Government Regulations and Health Hazards

Food safety is of paramount importance. Consumers must have trust and assurance that the food they purchase will not injure them or cause them harm. Only safe food and feed can be placed on the Union market or fed to food-producing animals, according to the General Food Law Regulation. It also specifies basic standards for determining the safety of food and feed. Additives are ingredients used in the manufacture of food for various purposes, such as preservation, colouring, sweetening, and so on. Any material not generally consumed as a food in itself and not usually employed as a characteristic constituent of food, whether or not it has nutritive value," according to European Union legislation, is a food additive. They are substances added to food for technological purposes during its manufacture, processing, preparation, treatment, packaging, transportation, or storage. 26 "technological purposes" are defined in E.U. regulation; the Scientific Committee on Food (SCF) and the European Food Safety Authority have evaluated the safety of all currently approved food additives (EFSA). The additives are on the E.U. list whose proposed usage was considered safe.


The E.U. Rules on Flavorings and Certain Food Ingredients with Flavoring Properties promote the smooth operation of the internal market while also providing high levels of human health and consumer safety. Regulation (E.C.) No 2065/2003 defines a framework for the safety assessment and authorization of smoke flavouring primary products in order to ensure a high degree of human health protection, consumer interests, and the efficient operation of the internal market.

Lead, cadmium, and chromium-based pigments are hazardous to spray painters. Spray painters who work with isocyanates in polyurethane coatings or aliphatic amines in epoxy paint systems are at a higher risk of developing occupational asthma. Biocides are routinely used in the manufacture of paints. Pigments, solvents, and vehicles are the three types of chemicals used in paints. The bleaching of the pulp is the first step in the papermaking process. Depending on the type of paper, different additives are used, and the cooking process is contained using a negative-pressure furnace prevents gas from escaping. The sulfate process, also known as the Kraft process, is the alkaline digestion of lignin that produces hydrogen sulfide and mercaptans. The sulfite process is acid digestion that creates sulfuric acid and SO2. Aspergillus fumigatus-induced hypersensitivity pneumonitis (H.P.) has been observed in chip unloaders.


Lard, butter, cheese, powdered milk, sausage, bacon, frankfurters, almonds, and potato chips all contain fumaric acid as an antioxidant to prevent rancidity. It can be used to provide the acidity needed when sodium benzoate is employed as a preservative in the preservation of green foods and fish. In beverages, and baking powders, it can be used as a substitute for tartaric acid; in fruit drinks, replace or partially replace citric acid.
