  • The value of the market for pea starch concentrate is estimated at US$ 811 Mn in 2020, which is a decrease than the previous year
  • Sluggish growth is expected in the current year (2020) as a result of supply chain concerns, and reduced demand from food industry end users during the ongoing pandemic
