Mayonnaise is a thick creamy emulsion of egg yolk, oil, vinegar, lemon juice and seasonings. It is used both as the base for other sauces, such as thousand-island salad dressing and tartar sauce, as well as in the preparation of snacks, such as sandwiches, burgers, salads, dips and cupcakes. Over the years, the growing popularity of salads and fast-food products has resulted in an increased consumption of mayonnaise across the globe. A new research report by IMARC Group, titled “Mayonnaise Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2018-2023”, estimates that the global mayonnaise market was worth US$ 9.9 Billion in 2017. The report further anticipates the market to reach a value of US$ 12.5 Billion by 2023, at a projected CAGR of 4% over the forecast period.
