Pectin Market Report and Forecast 2017-2022


Pectin, with the chemical formula C6H10O7, is a structural heteropolysaccharide present in the primary cell walls of terrestrial plants. It was discovered by Vauquelin in 1790 when he found its existence in fruit juices. Nowadays, it is produced on an industrial level by drying, precipitating and filtering citrus peels with ethanol and hydrochloric acid. Pectin has well-diversified applications across various industries. It is used in the food industry as a gelling and thickening agent and as a food stabiliser. It also helps in reducing syneresis in jams and marmalades and in increasing the gel strength of low-calorie jams. Pectin has a number of medicinal characteristics as well, it is used to cure constipation and diarrhoea, and as a demulcent in throat lozenges. Pectin also acts as a stabiliser in cosmetic products. During 2011-2016, the global pectin market grew at a CAGR of around 10%. The demand for pectin is driven by drinking and spoon able yoghurts, and jam and preserves which account for the majority of its consumption.
