DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The "Food Thickeners Market Analysis, By Product (Starch, Hydrocolloids, Protein), By Application (Bakery, Confectionery, Beverages, Dairy), By Region, And Segment Forecasts, 2014 - 2025" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.
The global food thickeners market is expected to reach USD 18.9 billion by 2025
Growing demand for flavored beverages and carbonated drinks is expected to propel growth over the forecast period.
Major players in the industry are the global conglomerates with high production volume and wide regional presence. CP Kelco, DuPont, and ADM are some of the key players involved in manufacturing food thickeners. These companies compete on the basis of price and product quality, thereby triggering competitive rivalry.
Starch and its derivatives are widely preferred owing to their low cost, wide availability, and high-shelf life properties. Hydrocolloids such as pectin and various types of gums are used as thickeners owing to their gelling, thickening, and superior stability properties. However, the high cost of hydrocolloids is expected to hamper their growth.
Manufacturers in the industry stock raw materials to avoid supply shortages and eliminate third-party intermediaries. Manufacturers also emphasize on product innovation in spite of challenges such as discrepancies in the supply chain and raw material price volatility, which accounts for a major share of the overall production cost.
The key players in the industry including Cargill Inc., Archer Daniels Midland Company, DuPont, and CP Kelco accounted for 70% of the overall revenue share
