Tamarind trees are frequently cultivated in gardens, by the sides of roads, and in commercial plantations. The only nation that commercially produces tamarind is India. West Asia, Europe, and America are the three main markets for India's tamarind exports, which are used to make specialty foods like Worcestershire sauce. This spice is also available as pulp and juice concentrate, mostly used in creating icy drinks, seafood, and various upscale dishes. Tamarinds are tropical American natives that are widely utilized throughout Asia. Because they are employed as acid flavors in the culinary industry, they have earned the popular term asam, which translates to simply "acid."

Tamarind can be available in numerous forms, such as concentrated pulp with seeds, canned paste, dried pods, or powdered form. It is readily available in India and a few Asian markets. They consist of tamarind paste, tamarind concentrate, syrup, tamarind drink concentrate, sauce, chutney, dipping sauce,  gelatin, and candy. It is also used as a base in cooked chutneys. Its fruity nature nicely blends with the sugar, chili, & other flavors. Moreover, tamarind concentrates are frequently utilized as a component and substitute for vinegar, tomatoes, & lemon juice.

Further, tamarind paste is used in cooking in various ways, including as a flavor for curries, chutneys, & refreshment drinks. In Asian countries, tamarind-based chutney is used as a condiment in snacks. For instance, in February 2023, The five-star retreat Pimalai Resort & Spa on the island of Koh Lanta in southern Thailand unveiled a new menu that includes some of the most well-known and genuine delicacies from that region.

These dishes, prepared using local, fresh ingredients, further the resort's dedication to the environment and the community and provide its discerning guests with truly distinctive experiences. The Chigali lollipop, rasam, several types of masala tea, and curries and rice in south Indian cuisine all benefit from adding tamarind pulp. Tamarind is become widely used by restaurants in various recipes and dishes due to its benefits.

The sector has been harmed by COVID-19's mayhem and declining market curve. The outbreak hampered supply and demand, resulting in significant financial losses for manufacturing companies. The expansion of businesses has been constrained by several government prohibitions on exchanging goods and services, which have weakened consumer demand. Examining sales methods in severely affected areas is one of the preventative measures the administration has implemented to stop the virus from spreading further. However, tamarind extract is in high demand because of its high fiber and vitamin C content, which doctors recommend to COVID-19 patients. Greater medical use has caused the market to expand considerably.

Industry Dynamics

Growth Drivers
The governments are focusing on preparing and storing tamarind extract, which drives the tamarind extract market growth. Even though it has a wide range of applications over the globe, attempts have yet to be made to manufacture carbonated beverages utilizing concentrate as a base. As per the F.A.O., an appropriate method for making tamarind extract was established. It was discovered that soaking Aradaib fruits at a ratio of 1:4 for 10 hours was the best extraction technique. An extract with a total soluble solids content (T.S.S.) of 60% was chosen for this. When combined with soda water, a 20% concentration of this extract provided the most palatable carbonated beverage.

In addition, the trained panelists recognized the prepared beverage as a carbonated beverage. The created Aradaib carbonated beverage passed a microbial inspection, which revealed no microbial contamination even during storage. According to the storage study, the prepared carbonated beverage can be kept unchanged for six months at both ambient temperatures (35°C to 5°C) and in the refrigerator (4°C to 6°C).

Further, in November 2018, the research team at I.I.T. Roorkee is working to create tamarind-based treatment agents for chikungunya after filing a patent for an antiviral composition incorporating this tamarind antiviral protein. These factors are bolstering the growth of the market over the forecast period.

Additionally, they assist us in getting clear skin and lightening scars, age spots, and acne marks. Tamarind contains vitamins A and C, known for their ability to lighten and brighten skin. Vitamin A benefits in the reduction of blemishes and imperfections by healing cell renewal. Antioxidant vitamin C aids in increasing collagen production in the skin, which is essential for fading scars and marks. Amino acids found in collagen help to lessen the appearance of spots, blemishes, and scars caused by acne or other skin disorders. Antioxidant vitamin C protects our skin from free radicals caused by UV exposure.

Additionally, this vitamin aids in lowering the amount of melanin produced by our skin, which lightens hyperpigmentation, and brown spots and creates a beautiful complexion.
