“The de-oiled lecithin market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 8.2% in terms of value between 2018 and 2023.”
The de-oiled lecithin market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 8.2% from 2018, to reach USD 232.1 million by 2023. De-oiled lecithin is a multipurpose ingredient that is primarily used as an emulsifier, releasing agent, and instantizing agent. Owing to its multifunctionality, the demand for de-oiled lecithin is projected to be on the rise, owing to factors such as the growth in the food industry and increase in applications in the bakery, confectionery, and convenience food industries. Along with the increasing consumer consciousness for natural ingredients in the cosmetic industry, the emerging applications in the poultry and aqua feed industries is expected to drive the de-oiled lecithin market.
Despite their important role in food safety and shelf-life extension, the preference for synthetic emulsifiers such as mono- & diglycerides and their derivatives, sorbitan esters, stearoyl lactylates, and polyglycerol esters over natural emulsifiers such as de-oiled lecithin is proving to be a restraint for the market.

“Soy is projected to dominate the de-oiled lecithin market through the forecast period.”
Based on the source, the soy segment is projected to dominate the de-oiled lecithin market in terms of value through 2023. The easier extraction process of soy-derived ingredients than sunflower- or egg-derived ingredients, coupled with the wide availability of soy in many countries, are the major factors supporting the dominant nature of soy-sourced de-oiled lecithin in the market. However, there has been a shift in the demand from soy to alternate sources of de-oiled lecithin such as sunflower and rapeseed, owing to GMO concerns associated with soy lecithin. The sunflower segment in the de-oiled lecithin market is projected to grow at the highest CAGR, in terms of value, during the forecast period.
