Global Lecithin Market to Grow at a CAGR of 3.8% During 2024-2032, Driven by Its Rising use in End Use Markets

Global Lecithin Market

According to a new report by EMR titled, ‘Global Lecithin Market Report and Forecast 2024-2032’, the global lecithin market reached a volume of 418.9 KMT in 2023. The market is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 3.8% during 2024-2032 to reach a volume of 584.6 KMT by 2032.

Lecithin's stabilising and beautifying properties are increasing its demand in the skincare and cosmetic sectors, driving the lecithin market growth. Changing beauty standards and health awareness have increased consumer's attention towards self-care. Consumers are increasingly opting for clean-label skincare products. The use of high-quality lecithin that meets the criteria for clean labelling is thus rising.


There is a rising demand for vegan products among consumers. The use of organic and plant-based lecithin in food additives can help producers attract potential vegan customers. Animal-based lecithin or lecithin sourced from egg yolks can easily be replaced with soy, rapeseed, or sunflower lecithin. Latin American nations contribute more than 51% of the global soybean production. In 2021-2022, Brazil was the leading soybean producer, while the United States of America held the second position with over 121 Mt.


Further, the mass manufacturing of edible products implies an increased ratio of ingredients in the recipe. As the number of ingredients rises, it becomes difficult for commercial food producers to get the viscosity of the blend right. Consequently, the demand for lecithin as an emulsifier is rising. Lecithin is an effective emulsifier that holds the non-soluble ingredients of recipes together.


Major players in the lecithin market include Archer Daniels Midland Company (NYSE: ADM), Bunge Limited, Cargill, Incorporated, Caldic B.V., and Lecithin GmbH, among others.
