Xanthan Report 2010

  • The xanthan gum market, approx $450M, is driven by three main categories
  • Food, approx $194 m where sauces and dressings is the key application
  • Oil, approx $152 m, which is being targeted aggressively by the Chinese producers
  • Pharma/Personal Care, approx, $58 m, with toothpaste being the major application
  • There are two new growth opportunities, since last reporting, namely
  • Low juice containing beverages in Asia and Latin America
  • Toothpastes on a global basis

Growth between 2004 and 2009 has been estimated to have been a very healthy average of 6.5%/yr, from 70Kmt growing to 96Kmt, which however was lower than 2008 by 9.3% mainly due to significantly lower activity in the oilfield drilling industry. This type of growth is forecast to continue with volumes to almost 114Kmt which still would only represent 84% of nominal capacities.
