  • Published Date: September 6, 2021

According to a new research report by Global Market Insights Inc., the Cyclodextrin Market size is set to surpass USD 390 million by 2027.

Cyclodextrins belong to the cyclic oligosaccharide’s family and are produced from starch by an enzymatic conversion. Cyclodextrins are mainly used in the pharmaceuticals, food & beverages, drug delivery, environmental engineering, chemical, and agriculture industries. They are complex agents, which help in the oral formulation of products. They are also used as food additives in food & beverages. They also extend the shelf life of the final product and enhance the sensorial qualities of the final product.

The COVID-19 pandemic has also resulted in rising health awareness among consumers. Consumers are also accepting nutritional supplements for better health and to improve the overall immune system. These factors are accelerating the cyclodextrin market as most of the dietary supplement products are in oral formulations. Moreover, patients, who have recovered from COVID-19 disease are also opting for nutritional supplements to revive their health, further increasing the cyclodextrin market demand.

Increasing demand for nutraceuticals is expected to drive the market growth

The global alpha type market surpassed USD 90 million in 2020. Increasing consumer awareness of personal health and well-being is anticipated to be a major factor boosting the dietary supplement market. This factor, in turn, will propel the alpha cyclodextrin market over the foreseeable timeframe. The increasing spending power of consumers in healthcare products in developed economies is also propelling market growth. Moreover, the increasing struggle among working population across the globe to fulfill daily nutritional requirements due to busy schedules is further increasing the demand for nutraceuticals. This factor is increasing the demand for alpha cyclodextrins; however, the high cost of alpha cyclodextrins compared to beta cyclodextrins is restraining the global market growth as it increases the cost of the final product.
