Market Overview

The global native starch market is projected to register a CAGR of 4.27% during the forecast period (2020-2025).

  • Native starches are the pure forms of starch, which can be obtained from sources, such as corn, wheat, potato, rice, cassava, and tapioca. These long-chain carbohydrates are insoluble in cold water and swell to different degrees, depending on the type and temperature. 
  • Furthermore, these starches have been used in the food industry for many years. However, due to their limitations, such as breaking down when reheated or in acidic environments, some food manufacturers have shifted to food starches that are physically, chemically, or enzymatically modified, thus, restricting the market growth.
