Global Alginate Market to Grow at 4.5% During 2024-2032, Impelled by Rising Product Utilization as Thickening Agent

May 20, 2022 | Food & Beverages

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled "Alginate Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2024-2032," the global alginate market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 4.5% during 2024-2032. Alginate is a water-soluble and biodegradable anionic polysaccharide that is generally present within the cell walls of brown algae. It mainly comprises guluronic acid, copolymers and mannuronic acid that provide them strength and flexibility, thereby making them a vital ingredient in producing industrial stabilizing agents and gels. It is widely available in granulated or powdered forms across the globe. In comparison to traditional thickening compounds, alginate has lower toxicity and higher biocompatibility. Due to its ability to hold water more than its own weight, it is commonly utilized as gelling substance across diverse applications, including pharmaceuticals and casting.

Global Alginate Market Trends:

The global market is primarily driven by the rising product demand from the food and beverage industry. This is supported by the increasing product utilization as a thickening agent in the preparation of soups, ice-cream and jellies. Along with this, the growing preference for convenience food items among the masses is also contributing to the market. Since alginate is a naturally produced substance and is safe for external use, it is widely used in the manufacturing of various pharmaceutical products and as a disintegrant for tablets, which is significantly propelling the market growth. In addition to this, the rising adoption of alginate in modern dentistry for fabricating teeth and jaw impressions is acting as a major growth-inducing factor. Moreover, the product is majorly utilized for designing, printing and dyeing jute and cotton fabrics, due to which it is gaining prominence across the textile sector. The market is further driven by the increasing utilization of alginate in the formulation of personal care and cosmetic products. Other factors, including extensive product utilization for preparing animal feed and the widespread adoption of biomedical compounds across the healthcare sector, are also favoring the market.
