Global Cassava Starch Market (2021 to 2026) - Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecasts

·9-min read

Dublin, May 24, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Cassava Starch Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2021-2026" report has been added to's offering.

The global cassava starch market reached a production volume of 8.8 Million Tons in 2020. Cassava starch, or tapioca, is procured from cassava roots through the process of washing and pulping. It is rich in iron, folate, manganese, carbohydrates and calcium. In comparison with its alternatives, cassava is a relatively cheap raw material containing a high concentration of starch. Moreover, cassava starch offers numerous advantages such as neutral taste, high level of purity and excellent thickening characteristics. It also has a high paste clarity, freeze-thaw stability and paste viscosity. Owing to this, cassava starch finds applications in diverse industries like food, beverage, fuel, textile, sweeteners and paper. Looking forward, the publisher expects the global cassava starch market to exhibit moderate growth during the next five years.

Global Cassava Starch Market Drivers:

Being a rich source of carbohydrates, cassava starch is used as a major ingredient in a number of food products. The global food industry is currently growing at a rapid pace due to urbanization, expanding working population and rising household incomes, especially in the emerging nations like India and China. This is has led to an increase in the demand for ready-to-eat food products which has stimulated the growth of the cassava starch industry.

Earlier, the usage of cassava starch was largely confined to food applications, however, owing to its easy availability, it is also being utilized for non-food applications like manufacturing pharmaceuticals, adhesives, papers, etc. Growth in these end-use industries is providing a thrust to the market growth.

In the textile industry, cassava starch is used for sizing, finishing and printing due to its flexibility, resistance to abrasion and the ability to form a bond with the fiber. In finishing, cassava starch is utilized to cover blemishes or defects and provide a finishing look to the end product. Increasing westernization is fueling the growth of the textile industry, in turn, boosting the cassava starch market.

The growing health consciousness along with the rising cases of diabetes have stimulated the demand for artificial sweeteners across the globe. The increasing demand for these sweeteners is expected to drive the cassava starch market in the coming years.

Breakup by End-Use:

Based on end-use, the report finds that the sweeteners industry accounts for the majority of the total market share. Cassava starch is highly preferred for the production of sweeteners as a result of its high level of purity, excellent texture, thickening properties and neutral taste. It is followed by MSG/lysine, food industries, paper industries, modified starch, sago pearl and textile.

Regional Insights:

On a geographical front, Asia represents the largest producer of cassava starch, holding around three-fourths of the total share. Cassava starch is comparatively cheaper and occupies agriculturally marginal areas due to which economically backward farmers are able to cultivate the crop. Asia is followed by Africa, Latin America and Others.

Competitive Landscape:

The competitive landscape of the cassava starch industry is fragmented in nature due to the presence of numerous small and large players.

Some of the leading players operating in the market are:

  • TCS Tapioca

  • Eiamehang Tapioca

  • Sunrise International

  • PT Buda Starch & Sweetener

  • SPAC Tapioca
