Seaweed Hydrocolloids Global Market is Projected to Reach 180K Metric Tons Valued at $2.3 Billion by 2024.
Industry Experts, Inc. introduced a unique market research report on global Seaweed Hydrocolloids. The new report entitled “Global Seaweed Hydrocolloids Market – Agar, Alginates and Carrageenan” reveals that the Food & Beverages consumes the lion’s share globally with an estimated 94k metric tons in 2018.
Hydrocolloids are a diverse group of long chain polymers which interact with water to form colloid systems of solubilized particles either in the form of gel or a sol (liquid) system. Commercially available hydrocolloids are obtained from several sources: isolated from plants and seaweed without chemical modification; obtained by fermentation; plant-derived hydrocolloids that are chemically modified; and extracted from animals. Seaweed hydrocolloids are commonly extracted from wild and cultivated red and brown seaweed. The principal commercial seaweed hydrocolloids are agar-agar, alginates, and carrageenan.
This report explores the market of seaweed hydrocolloids types comprising Agar-Agar, Alginates and Carrageenans. The study also analyzes the key end-use applications of seaweed hydrocolloids including Animal Feed, Food & Beverages, Pharmaceuticals & Healthcare, Cosmetics & Personal Care, and Industrial/Technical applications. The study comprehensively provides an in-depth analysis for each product type in various major applications and vice-versa.
