In the Indian market, the State inventories were vacating at a fast pace, still, the impending polls in the country led the regime to regulate the prices in order to avoid unrest and market concerns. Similarly, the Chinese market also exhibited a close parity with international wheat starch markets also exuding close cohesion. The Chinese market, though, was relatively more stable. Overall, a lukewarm performance was witnessed.


In the European wheat starch market, the prices were found to be tottering closely during the first quarter of 2024. The regional stockpiles were still stable and quite capable of fulfilling the incoming demands. The black Sea agreement allowed Russian and Ukrainian exports to be freely in the international market in 2023.

The supplies were still sufficient; however, the current stock-to-use ratio is on a decline, which is posing some concerns for the wheat starch market security going forward. However, the outlook still appears largely stable since the demands are also not growing at that pace. Overall, a compact price pattern was witnessed.

North America

The American market trends for wheat starch were not much different from its Asian and European counterparts. Prices were oscillating the entire duration; however, the magnitude of these oscillations was very confined. Given the close parity between the supply and demand outlooks, the price trend observed a circumscribed structure.

Market offtakes were quite casual in the discussed market. Albeit international trade was full of challenges. The freight issues in the Red Sea and the logistical difficulties in the war-torn regions of Europe and the Middle East also complicated the global trade dynamics.

Wheat Starch Price Trend for the October - December of 2023


Wheat starch, as the name suggests, is the starch that is extracted from wheat primarily through the wet milling process. Since the wheat starch is directly sourced from wheat, their prices also align very closely with each other. During the last quarter of the year 2023, the wheat starch prices were observed to be dwindling to the lower side for the entire period.

The Indian market was witnessing some problems because of increased consumption; however, the government’s intervention controlled the wheat prices and thus also impacted the wheat starch prices. The Chinese wheat starch market was already on a drooping trajectory and continued to register falling numbers on the wheat starch price index.


The European market trend were no different from the Asian market as the prices here, too, vacillated at the lower level of the curve during the said period. The overflowing supplies, along with a slump in demand, led to a swift decline in wheat starch prices over the three-month period of Q4’23.

North America

The American market trend for wheat starch were also in alliance with the global trend as the prices depreciated here as well. Oversupplied inventories played an important role in influencing these market patterns. Hence, the wheat starch price graph continued to decline throughout the said period of Q4’23.

Wheat Starch Price Trend for the July-September of 2023


The wheat starch price trend in Asian countries fluctuated heavily throughout the third quarter of 2023. The stabilization of manufacturing and trading activities brought some relief for the producers of wheat starch.

The paper, pharmaceutical, and other related sectors also grew gradually, aiding the rise in the wheat starch price trend. However, this momentum was not carried forward in the mid-phase of the quarter as soon in view of weak rates of procurement, the wheat starch price graph began to slide. Additionally, given the economic concerns, the traders sold wheat starch at lower rates.


The majority of the third quarter struggled with the slump in economic activities and negative demand from the food and beverages sectors. Additionally, during the initial months, the excessive supply disrupted the demand-supply equilibria giving the downward movement of wheat starch prices a boost.

The wheat starch market dynamics, however, improved with time as the European currency became stronger as compared to the US dollar and gave the wheat starch price trend the required cost support. The dynamics of demand also improved as the quarter progressed, successively supporting the inclining trajectory of wheat starch price trend.

North America

In North America, the surge in the wheat starch price trend in the first month was due to the hike in procurement rates of the food sector and depletion in inventories invoked by the contraction in imports and supply chains. However, similar to the European countries, the thrust of inflation and rising rates of interest proved to be destructive for the wheat starch demand in the domestic and overseas industries. But soon the wheat starch market rebounded as it achieved supply-demand equilibria with the help of local merchants, keeping the wheat starch price graph afloat.

Analyst Insight

According to Procurement Resource, the price trend of Wheat are expected to move in the forward direction. The resolute demand and improving economic conditions are expected to favor the upscale growth of the wheat starch price graph.

Wheat starch is simply a starch that is prepared from the processed endosperm of the wheat grain. Because the gluten proteins have been eliminated, wheat starch does not lend any elasticity to the dough– it is mainly utilised as a thickener. Wheat Starch is a polysaccharide (or carbohydrate) that is composed of long chains of fructose units that are connected to tree-like molecules.
