The global native starch market is being driven by its increased demand in both food and non-food sectors, owing to its favourable properties like water holding capacity and high viscosity, among others. The U.S. is the leading market as well as the major producer of the native starch, globally. The other significant markets for the product are the Asia Pacific and Europe. The starch production in Europe recorded a growth of around 2.3 million tons between 2004 and 2017. Out of the total starch production, native starch accounts for over 35% of the global output. The native starch can be obtained from diverse sources and is available in different forms, thus providing the manufacturers with the greater options.
The expanding application of starch in the textile industry has increased the demand for the product, globally, thus, providing further impetus to the native starch market. In March 2019, Ingredion Incorporated (NYSE: INGR), a leading global ingredients solutions company, expanded its capacity through its acquisition of the US-based native and modified potato starch producer, Western Polymer. The acquisition has expanded the company’s higher-value specialty ingredients business that align with consumer trends and customers' needs. To fulfil the increasing product demand, the companies are expanding their market. In February 2019, Cargill, the US-based food to retail company, announced that it will invest USD 22.7 million in its Sas Van Gent starch production facility in the Netherlands, hence expanding its production capacity.
Moreover, the increasing demand for vegan products in food and beverage sector is providing a further boost to the global native starch market. In July 2018, Ingredion launched three functional potato starches for reducing costs and optimising texture in processed cheese, further providing the optimum taste that the consumers demand. The company, with this launch, has tapped into the growing consumer demand for vegan products, which will enhance its business as well.
