Food High Methoxyl Market

Industry Overview

Around the world, high methoxyl pectin is employed in a variety of useful foods. The majority of its uses are in the creation of jam and jelly. The jam and jelly are thickened with high methoxyl pectin. High methoxyl pectin and low methoxyl pectin differ in that high methoxyl pectin needs a lot of sugar to gel effectively, whereas low methoxyl pectin needs less sugar to gel. For this reason, low methoxyl pectin is employed in pastries and molecular recipes where less sugar is needed. Citrus peel and apple pomace are two examples of edible plant materials from which pectin is extracted as an aqueous extract. Pectin is a thickening chemical that is used to gel and thicken culinary products like jams, jellies, and other items. Pectin is a naturally occurring substance that is typically present in fruits like apples and oranges. A carbohydrate molecule called pectin is found in and around the cell walls of plants. They can be divided into high and low methoxyl pectin varieties.

The demand for high methoxyl pectin in the market has increased due to the rise in jelly and jam consumption. Additionally, the market is driven by the utilization of high methoxyl pectin levels in various foods. The market for high methoxyl pectin is hampered by the availability of various synthetic substances that serve the same purpose as high methoxyl pectin.

Impact of Covid-19 on the industry

The pectin market is quickly surpassing pre-COVID levels as a result of the dramatic V-shaped recovery in the majority of emerging economies, and a robust growth rate is anticipated during the projection period. The Covid-19 outbreak is having an impact on the market, and major players are using novel strategies to combat it. As crucial strategies, businesses in the pectin market industry are highlighting their contactless production and delivery procedures, pushing USP statements, putting an emphasis on product packaging, and expanding the exposure of their items on online platforms. Additionally, fruit pectin producers are attempting to expand into new regions where fruit pectin is widely available. Different expansion initiatives are being aggressively pursued by manufacturers, mostly in Asian regions.

Market Drivers

The growing demand for hydrocolloids from the food and beverage industry is propelling market growth.

Pectin's market is expanding as a result of the food and beverage industry's rising demand for hydrocolloids. It is included in food products as a hydrocolloid additive to add stability and increase viscosity. The food product can naturally coagulate the component of food ingredients thanks to pectin's adhesive qualities. Additionally, the pectin market is expanding due to the rising consumption of processed foods worldwide.

Rising demand for natural ingredients will drive the market growth

Pectin's market is expanding as a result of rising customer demand for natural components due to an increase in health-conscious consumers. The prevalence of chronic conditions like diabetes, obesity, and heart problems is rising, which has increased the demand for pectin. Pectin and its derivatives are also high in fibre, carotenoids, vitamin B, pectolytic enzymes, vitamin C, and other salts. Furthermore, the fruit is suitable for food ingredients because of its low-calorie and fat-free composition.

Market Restraints

The high cost of Pectin-based products will challenge the market growth

Pectin uptake is being hampered by the high cost of pectin-based goods due to greater production costs when compared to synthetic vitamin C. This constraint hinders the market expansion of pectin by restricting its consumption to a small segment of the population, such as high-class consumers and urban residents.

Stringent regulation will challenge the market growth

Pectin utilization in the food and beverage business is subject to stringent norms and restrictions, which is limiting market expansion. Additionally, the manufacturer is facing difficulties as a result of the rising demand for quality standards, which is preventing the pectin industry from expanding.
