Restrained Growth Anticipated
It will not be smooth-sailing for the global food coating market as strict government regulations on the quality of coatings used are expected to be implemented. Moreover, intense competition might lead to trade malpractices which will not bode well for market growth. Such events have been witnessed in the past. For example, in 2001, McDonald’s was sued in the US for coating their French fries with beef and selling the product as being 100% vegetarian. Such controversies could severely damage growth of the global food coating market.
Mergers and Acquisitions Define Competition in The Market
Key competitors are upping the ante in the global food coating market through launch of innovative products and mergers and acquisitions. For example, Kerry Group plc of Ireland acquired the Spain-based food coating manufacturer, Hasenosa, to diversify their product portfolio and establish a greater market presence in Europe. With regard to innovation, Cargill Incorporated is a notable example as it developed the world’s first fillings and coatings in 2019.
