The global Starch industry report gives a comprehensive analysis of the industry, including key segments, trends, drivers, restraints, the competitive landscape, and other essential market aspects. The market is primarily driven by the extensive application of the product in the food industry. The key demand indicator is the highest category spender in the industry report by region—North America.

Industry Definition and Segmentation

Starch is a polymeric carbohydrate made of several glucose units linked together by glycosidic linkages. All green plants generate starch, a white, granular organic molecule. Starch is a bland, delicate white powder that is unfathomable in cold water, alcohol, and other diluents. It is the most predominant carbohydrate in human diets worldwide, and it is abundant in staple foods, including wheat, potatoes, maize (corn), rice, and cassava (manioc).  The Starch industry report comprises segments by application (food and beverage, paper, pharmaceuticals, and textiles) and region (Europe, North America, South America, Asia Pacific, and the Middle East).

The North American Region is Driving the Growth of the Industry

North America comprises the largest share in the industry owing to its developed food industry that uses all ingredients. The leading country in the market in the United States is inclined toward the consumption of gluten-free foods, which is bolstered by the country's government's tight requirements on gluten-free ingredient labelling. As a result, most modified dietary starches originating from corn, waxy maise, and potatoes in the United States are gluten-free. In addition, the Canadian industrial starches industry is rapidly expanding in Canada due to increased customer demand for healthier and cleaner ingredients.

The demand for starch is primarily driving the market as it comprises all-natural/raw materials appealing to the consumers. Furthermore, with the global economy progressively improving, increasing the consumption of processed and convenience foods, the market for industrial starch, which is used extensively in various culinary applications, is seeing higher demand, propelling the entire industry. It also has textural features, particularly as a thickening ingredient in sectors like dairy and drinks. The component also gives it an advantage in the production of gluten-free goods, which is difficult for wheat starch due to the possibility of residues remaining during extraction. Also, the food processing industry's fast development provides a considerable opportunity for ingredient makers to take strategic measures to meet rising demand. Food products like cereals, bread, etc., employ starch as a critical ingredient, thus, resulting in increased demand.

Best Procurement Practices

The global Starch industry report by Procurement Resource gives an in-depth analysis of the best buying practices followed by major global Starch regions, such as engagement models, contract terms, and buyer and supplier negotiation levers.

Category Management Studies

Wet grinding, washing, sieving, and drying are used in the starch business to extract and purify starches from seeds, roots, and tubers. Cornstarch, tapioca, arrowroot, wheat, rice, and potato starches are the most commonly used refined starches today. Sweet potato, sago, and mung bean are sources of refined starch to a lesser extent. Starch is still derived from more than 50 different types of plants today. Heat is required to thicken or gelatinise untreated starch. When a starch is pre-cooked, it may be used to thicken liquids in cold water very instantaneously.

Various Applications of the Product in a Wide Range of Industries, Further Propelling the Procurement of Starch

Corn starch is used as a filler and sizing substance in non-food applications by the paper industry. It's also used in textile, laundry, foundry, air flotation, and adhesives. Various biotechnological derivatives such as organic acids, antibiotics, vitamins, and hormones are mass-produced using starch derivatives as an efficient fermentation foundation. The product's use in starch-based adhesives in industrial products packaging is furthering the industry's growth. Clean-label ingredients and products have a significant influence on the worldwide food and beverage sector. As a result, the wide range of applications of the product is augmenting the industry's expansion.

The regional markets for the industry can be divided into North America, South America, Europe, the Middle East and Africa, and the Asia Pacific.

Market Landscape

Many local and foreign businesses compete for market share in the industrial starch industry, which is highly fragmented. Companies use new product releases and advancements as a primary tactic to grow their business. The practice of forging new agreements and partnerships with local players assisted the corporations in expanding their footprint in other nations and releasing new goods in response to changing customer demands while also using the experience of these tiny regional businesses. Companies are entering this sector to establish themselves as health and wellness ingredient makers. Price, product customisation, and customer service are the three most critical competitive considerations in the native and modified starches industry.

Key Initiatives by Companies

  • As part of its new plan announced in June 2021, Tereos Group announced the transfer of its investment in the starch business in China to the YKA Group in September 2021. The corporation stated its intention to focus on its three significant activities while reducing its debt.
  • Cargill Inc. stated in April 2021 that it would increase its specialised tapioca starch capabilities in the Asia Pacific area. Cargill teamed up with Starpro, a Thai manufacturer of food-grade tapioca starch. It intends to expand in the Asia-Pacific area to meet the product processing needs of food producers and customer expectations.
