The oil & gas segment, by application, is projected to be the largest revenue contributor in the guar gum market during the forecast period.
The oil & gas segment is accounted to hold the largest share in the guar gum market. In the oil field industry, guar gum is used as a deformer, surfactant, and synthetic polymer, which is suitable for all rheological requirements of water-based and brine-based drilling fluids. It enables fluid and water loss control, lubrication, and cooling of drill bits. A shift in focus towards unconventional sources of oil such as tight oil and shale oil, wherein guar gum is used for extraction, is projected to create potential opportunities for guar gum in the coming years.
The industrial-grade guar gum segment is projected to account for the fastest growth, by grade, during the forecast period.
The industrial-grade guar gum segment is projected to dominate the market during the forecast period. There has been high demand for guar gum in numerous industrial applications such as oil & gas, textile, painting, coating, mining & explosives, paper & printing, and detergents. Industrial-grade guar gum powder are used in various oil & gas industry applications such as oil well fracturing, oil well stimulation, oil recovery, oil well drilling, geological drilling, and water drilling, as it acts as a deformer, surfactant, and synthetic polymer in these applications. The rapid growth in oil drilling and oil recovery activities, along with increase in usage of guar gum for the extraction of unconventional sources of oil such as tight oil and shale oil, is expected to drive the demand for industrial-grade guar gum products.
The gelatin segment is projected to dominate the guar gum market, by type, during the forecast period.
