Pectin Powder Market | One the Most Booming Industry in Upcoming Years Due to Global Demand in Industry by 2027

In its new study, ESOMAR-certified market research and consulting firm Future Market Insights (FMI) offers insights about key factors driving demand for pectin powder. The report tracks the global sales of pectin powder in 20+ high-growth markets, along with analyzing the impact COVID-19 has had on the food and beverage industry in general, and pectin powder in particular.

Pectin belongs to the group of hydrocolloids derived from citrus fruits and apples that is used as a gelling agent in food and a variety of other purposes. Pectin powder is widely used in the production of jams and jellies. Besides this, its consumption has been associated with a number of health benefits, including joint pain relief, arthritis treatment, inflammation treatment, digestive aid, and so on. Pectin powder is a polysaccharide carbohydrate found in and around the cell wall.

Gum hydrocolloids, like pectin powder, xanthan gum, guar gum, gellan gum, gelatin and others find application in different functional foods as they help to improve stability and provide viscosity to food and beverages.  Hydrocolloids is used to convert food products into their semi solid food components due to their adhesive nature. Use of gum hydrocolloids in processed food is expected to result in rise of pectin powder globally.

Increasing interest in organic, herbal, and fruit-based goods, resulting from rising cases of diabetes, obesity, and cardiac issues will fuel the demand for pectin powder. The advent of ‘superfruits,’ a concept that refers to highly nutritious fruits, exemplifies this. More 25,000 super fruit-derived products are available in the market today. Given the pectin’s impressive nutrient profile, pectin and its derivatives fit right in. Pectin powder contains pectin, pectolytic enzymes, carotenoids, fiber, vitamin B, proteins, and other salts in addition to vitamin C. From a market standpoint, the fruit’s low calorie and fat-free nature make it appealing.

Pectin-based goods are comparatively more expensive due to their exotic and export-dependent nature. When compared to synthetic vitamin C, the high price is due to higher production costs. This further limits their appeal to a selective group of people, such as those who live in cities and earn a lot of money. This is a restraining factor which reduces the demand of pectin powder.

“Manufacturers are tilting towards the use of pectin powder in the production of non-alcoholic beverages and as a flavorless additive to improve the consistency of packaged food such as jams & jellies, a trend which is majorly influencing the pectin powder adoption,” says the FMI analyst
