Product Overview

In order to modify its properties, starch derivatives are made by enzymatically, mechanically, or chemically processing native starch. In different industries, starch derivatives are used. It is used in the food and beverage industry as a thickener and stabilizer, in the pharmaceutical industry as a tablet binder, in cosmetics as an emulsifier, and in animal feed as a fiber additive. Flocculation, film-forming, adhesiveness, pH stability improvement and shear stability, acid stability, and process tolerance enhancement are also other functions of starch derivatives. Starch derivatives are used in the pharmaceutical field as a tablet binder, as a food and beverage stabilizer and thickener, as a fiber filler in animal feed, and as an emulsifier in the cosmetic industry. In addition to these, adhesiveness, flocculation, film-forming, shear stability, pH stability improvement, process tolerance improvement, and acid stability are some more important applications of starch derivatives.

Market Highlights

Starch Derivatives Market is expected to project a notable CAGR of 8.7% in 2030.

Starch Derivatives Market to surpass USD 65.5 billion by 2030 from USD 49.74 billion in 2019 at a CAGR of 8.7% throughout the forecast period, i.e., 2020-30. The market is mainly driven by a wide spectrum of applications of starch and its derivatives across different end-user sectors. The growth of the industry is likely to be driven by strict regulations promoting the use of natural ingredients across various industries, including pharmaceuticals, textiles, fermentation, and cosmetics. The underlying demand for starch-based adhesives is paper and packaging and is expected to experience healthy growth in the near future. The demand for bio-based and biodegradable adhesives is expected to fuel ever-increasing regulatory requirements for low-emission adhesives, which, in turn, is expected to drive the market for starch and its derivatives. Due to factors such as rising R&D spending, along with fluctuations in raw material prices, the demand for starch derivatives has seen significant growth. Besides, rising public health and wellness issues, along with a shifting desire for a healthy appetite, are key to improve the market.

Starch Derivatives Market: Segments

Starch Derivatives Market: Market Dynamics


Increasing Investments by Organizations

Population growth, increasing demand for convenience foods and beverages in developing countries, and an increase in per capita incomes are among the key factors driving the growth of the global market for starch derivatives. Besides, starch holds an important position in the sectors of glue processing, textile finishing and weaving, bio-fuel, and fermentation. A striking inflow of capital is expected to be witnessed by the industry, as starch producers are extending their commitment to improving the quality of their goods to have an advantage over their rivals. It is also anticipated that the use of these derivatives in the personal care segment as a drug coating and animal feed would provide potential scope for market growth in the coming years.

Emerging economies

Emerging economies such as China and India are seeing a rise in the consumption of modified starch due to rapid industrialization and an increase in middle-class purchasing capacity per capita. A rise in use in areas with unexplored market applications such as functional foods, nutrition, and healthcare is expected to be seen. Its derivatives are poised to play an important role in improving the abundant supply and renewable existence of sustainable plastics. The supply and cost may further improve if lignocelluloses replace cornstarch as the preferred feedstock in the production of ethanol in the U.S. in the coming years.


Variation in raw material costs

High R&D costs involved in the extraction and development of starch derivatives are one of the major factors limiting the growth of the demand for starch derivatives. They are used in different industries, such as food & beverage, pharmaceutical, paper, and many more, but they have small natural sources of starch extraction. Starch derivatives have improved functional properties and give various advantages. This has forced a large variety of starch derivatives for food and non-food applications to be developed and marketed by producers and marketers.
