The US is a largest producer in the global corn starch market. The European Union is a significant global producer of corn, accounting for 6% of its total output and nearly 13% of its output in the EU is utilised in the production of starches along with glucose and other sweeteners. In 2017, the total starch production in the EU witnessed an increase of 1% as compared to the previous year, reaching over 9.4 million metric tons. Cooperatives and farmers in the region produced almost 24 million tonnes of agricultural raw materials for starch production. China is one of the major corn starch consuming nations, globally, having a significant share in the end-use sectors of processed corn starch like polyols and High Fructose Corn Syrup (HFCS).

The prices of corn starch are highly dependent upon its feedstock. Corn or maize accounts for nearly three-fourths of the total starch production, globally. The global corn output was nearly 1044.6 million tons in 2017. The US is a major corn producer, accounting for more than 35% of the global output. The country witnessed a record yield in 2017 due to favourable weather conditions conducive for the crop growth. It is also a leading exporter of corn. Globally, the corn consumption has witnessed a healthy growth over the past few years driven by the rising demand from major end-use sectors like ethanol, animal feed, and other industrial application. The production of sorbitol is another significant end-use sector of corn. The growth in demand is being driven by the major corn consuming nations like China and the US.

Properties and Applications

Corn starch, also known as maize starch, is a starch obtained from the grains of corn. It is derived from the corn kernel endosperm. It is also available in native and modified types. It is commonly used in the food sector as a thickening agent for soups and sauces, and also finds extensive use in the production of corn syrup and sweeteners. It finds its applications in sectors like:

  • Food and Beverages
  • Animal Feed
  • Pharmaceuticals and Chemicals
  • Textile
  • Paper and Corrugated
  • Others

The report also looks into the regional markets like North America, Asia Pacific, Europe, Middle East and Africa, and LATAM.

Market Analysis

The global corn starch market is being driven by the high growth of corn production, globally. The industry is being aided by its growing application in the food industry. It is widely used as a thickener in food items like gravies, soups, and sauces. It also finds applications as a coating in deep-fried food to give them a crispy texture, and in baked goods to provide them with moisture and fullness. Being gluten-free, it is unaffected by the shift towards gluten-free products. The steady growth of the bakery industry is also aiding the growth of corn starch in the food sector. In 2018, the global bakery industry attained a value of USD 482 billion. The US, which is a leading corn starch market, is also a significant bakery market thus aiding the industry. Sweeteners are another major end-use sector for corn starch, which is expected to see a healthy growth in the coming years.

The global corn starch market is also being driven by its rising application in the non-food sectors like the textile and paper industries. The increase in the consumption of paper in countries like China, US, and Japan, is further propelling the industry forward. It is also widely used in the manufacture of latex materials like gloves and diaphragms. The rising demand for the product in the biofuels sectors is projected to drive the market growth in the coming few years. Growing population and rapid urbanisation are also providing impetus to the global corn starch market growth.
