Margarine Market increase from its current valuation of US$

NEW YORK, April 20, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — As per detailed industry analysis by Persistence Market Research, the global margarine market is valued at over US$19 Bn in 2022, and is estimated to register value growth at a CAGR of 3.3% over the forecast period (2022-2032).

Butter is produced by churning cream or milk to separate the solid constituents from butter. It generally finds application in cooking, baking, and as a spread. It is an animal-based fat and the increasing vegan population tends not to consume it for the very basic reason that it is derived from animals. Moreover, the medical community states that butter is not good for human health as it has some portion of bad saturated fat content.

This has triggered food scientists to come up with alternatives that are both healthy and plant-derived. The best and most easily available options are vegetable oils and plant-derived oils. Margarine is manufactured by mixing a plant-based oil, such as soybean oil, canola oil, palm oil, or any other oil, with either water or milk. The vegetable oil part is almost 80% of the overall margarine. Now, as margarine is plant-based and also a cheaper option as compared with butter, it is preferred in major industry segments such as bakery and confectionery.

Furthermore, margarine contains an array of ingredients. Margarine producers add salt and other compounds to it to make the flavor and texture enjoyable and mouth-watering for consumers, which is further driving market expansion.
