Market Outlook – Tapioca is extracted from the cassava root, also known as yucca, a plant native to Brazil. Granulated tapioca consists of small, starchy granules that are used to make tapioca pudding and to thicken gravies, pie fillings, stews, and soups. These grains don’t dissolve completely when cooked, so pies and puddings thickened with this product will have tiny tapioca balls as part of the finished product’s consistency. Cultivation of the cassava plant, from which tapioca is extracted, has spread throughout Latin America and Africa, while the culinary use of granulated tapioca has become popular throughout the world. It’s a staple in many countries, but is unfortunately devoid of any nutritional value. However, it is often used as a thickening agent. As tapioca is extracted starch from the cassava root, it is almost 100 percent carbohydrate. Hence, the growing health awareness among millennials could very well present a hindrance to the granulated tapioca market growth. Another challenge that the granulated tapioca industry has is that the setting of a production plant may require greater investments because of tapioca’s viscosity and difficulties in handling it automatically.
