Modified Starch Market Growth & Trends

The global modified starch market size is predicted to reach USD 18.9 billion by 2030, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. The market is expected to expand at a CAGR of 5.3% from 2022 to 2030. The market is anticipated to expand significantly during the forecast period due to its use in a variety of applications such as paper, food and beverage, pharmaceuticals, textiles, and other applications like biodegradable polymers, coatings, and adhesives. Growing concern about health and nutrition, as well as a shift toward a healthier diet, are likely to be major factors driving the market.

The product penetration will rise over the forecast period as the demand for organic sweeteners in non-carbonated soft drinks and energy drinks rises. In order to produce efficient water-soluble modified starches, companies are investing more in research and development, which has created dynamic market conditions. Product innovation has significantly increased recently in order to access markets and reap strategic advantages. As a result, businesses have integrated and diversified their product portfolios to increase their presence throughout the value chain.

Modified starch has a high viscosity and improves the flavor, aroma, and color of the food it is used in because it contains very low protein and fat/lipid content. It also has organoleptic qualities and can be used in a variety of meals. Additionally, native-modified starch is suitable to be used in pet feeds and animal nutrition. During the palletization and extrusion processes, it facilitates the improvement of the finished product's texture while also giving animals a digestible energy source.

The market is expanding as a result of the rising demand for modified starch in personal care and cosmetic products to cater to distinct consumer preferences. In addition to being a potent substitute for silicone as well as other raw materials, modified starches also reduce greasiness. They are a great addition to baby and children's products along with cosmetics for tanning. Additionally, starches provide a chance to increase the stability of the emulsion. These factors are predicted to fuel product demand in the coming years.

Ingredient suppliers have been expanding their starch sources, and starch innovations are now focused on baked food elements such as fruit filling in desserts and sauces in frozen food meals. According to Starch Europe, European starch production has increased to over 11 million tons in 2020 as compared to 8.7 million tons in 2004. This includes starch made from maize, potato, and wheat. More importantly, an increasing number of starch manufacturers are investing in the European starch and sweetener market to contribute to the local economy and community, whilst also positioning the business for long-term progress, which will drive market growth.
