Modified starches are increasingly replacing native starches in the food processing industry, owing to the improved and enhanced functional properties of modified starches. Modified starch is used in the food industry as a texture improver, fat replacer, and for potential flavor masking of food products. Furthermore, modified starch provides functional properties such as taste, texture, and thickness to the processed food, while extending their shelf life. Increasing urbanization, coupled with the changing consumers’ eating habits, has given rise to the demand for convenience and processed food. The increasing demand from consumers has made manufacturers improve the quality and efficiency of their product offerings, which is creating a strong demand for modified starch over the forecast period. The unique functional benefits associated with modified starch makes it a vital ingredient in end-use industries, including textile and paper industry, and cosmetics, and personal care formulations. Modified starch is a multifunctional additive used in the cosmetic and personal care industry. In the past few years, the trend for natural cosmetic products is witnessing an ever-growing demand, and hence, manufacturers are incorporating new cosmetic products using natural ingredients such as modified starch to gain traction of the more extensive consumer base. Also, modified starch finds application in the textile industry for the sizing of medium-count and coarse yarns. Thus, increasing demand from end-use industries is anticipated d to provide a substantial market opportunity for modified starch.
