Global Xanthan Gum Market: Overview
Xanthan gum is a polysaccharide derived from a bacteria called xanthomonas campestris through a pure-culture fermentation process. The xanthomonas campestris strain used to yield xanthan gum is non-pathogenic and non-toxic to animals and humans. Therefore, it is preferred over other substitutes in food applications. Xanthan gum is primarily employed in end-user industries such as oil & gas and food & beverage. Demand for xanthan gum is expected to increase significantly in the next few years considering the favorable regulatory policies regarding its use in food and beverages. Asia Pacific and North America dominates the xanthan gum market in terms of production and demand. Countries such as the U.S, Canada and China are expected to be the key consumers of xanthan gum during the forecast period. Antidumping duty on imports of xanthan gum from China and Austria is anticipated to hamper the market growth. Increasing demand for gluten-free products is estimated to offer major opportunities to the xanthan gum market in the next few years.
