Cassava Starch Market: Global Sales Analysis and Opportunity 2026

According to a new study by IMARC Group, titled “Cassava Starch Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2021-2026”, the global cassava starch market size reached a production volume of 8.8 Million Tons in 2020. Cassava starch, also known as tapioca starch, refers to the flour produced from cassava roots. Its production requires a simple process which can be performed on a small-scale with limited capital. Characterized by a neutral taste, it is a gluten-free and non-allergenic product which comprises low amounts of saturated fat and sodium. Besides this, cassava starch also contains amylopectin and amylose, and is rich in calcium, iron, folate, manganese and carbohydrates. The presence of these nutrients, along with its properties like high-paste clarity and freeze-thaw stability, has created a high demand for cassava starch across various sectors.

Market Trends:

As cassava starch is one of the most abundant sources of carbohydrates, it is widely used as a thickening agent in bakery and pastry products, yogurt, soups, noodles, ice creams, and soft drinks. Apart from this, it is employed in the paper industry owing to its water holding property and stable viscosity. It is also utilized for sizing, finishing and printing fabrics in the textile industry. Further, due to the numerous health benefits offered by cassava starch, like maintaining blood sugar levels, reducing cholesterol and preventing constipation, health-conscious consumers are preferring cassava starch over its substitutes. However, the price of cassava starch is higher in comparison with the alternatives, such as corn starch, which hinders the growth of the market. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to reach a volume of 11.0 Million Tons by 2026.
