Modified Starch Market – Latest Research, Industry Analysis, Driver, Trends, Business Overview, Demand and Forecast 2022-2032

According to a recent report by Future Market Insights, a market research and competitive intelligence provider, The global modified starch market is expected to be worth USD 12.6 billion in 2022, rising to USD 21.2 billion by 2032, representing a CAGR of 5.6 percent.

Modified starches are employed in a variety of food products because their functional qualities are far superior to those of native starches. Many physical modification procedures, such as heat-moisture treatment and annealing, cause starch granules to be physically modified without being damaged or gelatinized.

The demand for processed and convenient foods is increasing as the world’s population grows. Modified starch is a crucial and useful element found in ready-to-eat foods and products. With the rise in demand for processed foods, demand for modified starch is likely to rise as well, boosting market growth.
