Key Market Trends

Food and Beverage is the Fastest Growing Segment

The food processing sector in Bangladesh comprises fruits and vegetables, cereals, bakery and confectionary, pulses, oilseeds, dairy, carbonated beverages, fruit juices, and other food items. There is a significant increase in the demand for all forms of ready-to-eat or convenience food and beverage products, owing to the increasingly busy lifestyles and the rising working population in Bangladesh. The food processing industry is expected to have significant growth and generate new opportunities for investment and exports for the country.

The use of modified starch, as a stabilizer, thickening agent, and emulsifier, in manufacturing, bakery, confectionery, noodles, and other convenience food products is fuelling the demand for starch among food and beverage manufacturers in the country. According to the food consumption survey conducted by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) in Bangladesh, in 2018, young children in the country are provided with starchy food prepared with sago, semolina, rice, and noodles.

Textile Industry Holds the Dominant Share

Developing countries, like Bangladesh, are dependent on their textile industries. The textile industry forms the second-largest industry in Bangladesh, after agriculture, as it generates 75% of the employment in the country. The majority of the garment workforce includes female workers. Bangladesh is highly dependent on textiles and clothing for merchandise exports (83.5%). The consumption of starch has also increased for the printing and finishing of manufactured garments.

Tapioca starch is used in the treatment of yarn before weaving, as a result of which, the production of tapioca increased, in recent years, in Bangladesh. The production of cornstarch has increased massively, in the country, due to its multiple functions, such as for thickening and as an adhesive. These properties of starch make it an essential ingredient in the textile industry. Thus, the growth of starch and its derivatives is in parallel to the textile production in the country.
