Thus, significant growth of these industries will directly impact the guar gum market growth during the course of the next five years. The market for guar gum is expected to witness considerable growth during the coming five years owing to the fact that the changing lifestyles and eating habits of people across both developed and developing economies have propelled the demand for convenience foods in many parts of the world.  Guar gum is considered a natural gum that has led to significant growth in its applications in the food and beverage industry, such as dressings, milk products, and other processed foods, due to its excellent stabilizing properties and its ability to enhance the shelf life of food products.

COVID-19 impact on Guar Gum Market:

The unique coronavirus outbreak impacted supply chains all around the world, resulting in decreasing packaged food and beverage consumption. Although demand for product delivery to the home increased, the market for outside food consumption fell more, affecting manufacturer profits. Guar gum demand could be harmed if food and beverage production is cut inadvertently.

The pharmaceutical sector has seen a significant shift in demand, research and development priorities, and approval timelines. In addition to consumption from other uses such as mining, paper manufacture, and the textile sector, persistent growth in chronic illnesses and an incessant demand for medicines will support the need for guar gum in the coming years.

Key developments:

  • In the year 2020, Agro gums, a prominent producer of Guar gums, will open a new manufacturing plant with a capacity of 30MT per day. The company's overall production capacity has increased to 45MT per day as a result of daily output.
