Corn Starch Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2018-2023

After cellulose, starch is the most abundant carbohydrate in nature. It is present in seeds, roots and tubers of higher plants for energy storage. Starch can be extracted from a wide variety of agricultural products. These include – corn, cassava, wheat and potato and in a lesser amount from rice, barley, sorghum, sago, etc. Corn currently represents the most popular feedstock accounting for around 80% of the total global starch production.

Corn starch is obtained from the endosperm of the corn kernel and has wide applications as a food ingredient, sweeteners, ethanol, paper making, etc. The United States is currently the biggest producer of corn starch. The United States was followed by China and Europe. The top 5 players currently account for around one third of the total corn starch produced worldwide. Some of the key manufacturers of corn starch include Cargill, Ingredion, ADM, Tate & Lyle, Roquette etc. Looking forward, we expect the global corn starch market to grow at a CAGR of around 3.7% during the next five years.
