The China anti caking market size is anticipated to expand at a robust CAGR during the forecast period, 2021-2028. The growth of the market is attributed to increasing demand for the product in the food & beverage industry. Moreover, growing awareness about its functional properties, such as moisture absorption functionality is driving the market growth.
An anticaking agent is an additive added in powdered or granulated ingredients, such as table salt to prevent the formation of lumps, and for easing packaging, flowability, and consumption. These agents are anhydrous compounds that are added in small amounts to dry foods to prevent the particles caking together and ensure the product remains dry and free-flowing.
Without anticaking agents, dry soup, cakes, and biscuits mixes would be clumped and chunky. Cappuccino and hot chocolate vending machines would not function properly, and premixes for manufacturing can’t be used properly.
These agents are often found in milk and cream powders, flour-based mixes, baking powder, table salt, cocoa, and mixed coffee beverages. In manufacturing, the addition of anti-caking agent assists in preventing bridging during the packaging process.
Anticaking agents absorb excess moisture or are coated to the ingredients to make them water repellant. Additionally, anticaking agents are also heavily used in the production of cosmetics and detergent products.
Market Trends, Drivers, Restraints, and Opportunities:
- Growing availability of raw materials is one of the major drivers that is contributing to the growth of the China anti caking market.
- Increasing technological advancements is expected to augment the market growth.
- Several health hazards and side-effects associated with anticaking agents can hinder the market growth.
- The outbreak of COVID-19 has negatively impacted the China anticaking market. However, the market is anticipated to recover soon.
- Rising food demand owing to growing population in the country is expected to proliferate the market growth.

China Anti Caking Market Segment Insights:
Calcium compounds segment to grow at a rapid pace
Based on types, the market is divided into calcium compounds, sodium compounds, magnesium compounds, and others. The calcium compound segment is anticipated to account for a key market share and is anticipated to grow at a robust CAGR during the forecast period. Calcium compounds are used as anti-caking agents. For instance, calcium stearate NF provides sound anti-adherent and lubricant properties. Some anti-caking agents such as bone phosphate and calcium ferrocyanide are expected to further boost the market growth.
Food and Beverages segment to account a major market share
Based on applications, the market is segmented into food and beverages, cosmetics and personal care, animal feed, and others. The food and beverages segment is divided into bakery products, dairy products, soups and sauces, beverages mixes, and others. The food and beverages segment is anticipated to account for a major market share due to its use as powdered ingredient, which is easily affected by moisture and temperature. This, in turn, results in the formation of lumps, which can be prevented by using anticaking agent. On the other hand, the cosmetics segment is anticipated to exhibit a robust CAGR during the forecast period. Growing consumption of beauty products owing to rising consciousness toward skin health is driving the segment growth.
