What is Carrageenan?

Carrageenan represents a group of water-soluble sulphated polysaccharides that are extracted from aqua-based red algae or seaweed, post-cleansing foreign matter and removing residue through filtration. During product refining, it undergoes several processes, including drying, milling, alcohol precipitation, and gel press solutions that dewater the gel. Carrageenan provides antioxidant support, ensures gastric discomfort management, and helps treat coughs, bronchitis, tuberculosis, and intestinal problems. Apart from this, it maintains nutritional values, enhances product flavors, reduces food wastage, and extends its shelf life. As a result, carrageenan is used to thicken, emulsify, and preserve dairy, food, and meat products and beverages.

What Are the Growth Prospects and Trends in the Carrageenan Market?

The rapid expansion in the food and beverage (F&B) sector and the increasing consumption of ready-to-eat (RTE) food and beverages have intensified the widespread adoption of carrageenan as an emulsifying and stabilizing agent, which is primarily driving the market growth. Such products prevent product spoilage; therefore, it finds extensive applications in non-dairy confectionery and bakery goods. Additionally, the shifting consumer inclination toward plant-derived food and pharmaceutical commodities over animal-derived ingredients, such as gelatin, due to the emerging trend of veganism is supplementing the product demand in the market. Moreover, the extensive utilization of pharmaceutical carrageenan as an inactive excipient and binder in personal care and cosmetic products and novel drugs is propelling the market growth. Apart from this, the large-scale incorporation of carrageenan as a gelling agent in air fresheners and deodorants to control the item’s fluidity and ongoing product diversification by key players is supporting the market growth.
