Various techniques for extracting starch include wet milling, protein digestion, high-intensity ultrasound, and alkaline steeping method. Corn starch is also known as maize starch which is derived from the corn grain that is mainly utilized as a chemical additive and food ingredient.

Corn starch is a tasteless, odorless, and white powder used in papermaking, food processing, and industrial adhesives. It is also an ingredient for several oral pharmaceutical and cosmetics products. It is widely used as a lotion in surgical gloves and diaphragms. In addition, corn starch can be added to some food products as an anti-caking or thickening agent, and sometimes it is discovered in topical drugs like a skin protectant.

Corn starch is used to sustain the glucose amount in the body, mainly for those who undergo glycogen storage disorder. Corn starch is used as an industrial starch for producing paper and in the textile business to provide stiffness to clothes.

COVID-19 Impact Analysis

As the impact of COVID-19 was felt worldwide, food & beverage businesses also experienced notably decreased consumption and obstacles like disturbance in the supply chains. Whereas at-home consumption has displayed a spike during the pandemic period. As, the corn Starch derivatives are mainly consumed within the food & beverage industry, the demand for corn starch derivatives seen a huge decline globally in the initial months of pandemic period. This was result of temporary closure of commercial food businesses and the disruption in the supply chain and production. Apart from this, the production of cosmetics & personal care products, pharmaceuticals & animal feed manufacturing have also declined because of COVID-19. This also has resulted in the decline of the development of the corn and corn starch derivatives market.

Market Growth Factors

Functional qualities of starch derivatives

The growth in functional qualities of starch derivatives makes them suitable for various non-food and food applications. It could be utilized as a textural and thickening agent, emulsifier, fat replacement, etc. As starch derivatives can bulk up and absorb water, they provide the food items that are employed in the required mouthfeel. They are a considerable substitute for fat due to this. As texture is one of the main factors in deciding if a customer will take a food item, starch is also used in food items as a gelling or thickening agent. The development of several components might be changed to overcome the formulation issues is because of the advances being made in technologies utilized to process starch.

Untapped usage of starch derivatives

Several feedstocks which are based on starch could be utilized to produce polymers. A vast variety of biotechnological products, comprising antibiotics, organic acids, hormones, and vitamins, could be produced in huge quantities utilizing modified starch as a fermentation base. Improving the commodity root for obtaining starch and combining modification procedures adds a broader scope of potential uses. This has resulted in wide usage of corn starch and corn starch derivatives. Additionally, the market will witness growth in the upcoming years as a result of the development of innovative technologies as well as experiments being done among different sectors.

Market Restraining Factor

High R&D cost becoming an obstacle

One of the main elements constraining the development of the corn and corn starch derivatives market is the high cost to be spent on research and development of the production and extraction of starch derivatives. They are utilized in several businesses like pharmaceutical, food & beverage, paper, etc., yet they have minimal natural sources for obtaining starch. Starch derivatives offer various benefits which has compelled marketers and manufacturers to produce a broad range of starch derivatives for non-food and food applications. Eventually negatively affecting the market growth.

Product Outlook

Based on product, the corn and corn starch derivatives market are segmented into corn starch, corn starch derivatives, corn oil, corn flour, corn meal/flakes/grits and corn protein. In 2021, the corn starch derivatives segment dominated the corn and corn starch derivates market with the maximum revenue share. Corn syrup is used to maintain moisture in food products and as a sweetener to enrich the taste. It also improves the volume and texture, as well as enhances the steadiness and the consumption period of the food products. Due to this, it is utilized mainly in the food & beverage business and the pharmaceutical business.

Application Outlook

On the basis of application, the corn and corn starch derivatives market are fragmented into food & beverage, animal feed, paper & board, pharmaceutical, biodiesel, textiles and others. In 2021, the animal feed garnered a remarkable growth rate in the corn and corn starch derivatives market. During the process of wet milling, the refining process also releases vitamins, minerals, protein and fiber. Typically, these elements were used as feed for fish, cattle, poultry, and hogs, due to being a healthy diet and a good source of energy. About 35-40% of the corn utilized by the corn refining businesses become animal feeds. As a result, high-level animal feed components are obtained from corn, which is an essential staple of poultry and meat businesses.
