Key Market Trends

Paper Industry Is A Growing Application Of Starch

The paper industry segment of industrial starch market is forecasted to grow at a CAGR of 4.1% during the forecasted period. The paper is the largest non food application of starches. Starch and its derivatives have huge applications in the production and processing of paper bags, tissues and packaging paper, corrugating board, and stationery. The use of starch in the manufacturing of paper helps to reduce cost, as it aids the increased use of filler and recycled fibers. Starch has been extensively utilized as a filler, to bond the cellulose fibers together, while improving the strength of the final product. Further, the starch’s high binding power helps to decrease the energy consumed by paper mills, thus lowering the input cost.

Europe Holds A Major Share In The Global Industrial Starch Market

The Europe industrial starch market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 3.4% during the forecasted period. The Europe industrial starch market is led by food, feed and other industrial applications. The organic meat producers from Europe are expected to project high demand for wheat-based starches, in order to meet the clean label demands. The demand for organic pre-gelatinized starch for customized applications is increasing rapidly. The increasing regulatory pressure for sourcing the raw materials demestically has led the key manufacturers to expand their production of industrial starches. For instance, Cargill announced its plan to grow and diversify its product portfolio at its starch and sweetener plant in Krefeld (Germany), with products, such as vegetable wheat protein, specialized industrial wheat starches, and advanced bio-fuel.

Competitive Landscape

The global industrial starch market is a highly consolidated market with the top 4-5 players acquiring more than 60% of the market.
