Global Food Hydrocolloids Market

Global Food Hydrocolloids Market

Market Insight

The demand for natural food products is increasing among the health conscious consumer. This has resulted in the tremendous growth of the global hydrocolloids market. Hydrocolloids are the polysaccharide and proteins of commercial importance in food and beverages products by impacting its rheological and organoleptic properties. Hydrocolloids function as binding agents, stabilizers, emulsifiers, thickeners and gelling agents. The global market for hydrocolloids is expected to reach a value of USD 8.1 billion by 2022 with a growing CAGR of 5.7%.

Market Dynamics

The market is largely driven by increased Research & Development and innovations in hydrocolloids. Rising demand of natural hydrocolloids, increased demand of processed foods, increased health concerns and demand for low fat foods, and the varied functional applications of hydrocolloids in the food and beverage industry are some of the reasons for the uptick in demand. The changing consumer demographics in terms of lifestyle changes and growing working population resulting in consumer demand for convenience and processed foods, especially among the emerging nations. This is seen as an opportunity for the manufacturers to adopt hydrocolloids in their manufacturing process. However, the market is mainly constrained by the demand – supply imbalances. Seasonal changes cause volatility in the raw material pricing, thus raising costs for manufacturers. In spite of restrains, the market sees huge potential for growth.

Market Segmentation

The market is segmented based on type which includes gelatin, xanthan gum, starch, carrageenan and others. Majority of the hydrocolloids require raw materials to be sourced from natural and synthetic sources. Natural source for hydrocolloids are seaweeds, plants, animals and microorganisms. Hydrocolloids are used for a wide range of applications, such as bakery, confectionery, meat & poultry, beverage, and dairy& frozen products. Bakery and Confectionary dominate the market share for hydrocolloids. Market segmentation on the basis of varied functions includes emulsifier, stabilizer, coating agent, gellyfying agent, fat replacer and others. Based on regions the market is segmented as North America, Europe, Asia-pacific, South America and Africa. In 2016, North America was the largest market for hydrocolloids followed by Europe. Asia-Pacific is the fastest growing region followed by Europe for the period 2017-2022. Changing lifestyles of consumers and increasing awareness on nutritional food is driving the hydrocolloids market in developing countries, such as India and China.
