Pea Starch Market Overview

The global pea starch market is likely to expand at a CAGR of 10.3% over the forecast period of 2022-2030, affirms Market Research Future (MRFR) in an in-depth study. The global pea starch market is expected to catapult to USD 567 Mn by the end of 2030 from USD 86.5 Mn in 2022.

Pea starch is mainly available as a by-product during the process of protein extraction from peas which is a relatively cheap source of starch. Widespread acceptance of natural ingredients in food products has proven to be a plus for the growth of the pea starch market outlook.

Pea starch has superior gelling properties as compared to other native starches due to its high amylose content. The ability of pea starch to form gel in water at a much low dosage has helped it gain many accolades as an ideal food ingredient. It is widely used in the preparation of food products such as noodles, vermicelli, or gummy confectioneries.

Pea starch can withstand high-temperature cooking and remain stable under variant pH levels as compared to corn, tapioca, and potato native starches. Pea starch is applied to meat products for improvement of texture and mouthfeel and also used in bakery, dairy, and canned food products. Expanding food industry is generating persistent demand for pea starch which is majorly driving the growth of the market.

Pea starch is non-allergic, non-GMO, and gluten-free which makes them a preferred ingredient in various food products. The prevalent dietary trend of gluten-free food consumption is expected to further propel the demand for pea starch. Moreover, pea starch is high in nutritional content and low in calorie. Growing demand for functional and low-calories food ingredients coupled with the popularity of healthy dieting is expected to take the global pea starch market ahead.

Enticed by the growing popularity of pea starch, various food manufacturers are offering innovative food variants incorporated with pea starch which has further induced demand within the global pea starch market. Moreover, pea starch is almost exclusively utilized for industrial application which is another factor triggering growth within the global pea starch market. However, allergic reactions may be caused by pea starch which can inhibit the growth of the global pea starch market.
