The global dextrin market is growing at a considerable pace, due to several factors such as various end use industries of dextrin such as food and beverages, cosmetic and pharmaceutical industries are growing at highest rate especially in emerging economies including India and China. Furthermore, owing to busy lifestyle, people are shifting their food preference from conventional food to functional food, thus, it encourages food manufacturing companies to use advanced manufacturing technology and organic and improved quality ingredients, which likely to bolster the growth of the dextrin market during the forecast period. Increasing demand for packaged food, fast food, and ready-to-eat meals made with dextrin as their vital ingredient, thereby supplementing the growth of the dextrin market.

The organic dextrin is gaining increasing popularity, as it has higher demand from health-conscious consumers. Dextrin organic powder is produced by mixing organic tapioca starch with water, heating and treating with non-GMO enzymes to partially hydrolyze the starch into sugars ad longer chain saccharides. Introduction of organic dextrin in various developing economies across the globe is expected to boost the market growth. In addition, awareness among customers about the health benefits associated with the product has positively impacted the growth of the global market.

However, side effects due to the consumption of dextrin made food products such as diarrhea, flatulence and gas pain are likely to limit the use of dextrin, thus holding back the growth of the dextrin market during the forecast period.
