The global banana powder market was worth US$ 898 Million in 2018. Bananas represent the world’s most consumed fresh fruit and the fourth most important food crop in terms of the gross value of production. Unlike raw bananas, banana powder has a shelf-life of almost two years when stored in a cold storage facility in the absence of oxygen. It finds applications in various industries ranging from cosmetics and food to pharmaceutical and feed industries, which has encouraged its production across the globe.
Banana powder helps to strengthen bones, improve digestion, nutrition absorption and vision, prevent dehydration, regulate blood pressure and relax muscles. In addition, it is highly convenient to use, which leads to low to no product wastage and residue after usage. Moreover, as it restores all the essential nutrients and properties of the raw fruit, it is employed in various recipes in place of bananas. It also helps in increasing the shelf life and utilization of bananas and reduces post-harvesting losses. Apart from this, clinical trials are being conducted to establish the usage of banana powder in the pharmaceutical industry. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market value to reach US$ 1,311 Million by 2024, growing at a CAGR of 6.4% during 2019-2024.
