Xanthan Gum Market Trends

  • Rising trend of veganism to boost the market growth

The utilization of vegan products in the food sector has accelerated due to the rapidly rising vegan population on a scale. Vegans make up 1.1% of the world's population. Hence, there will be roughly 88 million vegans in the globe as a whole in 2023. This element directly influences the value growth of the xanthan gum market, the rising vegan population, and other macro drivers, including the increased demand for convenience and ready-to-eat products and a steady increase in GDP per capita. Therefore, the growing trend of veganism has enhanced the xanthan gum market CAGR in recent years.

The oil industry's rapid expansion is probably good news for the xanthan gum business. In this business, xanthan gum is frequently employed as an economical and environmentally friendly oil drilling fluid. It strongly resists alkalis, acids, salts, and high temperatures. Due to its suspending qualities, xanthan gum can improve mud permeability and lower drilling pressure loss. In addition, well wall stabilization and decreased reservoir damage come with increased drilling efficiency. Moreover, due to its superior rheological qualities, xanthan gum is chosen over CMC, polyacrylamide, modified starch, and other polysaccharides like guar gum in the development of oilfields. Thus the rapid expansion of the oil industry is another factor driving the growth of the xanthan gum market revenue.

Xanthan Gum Market Segment Insights

Xanthan Gum Type Insights

The xanthan gum market segmentation, based on fusion type, includes dry and liquid. In 2020, the dry market category held a greater market share with respect to the xanthan gum market revenue. When combined with any liquid, dry xanthan gum quickly disperses and produces a viscous, stable solution. Dry xanthan gum may dissolve in both warm and cool solutions. However, the liquid xanthan witnessed significant growth. Xanthan gum works wonders to stabilize emulsions, suspend solids in liquids, and prevent purees from separating. Hence, rising applications of liquid xanthan gum for xanthan gum positively impact the market growth.

Xanthan Gum Function Insights

The xanthan gum market data has been bifurcated by function into thickener, stabilizer, fat replacer, coating material, and others. In 2021, the category-selling thickeners held the biggest market share. The projection year is likely to accelerate the segment's growth due to the increased demand for edible thickening agents in various culinary products, including sauce, pudding, soup, wheat flour, and sweets.
