The global shortening market was valued at $4,250.0 million in 2020, and is estimated to reach $6,373.6 Million by 2030, registering a CAGR of 4.2% from 2021 to 2030.

Europe is one of the prominent regions, which accounted for a sizeable share of the total market in 2020. A shortening is characterized as a fat, solid at room temperature, which can be used to provide foods a brittle and fresh texture such as pastry. Shortening is most commonly made from vegetable oils like soybean, cottonseed, or refined palm oil, which are normally fluid at room temperature.

Animal source of fats are both lipids derived from animal; oils are liquid at room temperature, while fats are solid. Although certain fats such as goose fats, have a higher smoke point than other animal fats, they have lower smoke point as compared to vegetables oils, such as olive oil and avocado. Animal fats are commonly consumed in semisolid forms such as milk, butter, lard and dripping or as a filler in factory-produced meat, pet food and fast food products.

Shortening fats have gained popularity as feed products due to the health benefits they provide to poultry and cattle. Fats are high-energy supplements that help to maintain nutritional balance while lowering feed costs. As a result, these are added as feed products to reduce bloat and energy density in the feed.

Owing to the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, increase has been witnessed in the consumption of healthy edible oils and nutritional products to strengthen the immune system. Furthermore, the production and distribution of these products were impacted as a result of lockdown imposed by governments in various countries and temporary shutdown of various manufacturing units; however, the market is expected to recover in the coming years.
