Ethylene Absorber Market Challenges In 2031

Ethylene absorbers for produce packaging are gaining popularity. Ethylene absorbers are especially beneficial in produce warehouses, where ethylene gas, a natural plant growth regulator, can accumulate quickly. High levels of ethylene in storage can cause a faster rate of respiration and, as a result, senescence. The use of ethylene absorbers can dramatically improve shelf life, resulting in less waste in the supply chain and cost savings for suppliers and retailers. These absorbers can be incorporated into paper bags or corrugated fiberboard transit packaging for the storage and transportation of fruit. They can also be used as sachets in retail produce packets to extend the shelf life of the product for the benefit of both the retailer and the consumer.

Ethylene is produced by all plants and, even in low quantities, causes fruit and vegetable ripening, softening, and degradation. Many fruits and vegetables' shelf life and quality suffer the consequences of this during storage and distribution. As a response, removing ethylene from the production environment can assist in extending its shelf life. To remove ethylene, a small sachet containing an appropriate scavenger such as potassium permanganate (KMnO4), zeolite, active carbon, pumice, or other acceptable scavenger is included in the packaging. Minerals such as these could be included in packaging materials. Ethylene absorbers are used to increase the shelf life of climacteric fruits and vegetables such apples, kiwis, apricots, bananas, mangoes, cucumbers, tomatoes, and avocados, as well as vegetables like carrots, potatoes, and asparagus. Ethylene absorbers are used majorly in the cold storage and distribution of fruits and vegetables since most of them are extremely sensitive to ethylene gas.

Fruits and Vegetables to Garner Maximum Revenue

Fruits and vegetables such as apples, avocados, bananas, kiwifruit, cucumber, and grape, among others, are highly sensitive to ethylene gas, the demand for indigenous fruits such as kiwis and avocados is increasing, and they can be stored for a longer time in controlled environments. These factors contribute toward the increasing demand for ethylene absorbers in the fruits and vegetable application. Moreover, with the advent of COVID-19, the packaged foods market has observed a sudden increase in demand due to nationwide lockdowns and limited availability of fresh foods.

South America to Witness Maximum Demand in the Ethylene Absorbers Market

The demand for ethylene absorbers varies according to various regions. The market holds a prominent share in various countries of South America, Asia-Pacific and Japan, and Europe. South America is currently the largest revenue-generating country in the ethylene absorbers market, predominantly backed by demand for premium 1-MCP and potassium permanganate products. Technological advancements, extensive investments for dedicated R&D facilities, and the presence of major raw material manufacturing companies are some of the major drivers that are propelling the growth of the market in the country. Additionally, due to the wide-scale production of fruits and vegetables, the market is expected to grow at a steady rate. Apart from South America, Europe and Asia-Pacific and Japan are expected to display significant growth potential on account of an excessive import, encouraging government policies, and financial support for research and development offered in the various countries of the entire region.
