What are the Uses of Gellan Gum?

Gellan gum finds its application in many hygiene and cosmetic products, in particular lotions, masks, creams, masks, and others. This is attributed to the solid retention and texture that gellan gum provides in sunscreens, as it stabilizes the oily factor in cosmetics. Gellan gum finds usage as a stabilizer, emulsifier, and thickener and is used individually or in combination with another product to develop textures. Gellan gum forms a transparent gel that is suspended with a minimum viscosity during the formation of the gel solution. Other advantages of gellan gum include better thermal stability, a degree of structure, and setting temperature, however, depending on the gellan gum used and the concentration of gelling ions used to formulate the gellan gum for a particular product.

Recent Developments in Gellan Gum Market

  1. According to Trading Economics Statistics on the United States Disposable Personal Income, the disposable personal income in the U.S. averaged US$ 5,200.2 billion in 1959, which increased to US$ 15,742.81 billion in November 2018.

  2. Makers of gellan gum are expanding their creation amount to do the trick the expanding market request. Development of creation limit of gellan gum makers, developing interest for natural gelling substances for delivering nourishment and drinks. Be that as it may, getting the crude materials required for creating gellan gum, convoluted techniques utilized for framing gellan gum from lactose are preventing the market development.

  3. After one and a half year of construction, 1000 tons of annual gellan gum production capacity, the new CAIXIN SUCRE project got started. CAIXIN SUGAR invested more than RMB 80 million for this project, and it researched and designed this project with its own technicians. The raw material is based on our existing glucose syrup factory. This new Gellan Gum project is one of the ten main projects of GRUPO HENAN CAIXIN, which is the parent company of CAIXIN SUGAR.

Gellan Gum Market Drivers and Restraints:

The global Gellan Gum market is supposed to experience significant growth during the outlook period due to strong demand in food and beverage applications. It is used as an alternative to hydrocolloids in beverages and dairy products, thus boosting its demand in the food industry. Strong growth in the food and beverage industry in major global economies, including the United States, Europe, India and China due to the increasing dependence of consumers on packaged foods boost product growth over the next eight years. It is a water-soluble polysaccharide that is made by chemical fermentation of a sugar source. It is often available in two forms, namely high and low acyl content. Gum products with a low acyl Gellan content form fragile, firm and non-elastic gels, while the high-acyl version forms highly elastic, soft and non-fragile gels. The variation in the proportion of these two forms allows the production of a wide range of textures and formulations depending on the demand of the product in the end-use industry.

Gellan Gum allows the suspension and uniform dispersion of insoluble particles in milk from nuts and protein-enriched beverages. Product manufacturers must increase their production volumes to meet the growing market demand. Also, manufacturers organize several international events that promote the use of the product to increase clientele worldwide. However, several substitutes such as pectin, xanthan gum, guar gum, and locust bean gum, among others, are commercially available and can easily replace gellan gum. The greater availability of substitutes is presumed to hamper growth in the global gellan gum market during the forecast period.
