Xanthan gum is a popular food additive that is widely used as a thickening agent or stabilizer. This natural polysaccharide is also used as an industrial biopolymer. It is one of the most adaptive elastic thickeners, and it works well in small quantities. Xanthan gum is highly soluble in hot and cold water, and it can absorb more water than its weight to form a gel. Aqueous solutions of xanthan are viscous at low polymer concentrations. Its unique advantages include greater viscosity at low concentrations; insensitivity to temperature, pH, and electrolyte fluctuations; and exhibition of pseudoplasticity. Xanthan gum is regarded as a non-hazardous ingredient for different brines, drilling, and fracturing fluids.

Xanthan gum is also used as a gelling agent and fat replacer in various applications in the food & beverages, pharmaceuticals and nutraceuticals, personal care, and other industries. It imparts uniform thickness to toothpaste and other similar products. Xanthan gum is used as an emulsifier, and it can prevent products from separating and falling apart. As a result, it is used in various oil-based salad dressings and cosmetics. Further, xanthan gum is added to improve texture, consistency, flavor, shelf life, and appearance of food products. Furthermore, several personal care and beauty products contain xanthan gum, and it provides the required thickness and free-flowing properties to these products. It also facilitates the suspension of solid particles in liquids. Xanthan gum has been associated with a variety of other potential health benefits, including weight loss, cancer-fighting abilities, and lowering bad cholesterol levels. Additionally, in pharmaceutical products, xanthan gum is utilized as a stabilizer in various formulations and suspensions such as vitamin supplements to prevent delamination due to temperature changes. Moreover, it is added to certain eye drops for preventing and treating ophthalmic disorders such as retinitis and choroiditis. Thus, the multifunctionality of xanthan gum is driving the market growth.

Impact of COVID-19 Pandemic on Xanthan Gum Market

The COVID-19 pandemic has drastically affected the sales and overall operations of industries across different regions owing to lockdown imposed for prolonged periods, restrictions enforced on international trades, shutdown of manufacturing units, travel bans that led to supply chain disintegration, shortage of raw materials, and so on. The shutdown of food & beverages plants in leading regions such as North America, Europe, and Asia Pacific has affected the global supply chain and negatively impacted the manufacturing, delivery schedules, and sales of various food & beverage ingredients. Xanthan gum is one of the key ingredients in various convenience food products, such as bakery goods, frozen food products, dairy products, and ready-to-drink (RTD) beverages. Xanthan gum manufacturers witnessed low demand owing to decrease in the sales of comfort food products during the lockdown periods. Moreover, the COVID-19 crisis adversely affected the global beauty industry in the first half of 2020. This hindered the demand for xanthan gum from the personal care industry. However, businesses are gaining pace with the relaxation of previously imposed limitations in different countries.
