  1. Cosmetics & Personal Care
    • Chinese Personal Care Ingredients Markets - End-user Survey
      Since April 2006, China has eliminated the consumption tax on skin care and hair care products (not including luxurious skin-care products). It is beneficial for local personal care companies to decrease their product cost, increase investments in R&D, and increase sales volume. These factors are likely to increase personal care ingredients (PCI) consumption.
    • European Market for Vitamins in Personal care
      Europe accounts for the largest share – approximately 37.0 per cent – of the global market for cosmetics and toiletries. The European market for vitamins in personal care is mature and will remain stable as long as there is sustained demand for personal care products. However, the presence of competitive, high-quality imports from Asia Pacific threatens the prospects of vitamin manufacturers in Europe. Vitamin manufacturers, especially those of vitamin E and C are significantly affected due to the imports from Asian countries. Although these manufacturers are yet to monopolise the European market, pricing pressures in the vitamin E and C markets are considerable and are dampening revenue growth rates.
    • Where's the Green? Green Growth Strategies in U.S. Personal Care Chemical Ingredient Markets
      Heightened media attention regarding global warming, product recalls, and the rising cost of energy has had an irreversible affect on consumer awareness concerning health, safety, and energy conservation issues. This in turn is impacting purchasing behavior, which is evident in the near 15 percent annual growth in the natural or green personal care market since the turn of the 21st century. Consequently, the green personal care consumer market is estimated to have had sales of $1.50 billion in 2007 and the near 20 percent annual growth in green and organic new product development among personal care formulators, however, chemical ingredient manufacturers and formulators are not able to meet the increasingly surplus demand for anything green. Frost & Sullivan finds that many chemical manufacturers are falling short in their effort to effectively adopt green marketing practices as an effective growth strategy.
    • U.S. Emulsifiers in Personal Care Markets
      With both the personal care and emulsifiers markets in the United States having reached maturity, the latter market will have to raise the bar on innovation to stay afloat. Its efforts, coupled with the promise shown by segments such as baby care, ethnic hair care, and antiageing, are expected to keep it in the reckoning, despite the market accounting for less than 10 percent of the total personal care ingredients market. It is becoming increasingly apparent that its small size belies its importance in the personal care market, especially with consumers demanding longer shelf life, better performance, and improved texture from their personal care products. Emulsifiers have emerged as the most cost-effective ingredients that can meet these requirements of innovation and enable personal care product manufacturers to cope with dynamic consumer lifestyles, fashions, and trends.
    • U.S. Polymers in Personal Care Market
      The polymers market is marked by increasing R&D investments, cost pressures that are restraining new product development effort, growing downstream pricing pressures that are restraining profit margins, and greater industry consolidation. However, consumers perceive anything green as more healthy and are willing to pay a premium for such products.
  1. Ingredients
    • European Omega 3 and Omega 6 PUFA Ingredients Markets
      The European PUFA ingredients market can be broadly classified into omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids markets. Amongst the two PUFA ingredients, the market for omega-3 fatty acids is more established, experiencing robust growth when compared to the omega-6 fatty acids. The omega-3 PUFA ingredients market in Europe is witnessing a significant growth of 15.9 per cent annually. Proven health benefits, sound scientific back up and self-medication trend have fuelled significant demand for omega-3 fatty acids. Presently, omega-3 fatty acids have emerged as a key market trend with manufacturers seeking to capitalise on its immense potential by including it in functional food and beverage applications.
    • Opportunities for Glycerine Markets within the European Food Industry
      The glycerine market in Europe has undergone considerable change in the past few years, yielding increased revenues for the industry. The current biodiesel fiasco has come as a boon for the glycerine industry, which was experiencing low revenues since 2004. The oversupply of crude glycerine in the market had led to prices plummeting to an all-time low. However, the current scarcity of biodiesel has caused a drastic reduction in the availability of crude glycerine. This has resulted in prices reaching a new high.According to Frost & Sullivan estimates, the supply of refined glycerine in 2007 in Europe stood at 490,000 tonnes and is set to rise to nearly 775,000 tonnes by 2013. Although there is significant demand for glycerine from within Europe, the demand from developing Asian countries, especially China, has grown more rapidly. Improved living standards in this region have been accompanied by heightened demand for glycerine, which is used in personal care products and food. At the same time, the availability of vegetable oils as raw material is another reason for the industry to look towards Asia.
    • Strategic Analysis of Chinese Food Enzymes Markets
      Spurred on by a fast growing processed foods industry and better health consciousness among the Chinese public, the Chinese food enzymes markets have witnessed appreciable growth in recent years. "Going forward, the total Chinese food enzymes market is estimated to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 7.6 percent from 2006 to 2013," says the analyst. "Among the market segments, the Chinese starch and sugar processing enzymes market is the dominant one and accounted for $102.6 million in revenues in 2006."
    • Strategic Analysis of the Australian and New Zealand Nutraceuticals Markets

Industry organizations/associations such as The Omega-3 Centre Inc., National Heart Foundation, The Glycemic Index Limited and Australian Self Medicating Industry, along with market participants, are emphasizing the importance of healthier food alternatives to improve health among Australian and New Zealand consumers.
