It is primarily produced from apples, carrots, cherries, quince, plums, and the peel and pulp of various citrus fruits. Pectin manufacturing involves multiple steps, including extraction by hydrolysis, filtrations, clarification, precipitation, and purification. It is widely used to prepare confectionery, drugs, textiles, and personal care products. Pectin is a vegan product that improves blood sugar levels, promotes a healthy weight, and treats gastrointestinal disorders. As a result, it finds extensive application across the food and beverage (F&B), pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, and textile industries.

The rising product utilization in the F&B industry is one of the primary factors driving the market growth in GCC. Pectin is widely used as an emulsifier, gelling, stabilizer, and thickening agent in various food products, such as jams, jellies, yogurt, fruit juices, frozen food, milk drinks, marmalades, baking products, and gummy candies. In addition to this, the widespread product adoption in low-calorie food items as a fat and sugar replacer is acting as another growth-inducing factor. Furthermore, the extensive utilization of pectin in processed and convenience food products to increase shelf-life, reduce cooking time, improve texture, and maintain a low pH balance is favoring the market growth. Apart from this, significant investments by several regional governments toward establishing advanced food processing facilities and promoting tech-driven food companies are propelling the market growth. Additionally, the recent development of microwave- and ultrasound-based methods to extract pectin from food processing by-products, which, in turn, promotes waste recycling, improves resource efficiency, and provides high yield, is positively influencing the market growth. Moreover, the rising product adoption in the pharmaceutical industry for drug delivery, wound healing, gene delivery, and cancer treatment is providing an impetus to the market growth. Other factors, including increasing consumer awareness regarding various product benefits, easy product availability across several e-commerce platforms, and rising incorporation of pectin in cosmetics, are anticipated to drive the market growth.
