Global Native Starch Market to Reach 111.2 Million Tons by 2032, Driven by the Increasing Product Demand in the Food Industry

May 15, 2023 | Food & Beverages

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Native Starch Market Report by End Use (Sweeteners, Ethanol, Food Industry, Paper Industry, and Others), Feedstock (Corn, Wheat, Cassava), and Region 2024-2032,” the global native starch market size reached 96.2 Million Tons in 2023. Native starch refers to starch that is extracted directly from its natural sources, such as corn, wheat, tapioca, or potato. It is widely used as a thickening agent, stabilizer, binder, and gelling agent in food and non-food industries. Native starch provides texture, viscosity, and stability to products in sectors like food, paper manufacturing, textiles, adhesives, pharmaceuticals, and cosmetics. It offers advantages, such as good water-binding capacity and film-forming properties. Although modified starches are sometimes used as alternatives, native starch remains a crucial ingredient in various applications, contributing to the functionality and quality of end products. Consequently, it finds extensive applications across industries, such as food and beverage (F&B) and packaging.

Global Native Starch Market Trends:

The rising food and beverage (F&B) industry represents a significant factor driving the market growth across the globe. This, coupled with the modernization in food consumption habits is acting as a major growth-inducing factor. The market is also driven by the development of advanced product innovations and diversification in various applications. In line with this, the increasing demand for confectionaries and ready-to-eat (RTE) items among consumers, along with the rising demand for native starch from the pharmaceutical and paper industries are contributing to the growth of the market. In addition to this, the rising demand for eco-friendly packaging materials, such as biodegradable and compostable starch-based films and coatings is fueling the market growth. Coupled with this, rising environmental consciousness and an enhanced focus on sustainable development are acting as major growth-inducing factors. Moreover, continual technological advancements in the extraction and processing of starch from different sources, such as corn, potato, wheat, and cassava, is leading to improved yield and quality of native starch. This is contributing to the market growth significantly. The rising awareness of health and environmental benefits of plant-based diets, along with the increasing trend of veganism and vegetarianism among individuals is leading to increasing preference for plant-based ingredients in food products, thereby facilitating the market growth. Other factors, including the increase in the middle-class population, rapid urbanization, rising cases of obesity, and the increasing research and development (R&D) activities for product innovation, are creating a positive outlook for the market. Looking forward, the market volume is projected to reach 111.2 Million Tons by 2032, expanding at a CAGR of 1.6% during 2024-2032.
