One trend in the market is technological advancements. Technological improvements, such as the introduction of metal scrappers, have helped the agar-agar gum industry to harvest large quantities of seaweed with less effort. New methods and processes have been introduced to extract agar-agar from seaweed, along with other techniques for cleaning, pretreatment, filtration and gelation, and dewatering.

According to the report, one driver in the market is growing demand from baking and confectionery industry. Bakery and confectionery products include products that are jellified for a prolonged shelf life and appealing look. The latter is vital because visual appeal plays an important role in the purchase decision of consumers, especially in the bakery industry. Agar-agar gum prevents the products from sticking and makes them more palatable. The availability of a variety of agar-agar gum in the market is driving its growth.

Further, the report states that one challenge in the market is price fluctuations. Fluctuations in the prices of agar-agar are generally very high, and there is a scarcity of algae from which agar-agar is made. The produce and yield that is obtained from the base raw material, seaweeds, is extremely limited, while its supply is also constrained.
