The Hydrocolloids Market size was valued at USD 13.14 billion in 2021 and is predicted to reach USD 20.20 billion by 2030 at a CAGR of 4.95% from 2022 to 2030.


Increasing use of hydrocolloids in the healthcare industry as wound dressings for acute wounds owing to its capability to maintain a consistent temperature and maintain acidic pH level in the wound, which reduces bacterial growth and allows connective tissue and collagen to form, is driving the growth of the hydrocolloids market.

New York, Jan. 10, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- announces the release of the report "Hydrocolloids Market by Type, by Application, by Source, by Industry Vertical - Global Opportunity Analysis and Industry Forecast, 2022 – 2030" -

However, the hydrocolloids market growth is restricted by stringent government regulations across the world regarding the use of food additives including hydrocolloids and an inadequate supply of raw materials. On the contrary, increasing adoption of ready-meal products and convenience food that use hydrocolloids to enhance quality and shelf life of these food products is expected to create ample opportunities in the coming years.
