Largest Market


Highest Growing Market

Asia Pacific

According to Stratistics MRC, the Global Potato Starch Market is accounted for $4.14 billion in 2021 and is expected to reach $6.10 billion by 2028 growing at a CAGR of 5.7% during the forecast period. Potato starch is a soft, odorless, and tasteless powder which is extracted from the cells of root tubers of the potato plant containing starch grains. Potato starch is a source of carbohydrates and is often used as a thickening agent in the food industry. 

Market Dynamics:


Increasing demand for starch ingredients

Starches are used in numerous industrial applications and have gained popularity in industrial applications due to their ability to impart textural characteristics and aid in the formation of gels or films. These starches are required to be chemically or physically modified to improve their performance or provide functional properties in various industrial applications. Native starches are being increasingly modified to allow the alteration of physical and chemical properties, and are termed modified starches.


Availability of a range of alternatives

When it comes to substitutes and/or alternatives to potato starch, the market is flooded with many options, such as corn, wheat, rice, and arrowroot starch, among others. These starches have multiple similarities and differences based on their nutrient and chemical contents and can be substituted for potato starch depending on the requirements. These substitutes are gaining ground because they offer more health benefits over potato starch and are much more easily available.


Rising demand for gluten-free alternatives

The food industry is evolving at an exceptional pace, which is a direct consequence of the ever-evolving consumer demand for label-friendly end products. The food industry, especially the bakery industry, is observing an increased demand for gluten-free edibles, as it is among the top utilizers of wheat flour, which is a direct and easily available source of gluten protein. Potato starch is an effective alternative to wheat flour, especially in bakery applications. It does not differ a lot from wheat flour in its physical appearance and chemical composition, and also does not contain even small amounts of gluten.


Operational challenges associated production processes

With the development in technologies and production processes across the manufacturing sector, the production of potato starch is a highly competitive market. Along with highly technical production processes, the consumer demand for quality products has risen tremendously. The demand is also high in terms of volume for various food, feed, and industrial applications.

The native segment is expected to be the largest during the forecast period

The native segment is estimated to have a lucrative growth as these are used for a wide range of practical purposes in food products. It provides high viscosity and heightens the taste, odor, and color of the food in which it is used due to the low protein and fat/lipid content. It is a flexible ingredient in various foods, providing good organoleptic properties.

The industrial segment is expected to have the highest CAGR during the forecast period

The industrial segment is anticipated to witness the fastest CAGR growth during the forecast period as starch is the most vital ingredient in the papermaking and textile industry, and it is so important that starch consumption by weight in papermaking and conversion is ranked third after cellulose fiber and mineral pigmentation.

Region with highest share:

Europe is projected to hold the largest market share during the forecast period due to rapid urbanization, rising interest in organic and plant-based food products, changing consumer preferences, and the rising trend of consuming natural foods.

Region with highest CAGR:

Asia Pacific is projected to have the highest CAGR over the forecast period owing to the flourishing food industry in developing markets such as India and China, rising interest in trying western cuisines, and the growing popularity of ready-to-eat and ready-to-cook products.

Key players in the market

Some of the key players profiled in the Potato Starch Market include VIMAL PPCE, Tereos, AKV Langholt, Südstärke GmbH, Royal Ingredients Group, Avebe, Rädchen, Pepees S.A., Lyckeby, KMC, Ingredion Incorporated, Emsland, Roquette Frères, Agrana Beteiligungs-AS and Tate & Lyle.

Key Developments:

In March 2021, Ingredion Incorporated launched a new addition to its extensive range of potato-based solutions for the U.S. and Canada, ULTRA-TEX® 1311 modified potato starch. ULTRA-TEX 1311 modified potato starch can be used in a wide variety of traditional and alternative formulations to create indulgent textures, improve stability vs. native potato starch, or replace oil without compromising sensory appeal.

In July 2020, Emsland partnered with Brenntag Food & Nutrition in Russia. The Emsland Group’s sales structure in Russia is being reorganized as a result of this strategic partnership. Brenntag will take over distribution of Emsland’s product portfolio for the food industry as well as technical specialities, which include native starches, modified starches, proteins, and fibers made from peas and potatoes.
