End user industry wise the food and beverages sector is the largest market for Starch Derivative with a market share of more than 50% and a revenue of $32 billion generated from it in 2017, followed by the pharmaceutical sector with a revenue generated amounting to $9 billion in  2017. In 2017 the Exports of various starch derivatives amounted to a little more $3 billion, with Thailand being the lead exporter, with an export value of $623 million.

Starch derivatives Market Outlook:
Starch is naturally occurring biopolymer that is found in almost all plants that are grown as an energy source for them. Some of the major sources of starch for industrial production are Maize (Corn), wheat, potatoes and tapioca among many others. Raw starch has limitations in its applications due to its easily decaying and retrograding properties and hence required to be modified either physically, chemically or enzymatically to give it much better properties. Due their safety, bio-degradability, low cost and specific technical properties such as thickening, gelling, film forming, fat mimicking and many more, making starch derivatives a lucrative option for the various industries.
Corn holds the largest market share as raw material for starch due to the high content of starch that is found in it, close to 60% followed by wheat having almost 50% starch content. There are many derivative of Starch that are categorized as Esters, Ethers, cross-linked starches, graft copolymerized starches, converted or modified starches which include – Dextrin, Maltodextrins, pre-gelatinized starches and many more. 
They find application in the food and beverage industry as additives for binding, thickening, stabilizing, as a powdering agent and lustering agent and also in cake mix. In the Chemical, agricultural, medical and healthcare industry it used as bulking agents, caking agents, as a culture medium, in shampoos and as dehumidification agents. In the Paper and pulp industry as a wet end additive, surface sizer and coatings binder, layer binder, corrugated paper and remoistenable gummed tape. In printing, warp sizing, spray sizing and finishing and in glass fibers in the textile industry. They are also used in Ceramic fibers, acid picking thickeners, cement retardants, dry cell and various more applications.

Starch derivatives Market Growth drivers:
The growing demand for food, due to increasing global population and increase in disposable income levels, and the use of Starch derivatives in the use of Starch derivatives in the food and beverage industries is the most important growth driver for the starch derivatives market. Food and Beverages accounts for 54% of the starch derivatives market, starch derivatives form gelling agents, emulsifiers, thickeners and film forming additives in the food industry. Growing global population and the increase in disposable income held by people is a primary driver that is fueling the food Industry and thus indirectly fuelling the starch derivatives market. Its low production cost, ease of processing, biodegradability, excellent physiochemical properties and high calorific value make it a popular product in the pharmaceutical, paper, textiles and various other sectors.

Starch derivatives Market Challenges:
One of the major challenges faced byor the starch derivatives market is the competition for raw materials availability between various industries. Corn is the major source for the production of starch globally, and is also used in various industries for different applications due to which the availability of corn and its price for the production of starch acts as a major constraint on the market. .
Effects of the climate and other geological and political factors as well have an important impact on the production of thethe raw materials w, such as corn, wheat, tapioca and others, which makes it a volatile factor.

Starch derivatives Market Key Players Perspective:
On 6 July, the EU and Japan signed a political agreement on an Economic Partnership after 4 years of negotiations. Starch Europe welcomes the agreement and looks forward to improved access to the Japanese market for EU starch products.
Reacting to the news of the agreement reached, Jamie Fortescue, Starch Europe Managing Director, said:
‘With customs duties as high as 900 Euros per tonne for some starch products, access to the Japanese market for EU starch producers today is extremely challenging. The political agreement signed on 6 July should pave the way to new export opportunities for many EU starch producers. Starch Europe looks forward to the publication of the details of the concessions granted on EU starch products and hopes the deal will be finalised and implemented with minimum delay. We much appreciate the work of Commissioner Malmström and Commissioner Hogan in achieving this important step for the EU-Japan trade and thank them for their continued commitment to its rapid completion.’

Market Research and Market Trends of Starch derivatives Market
  • Many major key players within the starch Industry, such as Avebe and  Ingredion have invested heavily in product capacity expansions and setting up new plants as a result of the growing demand from the food and beverages industry, pharmaceutical industry and many more. ADM has acquired Chamtor, a French wheat processing company, in 2017 thus boosting its starch production capabilities as well.
  • There is Research being done in Nigeria, an importer of $200 million worth starch, for finding alternative sources for the production of starch and its derivatives, instead of Tapioca, a staple food in Nigeria, so as to compete in a the global market. The research done so far by the Raw material and Research and Development Council has shown that Tacca involucrate, a non-staple resource, is the most plausible alternative for starch production.
  • There is an upsurge in the experimentation within the food and beverages industry of introducing new textures and feels for the consumers within the food and beverages industry. This is a growth factor for the starch additives markets as starch additives make up the texturants for the food and beverages industry.
  • A major trend that is seen in the related market is the increasing number of companies that are also coming up with products that are Non-GMO verified so as to supply to the increasing demand for these products from the USA and Europe.
