Modified starches are starch derivatives which are prepared from processing modified starches. Modified starches have better functionality in terms of solubility with cold water, stable viscosity with variations of temperature, hot fluidity and constant stability. Modified starches finds its application in the food industry (microwaveable ready meals, powdered soups, jams, and others.) and in the pulp and paper industry particularly in corrugated cardboard and paper to improve paper strength, surface appearance and others.
Versatility of starches especially modified starches, makes it suitable for wide variety of food application. They are highly used as food additives as they enhances texture, viscosity, gel formation, adhesion, binding, moisture retention, film formation and more. In recent years, modified starches are also used as fat substitutes in the production of low calorie food. Globally the market for modified starches is estimated to grow at the rate of about 4.22% from 2016 to 2022.
The global modified starches market is in the entire world; to name few regions where this market exist are North America, Europe, China and Asia Pacific. Among these APAC has the major market share followed by North America. Europe is projected to grow at the fastest rate in the coming years owing to rising demand for modified starches from the paper industry, and textiles. North America dominated the modified starches market and market volume is projected to reach 43.92 MMT by 2022 and will grow at a CAGR of 3.93%. Due to the cheap raw materials & low production costs as well as less stringent environment regulations Asia-Pacific region is in a better position to produce starch at more competitive prices than developed countries in European and North American region.
