The demand for butter and margarine rides on the rising disposable incomes of the consumers, notes Transparency Market Research in a report titled “Butter and Margarine Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends, and Forecast 2015–2023”. Although the improving purchasing power and standards of living of the consumers are indicative of the projected growth of the butter and margarine market, increasing concerns over the prevalence of obesity are likely to restrict the market’s development through the forecast period. Download the Butter and Margarine Industry Fact Sheet by 2023: http://www.transparencymarketresearch.com/sample/sample.php?flag=B&rep_id=4780 Government restrictions pertaining to the manufacturing and marketing of butter and margarine also pose a restraint to the overall growth. In addition to this, the availability of substitutes threatens the market. Nevertheless, the falling prices of these products have upped their consumption in most developing countries and this offers players immense scope for growth. Based on usage, the butter and margarine market can be bifurcated into spreadable and non-spreadable. By product type, the market comprises cream and whipped butter, liquid margarines, cultured and uncultured butter, butter margarines, and others. The demand for butter is relatively higher and the sales of margarine takes a hit owing to the inclusion of additives. The global market for butter and margarine can be segmented on the basis of geography into North America, Asia Pacific, Europe, and Rest of the World. North America accounts for a significant share in the overall market in terms of revenue and is likely to retain its positive streak throughout the forecast period. The butter and margarine market in the region is fueled by the high consumption of baked and packaged foods. Asia Pacific is projected to exhibit healthy growth over the coming years, with China and India emerging as the front-runners. The rapidly growing economies in these countries has resulted in an increase in disposable income. This, in turn, has enabled consumers to increase their spending on luxury food items such as desserts, pastries, and confectionery. This, combined with the declining prices of margarine and butter, is projected to lead to higher sales in APAC. The report includes a dedicated section on the competitive landscape of the butter and margarine market. The key vendors operating in this market, both domestic and international, have been identified and profiled in detail. Aspects such as company and business overview, financial standing, product portfolio, recent developments, and business strategies have been taken into account while assessing the current and future performance of these companies. The top companies participating in the global butter and margarine market include Dean Foods Company, Kraft Foods, AMUL India, Farmers Cooperative Creamery, Arla Foods, OJSC Creative Group, and FrieslandCampina.

« New energy-efficient process for direct conversion of biomass without pretreatment to liquid hydrocarbon fuels | Main | SAE International publishes two standards for vehicle-to-vehicle communications » KLM Royal Dutch Airlines has launched a series of around 80 biofuel flights from Oslo to Amsterdam operated with an Embraer 190. The remaining flights will be operated over the forthcoming period of five to six weeks. Embraer will be conducting measurements during these flights to gauge the efficiency of biofuel in comparison with kerosene. The flights will depart from Oslo Airport (Avinor), the first airport to supply biofuel directly from its hydrant system since January this year. In addition to biofuel supplied from the hydrant system, biofuel will also be delivered by separate fuel trucks for the series of flights operated by KLM Cityhopper. Biofuel has to be supplied by fuel trucks for these flights in order to measure the efficiency of biofuel in comparison with kerosene during the Embraer flights. The biofuel batch for these flights was produced within the ITAKA (Initiative Towards SustAinable Kerosene for Aviation) project and supplied by Air BP and SkyNRG. The biofuel for this series of flights is produced from 100% RSB (Roundtable on Sustainable Biomaterials) certified camelina oil and in full compliance with the EU RED standard. The ITAKA consortium was founded by leading companies operating in the airline and fuel industries. Together, they are working on producing and testing sustainable biofuel in the airline industry. In achieving this goal, they receive financial support from the European Commission. The biofuel flights are partly funded by the partners in the KLM Corporate BioFuel Program: ABN AMRO, Accenture, CBRE Global Investors, FMO, FrieslandCampina, City of Amsterdam, Heineken, Loyens & Loeff, PGGM, Perfetti Van Melle and the Schiphol Group. KLM’s aim is to reduce CO emissions by 20% per passenger in 2020 (compared to 2011 levels) through fleet renewal, using sustainable biofuel and increasing flight efficiency. Because affordable sustainable biofuel is not always available, KLM also aims to stimulate the market for sustainable biofuel. KLM’s recent inclusion of the E175 from Embraer in its fleet ties in with the airline’s aim to further reduce CO2 emissions. This aircraft type is significantly more fuel-efficient in comparison with the current Fokker 70 equipment, and is therefore more environmentally friendly. Using 18% less fuel, it also generates an 18% reduction in CO emissions.
