Global Industrial Starch Market – Overview

Starch is an essential part of adhesive formulations and has a vast number of industrial applications to its name. Industrial starch is derived from several natural sources like rice, tapioca, wheat, potato, and maize. It is primarily consumed the most across the food industry, wherein it is used to manufacture a number of products. This includes bakery products, canned jams and fruits, confectionaries, monosodium glutamate (MSG), and commercial caramel. Its application stretches into the non-food industry like textile, building materials, paper, mining, and consumer products industries. Industrial starch is used extensively in the paper industry for the manufacturing and coating operations. It is used in the textile industry for cloth printing and finishing. It is used for the well-drilling process in the mining industry. When starch is mixed with clay, it provides a mixture that has proper water holding capability and viscosity to be used for drilling oil wells. Industrial starch is firstly transformed into sugars by malting it down. Following this, it is fermented to yield ethanol to manufacture whiskey, biofuel, and beer. When dissolved into warm water, industrial starch has a number of applications such as adhesives, thickeners, emulsifiers, and others. The starch is extracted and refined from roots, tubers, and seeds with the help of various processes such as sleeving, wet grinding, washing, and drying. The global industrial starch market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 4% from 2016 to 2022.

According to the latest in-depth research conducted by the Market Research Future (MRFR), there is a rising demand for adhesive from the packaging industry with the proliferating growth of the e-commerce industry. Additionally, the growing demand for fast foods is also growing due to the convenience it offers. These two factors are the major driving forces for the industrial starch market.
