Shortenings Market Size To Reach USD 6,208.0 Million By 2028 | Reports And Data

The global shortenings market is projected to reach USD 6,208.0 Million by 2028 from USD 4,325.2 Million in 2020 in terms of value, at a CAGR of 4.5% from 2020. Shortenings enrich the moistness, fineness, and uniformity of grain, and keeping quality. If either margarine or butter is used, the flavor also is imparted; hydrogenated shortening ordinarily is used in cake, however. The efficiency of shortenings has been increased in recent years by the addition of surfactants, which facilitate emulsification and air incorporation and dispersion in batters. This is often because of features like more durability and cheaper than animal-based shortenings. The Asia Pacific held a dominant position within the global shortenings market and contributed maximum revenue share. Factors like the expansion of the food & beverage industry besides growing usage of shortenings in multiple food preparation applications are predicted to drive the expansion of the Asia Pacific shortenings market shortly.
