The market research report titled Maize (Corn) Products in India (Starch, Glucose, Dextrose, Sorbitol) Trends, Opportunities, Market Analysis and Forecasts (Upto 2017)’ released by Niir Project Consultancy Services, provides a comprehensive analysis on Indian maize products industry. Starch, Glucose, Dextrose and Sorbitol are maize products covered in this report. The report starts with a brief on the global scenario of maize and then proceeds to analyze the Indian scenario. The report provides an overview on Maize as a crop giving information about its soil suitability, sowing seasons and the types of maize that are produced in the nation. Maize is one of the oldest cultivated crops in the world. It is also one of the most important cereal crops globally and in India it is the third most important crop after rice and wheat. The suitability of maize to diverse environments is unmatched by any other crop and even every part of the maize plant has economic value: the grain, leaves, stalk, tassel, and cob can all be used to produce a large variety of food and non-food products. As it has yield potential far higher than any other cereal, it is sometimes referred to as the miracle crop or the ‘Queen of Cereals’.
It further explains the ways by which maize can be processed and the byproducts after such processes. Maize can be processed by two ways: Dry Milling and Wet Milling. Dry milling of maize produces corn meal, grits, germ and animal feed and wet milling produces starch, gluten and husk. These byproducts of maize processing are used in industries like paper, textiles, pharmaceutical and food & confectionary. Half of the maize in India is consumed as poultry feed, ~1/5 for human consumption and the rest is consumed for starch production, as cattle feed and in breweries.
The report provides detailed analysis of the industry by covering areas like growth drivers, trends in the industry as well as the SWOT analysis of the industry. Growth in the consumption of maize products will be majorly driven by the starch segment. Starch industry is often termed as sunrise sector of the nation apparently because of its widespread applicability across various industries. Maize starch in India is used relentlessly in paper, textile, pharma and food industry. The growth in these consumer industries will evidently be felt in the starch sector also. The report elucidates important numbers and forecasts of the consumer industries for better understanding. Also rising demand from the poultry sector will drive the volumes for maize products.
One of the trends that have been experienced in the industry is the innovative use of corn starch. Applications of corn starch are not just limited to the industries mentioned above; it has found its relevance in products like bags and car parts. Usage of corn starch bags is rising in India on the back of it being bio-degradable and hence environment friendly. They can also handle more weight and have longer shelf life. Corn starch is also being used in manufacturing of car parts to enhance the car safety aspects. Other trends are emergence of corn oil as an edible oil and also production of ethanol from corn.
