By Usage, the Texture segment is projected to dominate the market size in 2024

In the dairy industry, food stabilizers are essential additives that enhance product stability, texture, and prolong shelf life. Perishable dairy items, including yogurt, cheese, and ice cream, necessitate specific qualities such as creaminess, smoothness, and stability to preserve their desirable characteristics and freshness. Food stabilizers, including carrageenan, pectin, xanthan gum, and guar gum, play a crucial role in achieving these attributes. Carrageenan, for instance, functions as a thickener and stabilizer in ice cream, cheese, and yogurt, while xanthan gum improves the texture and stability of cheese products. Manufacturers leverage these stabilizers to minimize wastage and optimize production processes.

By Application, Dairy and dairy products  segment is expected to hold the largest market size for the year 2024
