Global Native Starch Market to be aided by the Expected Growth in the Global Starch Market at a CAGR of 4.4% in the forecast period of 2021-2026

According to a new report by EMR titled, ‘Global Native Starch Market Report and Forecast 2021-2026’, the global native starch market is being driven by the growing global starch market which attained a volume of nearly 92.91 million metric tons in 2020. The global starch market is further expected to grow at a CAGR of 4.4% between 2021 and 2026 to attain a production volume of 120.30 million metric tons by 2026.

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 2020, 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 2020, 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.
