Native Starch Market in India to Reach 8.5 Million Tons by 2027, Stimulated by Expanding Applications in Non-Food Industries

Published on Sep 01, 2017

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Native Starch Market in India: Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2022-2027”, the native starch market in India reached a volume of 5.5 Million Tons in 2021. Native starch is a white, tasteless and odorless substance, which is derived from sources, such as rice, corn, maize, wheat, cassava, tapioca, waxy maize and potato. It is a carbohydrate ingredient that has gelling, water binding/retention, feed texturization and thickening, moisture retention, and anti-staling properties. Besides this, it is a bulking agent that is insoluble in cold water and swells to different degrees depending on the temperature used. Owing to these properties, it is widely utilized in the preparation of pet foods, processed meat, salad dressings, dry mix soups and sauces, bakery mixes, batters and breading, and creamy spreads and fillings. Native starch has been traditionally used in India to stiffen textiles for several years. However, its applications are expanding into both food and non-food industries across the country.

We are regularly tracking the direct effect of COVID-19 on the market, along with the indirect influence of associated industries. These observations will be integrated into the report.

Indian Native Starch Market Trends:

Besides the food industry, native starch is also employed in the manufacturing of papers, adhesives, pharmaceuticals and cosmetics. In line with this, the development and expansion of the paper and textile industries have also contributed to the market growth. Furthermore, native starch is employed in the pharmaceutical industry as a diluent, binder, lubricant and disintegrant in several conventional tablets and capsules.
