Rising demand for modified starch since it is utilized in pharmaceutical formulations as a binder, disintegrate, and filler to improve drug distribution and bioavailability is another factor driving the market revenue growth. It is commonly used in tablets, capsules, and other oral dosage forms to provide controlled medicine release, improve patient compliance, and increase dissolution rate.

However, modified starches often have lower nutritional content compared to native starches because the modification process can lead to a reduction in essential nutrients such as vitamins and minerals which is a major factor restraining the market revenue growth.
