Industry Definition and Segmentation

Wheat starch is primarily a by-product in the manufacturing process of gluten. It is a carbohydrate that is found in wheat and is a popularly used in the food products. The existence of residual protein in the starch tends to gibe it a flour-like odour, flavour, and appearance. The rheological properties of wheat starch are alike to those of corn starch, even though thickness and gel intensity are comparatively not as high. In addition, wheat starch is a polysaccharide consisting of a plentiful of glucose molecules. Wheat starch either in its original form or its derivatives, is used in numerous products in the food and manufacturing industries. The common source of starch that is used for baking are wheat, corn, potatoes, and tapioca. The wheat starch industry report comprises segments based on types (native starch and modified), end-use (sweeteners, fuel, paper, and textiles, and food, among others) and region (North America, Europe, the Asia Pacific, Latin America, and the Middle East and Africa, with Europe accounting for the largest share of the market.).

Europe Region is Driving the Growth of the Industry

Europe is the largest producer of wheat starch that is accounting for the greatest part of the total global production. The demand for wheat is rising resulting in the growth of its consumption, this turn is helping the wheat starch market to grow. The growth of the wheat starch market in Europe is due to the increase in the liking for convenience foods such as RTC and RTE food products along with the rise in the working-class segment of people and a high demand for wheat start in making of bakery items.

Europe, China, and India are leading players in the wheat production and hence, play a crucial role in the production of wheat starch. The overall growth in starch manufacturing and utilisation is anticipated to support the expansion of the industry. Moreover, the rise in the global population, notably the increasing middle-class population, is assisting in the growth of the global wheat starch market. Similarly, the swift growth of urbanisation and the expanding demand for processed food are further aiding the industry growth. Owing to its low-calorie and gluten-free content, wheat starch is a healthier alternative and hence, with growing health awareness among people is leading to buyers shifting to healthier food alternatives which is in turn helping the industry to grow further.

Even though wheat starch is generally safe for human body nevertheless, like other treated starches it does not contain any nutritional value and may add too many calories in the diet a hight speed. Moreover, wheat starch’s gluten content may vary from 5 parts per million to 10,000 parts per million.

Best Procurement Practices

The global wheat starch industry report by Procurement Resource gives an in-depth analysis of the best buying practices followed by major wheat starch products utilising regions across the globe, such as engagement models, contract terms, and buyer and supplier negotiation levers, among others.

Category Management Studies

Wheat starch is a simple form of starch that is produced from the processed endosperm of wheat. It is most probably treated by dissolving the water-soluble starch and then dispersing the water, the result is a fine powdery starch. Once the gluten proteins are washed out or removed, it does not give out any elasticity to dough and is mainly used as a thickener. Hence, when it is used in food, wheat starch helps with texture, viscosity, gel formulation, binding, and moisture retention. Additionally, it thickens the food by retrogradation and gelatinization processes. The heat affects the starch to soak up water and swell, while increasing the clarity and viscosity. Once the viscosity reaches the highest level, the cells move to one side and decrease the viscosity. Soon after, when the product starts to cool over the viscosity improves, thus making the liquid murky which results in gel formation.

Rapid Growth of Food Additive Industry is Further Driving the Procurement of Wheat Starch

There are several players in the global food additives market and top producers are Archer Daniels Midland Company, Cargill Inc., Tereos Starch & Sweeteners, and others who aim on expanding label-friendly food additives. Ever growing utilisation of additives in the food products to improve the texture and taste is projected to increase the development of the wheat starch market. Because wheat starch supports in increasing the shelf life of the products like treated meats, soups and sauces, dairy desserts, and several others, they are directly positively affecting the sales of wheat starch.

The food industry players are constantly looking for food additives that suit their need for improving texture, binding, emulsification, and others, hence promoting the global market for wheat starch. To help encourage this further wheat starch manufactures are investing in the research and development bring improvement and necessary modification to produced excellent quality of starch. They are also working towards developing new and innovative product lines by keeping in mind the current market trends and consumer feedback.

The major regions in the industry are North America, Europe, the Asia Pacific, Latin America, and the Middle East and Africa, with Europe accounting for the largest share of the market.
