64,000 MT of Guar gum seed will required for Kharif sowing in India

Last year total  Guar cultivation area in India was 55,81,216 Hectare . It is expected that due to Good price of Pulses and other commodity there will be 30% drop in Guar cultivation area.  If we deduct this 30% area from last year cultivation area then it is expected that there will be 40,00,000 hectare area under guar cultivation.

For this 40,00,000 hectare guar gum seed cultivation area  there will be requirement of 64,000 MT of guar seed for sowing in next two month.  If is good amount to generate a good demand for Guar seed in this lean period. There will be vacuum of guar seed in market. 

We can see a price rise in guar seed and guar gum. Guar may touch INR 3,500 / 100 Kg and Guar Gum INR 6,000/100 Kg. Same time if crude price rise then Guar seed will get good support from two fundamental reason.

Fundamentally Guar seed or Guar gum is very strong even in this lean period

Fundamentally Guar is very strong commodity unfortunately it is stuck in crude prices. It is highly industrial product and demand of Guar remains in market throughout the year.  Even in this lean period. Guar Gum Powder Exporter is running with net profit of Rs 12 /Kg seed from seed processing to guar gum powder and churi korma export.  Guar Split Exporter is working on Rs 8/Kg guar seed from gaur seed processing to guar gum split export. A normal guar seed processor is working on Rs 4/Kg seed after selling material in local market. That is around 30 %, 25% and 8 % profit. This profit is calculated after dedicating all the costs.

Market of Guar derivatives like HPG, CMHPG, Kenotic Guar is still very Strong.  They are being traded at Rs 150/ Kg, to Rs 250/Kg . Even Indian companies are importing Ketonic guar at 700/kg. I don’t think that there is any week fundamental for Guar. Guar seed is already having good support from Guar Churi and Guar Korma up to 28/Kg in open market. Guar Churi Korma is an important source of protein for animal feed . The nearest competitor of Guar Korma is Soya meal which is traded at Rs 38-39/Kg in Market. Some soya industries are using Guar Korma to increase the protein content in their produce

Govt Should come with some positive steps, Govt must ban use of Xanthan gum from all food ingredients. Nestle is already taking this step in USA. If the domestic demand will increase, then This commodity will get good support and it will give a good return to farmers.

In this season farmers are more attracted toward Pulses so Guar cultivation area will also come down and might be this over supplied stock will settle down in this year.  There are also possibilities that in long term Crude prices will also improve.  Cement industry can also create very good demand of guar gum powder. Guar Gum powder has good water retention capacity which is required for hardening of Cement. 

Very soon we may get very  good news on uses of guar in new industry which may consume ten times to today's guar seed production domestically and internationally.

Major demand of guar Gum powder comes from Oil and natural Gas industry. Rate of crude oil has fallen drastically due to miss math in demand and supply. Right now it is recovering slowly and slowly. Within one or two day It may cross USD 50/ barrel.  Guar gum prices will get a solid support if Crude prices remain more than USD 50 /Barrel. This will lead to increase in Oil rigs and further fracking activities.

Guar seed and Guar Gum prices will improve during next two months. If condition will remain stable, then guar seed will cross INR 4000/100 Kg and Guar Gum split will cross INR 8000/100 Kg. New contract will be signed in new financial year and.  There is also possibility that production area of Guar seed will come down due to more profit in other commodities.  Farmers would prefer other crop Guar gum seed cultivation.  In this new financial area supply will remain tight and demand will increase. Demand from other industries will also increase. Other industries are adopting Guar gum slowly and slowly.
