The global food thickeners market grew at a CAGR of around 5% during 2015-2020. Food thickeners are food modifying agents used for increasing the thickness or consistency of the food without altering the flavor. They are usually extracted from plant sources that increase the bulkiness and viscosity of the product by absorbing water present in the dish. Some of the commonly used food thickeners include hydrocolloids, collagen, gelatin, arrowroot, cornstarch, potato starch, sago, tapioca, alganin and xanthan gum. They are used with sauces, gravies, desserts and puddings in combination with other ingredients to provide a consistent texture to the dish.
Significant growth in the food and beverage industry across the globe represents one of the key factors creating a positive outlook for the market growth. Furthermore, the increasing demand for ready-to-eat (RTE) and convenience food products is also driving the market growth. Food thickeners, such as starch, hydrocolloids and proteins, are widely used to manufacture RTE dairy and frozen desserts, bakery products, sauces and dressings. In line with this, the increasing demand for healthy snacks produced with natural ingredients, is also contributing to the market growth. Additionally, various product innovations, such as the launch of variants with enhanced organoleptic characteristics, ingredient emulsification and palatability, are acting as other growth-inducing factors. Product manufacturers are also developing organic and water-soluble food thickeners with low-calorie content to enhance the efficiency of the thickening agents. Other factors, including rising expenditure capacities of the consumers, along with shifting food consumption patterns, are anticipated to drive the market further. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the global food thickeners market to exhibit moderate growth during the next five years.
