Preliminary research of Fairfield Market Research indicates a promising growth outlook for global karaya gum market during the course of next few years.

Rising Demand for Naturally Pharmaceutical Drugs to Bode Well for the Karaya Gum Market

With growing emphasis on use of natural products, pharmaceutical companies have been inclined towards polymers derived from natural forces in drug formulations. Products derived from natural ingredients and components are chemically inert and non-toxic, thus having little or no side effects on individuals as compared to their synthetic counterparts. In addition, karaya gum has good anti-microbial property apart from biocompatibility and non-allergic characteristics. This has fuelled its use in the pharmaceutical sector where it is used as a pharmaceutical excipient in applications such as tablets, hydrogels, beads, and buccoadhesive drug delivery system. Moreover, increasing consumer awareness regarding use of natural products has further elevated the use of natural components in pharmaceutical drugs, thus auguring well for the karaya gum market. That said, karaya gum is one of the potential candidates in the development of novel drug delivery systems (NDDS) along with other uses such as suspending agent in formulations, binding agent in tablets and dental adhesives and as a potential laxative. In this backdrop, growing demand for natural excipients in pharmaceutical formulations is expected to drive the growth of the karaya gum market on the global front.

Karaya Gum Market Growth to Remain Bullish Backed by Increasing Use in the Food and Beverage Industry

The use of karaya gum in the bakery and confectionery sector owing to its superior binding properties is expected to increase significantly in the coming years. Moreover, being a natural product, it does not cause any side effect or does not harm when consumed, unlike other artificial or synthetic binders. It is largely used in the food and beverages industry as a thickener and emulsifier in different food product applications. It also reflects key properties such as allowing dispersion of oil in water while stabilizing beverage products thus avoiding precipitation. Moreover, karaya gum is highly stable in environments with low pH, thus making it an apt and crucial ingredient for beverages. It also displays low viscosity in liquids and water without altering texture and flavour of the original product. These properties are encouraging food manufacturing companies to use karaya gum in their products and explore more applications of this natural ingredient. This factor remains instrumental in bolstering the growth of the karaya gum market.

Furthermore, the growing organic trend is also influencing the use of karaya gum in food. Companies producing and distributing karaya gum are leveraging this factor and introducing organic products targeting the health conscious customer segment. For instance, in 2020, Alland & Robert introduced organic karaya gum that can be used in food applications. This product can enhance the texture of the food product alongside improving the dietary fibre content as a prebiotic. It is also free from GMOs and pesticides making it a potential candidate for the food industry. In this background, the use of organic karaya gum is increasing in food products such as frozen foods, desserts, sauces, ice creams, and dietary products as it is an efficient natural texturing additive. Moreover, karaya gum can be consumed by vegans as it is naturally derived. The growing trend of veganism is expected to complement this aspect. For instance, over 2% of the total population in the United States is vegan, according to Vegetarian Resource Group. Consequently, the demand for naturally derived, organic products that can be consumed by vegan population is poised to fuel the growth of the karaya gum market worldwide.

Growing Clean Label Trend to Positively Impact the Karaya Gum Market

The rise in health conscious individuals, especially after the COVID-19 pandemic, has further triggered the clean label trend globally. Individuals are becoming aware regarding the ingredients used in products and are inclined towards consuming products that have natural ingredients that facilitate health and wellness. The demand for clean labels will continue to increase in the coming years with consumers placing high priority on various products that include recognizable ingredients. Owing to this trend, companies are securing raw ingredients and food material as processed under suitable or ideal conditions. That covers processes involving sorting, cleaning and product grading based on stringent norms related to hygiene, extraction, and other practices. That said, production of karaya gum with clean label is expected to provide a competitive advantage for companies over manufacturers of synthetic ingredients. This factor is expected to emboss a positive impact on the karaya gum market.

Asia Pacific to Provide Potential Opportunities for Karaya Gum Market

Asia Pacific region is expected to showcase high growth potential in the karaya gum market. Emerging nations such as India, and China are likely to remain at the helm of the Asia Pacific karaya gum market owing to rising use of the product in different end use applications. The region is also a major hub for companies operating in the food and beverages industry, pharmaceutical and cosmetics sectors. Karaya gum is widely used as emulsifier, and binding agent in food products, pharmaceutical products, and cosmetic lotions. This factor plays a vital role in driving sales of karaya gum in the region. Furthermore, the region reflects a business friendly environment with a huge consumer pool making it a lucrative revenue pocket for the karaya gum market.

Our Research Methodology

Considering the volatility of business today, traditional approaches to strategizing a game plan can be unfruitful if not detrimental. True ambiguity is no way to determine a forecast. A myriad of predetermined factors must be accounted for such as the degree of risk involved, the magnitude of circumstances, as well as conditions or consequences that are not known or unpredictable. To circumvent binary views that cast uncertainty, the application of market research intelligence to strategically posture, move, and enable actionable outcomes is necessary.
