Biofueled: Demand for renewable fuel will spur growth, but wholesale bypass will hurt profitability

Corn, Wheat & Soybean Wholesaling in the US

Government subsidies for ethanol production and increasing biofuel mandates are keeping corn, wheat and soybean wholesalers busy. Demand for corn and soybeans, key components in ethanol manufacturing, skyrocketed in response to the Energy Policy Act of 2005. As production of these products increased, so did revenue for wholesalers. Though the demand surge is waning, wholesalers are able to stay afloat by being competitive in the international market.

Operators in this industry purchase and distribute grains like corn, rice and wheat, dry beans, soybeans and other inedible beans. They distribute these products to food processors, industrial manufacturers, animal feed producers, exporters and other buyers. The industry includes players that operate grain elevators for bulk wholesale, but excludes players that operate grain elevator establishments for storage. Wholesalers of field and garden seeds are also excluded from this industry.

This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
