Modified Starch Market Size, Share, Forecast and Growth Opportunity 

Modified starches are starch extracts which are made from processing refined starches. Modified starches have better capabilities such as dissolves in cold water, stable thickness in different temperatures, hot fluidity and persistent stability. Modified starches is very much applied in the food industry and in the pulp and paper industry specifically in ridged cardboard and paper to increase the strength, surface and appearance of paper. The food and beverage industry is a significant consumer of modified starch, using it as a functional ingredient in various products. The increasing demand for processed foods, convenience foods, and functional beverages drove the growth of the modified starch market. But somehow, the instability in raw material costs and regulatory constraints are expected to hamper the market growth. The Modified Starch Market is projected to grow at the rate of 2.8% CAGR by 2028.
