Market Insights on Carrageenan Film covering sales outlook, demand forecast & up-to-date key trends

Carrageenan Film Market Overview

Carrageenan belongs to the family of linear sulphated polysaccharides. It is extracted from the red seaweeds, such as eucheuma cottonii, eucheuma spinosum, and others. Rising application of carrageenan as a gelling, thickening, emulsifying stabilizing, or suspending agent in chemicals, food products, and nutraceutical products is projected to increase the demand.

In addition to this, growing application of carrageenan films in the food packaging industry as well as a substitute to the collagen film or casing net is likely to create remunerative growth opportunities in the market.

Carrageenan films are extensively used as an edible packaging material for processed meat and poultry foods due to its availability in clear and color format and with no artificial coloring on it.

These films do not affect the nutritional value of food products and provides extended shelf life. Hence, demand for carrageenan films is projected to accelerate among packaging manufacturers at a rapid pace through 2032.

Which are the Trends Fueling Growth in Carrageenan Film Market?

According to Future Market Insights (FMI), the absence of artificial coloring, food safety, and preservation of the nutritional contents are major factors anticipated to boost the carrageenan film market, especially across pharmaceutical and food industries.

Growing inclination of consumers towards eco-friendly or biodegradable products due to rising environmental concerns related to plastic packaging will augment the sales of edible packaging products such as carrageenan films.

Further, increased shelf life of the meat, poultry and dairy products along with limited risks of cross contamination is improving the adoption of carrageenan films, propelling the sales over the forecast period.

Also, sustainability initiatives and high spending on research and development (R&D) activities related to packaging is predicted to create new avenues for carrageenan films market players over the assessment period.

Which are the Factors Limiting Sales of Carrageenan Films?

Irrespective of the grade of carrageenan used, the hydrophilic nature of these films is anticipated to impede their performance in some applications, hindering the sales in the market.

Additionally, the inability of the carrageenan materials to be used in high water containing products such as fruits, meat products, and other liquid items will restrict their application in the packaging of these food items.

Stringent quality standards in accordance with international quality standards and regulations followed in the food stabilizer products are some of the few tailbacks, which are likely to hamper the growth in the market.

According to European Food Safety Authority (EFSA), the panel concluded that the existing group acceptable daily intake (ADI) for carrageenan (E 407) and processed eucheuma seaweed (E 407a) of 75 mg/kg per day should be temporarily considered till the database will be upgraded within 5 years after publication of this opinion.

Until then, adequate inter laboratory validated analytical method to quantify the current 5% limit and the fractions effect on the health will be evaluated. This revaluation is likely to pose a challenge for the key players in the market.

How will Sales of Carrageenan Films Increase in North America?

According to FMI, North America is expected to dominate the global carrageenan films market owing to the rising inclination towards organic and processed foods and for biodegradable packaging.

Also, increasing consumption of healthy food and growing awareness of healthier lifestyles are likely to contribute to the growth in North America carrageenan film market. In addition to this, the high demand for plant-based food ingredients is anticipated to further supplement the adoption of these films.
