Citrus Fiber Market

Food Grade Citrus Fibers to Yield nearly 60% Revenue in the Global Market: Fact.MR Report

Published : 26 Jul 2021 Industry: Food & Beverage

A recent report by Fact.MR investigates that the citrus fiber market is expected to surpass US$ 500 Mn by 2031, growing at a healthy CAGR of nearly 6% for the forecast 2021-2031 forecast period. Growth is reliant on increased consumption of clean-label foods to maintain healthy lifestyles.

From 2016 to 2020, sales of citrus fibers expanded at a CAGR exceeding 4%, closing in at US$ 300 Mn. As the COVID-19 pandemic unfolded, a paradigm shift was observed in consumer eating habits, switching over to natural alternatives. This significantly heightened prospects for citrus fibers.

Industry growth for pectin foods has increased significantly in recent years. Shelf-life in breads has been increasingly paying attention to citrus peels. Pectin is produced by juice extraction from citrus, lemon and orange. The manufacturers use the pectin as a gelling agent in jellies and jams.

Key Takeaway from the Market Study

  • By application, citrus fibers demand for personal care to expand at 5% CAGR through 2031
