Ethylene Absorber Market
The discovery of ethylene gas as a plant hormone for ripening was made by Richard Gaze in 1934. Ethylene gas at that time was controlled solely by the manipulation of environmental conditions such as temperature and humidity.
Potassium permanganate is among the leading raw materials used in the ethylene absorber market. Potassium permanganate was the first material to be used as an ethylene absorber, it was followed by sodium permanganate and clay, among others. In 2003, 1-Methylcyclopropane was introduced as an ethylene absorber in the segment, it has remained the market leader in the ethylene absorber market especially for apples ever since.
Ethylene Absorber Industry Overview
The global ethylene absorber market is expected to reach $56,594.1 million by 2031, with a CAGR of 21.89% during the forecast period 2020- 2031. The increasing growth in the packaging industry and increasing demand of ethylene absorber products in domestic applications are expected to be the major driving factors for the market. Fruits and vegetables are expected to retain their hold over the ethylene absorbers demand due to their high sensitivity to ethylene gas.
Ethylene Absorber Market by End User
The ethylene absorber market has been segmented based on end user, including fruits and vegetables, flowers and crops and seeds. The fruits and vegetables end user segment is estimated to dominate the global ethylene absorbers market due to the growing need for fresh packaged foods with high shelf-life.
Ethylene Absorber Market by Application
The ethylene absorber market has been segmented based on application, including controlled atmosphere storage, ripening rooms, transportation/shipping and, residential. Transportation/shipping application is expected to be the front runner in the global ethylene absorber market due to the rapid growth in demand of fruits, vegetables and flowers. Since this produce is generally indigenous, the shipping and transportation distance is increased. Thus, the demand of ethylene absorbers within is boosted.
Ethylene Absorber Market by Chemicals
The ethylene absorber market has been segmented based on chemicals, including potassium permanganate, sodium permanganate, alumina, clay, 1-MCP, zeolite and, others. 1-MCP is expected to be the market leader in terms of market value in the forecast period 2021-2031 due to its higher price coupled with increased adoption due to high absorption capabilities in apples ethylene absorber market. Potassium permanganate is expected to hold the lion’s share in the ethylene absorber market in terms of volume due to it’s cheaper price and fairly high ethylene gas absorption capabilities in the vegetables, bananas and kiwifruits segment.
Ethylene Absorber Market by Product
The ethylene absorber market has been segmented based on product, including anti-ethylene bag, ethylene filter, ethylene sachet, ethylene sheet, ethylene pad, environmental control system, and others. Ethylene environmental control systems are expected to hold the lion’s share in the product segment of ethylene absorbers market due to higher price of the product coupled with increased efficiencies along with capability to be used in the transportation/shipping, ripening rooms as well as cold storage segments. This allows the product a greater market potential as compared to other ethylene absorber products.
Ethylene Absorber Market by Region
The ethylene absorber market has been segmented based on region including North America, South America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and Middle East and Africa. South America is expected to account for the highest share of the global ethylene absorber market, owing to a significant number of companies establishing their manufacturing and packaging sites in the region, production of fruits and flowers such as bananas, kiwifruits and avocados, among others and longer transportation routes from the region to the other regions.
