Modified Starch Market Overview and Introduction
Modified starches which are extracted from grains & vegetables, and are classified as food additives. The vegetables are treated in a specific way to retain the texture and structure of food. Starches are modified to increase their stability against excessive heat, acid, shear, time, cooling, or freezing. This increased stability is generally needed in food products that need to be microwaved, freeze-dried, cooked at high temperatures or baked and fried so that the texture of such food does not change during the cooking process among others.
The global modified starch market is primarily driven by rising consumption of processed food and increasing investments in R&D activities to develop innovative products. Moreover, the application of starch in food & beverage industry as a thickening agent, stabilizer or emulsifying agent due to its gluten free properties is one of the major factor contributing to the extensive growth of the global modified starch market. Furthermore, application of modified starch across a wide range of industries, such as animal feed, textile, cosmetic, and pharmaceutical can also be attributed to the significant adoption of these products. However, high cost of raw materials is likely to restrain the market to a certain extent.
The global modified starch market is segmented by raw material, modification type, function, application, and region.
Modified Starch Market by Raw Material
On the basis of raw material, the market is segmented into corns, cassava, potato and wheat, and other products. The corn segment is estimated to account for the largest share in the global modified starch market. The large share of this segment can be attributed to the fact that corn is one of the most widely available raw material. Moreover, the wide range of application of modified corn starch across a variety of food products has significantly propelled the growth of this segment.
Modified Starch Market by Modification Type
Based on modification type, the modified starch market can be segmented into physical modification, chemical modification and resistant starch. Physical modification is further segmented into pre-gelatinized, hydrothermal and non-hydrothermal. Similarly, chemical modification is segmented into cationic starch, etherified starch, and esterified starch.
Modified Starch Market by Function
Based on function of modified starch, the market can be segmented into thickeners, stabilizers, binders and emulsifiers, and other functions. The thickeners segment accounted for the largest market share in 2018. The large share of this segment can be attributed to the use of thickeners in variety of food products such as soups, sauces, jams and puddings among others.
Modified Starch Market by Application
Based on application, the modified starch market is segmented into food & beverages, animal feed and industrial. Food & beverages segment is further bifurcated into bakery & confectionery products, beverages processed foods, and other food & beverage applications. Similarly, animal feed is segmented into swine feed, ruminant feed, poultry feed, other animal feed applications. The industrial segment is further classified into, medicines & pharmaceuticals, papermaking, cosmetics, weaving & textiles and other industrial applications. The food & beverages segment is estimated to account for the largest share of the global modified starch market. The large share of this segment can be attributed to wide range of application of modified starch in bakery, dairy, energy & non-carbonated soft drinks and convenience foods.
Modified Starch Market by Region
The global modified starch market can be segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and Rest of World (ROW). North America dominated the market of modified starch. Rising awareness regarding benefits associated with consuming low-fat food is one of the major factor driving the growth of the modified starch market in this region. Whereas, Asia-Pacific is anticipated to account for the highest CAGR during the forecast period owing to factors such as rising demand for convenience & processed foods and growing applications of modified starch products across industries such as textile, paper, pharmaceutical, and others. Similarly, changing lifestyles habits have led to alterations in consumption patterns which in turn has led to growing adoption for packaged food products.
Modified Starch Market Prominent Players
Some of the prominent players in the global modified starch market include Cargill, Incorporated., ADM, Ingredion, Tate & Lyle, Roquette Frères., Avebe, SMA Corporation, SAMYANG HOLDINGS CORPORATION, BENEO and Sonish Starch among others.
