Modified Waxy Starch is the physical and chemical modification of native starches. The functional properties are improved to get advantageous properties over those of the native starches. Many physical modification processes includes annealing and heat-moisture treatment of starches without damage of the starch granules, without affecting size and shape. The chemical modification of starches are done by crosslinking method. Another chemical modification process is acetylation of starch with acetic anhydride. The modification changes the functional behavior of waxy starch and thus influence the application range over waxy starch products.
Chemically modified acetylated starch and cross-linked starch improves the cooking properties and food quality such as softness, stretch ability, coating and slipperiness increase. Chemical modification changes some functional properties of waxy starches which offers a wide range of applications. Acetylated starches are majorly used in food industries for several years because of important factors such as high solubility, low temperature of gelatinization and good cooking and storage ability. Among the carbohydrate group, starch is presently observing increased attention owing to its usefulness in different food products. Starch contributes mainly to the visual and textural properties of many food items. The major application of starch holds share in food and industrial applications as a thickener, colloidal stabilizer, gelling agent, bulking agent and water retention agent.
Taro is a very cheap source for starch extraction other than corn and potato. Though the physical and chemical properties are similar to native potato and corn starches. By modification of the physical and chemical properties, it will be helpful for industrial application.
As per U.S. Department of Agriculture, food expenditure has increased globally which marks China, the foremost to spend USD 4,422 per person, followed by U.S. with USD 2,408 per person and U.K. with USD 1,991 per person in 2016 which will anticipate the growth rate at a CAGR of 5.1% over the forecast period. The modified waxy starch market is expected to reach a value of USD 13.1billion at the end of the forecast period.
The modified waxy starch has recently become active with marginal improvement enhancing the profitability on the count of multiple applications and functions in many food and non-food segments.
Uses for modified waxy starch derivatives have been discovered by changing chemical and physical properties which is expected to drive the modified waxy starch market rapidly in the future owing to increasing demand in food sectors as thickeners, stabilizer, emulsifier, coating and texture changing purposes. The wide range of functions of modified waxy starch has an immense range of applications in food, paper, chemicals and pharmaceuticals and other sectors.
On the basis of regional platform, global Modified Waxy Starch market is segmented into five major regions including North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America and Middle East & Africa region.
Rising food habits are majorly driving the expenditure on food consumption which in turn accelerating the starch aided food products demand. The growing population and urbanization is significantly growing owing to industrialization where starch holds an inhabitable quantity and share in application. North America is expected to lead the modified waxy starch market during the forecast period. Asia Pacific will never the less expect a leading growth rate which will increase the market share of modified waxy starch on the back of rising population and innovations in research and development in India and China. Cosmetics industries established in the European countries is owing t0 impart share to contribute in the global modified waxy starch market. CLICK TO DOWNLOAD SAMPLE REPORT
Our-in depth analysis of the global Modified Waxy Starch market includes the following segments:
Global Modified Waxy Starch Market is further classified on the basis of region as follows:
The rising demand for modified waxy starch and derivatives for various processes in pharmaceutical, food and paper industries are expected to drive the market rapidly over the forecast period. The numerous uses of modified waxy starch in food industry has numerous applications including fat replacement, texture improving, enriching nutritional value by maintaining stability at high temperature. Additionally, modified waxy starch have their uses in paper industries for filter retention and paper coating; in industrial application as paint ingredient and as an adhesive. In cosmetics, chemicals and pharmaceutical industries, modified waxy starch is used as a binding agent in make-up, emulsifier for many cosmetic products, face creams, in pills and tablets.
However, development of contact dermatitis among people regarding intake of modified waxy starch is estimated to serve as the key restraints in the growth of the modified waxy starch market. The modified waxy starch when consumed regularly causes gastrointestinal diseases which is anticipated to hinder the market growth further over the forecast period.
