Agar resin is a gelatinous polysaccharide which is derived from red algae and seaweed. It is often used in food products as a vegetarian alternative for gelatin. In food industry, it is generally used as a thickening agent for soups, curries, desserts and can also be used in jams, pudding, custards and jellies. It is composed of two components, a linear polysaccharide called agarose and a mixture of tiny molecules called agaropectin. Besides its use in food it is also used in pharmaceuticals and microbiological where it is employed as solid substrate to hold the culture media.

The increasing demand for agar in pharmaceutical, food & beverages, cosmetics, and nutraceutical applications is driving the market for agar resin. The increasing awareness in people about vegan diet and its benefits is boosting the market demand. For instance, the use of almond and coconut milk instead of cattle milk has increased benefits. Almond milk is rich in Vitamin E which has exceptional skin and hair benefits. Additionally, agar resin is high in fiber which makes it useful remedy for constipation and obesity. It is also used in microbiology and biology labs for RNA and DNA analysis.

Growth of the agar resin market is expected to limit due to the limited availability of the seaweed from which it is produced, thus hindering the overall market growth.
