Europe Alginates Market Size (2024 to 2029)

The size of the Europe Alginates Market is expected to be worth USD 133.18 million in 2024 and grow at a CAGR of 3.20% from 2024 to 2029 to achieve USD 155.89 million by 2029.

Alginates are a group of natural anionic polysaccharides obtained from the cell walls of brown algae. Alginate is a type of hydrocolloid extracted from brown algae. It has a variety of functional properties such as thickener, gel-forming ability, and use to form sodium and calcium films. Alginate is used in a variety of applications in the food, textile, printing, dyeing, pharmaceutical, and cosmetic industries. Alginate finds a wide range of medical industry applications due to its biocompatibility and ease of gelling. This product is widely used in the development of wound dressings due to its porous structure and high absorption capacity. It is also used in food products for its thickening and stabilizing properties. They are widely used in the food industry and are used in the preparation of jams, jellies, and marmalades. Increased use of sodium-calcium alginate fiber for wound healing is expected to drive the European Alginates market growth over the forecast period.

The key factors driving the growth of the European alginates market include increasing demand from various sectors, especially end-users, increasing awareness of the food and textile industry, increasing industrialization, continuous development, applications, and innovations. In addition, the textile industry trusts him. It carries out processes such as dyeing, printing, and design on cotton and jute fabrics. Alginate is easy to gel and has high biocompatibility, so it has a wide range of uses in the medical field. This product is widely used in the development of wound dressings due to its porous structure and high water absorption capacity. It also finds potential applications in the food and beverage industry due to its thickening, strong gelling, and film-forming properties. Major regulatory bodies such as the FDA and the European Commission have allowed the use of alginates in the food and beverage sector, which is expected to positively impact product demand.

Furthermore, the high acceptance of the products in the applications industry is expected to drive Europe's Alginates market growth. Companies innovate their latest products to attract buyers and increase profitability. Significant investments by alginate manufacturing companies and national governments to accelerate algae processing growth will help the industry grow. As the European Alginates market demand for algae to process other products, such as carrageenan gum, increases, the source of raw materials may be scarce. Due to its strong gelling properties, the increasing demand for alginates in the food industry is expected to boost market growth. Additionally, increasing product applications in the confectionery and confectionery sector are expected to drive Europe Alginates market growth over the forecast period. Significant investments by alginate manufacturing companies and national governments to promote algae processing are expected to help grow the alginate market. In addition, the wide adoption of products in the healthcare industry is driving the growth of the European Alginates market. Consequently, the textile industry uses alginic acid derivatives to print and design cotton, dyes, towels and scarves, rayon, and jute fabrics, which are also contributing to the growth of the market. Other factors are expected to further drive the European Alginates market, including a growing demand for biomedical compounds with customized physicochemical properties along with extensive use of the product as feed additives. Europe's Alginates market growth is expected to accelerate as demand for alginate increases in the food industry due to its excellent gelling properties. The rapid growth of the global food and beverage industry is one of the key factors in creating a positive outlook for the European Alginates market. Alginate is widely used as a natural additive for the production of various ready-to-eat (RTE) and convenience food products due to its thickening, gelling, and film-forming properties.

The European Alginates market continues to face instability in seaweed supply due to unsustainable production technologies, which may hamper overall growth to some extent. The increasing demand for algae in other applications, such as carrageenan gum extraction, may limit the availability of raw materials and impede the European Alginates market's growth.

COVID-19 is caused by SARS-CoV-2, which affects the respiratory system majorly. COVID-19 has spread at a rapid pace across the world. The first case was registered in Wuhan, China, in December 2019. World Health Organization (WHO) declared the novel coronavirus as a pandemic. Since then, all the countries have been restricted from following lockdown guidelines to control the spread of the coronavirus. Disruptions in the supply chain and manufacturing units, the demand for the alginates market declined, especially in the first half of 2020. However, the market is expected to have the previous shares by the end of 2021.
