Report Outlook

The global pectin market size was valued at USD 1.06 billion in 2017 and is forecasted to grow at a CAGR of 6.4 % from 2018 to 2026. Pectin are biopolymers that are used in several applications mainly in the food and medical industry. The major raw material used for pectin production is apple and dried citrus peel. Other raw materials, which contain the substance in a large amount, are pears, guavas, plums, quince, oranges, & gooseberries and other citrus fruits. While soft fruits such as grapes, cherries, and strawberries contain fewer amounts.

Pectin can be produced commercially and naturally. Commercially, it is produced as a white to light brown powder, extracted mainly from citrus fruits. It is added in food & confectionery mainly because it lessens cooking time, enhances color & texture and also enhances shelf life for jellies and jams. Industry participants are focused on development of new and novel technologies to enhance product differentiation. Multinationals enjoy their advantage and power of investing huge funds in research & development activities and develop novel and enhanced products for the end-user industries and hence are moving ahead of the small-scale market participants. The companies are involved in development of new microwave-based technology. This technology could help to generate the starch and other valuable food ingredients from drinks and food processing waste.

Regional Analysis

Asia-Pacific is expected to witness the highest growth rate in terms of market revenue. Strong demand and availability of raw material in the countries such as China and India are expected to benefit the market in the region. The supply of major raw materials such as citrus, apple pomace, and other raw materials are currently squeezed. In the first quarter of 2016, there was an estimated shortage of over 400-500 metric ton in the North America region alone. The massive shortage in the production and supply globally is expected to result in the rise of cost of the product. In addition, various pectin producers globally have also proposed a rise in the pricing by 30% in the following years.

From past two to three years, the import from Brazil has increased significantly. The nation is the largest producer of pectin, followed by Denmark and Mexico. Argentina is also one of the major countries for the production of raw material citrus fruits. However, unfavorable weather patterns and reducing demand for lime in the country has resulted in fewer lime trees plantation.
