The thriving demand for efficient key nutrients in crop and livestock production will positively impact the Western Europe food phosphate market expansion in the forthcoming years. The growing emphasis on health and nutrition has prompted the requirement for various phosphorus acid derivates. Driven by this, phosphates have emerged largely popular in regulating the acidity of foods while increasing the effect of gelling as well as thickening agents by binding iron, calcium, magnesium, and heavy metal ions in solid complexes.

Phosphates are increasingly needed for skeletal mineralization, and their chronic deficiency can give rise to rickets and osteomalacia. They are known to play a key role in the activation of enzymes, regulation of gene transcription, intracellular energy storage and the maintenance of normal pH in extracellular fluids. The escalating concerns over the future scarcity of phosphorus and the scaling number of EU-funded projects on nutrient sustainability as well as phosphorus recycling will lead to increased product demand in the region.

Western Europe food phosphate market size will reach an annual valuation of over USD 65.5 million by 2027, quotes Global Market Insights Inc.

Mentioned below are a few prominent factors shaping the growth curve of this regional business space in the near future.

#1 Sodium phosphates to record higher consumption

Sodium phosphates are widely incorporated as food additives for intensifying flavors, keeping the meats moist while preventing the formation of crystals in canned tuna. They are also commonly employed as quality improvers or nutrition enhancers in seafood, meat, dairy products, baked goods, and beverages.

The presence of stringent regulations pertaining to the use of this phosphorus derivative in beverages will also accelerate the Western Europe food phosphate industry growth. However, what makes them so popular in the region is their growing penetration as preservatives, acidifying & emulsifying agents, and acidity buffers.

#2 Wide scope in seafood products

Phosphates record significant application in the seafood industry to cater to multiple functional uses on account of their unique ability to restore the natural water-binding capacities of raw muscle proteins. In fact, phosphate treatment on red shrimps delivers a simple and economical solution for increasing the freezing capacity and improving water retention as well as product quality.

Food-grade phosphates also help in retaining the moisture and flavor while limiting lipid oxidation, shelf-life extension and cryoprotection. The rising consumption of fish and the magnifying interest in sustainable seafood in the U.K. will also drive the Western Europe food phosphate market dynamics.

#3 U.K. as a major market

The growing dependency of the regional farmers on various phosphorus products for fertilizer feeds, and foods will significantly influence the demand for food phosphates across the U.K. in the long run. The increasing consumer interest in processed and packaged foods is also likely to play an essential role in product penetration.

The rising number of research activities for improving the use of phosphorus in the country will add positive impetus to the market development.

In a nutshell, the surging importance of phosphorus derivatives as essential minerals has amplified their adoption in dietary supplements. The growing number of phosphorus fertilizer imports will also influence the Western Europe food phosphate industry outlook.
