Hydrocolloids are functional ingredients used as thickeners, stabilizers, and emulsifiers. They are obtained from synthetic and natural sources with applications in agriculture, pharmaceuticals, personal care, oil gas, and food beverages. The global hydrocolloids market report by Market Research Future (MRFR) considers drivers, challenges, trends, and hurdles for the period of 2022 to 2030 (forecast period). The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and its effects have been noted in the report.
The global hydrocolloids market is projected to reach USD 26,937.1 million by 2030. It is expected to garner revenues at a CAGR of 5.50% over the forecast period.
Huge demand for convenience foods and indulgence of processed foods can drive the need for hydrocolloids which provide functional nutrients to the body. The rising wave of health-consciousness among consumers has led to food and beverage manufacturers to shift to natural ingredients in their formulations. This is evident with the use of pectin, guar guar gum, locust bean gum, and carrageenan. According to Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada, the U.S. accounted for USD 68.17 billion worth of bakery products.
Complexities in attaining raw materials and adherence to strict regulations can restrain market growth.
