The global hydrocolloids market size reached US$ 11.4 Billion in 2022. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to reach US$ 15.5 Billion by 2028, exhibiting a growth rate (CAGR) of 5% during 2023-2028.
Hydrocolloids are high molecular weight hydrophilic polymers that form a colloidal dispersion in water. They are extracted from plants, animals, seaweeds, and microbials. Pectin, carrageenan, gelatin, alginates, agar, carboxy methyl, and guar gum are some commonly used hydrocolloids. They are widely incorporated in beverages, bakery products, dairy, frozen food, confectionery, seafood, oils, and fats. Hydrocolloids improve the textural properties and act as thickeners, water retention agents, stabilizers, emulsifiers, and gel-forming agents. They also provide a moist and insulating healing environment that protects uninfected wounds, treats acne blemishes, and reduces inflammation and skin redness. As a result, hydrocolloids find extensive applications across the food and beverage (F&B), pharmaceutical, personal care, and cosmetics industries.
Hydrocolloids Market Trends:
Significant growth in the F&B industry across the globe is creating a positive outlook for the market. Hydrocolloids are widely used as gelling and thickening agents in soups, gravies, jams, jellies, and marmalade. In addition, increasing product utilization for manufacturing convenience food products to improve shelf-life, increase consistency, and control the microstructure, texture, and flavor is acting as another growth-inducing factor. Furthermore, the rising product demand in the cosmetics and personal care industries to produce toothpaste, lotions, deodorants, and sunscreens due to their viscosity-controlling and water-binding properties are providing a thrust to the market growth. Apart from this, the introduction of ultrasound or microwave-assisted extraction of hydrocolloids from macroalgae that reduces the use of chemicals, maximizes yield, and maintains sustainability is propelling the market growth. Moreover, the widespread product utilization in the pharmaceutical sector for manufacturing oral formulations due to its excellent rheological properties that regulate the flow behavior and impart stickiness is providing a considerable boost to the market growth. Other factors, including the rising application of hydrocolloids for dressing and wound care, increasing demand for natural ingredients and clean-label products, and shifting inclination towards ready-to-eat (RTE) products, are anticipated to drive the market growth.
