Guar gum is widely used in industrial as well as food processing applications as a natural thickener, binding agent, emulsifier, flocculating agent, gelling and water barrier agent, wet-end strength additive, and sizing agent. It also finds application in the pharmaceutical, cosmetics, and oil and gas industries because of its water-proofing, thickening, gelling, adhesive, and hair and skin rejuvenation properties. Small-scale companies are predicted to give competition to established players with lower prices. Top companies usually have a strong distribution and sales network and raw material supply.
Need to Increase Shelf Life of Processed Food to Augment Demand
Application of guar gum as an additive is prophesied to increase in the processed food industry due to the benefit of improved shelf life. Changes in eating habits of people that raise demand for convenience food are foretold to push the requirement of guar gum. Besides the food and beverage industry, pharmaceutical is predicted to witness increased penetration of guar gum in the coming years. Nevertheless, the oil and gas industry is anticipated to show substantial consumption of guar gum due to the growth in shale oil and gas output.
Important Points to Remember
● Application of guar gum to increase in hydraulic fracturing and oil well drilling
● Industrial grade segment to grow at a remarkable CAGR during the forecast period
● Thickening agent and gelling agent to rise at a robust growth rate
● Others segment to gain a large share with high demand in the shale oil and gas industry
● Increased oil and gas exploration and production to help North America collect substantial share
The pricing analysis provided in this research study equips players with the information and data needed to determine the right price for their guar gum products. Price is one of the critical elements that works together with promotion and distribution strategies for successful product positioning and marketing. Pricing analysis becomes more important when a company needs to determine price structures and policies for its new products and services.

Industrial-grade guar gum is expected to exhibit a significant CAGR due to its high use in mud drilling and oil well stimulation and fracturing processes in oilfields. Among function segments, thickening agent and gelling agent are projected to grow at a telling CAGR due to increased adoption in the petrochemical and food industries. The others application segment which includes the oil industry is forecast to show high growth in the global guar gum market because of the rise in the number of drilling and exploration activities in emerging countries and the shale gas boom in North America.
North America is prognosticated to take charge of the global guar gum market in terms of revenue share as the US continues to show increases in the number of oil rigs and oil well drilling and hydraulic fracking activities. Government support for exploration and production activities in the oil and gas industry is anticipated to help North America gain growth in the global market. On the other hand, demand for guar gum is foreseen to increase in Asia Pacific due to the availability of technically recoverable resources and aggressive growth in urbanization.
