Moulding Starch Market Projected Growth Rate (2022-2032)


Moulding starch is a fine white powder that is generally obtained from native corn starch. It is being increasingly utilized in moulding, depositing, and drying processes of jellies, gummies, and other confectionery products to absorb moisture. Moreover, it is also blended with oil to reduce dusting.

During the last few decades, demand for moulding starch has increased substantially due to increased production and consumption of confectionery products such as chocolates, marshmallows, jellies, and the trend is likely to continue in the future.

Molding starch has a very low moisture content which enables it to absorb the moisture of jellies and other confectionery products. Thus, addition of moulding starch helps confectionery products to be ready in a short time. Moreover, it can also be used for forming crusts on the surface of candy shells.

During the production process, large trays are filled with moulding starch and then a mould is used to stamp or imprint the desired shape. Addition of moulding starch significantly absorbs the moisture of confectionery products, prevents stickiness, and ensures that shape is retained prior to depositing. Moreover, thanks to its neutral flavor, it does not interfere with the original taste of the confectionery products.

Leading manufacturers are continuously introducing new moulding starch solutions to allow customers to create confectionery products which accept and hold impressions, including letter and shapes effectively. This will help them to increase their customer base.

Which are Some Prominent Drivers Spearheading Moulding Starch Market Growth?

The swift growth of moulding starch market is attributable to the rising consumption of confectionery products worldwide, surging demand for non-GMO products, and innovations in moulding starch.

Moulding starch has become an integral part of confectionery production process for controlling moisture of products, enhancing their shelf life, and improving overall productivity. Growing focus of confectionery manufacturers to reduce holding times for improving productivity as well as for reducing work-in-progress will continue to push sales of moulding starch during the forecast period.

Numerous confectionery items such as candy corn, gummies, jelly bean centers etc. are being manufactured by using starch moulding techniques. Rising consumption of these confectionery products due to rapidly rising population, increasing disposable income, changing eating habits, and preference for convenience is anticipated to provide a strong thrust to the growth of moudling starch market in the forthcoming period.

Subsequently, increasing efforts of confectionery manufacturers for developing products with different shapes and sizes to woo more and more customers will further generate sales prospects for moulding starch during the forecast period.

In addition to this, changing consumer preference for products that contain non-GMO and natural ingredients coupled with rising demand for clean label products is anticipated to further expand the size of moulding starch market in future.

Various studies have revealed that GMO foods have the potential to give rise to certain health problems such as immune disorders. As a result, people have changed their preference towards products that contain non-GMO ingredients. To meet these demands, manufacturers are increasingly using moulding starch to develop non-GMO clean-label products.
