Global egg powder market report 2019

28 February 2019, at 12:00am

GLOBAL - The global egg powder market reached a volume of around 197,552 Tons in 2018, growing at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of around 4.5 percent during 2011-2018.

One of the major factors driving the global demand of egg powder is its long shelf life and portability. Egg powder has a shelf-life of 5 to 10 years and is non-perishable, when stored in an air-tight container. It can easily be transported and does not require refrigeration, unlike real eggs which have high chances of cracking. Apart from providing the same amount of protein as regular eggs, it is also lactose free, low in carbohydrate, cholesterol and fat, and also offers reduced weight per volume as compared to whole egg.

Egg powder is also highly convenient to use because of its physical form which leads to low to no product wastage and generates no residue after usage. Egg powders are also available in a versatile product range such as egg white powder, egg yolk powder, whole egg powder and egg shell powder. These varied product ranges cater to different needs. Egg white powder is rich in protein content whereas egg yolk powder contains the bulk of the egg's fat. Someone opting for a low-calorie, high-protein diet can consume egg white powder without separating egg yolks from egg whites.

Catalysed by its numerous benefits, egg powder has become a crucial element in countless applications of the food industry due to its exceptional binding and emulsion capabilities.
