Carrageenan is extracted from red seaweed and comes under the family of linear sulfated polysaccharides. It finds applications in the food industry and is widely used for its thickening, stabilizing, and gelling properties. However, in recent years, it is gaining popularity as a food packaging material and as an alternative casing net and collagen film. In the food industry, carrageenan is extensively used as an ingredient in dairy products and meat. Now with its inception as an edible packaging material, packaging manufacturers are offering carrageenan films for the packaging of processed meat and poultry foods. Carrageenan film is available in clear and color format with no artificial coloring on it. These films do not affect the nutritional value of food and keep it safe for a long period of time with no-cross contamination of species.
Carrageenan Film Market: Market Dynamics: Edible packaging products have gained significant momentum in the last few years due to the increasing consumer inclination towards using more eco-friendly products. Plastic packaging is not biodegradable in nature and creates a lot of pollution in the environment which, in turn, will hamper its growth and create future growth prospects for the biodegradable packaging materials such as edible carrageenan films. The carrageenan film market is growing at a significant pace in the developed economies of the North American and European regions. The market is also expected to witness strong growth in the developing countries of the Asia-Pacific and Latin American regions. Carrageenan films offer exceptional high-barrier properties which could increase the shelf life of meat & poultry and dairy products. This is the major factor driving the growth of the global carrageenan film market. A recent trend noticed in the carrageenan film market is the high spending on research and development activities to discover new end-use applications in the edible packaging market. Biodegradable packaging materials are gaining popularity across the world due to the orientation of brand-owners towards sustainability initiatives and opting out of plastic packaging products. There are significant growth opportunities for the new entrants as well as existing manufacturers in the global carrageenan film market.
