The modified starch market was estimated to be worth $13.7 billion globally in 2022 and is anticipated to increase to $15.9 billion by 2027, rising at a CAGR of 3.1% between 2022 and 2027. Modified starch is a versatile ingredient that has the ability to transform basic properties of native starch to suit the specific requirements of various industries. With its exceptional characteristics such as bulk water absorption, emulsification, and thickening properties, modified starch has opened up a vast spectrum of applications. Not only does it enhance the quality of food & beverages, but it has also proven to be a game-changer in the textile and paper industry. By serving as a texture agent, fat replacer, and emulsifier, modified starch has become a critical ingredient in the formulation of products across different sectors. Thanks to the advanced processing technology used to develop modified starch, it has become possible to create tailor-made ingredients that can solve a wide range of formulating challenges.

Drivers: Growth in demand for adhesives in a range of industrial applications

Modified starch specifically provides maximum adhesive performance and superior strength at a low cost for a wide range of applications. It can be used in a variety of viscosities to meet the needs of diverse applications and end-use requirements. Modified starch is one of the major raw materials used in the paper industry. Modified starch is used as a starch paste adhesive in laminating paper-to-paper and poly-to-paper. A single sheet of paper contains as high as 8% of modified or unmodified starch. The industry uses modified starch in both dry strength and wet end sizing. It acts as a water retention agent, which also binds the pulp and improves the surface of the paper.

Liquid modified starch is the second fastest growing form in the global modified starch market

Modified starch in the liquid form is estimated to account for a very low market share in the global modified starch market. It is not preferred by many industrial manufacturers because of the challenges associated with it. The liquid form of modified starch is much more difficult to transport. The process requires much more effort in terms of the requirement of specialized equipment. It also demands a proper specialized transportation system in place to transport liquid modified starch. The loading and unloading part of the whole process of transporting them is also very complex and requires much more attention and carefulness. Therefore, liquid modified starches are not preferred in any industry and used only when exclusively required.

Asia Pacific is the largest and fastest growing region in the modified starch market and anticipated to maintain its dominance over the forecast period

The modified starch market in the Asia Pacific region is the largest. The market is estimated to grow at a significant growth rate, owing to the rising demand in large economies, such as China, India, Japan, and other Southeast Asian countries. The industrial organization and technology of starch processing are changing rapidly in the region. Unlike other regions where starch is processed almost entirely by large companies, in Asia Pacific, starch processing is done by small and medium-sized firms. Historically, native starch has been largely used for food products in the region. The industrial applications and technologies involved in starch processing are changing rapidly in the Asia Pacific countries. Modified starch is increasingly being demanded by many industries in the region. Various industries are incorporating modified starches in their manufacturing processes and products.
