Global Cassava Starch Market Inflating Due to Low Capital Investment

Global Cassava Starch Market Inflating Due to Low Capital Investment
The global cassava starch market is currently experiencing a positive growth. This is due to the factors which include high nutritional content, thriving food industry, rising non-food applications and low capital investment.

Cassava starch, also known as tapioca starch, can be easily extracted from the roots of cassava as compared to other starches. It incorporates a simple process which can be performed on a small-scale with limited capital. In addition to this, cassava starch has high amounts of calcium, iron, folate, manganese and carbohydrates, whereas low amounts of saturated fat and sodium. Some of the physical and chemical properties of cassava starch include high level of purity, neutral taste, high paste viscosity, high paste clarity and high freeze-thaw stability which are advantageous to many industries. A new research report titled “Cassava Starch Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2018-2023” by IMARC Group estimates that the market reached a volume of nearly 6.3 million tons in 2017.

Market Drivers/Constraints:

  • In the adhesive industry, cassava starch is highly preferred as it possesses characteristics which help in improving the appearance, strength and printing properties of paper.
