Key Market Trends

Growing Demand for Pectin

Pectin is used as a gelling and thickening agent and stabilizer in a broad range of fruit products, such as marmalades, fruit-based preparations for yogurts and desserts, and bakery products. It is also used in confectionery, such as jam and jellies, to give them the structure of a gel. The major advantages of incorporating pectin in food and other products are that it can reduce cooking time, improve texture and color, and increase the shelf life. It is also widely used in the pharmaceutical industry for wound healing preparations and specialty medical adhesives. Moreover, pectin is a vital ingredient for industrial use. Industrial pectin products are extracted from natural plant-based raw materials at low pH using the addition of mineral acid to create controlled acidity.

The future growth trend in North America is expected to be positive, given the increasing awareness and consciousness among the population about healthy food and eating habits. The growing confectionery market in the United States is driving the market for gelling agents, especially those used in candies. Their function as thickeners in the bakery industry is also fueling the demand for gelling agents.
