Need a report that reflects how COVID-19 has impacted this market and its growth?
The industrial starches market was valued at USD 55,047.80 million in 2020, and it is projected to reach a CAGR of 5.73% during the forecast period (2021-2026).
The COVID-19 outbreak has impacted demand for industrial starch globally. For instance, according to the All India Starch Manufacturers Association, the industry was down by 40-50% in May 2020, owing to the subdued market demand triggered by the COVID-19 lockdown. The bulk corn starch user segments of textile and paper were down, and unless they operated at near optimum capacity, the corn starch space would continue to be in a lower trajectory. However, although pharmaceuticals account for a minor share of corn starch supplies, manufacturers are looking to offset losses through growth in downstream pharmaceuticals.
Starch is a carbohydrate extracted from agricultural raw materials, which finds applications in literally thousands of everyday food and non-food products. Industrial starches are derived from various sources, including corn, potato, wheat, and other sources. With the global economy gradually improving and resulting in an increased intake of processed and convenience foods, the market for industrial starch, which finds substantial usage in these food applications, is finding increased demand, thereby driving the overall market.
The demand for modified starches is increasing in parallel to the rapid development of the food industry. Modified starches offer a tremendous number of functional benefits to various foods, such as bakeries, snacks, beverages, and nutritional foods.
Moreover, manufacturers are readily inculcating the clean label trend in their products to gain market share. For example, Tate & Lyle expanded the portfolio of CLARIA® Functional Clean-Label Starches with the introduction of two new instant starch products: CLARIA® Instant 340 and 360.

Key Market Trends
Expanding Applications of Starch in the Bioplastic Industry
The demand for renewable biopolymers is growing, where these are considered alternatives to synthetic polymers. Starch is one of the abundant polymers in nature. Native and modified starches are used in a wide variety of food and non-food applications. It has been extensively studied because it is abundant, cheap, biodegradable, and edible. Starch-based plastics are complex blends of starch with compostable polyesters. Major bioplastics players, BASF and Novamont, have both launched highly sustainable solutions for fresh-food packaging in two major compostable cling film breakthroughs. BASF SE offers certified compostable ecovio material, while Novamont provides MATER-BI material, replacing the hard-to-recycle conventional plastics, like polyethylene (PE), while increasing product shelf-life, thus, tackling both plastic pollution and food waste simultaneously.

North America Holds a Major Share in the Industrial Starches Market
The North American market is extensively driven by increasing sales of industrial starches in the United States. Globally, the United States was the largest producer of corn with a production of 366.6 million metric ton in 2018-2019, which is utilized in various application areas, including the production of starch. In January 2020, Tate & Lyle introduced a range of non-GMO ingredients, including starches made from dent corn of the country for its application in jelly confections and processed cheese for the enhancement of their texture. In 2019, an upsurge of 63% in wheat production was witnessed in the United States, compared to the previous year. Additionally, the country also imports wheat for its domestic consumption, thus, catering to the Mexican wheat starch market and further catering to the North American market.
