Corn Starch Production Cost Analysis 2020

Corn starch, which is known as maize starch, is the starch extracted from corn or maize grain. This starch is obtained from the endosperm of the kernel. Corn starch is a general food ingredient that is often utilised in thickening sauces or soups. It is also widely used in making corn syrup, as well as other sugars.

When mixed with a fluid, corn starch rearranges itself into a non-Newtonian liquid. For example, adding water transforms corn starch into a material widely known as oobleck while adding oil transforms corn starch into an electrorheological or ER fluid. It is versatile and easily modified. 

Although widely used for cooking and as a household item, corn starch is utilised for numerous purposes in many industries, ranging from its use as a chemical additive for certain products to medical therapy for specific illnesses. It can find several uses commercially as adhesives, in paper products, or as an anti-sticking agent, or in textile manufacturing. It has medical uses too, like for supplying glucose for people with glycogen storage disease.

Procurement Resource provides an in-depth cost analysis of Corn Starch production. The report incorporates the manufacturing process with detailed process and material flow, capital investment, operating costs along with financial expenses and depreciation charges. The study is based on the latest prices and other economic data available. We also offer additional analysis of the report with detailed breakdown of all cost components (Capital Investment Details, Production Cost Details, Economics for another Plant Location, Dynamic Cost Model).
