Global Food Hydrocolloids Market

The food industry has an enormous demand for food hydrocolloids primarily due to its functional properties. The increasing consumption of processed food is the major key factor driving the market growth. At present, the rising complexity of consumer dynamics due to personal and professional commitments does not leave sufficient time for fresh cooking on a habitual basis. This, in turn, is representing a growing demand for food hydrocolloids in the market.

Gelatin powder, sugar, and other constituents are used in the preparation of pastry, desserts, and various other specialty food products. Thus, the demand of this ingredient will help to support the food hydrocolloids market growth in the near future.

By application, bakery and confectionery segment is expected to attain the major market share of the global food hydrocolloids market during the forecast period. The increasing interest by the consumers for processed food has been a key aspect for the upsurge in the interest of hydrocolloids. In turn, food hydrocolloids market will gain more share value over the forecast period.

The market for food hydrocolloids is directly inclined by the continuous new products launched and research & developmental activities. For instance, Alland & Robert Company launched Syndeo, a hydrocolloid solution. It is derived from natural and vegetal sources and mostly used in the dairy-free beverage. Emerging economies are seeking to attain food hydrocolloids from natural sources. For instance, Indian Farmers’ Fertiliser Cooperative (IFFCO) has signed an agreement with the state of Sikkim (first organic state of India) to manufacture hydrocolloids from seaweed biomass.

By geography, the food hydrocolloids market is segmented into North America, Europe, Latin America, Asia Pacific, and the Middle East & Africa. Among all, North America is expected to be the fastest-growing region. The rising economies of the Asia Pacific region followed by Europe region are a major market for food hydrocolloids and are increasingly contributing to their demand, due to increase in disposable income, population, and growth in the demand for processed food; in turn, the food hydrocolloids market is anticipated to grow in coming years. In addition, the Middle East and Africa’s food hydrocolloids market are expected to grow at a slow pace in the future.
