The Global Calcium Alginate Market size is projected to grow at a CAGR of 3.6% during the forecast period, 2028. The North American region dominates this market with a share of about 35%.
Calcium alginate is a natural polysaccharide obtained from the cell wall of brown algae. It can be processed into different forms, such as high-molecular-weight calcium alginates (HMW) and low-molecular-weight calcium alginates or gels (LMW). The properties of calcium alginate are determined by the average molecular weight. Calcium Alginates that have an MGW around 200 kDa to 300 kDa, show high water-binding capacity and low shrinkage ratio, while those with an MW below 30kda can be processed into different forms such as sheets or cubes. The specific surface area (SSA) is also dependent on the type of calcium alginate being used. HMWs exhibit greater SSA than LMWs due to their large size (>200 nm).
Calcium alginates provide benefits in many areas including food production; pharmaceutical applications for drugs that need time-release action; medical & clinical application for wound care products and controlled release devices; and industrial application for oil well drilling fluids.
On the basis of Type, the market is segmented into High M Calcium Alginates and High G Calcium Alginates. High M calcium alginates are more popular in pharmaceutical applications while high G calcium alginate is preferred for industrial applications because they do not dissolve in water as easily as their counterparts do.
High M Calcium Alginates are used to thicken, stabilize and retain water in food products such as ice cream. High M Calcium Alginates are used for antacid treatment, as well as with other treatments to relieve heartburn and indigestion (acidity), regulate blood clotting, prevent kidney stone formation, reduce elevated liver function tests.
High G Calcium Alginates are used to thicken and stabilize food products such as milk, curdled dairy sauces, salads, and dressings. It can also be used in the production of pharmaceuticals that need time-release action.
On The basis Of Application, the market is segmented into Medical And Clinical, Pharmaceutical, Food And Beverage, Industrial, and Others.
Medical & Clinical application includes wound care products (dressings) and controlled release devices for medicines with a long duration of action or drugs which would otherwise have been destroyed by stomach acids before they could reach their site of activity in the body e.g., antiulcerants). In this field calcium alginate is one component of a matrix of materials, such as calcium sulphate and sodium alginate.
The Pharmaceutical application includes the use of calcium alginates in controlled release formulations to provide a sustained-release or timed delivery profile for drugs that would otherwise have been destroyed by stomach acids before they reached their site of activity e.g., antiulcerants). In this field, it is one component in a matrix with other polymers (e.g., hydroxypropyl methylcellulose) and has similar properties but higher viscosity than sodium alginate which is often used instead because it is cheaper. The Food And Beverage Field covers its usage in dairy products like milk, curdled sauces, salad dressings, etc.). Industrial applications mainly consist of use in paper, adhesives, and textiles.
On the basis of Region, the market is segmented as North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and Middle East & Africa. The North American market is the largest producer of calcium alginate and has a large market share. The North American region is followed by Europe, Latin America, Asia Pacific, and Middle East & Africa in terms of production volume.
Asia Pacific has seen the highest growth rates among all regions over the last five years and will continue to do so during the forecast period 2021-2028 due to its large population base coupled with increased awareness about health benefits associated with the consumption of food products made from high-quality ingredients like calcium alginates that are leading manufacturers to invest more into production facilities within APAC countries such as China, India, and Indonesia.
