Applications in Food Industry is Expected to Surge

Starch is a carbohydrate derived from agricultural raw materials which are widely present in food applications. Market growth is fuelled by diversified applications of starch & its derivatives for food production and industrial purposes such as native starch, modified starch, maltodextrin, cyclodextrin and glucose syrup. In addition, it is one of the most important polymers used extensively daily in both food and non-food applications.

Commercialized goods such as corn and other types of cereals usually undergo physical modification or simple chemical modification to derive starch that can be used across various industries. Starch recovery systems therefore are likely to witness increasing demand in the coming years

On the flipside the spread of coronavirus and negative economic implications of the outbreak may have adverse impact on the market. Various restrictions are implemented and preventive measures are adopted to contain the spread. Restrictions imposed on travel and transport are making it difficult to procure potatoes which are primary sources of starch. Looming economic slowdown is affecting the agriculture sector as well. Labour shortage in farming and industries could negatively impact the overall market.

Large-Scale Potato Processing Industries by Plant Size are Thriving

Large-scale plants depend on an eco-efficient methods of extracting starch from potato wastewater, creating demand for recovery of starch systems. Budget availability is one of the key factors which has made large scale industries early adopters of starch recovery systems. The need to reduce the costs of treating wastewater and gaining additional income by selling the recovered starch are some of the reasons for implementing the recovery systems. These factors are driving market demand for starch recovery systems.

Adoption of Hydrocyclones and Centrifuges is Increasing

The rising investments by the potato processing companies and the increasing demand for fresh, functional and convenience foods drive the potato processing industry. Because of its multifunctionality, large-scale potato producers prefer hydrocyclones and centrifuges to recover starch. Potato processing update with eco-efficiency encourages the adoption of starch recovery systems, convinces the market for hydrocyclones and centrifuges.


  • Leading players are focusing on acquisitions and partnership to gain competitive advantage Besides this, they are focusing on the launch of novel technologies
  • In June 2018, Alfa Laval (Sweden) announced the launch of UniDisc, a new disk stack separator. This disk technology would increase the efficiency of separation by 30% due to the low spacing between the disks.
  • In September 2018, Ferrum (Switzerland) acquired Hiller GmbH (Germany). This acquisition would allow Hiller GmbH to improve its role in the economically competitive market and extend its operations in the regions of Asia and North America.

Diverse Applications of Starch Recovery Systems will Boost Growth

In terms of application, the frozen products segment of the starch recovery systems market is accounts largest share and expected to dominant the highest CAGR in forecast period. Frozen potato products such as French fries are getting popular globally, and the rising demand for these products is attracting the key players to increase production.

A large number of industry players are establishing frozen potato processing lines all over the globe. This development is driving the demand for starch recovery systems to a rapid rate. The increased demand for frozen potato products has a positive effect on starch recovery systems market growth.

Asia Pacific is Projected to Account for the Largest Market Size

During the forecast period Asia Pacific is projected to dominate the global market for starch recovery systems. The expansion of the potato processing industry is driving demand for the Asia Pacific starch recovery systems market. Due to the increasing demand for processed potato products, the potato processing industry in Asia Pacific is experiencing growth. Furthermore, in recent years, the potato processing industries have established a trend towards eco-efficient processing systems with better quality goods and reduced industrial discharge; this is also driving the demand in this area.

These factors are expected to create a potential demand in the potato processing industry for starch recovery systems. Promising markets such as India and China, along with other Asian countries, hold great potential for the growth of starch recovery systems.

Increasing Potato Production is Driving Market Growth

Growing potato processing industry across the globe is driving the demand for starch recovery systems market. Additionally, diverse use of starch and its food nutrition derivatives is also expected to significantly affect the demand for starch recovery systems. In addition, the increasing need for the method of producing eco-efficiency in the food processing industry is expected to have a significant effect on the demand for starch recovery systems. Evolving high yielding equipment with a low operating cost in the food processing industry is anticipated to generate untapped opportunity for the market participants.

How Growth will Unfold

Thriving potato processing activities along with the escalating consumption of snack food items such as frozen potato items are likely to drive the expansion of starch recovery systems market over the upcoming years. Apart from this, massive funding of research and development activities in food processing operations by leading companies operating in the market will push the starch recovery systems market revenue.

Nonetheless, aspects such as high research & development costs along with lack of infrastructural growth are bound to pose a threat to the market surge. In addition, the growing environmental considerations and the preference of manufacturers for affordable production methods would catalyze the development of the demand for starch recovery systems over the ensuing years.
