Modified starches are treated materials or additives obtained from different botanical sources such as maize, wheat, cassava, potato, and others. These can be transformed into various functional forms based on the required application; thus, they are preferred over native starch as the latter has limited functionalities. The most common chemical technique employed in the manufacturing of modified starch includes treating the crude starch with acids, sodium hydroxide, or potassium hydroxide. The physical treatment of starch to make it modified usually involves heat-moisture treatment, annealing, and pre-gelatinization. Modified starch is mainly applicable in the food & beverage and paper-making industries.
The factors that drive the global modified starch market include growth in consumption in convenience food; facilitated modification of its functional properties; increase in usage in pharmaceutical, cosmetics, and paper industries. However, presence of possible alternatives of modified starch in the market and volatility in raw material prices may hamper the market growth. The new & potential sources of modified starch and its untapped applications present numerous opportunities for market de.
Based on raw material, the market is divided into maize, cassava, potato, wheat, and others. Maize is considered as the main raw material for manufacturing modified starch, occupying nearly half of the market share in terms of volume. Wheat, cassava, and potato are some other widely used raw materials for modified starch.
Based on application, the market is classified into food & beverages, animal feed, paper-making, weaving & textiles, pharmaceuticals, and others. The food & beverages application is the largest application segment, covering more than half of the market share. Moreover, paper-making and pharmaceuticals are the other main applications of the market, growing at significant growth rates.
