Slow Market Growth at 3.31% CAGR Predicted amid COVID-19

Based on our analysis, the global market for hydrocolloids is expected to showcase slow-paced growth while exhibiting a CAGR of 3.31% in 2020. This is due to the imposition of lockdown announced by the government agencies that has led to the shutdown of several stores and other industrial activities globally. This has led to significant supply chain disruption and lower demand for raw materials impacting the market growth. However, the market is expected to recover steadily post-COVID-19 pandemic with growing awareness amongst people regarding natural and clean-labeled food products.
