Global Xylan Market: Overview
Xylan, a key hemicellulosic component of hardwoods, exhibits large polydiversity and polymolecularity, which contributes to its wide range of usage. A large spectrum of nutritional and non-nutritional application of the compounds can be attributed to the use of plant cell wall polysaccharides in myriad consumer products. Xylans form major constituents of a wide variety of products used in everyday life across the world. They are key functional ingredients in baked products and are extensively used as feed constituents for the livestock industry.
Over the past few years, they have formed major constituents of numerous value-added products, most notable of which is xylitol. This key constituent has been extensively used as natural food sweeteners and for reducing dental cavities. Xylan has also gathered steam among diabetics as a sugar substitute. In the oil and gas industries, xylans find substantial application in the oil and gas industry for preventing corrosion. Furthermore, the compound has gathered immense traction as its usage as a high-performance coatings in numerous end-use industries. Xylan-based coatings work well in demanding chemical environments and high temperatures.
The study presents elaborate assessments and carefully-drawn insights on the key application areas. The analyses also help investors identify lucrative avenues and the developments that will keep some application segments lucrative throughout the assessment period of 2018–2026.
