Prosperity of Industrialization to Drive Scleroglucan Market During 2018-2028


Scleroglucan Market Outlook: Exopolysaccharides obtained by a range of microorganisms find multifarious industrial applications in foods, pharmaceutical, and other industries as stabilizers, binders, emulsifiers, thickening agents, lubricants, and gelling agents. One such exopolysaccharide is Scleroglucan. It is a natural polysaccharide obtained by fermentation of the filamentous fungi Athelia rolfsii. Scleroglucan is intended for drug delivery system improvement. More accurately, scleroglucan is appropriate for the making of ocular formulations and sustained-release tablets. This rare Polysaccharide offers antiviral actions against Herpes Virus. Scleroglucan also possess usage in agriculture formulations. In a view to being a substitute for the Xanthan gum, scleroglucan may possibly be useful in food manufacturing where a heating process is involved, due to the thermal stability that it displays. Despite its unique thickening and stabilizing properties, which could be exploited in various foodstuff, at present scleroglucan is not used much due to cost constraints, which is a restraint of the market.

Emerging as the Replacement for Xanthan Gum, Scleroglucan is Generating Demand from Various Industries – Scleroglucan obtained by a selection of microbes are chemically well defined and have attained global attention due to their unique and novel physical properties. Scleroglucan is rapidly developing as a new and industrially important source of polymeric materials, which are gradually becoming economically competitive. The global scleroglucan market is on the rise owing to the increasing demand coming from several end users. Among all the industries, the oilfield industry is generating maximum demand; however, going forward, the food and beverage industry is expected to lead the market in the coming years. Scleroglucan is considered as a replacement for xanthan gum, and it also possesses much better properties than xanthan gum. It can also be used in cosmetics due to its unique features such as high water retention properties, and it also helps in reducing skin roughness. Its primary use in cosmetics is in a facial mask.Its superiority over other polysaccharides and emergence as a better substitute to xanthan gum is another dynamic boosting the scleroglucan market. This aspect has resulted in the maximization of demand from various sectors including oilfield, cosmetics, agrochemicals, and pharmaceuticals.
