Impact of COVID–19 on GCC Soluble Dietary Fibers Market
COVID-19 had a detrimental effect on GCC economies, resulting in a decrease in oil output, tourism, and remittances. The quarantine measures enforced in the region for sanitary reasons brought multiple activities in various economic sectors to a halt. Countries in the GCC region are potential markets for soluble dietary fiber vendors.

Impact of Russia-Ukraine conflict on GCC Soluble Dietary Fibers Market
GCC soluble dietary fibers market is adversely affected by the ongoing war between Russia and Ukraine, the world’s two largest producers and suppliers of wheat grains. Further intensity of the war is feared to trigger the global food crisis. According to UN FAO reports, Russia and Ukraine together held a significant share of 34% in global exports of wheat in 2021. Especially, in the global exports of sunflower cake, both the countries had a whopping 81% share. In addition, Ukraine and Russia held a combined significant market share in the global exports in maize, barley, sunflower oil, and vegetable oils. The report also estimated that Russia and Ukraine supplied about 12% of food calories traded across the globe in 2021. Since the Russian invasion of Ukraine on February 24, 2022, there have been uncertainties over the supply of grains both from Ukraine and Russia to the world, and to Arab states of the Middle East and North Africa. It has resulted in a significant rise in global food prices. Apart from experiencing food shortages due to expensive import costs, fiscal deficits, conflict, Middle East and North Africa confront an additional issue. Any interruption or decrease in wheat supply from Ukraine and Russia will deny inhabitants in some of the world’s most food-insecure countries the ability to produce fiber-enriched food and other daily necessities. Therefore, the continuous conflict between Ukraine and Russia is anticipated to affect the growth of GCC Soluble Dietary Fibers Market.
