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.
