Modified Starch Market Overview:
Global Modified Starch Market was valued at $7,995 million in 2016, and is projected to reach at $10,700 million by 2023, growing at a CAGR of 4.2% from 2017 to 2023. Modified starch is formed by morphological or physicochemical changes in the structure of native starch via its treatment with heat, acids, alkalis, or enzymes. These have improved water-holding capacity, heat resistance, binding characteristics, and thickening property. Maize, potato, wheat, and cassava are some of the main raw materials of modified starches. Modified starches are widely used in the food & beverage industry as thickening agents, stabilizing agents, or emulsifying agents due to their partially digestible nature and quality of being gluten free, thus providing lesser fat than regular starches. The paper-making industry is another main application of modified starches, owing to their binding property for manufacturing high strength and enhanced quality paper with appropriate surface sizing, coating, and calendaring. Moreover, pharmaceutical, animal feed, textile, cosmetics, and other industries also make use of modified starch.
The global modified starch market is driven by increase in consumption of convenience food and ease of modification in its functional properties. Furthermore, rise in usage of modified starch in pharmaceutical, cosmetics, and paper industries fuels the growth further. However, availability of substitutes and volatility in raw material prices are expected to hinder the market growth. The newer & potential sources of modified starch and its untapped applications represent major opportunities for market expansion.
The global modified starch market is segmented on the basis of raw material, type, application, function, and geography. Based on raw material, it is divided into maize, cassava, potato, wheat, and others.
