The global carrageenan market exhibited moderate growth during 2015-2020. Carrageenan is an anionic polysaccharide extracted from different species of red and purple seaweeds, such as Chondrus, Gigartina, Eucheuma, Fur cellaria, and Phyllophora. It is widely used to stabilize and gelatinize proteins in yogurt, ice cream, cottage cheese, milk pudding, and whipped toppings. It is also utilized in meat products like cooked hams and sausages due to its ability to bind water and control the texture and structural integrity. Moreover, as it is non-toxic, biodegradable, and biocompatible, carrageenan is employed in the cosmetics industry to attain the required texture and consistency of products.
The growing preferences for processed food products represent one of the largest factors escalating the demand for carrageenan across the globe. It is widely employed for emulsifying non-dairy desserts and preventing spoilage of other bakery and confectionery items. It is also used as a stabilizing agent in the manufacturing of beverages targeted at consumers with dietary restrictions. Moreover, due to its functional ability and antiaging, antioxidant, and anticarcinogenic properties, carrageenan finds application in the production of skin lotions, toothpaste binders, and shaving foams. Apart from this, it is employed in the pharmaceutical industry for developing medicines and microbiocidal compounds for wound dressings. Other innovative applications, such as a gelling agent in air fresheners, are creating lucrative opportunities for the market growth. Besides this, several multinational companies (MNCs) are entering into strategic partnerships with small-sized enterprises to introduce innovative products and expand their market reach. This, in turn, is anticipated to propel the market growth further.
