Growing prevalence of obesity

Obesity, which was once considered a major problem only in high-income countries, has been increasingly prevalent in middle-income and low-income countries, and largely across urban regions. Statistical records suggest that the number of overweight children below the age of 5 in Africa have increased by around 50% since 2000.

Consequently, more and more consumers are opting for low-fat and low-calorie foods. This is expected to propel the demand for various food additives, including cellulose gum, which is widely used to lessen the fat content of foods items. Rising occurrence of obesity and the subsequent shift in lifestyle choices will present lucrative growth opportunities for CMC manufacturers.
