Modified starch market by raw material illuminated by new report

Industrial Market Research

A brief overview of the Modified Starch Market is provided in the report based on product scope and market status & outlook. The market is segmented on the basis of type, end-users/application, and geography.

“Modified Starch Market by Raw Material (Maize, Cassava, Potato, Wheat, and Others), Type (Cationic Starch, Etherified Starch, Esterified Starch, Resistant Starch, and Pre-gelatinized), Application (Food & Beverages, Animal Feed, Paper-making, Weaving & Textiles, Pharmaceuticals, and Others), and Function (Thickeners, Stabilizers, Binders, Emulsifiers, and Others) - Global Opportunity Analysis and Industry Forecast, 2017-2023”

Modified starch is obtained from native starch via its physical, enzymatic, or chemical alteration. Some of the common techniques used for converting native starch to modified starch include treatment with acid, sodium hydroxide, potassium hydroxide, emulsifiers, and starch ether, as well as roasting or adding a positive electrical charge.

Some of the native starch undergo more than one treatment to get the desired quality based on different applications. Modified starches are used in the food & beverage industry to enhance the texture & control moisture of different food products such as ice-creams, jellies, syrups, candies, and others.

These are also useful as a stabilizing agent, thickening agent, and dough binding agent apart from other functions. The main application areas of modified starch are in the food industry, paper-making, and pharmaceutical industry apart from cosmetics industry, pet food industry, textile industry, and others.

Some common examples of modified starch are thin boiling starch, white dextrine starch, yellow dextrine starch, oxidized starch, cationic starch, and starch ester.


Increase in the consumption of convenience food and the easy modification of functional properties of modified starch drive the global modified starch market. Furthermore, increase in usage of modified starch in various industries such as pharmaceutical, cosmetics, and paper boosts the market growth.

However, presence of substitutes and volatility in raw material prices are anticipated to hamper this growth. Moreover, new sources of modified starch and its untapped applications represent potential opportunities for growth.

The global modified starch market is segmented on the basis of raw material, type, application, function, and geography. Based on raw material, it is divided into maize, cassava, potato, wheat, and others.

The type segment includes cationic starch, etherified starch, esterified starch, resistant starch, and pre-gelatinized starch. Applications covered in this report are food & beverages, animal feed, paper-making, weaving & textiles, pharmaceuticals, and others.
