Food and Beverage Hydrocolloids Market

The hydrocolloids market is estimated to grow at a significant rate in upcoming years. The demand for hydrocolloids is driven by the rise in demand for convenience food from the food industry. The global hydrocolloids market is growing due to the changing lifestyles and eating habits among consumers. The demand for hydrocolloids is also attributed to the consumer awareness on diet, nutrition, and natural products available.


The food & beverages segment is projected to be the largest segment in the market for hydrocolloids during the forecast period. The food & beverages segment is projected to be the fastest-growing segment during the forecast period. Hydrocolloids are widely used in dairy products, followed by confectionery, meat & poultry products, beverages, bakery, sauces & dressings, and other applications. The reason for the increasing use of hydrocolloids in the food industry is its ability to modify the properties of food as an emulsifier, stabilizer, gelling agent, and fat replacer.


The guar gum segment is projected to account for the fastest growth during the forecast period. Guar gum is widely accepted as an ingredient in various applications including food & beverages, pharmaceuticals, and cosmetics. Its multifunctional properties increase its adoption in end use applications. Food grade guar gum occupies a major share in the hydrocolloids market, due to its high demand in the food & beverages industry mainly from the frozen food and confectionery sectors. 


The animal segment is projected to dominate the market during the forecast period. The most widely consumed hydrocolloids are gelatin, which is derived from animal sources. Gelatin is a translucent, colorless, and flavorless proteinaceous material derived from collagen, using hydrolysis in acidic (type A) or basic (type B) solutions, followed by hot water extraction. Commercially, it is produced using the skin, hides, or bones of different animal sources, such as beef, pork, and fish.


The North American hydrocolloids market is driven by its application in premium and clean label food products. The US has a large market for bakery, confectionery, convenience food, and packaged food products; hence, it constitutes a major share in the market. Consumers in the US are calorie-conscious, due to which low-calorie and low-fat foods are popular in the country. The increasing prevalence of obesity and cardiac diseases has led to an increasing preference for natural and low-calorie food products among consumers. The growth of the food industry and the increased usage of natural food ingredients and additives drive the market for hydrocolloids in North America.


Key players include Ingredion (US), Cargill (US), DowDuPont (US), Darling Ingredients (US), ADM (US), and Kerry (Ireland).
