According to a new study by FMI, the pectin market value is estimated at ~US$ 921 Mn in 2021.

Pectin as a Solution to Various Complex Health Problems

For example, niacin is an organic chemical taken by various consumers to supplement their diet with vitamin B3 and various important nutrients. But, it is also known to cause skin flushing in the face and upper body parts, which previously was treated as an allergy. However, after deep research, it turns out that pectin helps in curing skin flushing caused by niacin, and skin flushing is not an allergy but a side effect of consuming more niacin. Similarly, pectin is known to treat ulcerated mouth and throat by simply applying it in the affected areas. Moreover, the replacement of chemicals with plant-based products in pharmaceuticals will continue to favor the growth of the pectin market.