    • Flax-Based Omegea-3 Alpha Linolenic Acid : The shape of things to come
      Heightened media attention regarding the obesity epidemic in North America, increasedoccurrence of cardiovascular disease and diabetes, and rising health costs have had anirreversible effect on consumer awareness of health-related issues. Particularly, consumersare turning to functional food products as a means to decrease the odds of purchasinghigher-priced medical care and pharmaceuticals in the future. These consumers, who have agrowing interest in food that has tangible health benefits, tend to be relativelyknowledgeable,affluent, and willing to pay for food products that enhance their quality oflife. This in turn is considerably driving the growth of functional foods relative to thegeneral food market. These changes in consumer preferences are evident in the near 10.0percent annual growth of the functional food market since the turn of the 21stcentury.
  1. Livestock
    • Company Profiles - Animal Feed Additive Manufacturers and Suppliers (Part 1)
      The animal feed additives market in South-East Asia was measured with a volume of 107,100 tonnes in 2005, which incorporated amino acids, feed acids and enzymes. The CAGR of volumes within the market is expected to be 7.8 per cent between 2002 and 2012. In revenue generation, these markets were valued at $284.3 million in 2005, with a CAGR of 7.6 per cent during the same period between 2002 and 2012. Avian influenza was responsible for a decrease in both volume and value in the market between the years 2003 and 2004. The most important market in this region is in Thailand, which is export-driven, with the EU one of the largest consumers.
    • European Companion Animal Feed Prebiotics Markets
      The market for prebiotics in pets has become increasingly attractive in the last few years, driven by health perceptions and positive associations with the human probiotics market, the ban on antimicrobial growth promoters in agriculture and the willingness to confer the status of ‘extra family members’ to pets. In companion animals, prebiotics have been shown to improve gut microbial ecology, enhance stool quality and help reduce undesirable odours. Other benefits include the improvement of bone health parameters through enhanced mineral absorption and weight management brought about by an increased feeling of satiety. Research on the benefits of prebiotics is increasing, and the market for these ingredients looks very promising. Frost & Sullivan estimates revenues in the European companion animal feed prebiotics market to expand from €34.85 million in 2007 to €85.95 million by 2013.
    • Global Developments in Animal Feeds and Feed Additives (Technical Insights)
      The US government's interest in improving the health conditions of animals has increased, resulting in the animal feed additive industry becoming a fast growing market. A huge demand for phytase is predicted in the future. This is a result of the Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) concerns about chemical emissions from the agricultural industry. Farmers are also looking to reduce phosphate content in animal wastes. Thus, the most rapid growth is expected in the area of animal feed enzymes led by phytase.In order to find new solutions for the use of antibiotics, additive manufacturers are seeking probiotics, prebiotics, organic acids and enzymes.
    • Southeast Asian Animal Feed Additives Markets
      The steady rise in the consumption of meat protein such as chicken meat and pork in Southeast Asia is resulting in increasing demand for animal feed in the region. This in turn is driving demand for animal feed additives, such as amino acids, feed acidifiers and feed enzymes. Besides improving the nutritional quality of animal feed, these additives assist in enhancing animal growth and well-being. Moreover, consumers are displaying increasing concern over food safety issues. Hence, the growing emphasis on the quality of ingredients used in the production of animal feed is contributing to the growth of the animal feed additives market.
    • Strategic Review of the European Ban of Antibiotic Growth Promoters in Animal Feed
      As the European Union (EU) ban on antibiotic draws closer to full implementation, livestock producers are looking to identify new ways that stimulate production among animals and deliver the same benefits provided by antibiotic growth promoters. This creates a significant opportunity for alternative feed additives. Moreover, following the ban, countries outside the EU that import animal products such as chicken and pork meat will find it difficult to continue doing so. This opens up new opportunities for those within the European animal feed industry to supply such countries with alternative feed additives.Several different feed additives such as amino acids, enzymes, prebiotics, probiotics, organic acids, and proprietary blends are emerging as potential alternatives. "However, the general belief is that there is no direct replacement available for antibiotic growth promoters and further research needs to be done on alternative products to prove their effectiveness," remarks the analyst. "Antibiotic growth promoters were considered both inexpensive and effective and alternative products are often expensive in comparison".
  1. Specialty Processed Food
    • North American Rigid Food Packaging Markets
      The North American rigid food packaging market is increasingly witnessing consolidation, with the larger companies acquiring small- and medium-sized enterprises to enhance their market shares. The market is also challenged by the need to find suitable disposal methods for multilayered plastic rigid packages, as they pose a major problem in recycling. The rising emphasis on recycling plastic products due to the high resin cost and the increasing environmental awareness are compelling manufacturers to develop alternative packaging materials. The market can expect continuous and steady growth since consumers’ higher purchasing power allows them to spend more on food. For instance, U.S. consumers spend nearly 10 percent of their disposable personal income on food, and Canadian consumers, almost 14 percent.
    • Roadmap of U.S Organic Food Markets
      "Demand for organic food is growing immensely in the United States and motivating the giants in the food industry to enter this lucrative market," remarks Sneha Pasricha, analyst of this study. "Several multinationals are vying for strong positioning in this market by either offering new organic food products or by strategically acquiring or partnering with flourishing major organic brands." Rising retailer interest in this niche market is also encouraging for the market’s future. For instance, Wal-Mart is trying to capitalize on the new organic trend by investing a lot more in private label new product development and offering a wide range of branded organic products to satisfy increasing consumer demands.
