Resistant Starch Market size to surpass $20 Bn by 2032

  • Published Date: March 15, 2023

Resistant Starch Market size is projected to cross USD 20 billion by 2032, according to a new research report by Global Market Insights Inc.

The report reveals that the increasing consumption of dietary fibers and the burden of chronic diseases will proliferate the sales of resistant starch supplements. In 2020, nearly 1.9 million new colorectal cancer cases were registered globally. Since resistant starch can reduce the pH level, reduce inflammation, and lead to beneficial effects on the colon, product usage will rise to lower the risk of colorectal cancer. The improvement of insulin sensitivity is another key benefit of the product, enabling it to serve as a preventive solution for obesity, diabetes, and other health conditions.

High awareness about health benefits of vegetable-rich diets to spur resistant starch demand

With respect to source, the resistant starch market from vegetables segment is slated to depict over 7% CAGR through 2032. Vegetables are widely consumed as a source of minerals, vitamins, and antioxidants for the proper functioning of the human body. Chickpeas, for example, are considered a nutritional powerhouse as they are a good source of dietary fiber and resistant starch. The report cites that the increased awareness of the health advantages of a diet rich in vegetables will contribute to resistant starch production.

Resistant starch type 4 to gain popularity due to blood fat level reduction & other health attributes

Resistant starch market from RS4 product segment will reach USD 2.5 billion by 2032, due to its addition to the FDA’s list of dietary fibers and application scope as a gluten alternative in bakery products. Type 4 resistance starch, a class of non-digestible prebiotic dietary fibers, also demonstrates metabolic health benefits for the host. This starch supplementation can also increase fiber consumption and reduce abnormal fat levels in the blood.

Convenience food consumption due to busy lifestyles will stimulate resistant starch usage

Based on application, the resistant starch market share for convenience food applications is estimated to witness over 6% CAGR from 2023 to 2032, driven by busy lifestyles, rising income, and rapid advancement in packaging and processing technology. For example, noodles are consumed as a staple food in several countries. Since the incorporation of resistance starch flour can help develop low-GI noodles that contribute to gastrointestinal health, the rapid boost in convenience food sales will hasten the industry development.

 Rising prevalence of chronic diseases to proliferate resistant starch use in North America

North American resistant starch market is expected to exceed USD 5 billion by 2032, owing to government initiatives on promoting healthy food consumption. Obesity has emerged as a serious problem, putting people at risk of poor health conditions in the U.S. As per data from the CDC, between 2017 and 2020, obesity affected nearly 14.7 million children and adolescents in the region. Persistent R&D efforts to enhance starch chemistry will thus accelerate the production of resistant starch in the region.
