Global Hydrocolloids Market – Overview

The intensified use of hydrocolloids in functional food to overcome diseases such as obesity, diabetes, and other chronic diseases has uplifted the demand for hydrocolloids. With growing health concerns and rising per capita health care cost, there has been surge in demand of hydrocolloids. Market Research Future, a firm which specializes in market reports related to the Foods, Beverages & Nutrition sector among others, recently forecasted in its report “Global Hydrocolloids Market Research Report- Forecast to 2023” that the market will demonstrate an exceptional CAGR % while achieving million dollar growth readily in the forecast period.

Hydrocolloids are substances which tend to form gel in the presence of water. They are mostly used for gelling, stabilizing, thickening, coating, and emulsifying purposes. Hydrocolloids are widely used in extending the shelf life and enhancing the stability of food and beverage products. Hydrocolloids help in reduction of sugar and salt content in food and beverage products without altering the physical properties of the products. Commonly used hydrocolloids in food and beverage industries are gelatin, alginates, xanthan gum, pectin, guar gum, carrageenan, and carboxymethyl cellulose (CMC).

The shifting inclinations of consumers towards improved lifestyle, the demand for nutritive ingredients such as hydrocolloids has grown in the recent years.  Also, the intensified use of hydrocolloids in functional food owing to reduction of diseases such as obesity, diabetes, and other diseases has uplifted the demand for hydrocolloids. Hydrocolloids such as gelatin, xanthan gum, pectin, carrageenan, and CMC have a wide range product applicability which includes: dairy and frozen desserts, bakery and confectionary, snacks, beverages and others. Moreover, rising demand for natural gelling-agent, thickeners and stabilizers in food and beverage industry is projected to drive the growth of hydrocolloids industry over the review period.

Furthermore, growing health conscious population and their awareness towards health is boosting the market of hydrocolloids. Moreover, increasing consumption of yogurt, frozen products, and meat and poultry products are likely to contribute to the growth of global hydrocolloids market. Also, the growing consumption of fruit and vegetable juices is adding fuel to the growth of the hydrocolloids market. However, the toxicity caused due excessive consumption of hydrocolloids used in food products may hinder the market growth over the forecast period.
