The consequence of COVID 19 Outbreak

Covid’19 caused aggregate demands to take a nosedive. As the consumer side shrunk, its demand, production, and supply chain deteriorated during the lockdowns. In addition, the uncertainty in financial markets and overall chaos in the international markets caused a stagnancy in the industrial soy flours sector. As a result, the market experienced negative and underwhelming growth.

However, with covid reopening and recovering consumer confidence, there is potential for the industrial soy flours industry to regain its speed. As lockdowns decrease and financial markets continue to find their bearings and stabilize, the industrial soy flours market is expected to show positive signs of growth in the upcoming times.

Growing Demand for Sustainable Products

The thriving interest in sustainability is a vital opportunity for the industrial soy flours sector. Ecological concerns continue to expand as the sense of social responsibility rises. With consumers shifting towards renewable substitutes, soy glue made from soy flour- can help the sector boom.

In addition, manufacturers are looking for cost-efficient procedures to improve their competitive edge and profitability. That is why the application of industrial soy flours for industrial fermentation is increasing every passing moment. The fermentation allows stakeholders to produce vital and valuable products, including citric acid and ethanol. As more producers start employing industrial fermentation, the worldwide industrial soy flours market can experience the push it needs for further development. 

Limited R&D, Lack of Investment, and Unexplored Application Areas

One of the biggest concerns for the industrial soy flours market is the lack of investment in research and development. Smaller players and less-developed economies still are not funded enough to carry out extensive research. That is restraining them from finding the potential of industrial soy flours in boosting their operations and improving their efficiencies.

Insufficient awareness of the application of industrial soy flours is a critical concern today. In addition, while the global soy flour market is quite extensive and well-versed, the niche of the industrial soy flours sector is still relatively new and limited in several countries. That is yet another challenge to overcome in the upcoming years.

Furthermore, resin replacement is still quite costly, and hence, smaller players are still unable to incorporate it into their production process. More studies to avail the benefits of soy flours for processing and factory use can undoubtedly expand the international market for industrial soy flours even more. A lot of players are now investing a considerable amount in the R&D of industrial soy flours in order to explore its potential applications. Cargill, ADM, CHS, Danisco, Soja Austria, Goldenseal, Harvest Innovations, Vippy Industries Ltd., Devansoy Inc., and Gushen Group are some of the prominent players in the global industrial soy flours industry.
