These insights are included in the report as a major market contributor.

Guar gum powder is obtained from the guar plant, which is commonly found in India and Pakistan. It is a free-flowing powder that is whitish to yellowish in color with a slight odor. Guar gum powder has a very fine texture and has an excellent thickening capacity with high solubility in both cold and hot water. Nowadays, drilling companies utilize guar gum powder to increase the viscosity of water, which is further used for extracting oil and natural gas from tight rock formations.        

Guar gum powder finds numerous applications in a variety of industries. As a food preservative, it emulsifies, binds, moisturizes, thickens, stabilizes and suspends many liquid-solid systems and prevents the formation of ice crystals in frozen products. It is also used to impart softness and sponginess, enhance the texture and structure, increase the shelf life and improve the moisture retention in bakery items. Apart from this, guar gum powder is added in cosmetics and pharmaceuticals as a thickener, conditioner and viscosifier in toothpaste and shampoos, a binder in tablets, and as a mild laxative and soluble dietary fiber. Also, guar gum is used to thicken the dye solutions in textile and carpet printing, leading to more sharply printed patterns. Moreover, one of the essential applications of guar gum powder lies in petroleum extraction, significantly in the area of hydraulic fracturing. The powder also acts as an effective gelling agent and is an excellent lubricant, owing to which it is employed in oil well stimulation for reducing gel lumping.
