The global cassia gum market was valued at US$6.916 billion in 2021.

Cassia gum is a pale yellow powder used as an additive in various food, beverage, and animal feed products. It is manufactured from the Cassia Tora plant native to Central America. It is used as a stabilization, gelling, thickening, moisture retention, emulsifying, and texture enhancement agent in various food and beverages available in the market. The market for cassia gum is categorized into various segments, including the application and geographical location.

The popularity of cassia gum has grown significantly in the last few years mainly due to its various advantages and ability to improve the health and smoothness of the person’s skin. Cassia gum has become one of the most well-liked natural ingredients in the food and beverage industries. The growing application of cassia gum in various end-user industries such as dairy, animal feed, confectionary, beverages supplements, personal care, cosmetics, and nutraceuticals is also propelling the demand during the projection period. As a result, the demand for cassia gum powder has rapidly expanded worldwide, particularly in emerging economies such as India and China. The water-dispersible and non-toxic qualities of cassia gum have been well-known among manufacturers. As a result, it is a very useful additive for food and beverage products. Food safety is one of the numerous additional advantages of this natural ingredient. As a result, it is projected that the market for cassia gum will expand in tandem with the rising demand for organic food additives.

However, the availability of substitutes such as guar gum powder or sesbania gum powder, strict rules and regulations regarding its use in the food and beverage industry coupled with the growing incidence of allergies, is obstructing the growth of the global market for cassia gum during the analysis period.

The various applications of cassia gum powder across industries are driving market growth. 

One of the primary factors driving the growth of the global cassia gum market is the wide application of cassia gum powder in various end-user industries. Due to its extensive use in the pharmaceutical, food & beverage, cosmetic, and animal feed sectors, cassia gum demand is rising globally. Furthermore, demand for organic food additives is anticipated to fuel market expansion throughout the forecast period.

Cassia gum is an emulsifier, thickening, texturizer, foam stabilizer, and moisture retention agent. The powder is utilized in industrial and food applications. It functions as a texturizing agent in chicken goods, frozen dairy desserts, cheese, and dairy mixtures. Cassia tora powder is combined with hydrocolloids like Xanthan gum and carrageenan to create flawless gels with special qualities. It is also an additive in pet food and animal feed products. Cassia powder may be added to pet food and cow feed products, and both Europe, Japan, and India have approved this application.

Cassia gum powder is also extensively used in personal care, especially hair care products. The enhancement of hair conditioning through cassia gum powder in natural hair care formulations has also helped to drive up demand from the personal care industry. The cassia hydroxypropyltrimonium chloride polymers, which are generated naturally from the cassia Tora seeds, are helpful in the development of conditioning shampoos. Cassia gum also has applications in other industries, such as paper manufacturing, water treatment facilities, textiles, mining, and pharmaceutical and cosmetics.
