Secretary-General Wei of China Starch Association gave a special speech on "Development and Future Direction of Starch Industry". The speech is rich in content and the amount of information is very large. It elaborates on the status quo and future of China's starch industry, especially the status quo of starch sugar. A detailed analysis of future developments was carried out. In 2017, the output of starch sugar was 11.78 million tons, up 15% over the previous year, liquid sugar production increased by 36%, and solid sugar production decreased by 12.5%. There is still room for growth of liquid sugar in the future. The concentration of starch sugar production is further accelerated. However, due to the large-scale expansion and large-scale construction, the competition in the future starch sugar market will be extremely fierce, and survival will become a huge difficulty for starch sugar enterprises.
