Asia Pacific Carrageenan Market Segment Insights

Kappa segment to account a large market share

Based on types, the market is divided into kappa, iota, and lambda. The kappa segment held a major market share of around 65% in 2019, and is expected to dominate during the forecast period. Kappa carrageenan is applicable in poultry rolls, turkey breast, and cooked cured ham. It forms gels with calcium and potassium salts as calcium creates a brittle and stiff gel. On the other hand, potassium produces an elastic and rigid gel. Kappa also provides the strong gels of all types of carrageenan.

Food industry segment to expand at a substantial CAGR

In terms of applications, the market is segmented into food industry, pharmaceutical industry, beauty & personal care industry, and others. The food industry is further segregated into dairy products, beverages, and others. The food industry segment is accounted for more than 70% of the market share in 2019. The growth of this segment is attributed to the rising demand for processed food products, as well as increasing product consumption in the dairy industry. Food & beverage manufacturers use carrageenan due to its ability to shift the rheology of food systems, including texture and viscosity. The dairy sub-segment is anticipated to expand at a high CAGR during the forecast period. Carrageenan is used as an additive in the dairy products, as it’s a safe food stabilizer that thickens and prolongs the shelf-life.

Asia Pacific Carrageenan Market By Applications

China to dominate the market

On the basis of geography, the market is categorized as Japan, China, Australia, India, Philippines, and Rest if Asia Pacific. China is anticipated to dominate the market during the forecast period. The regional market growth is attributed to the rapid industrialization and investment in R&D. China has built an economic model to evaluate the demand for seaweed.
