Report Overview

The global corn fiber market size was valued at USD 718.9 million in 2019 and is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 6.3% from 2020 to 2027. Increasing utilization of corn fibers in pharmaceutical products to enhance their nutritional contents is expected to drive the market growth over the forecast period. Moreover, increasing consumption of corn fibers in food & beverage products will support the growth. High nutritional contents of these fibers have augmented their demand in dairy products, prepared foods, and baked goods, and others. Wide usage in textile applications owing to high durability, comfort, and eco-friendly nature and in animal nutrition products owing to high protein contents of these fibers are expected to fuel the market growth.

U.S. corn fiber market size

In the U.S., the market has witnessed significant growth over the past few years and is estimated to expand further at a CAGR of 5.9% during the forecast period. Well-established textile industry in the country coupled with continuous innovations in the pharmaceutical sector is anticipated to boost the product demand over the coming years.

Consumer inclination toward a healthy lifestyle coupled with increasing disposable income levels, especially in emerging regions, is anticipated to boost the product demand. Moreover, the rising popularity of health drinks and meal replacement drinks is likely to support the product demand.

However, fluctuations in global corn production are expected to hamper the market growth to some extent. Moreover, the current coronavirus outbreak across the globe has hampered the supply chain, which has negatively affected the corn fiber market. On the other hand, prominent companies are focusing on the capacity and geographical expansions, which will boost the market growth.

Application Insights

Pharmaceutical application accounted for the largest revenue share of more than 30% and is projected to expand further at the fastest CAGR of 7.5% over the forecast period. Increasing the production of pharmaceutical products and medicines with nutritional benefits is anticipated to accelerate the product demand in this application segment. 

Textiles are projected to be the second-largest application segment as corn fibers offer benefits, such as high durability and comfort. Moreover, corn fiber filaments have a fluid drape and subtle luster and provide an eco-friendly alternative to nylon and polyester. The food & beverage application segment accounted for a significant market share in 2019 and is projected to ascend at a steady CAGR over the forecast period.

Growing demand for high-nutritional products and increasing consumption of health and meal replacement drinks are projected to boost the demand for corn fibers in this segment. Corn fiber products are rich in proteins and carbohydrates, and thus are favorable for animal nutrition products. These are widely used to the supplement diets of poultry, swine, and ruminants.
