Gum Hydrocolloid Market

Gum Hydrocolloid Market: Global Industry Analysis and Opportunity Assessment 2015-2025

Market Overview

Overview

The rising consumption of food products and beverages will continue boosting the use of several additives, including gum hydrocolloids. The wide presence of gum hydrocolloids in various consumable foods is on the account of the properties of the ingredient. As a functional food ingredient, gum hydrocolloid is present to provide stability and increase viscosity of an edible product. The adhesive properties of hydrocolloids enable the food product to naturally congeal the constituent ingredients. The growing consumption of processed food products is also expected to foster the demand for gum hydrocolloids. Additionally, the use of gum hydrocolloids has considerable reduced the fat content of food products. Accompanying the global trend of eating healthy and low calorie food products, the growth in the demand for gum hydrocolloids is expected to surge substantially.

Gum Hydrocolloid Market: Drivers & Restraints

The global market for gum hydrocolloid will be majorly driven by the increasing consumer preferences for natural food products. The rise in consumption of natural ingredients will equally catalyse the growth in the demand for gum hydrocolloids. Besides this, the impact of R&D to enhance the gelling properties of hydrocolloid ingredients will also incite the growth in the demand for gum hydrocolloids.

Shortage of natural raw materials can be observed as a major challenge restraining the growth of the gum hydrocolloid market. The irregular supply of such raw materials will subsequently hike their prices, and increase the production costs of using gum hydrocolloids as additives. The seasonal production nature of gum hydrocolloids can also limit the usage of available raw materials and affect the growth of the global gum hydrocolloids market.
