Key Market Trends

Increasing Investments in the Starch Market to Strengthen the Starch Sweeteners Production

Wheat is the primary feedstock for starch production followed by corn and potato. Specialties like green pea, rice, or chickpea are still minimal and only account for less than 0.5% in the European market. More importantly, the increasing number of starch manufacturers are investing in the starch and sweeteners market in Europe to support the local economy and local community while positioning the business for long term growth. Glucose syrups are used in confectionery mainly for their anti-crystallizing role, while in brewing, they are especially used to impart sweetness to the final product. Glucose syrups can adapt, as with the starch from which they result, into a considerable variety of products, each developing specific properties. Moreover, Germany-based manufacturer, Jäcking Group, also announced its plans to build a new wheat starch facility at the existing plant in Hamm. The new facility is expected to increase the wheat processing capacity and double starch output, thus, creating a potential market for starch-based sweeteners in the near future.

North America holds a Prominent Share

The demand for sugar substitutes in the North American region is expected to be fueled by the increasing concerns regarding the health impact of excess sugar consumption and increased application of low Glycemic Index (GI) sugar substitutes in processed food and beverages. By using different blends of low-calorie sweeteners, subtle taste options can be achieved. Moreover, there has been growing demand for sweeteners, such as High Fructose Corn Syrup x (HFCS) in confectionery and bakery applications, which is creating a huge market for the sweeteners in the country. In the United States, glucose-fructose syrup also referred to as HFCS, generally comes in two varieties, with a 55% fructose content (HFCS 55) and a 42% glucose-fructose syrup (HFCS 42), which in turn boosting the starch sweetener market in the region.
