The cereal ingredients market was valued at USD XX million in 2016 and is forecasted to reach USD XX million by 2021, with a CAGR of X%.
Cereal crops, the source of energy to living beings and produced in enormous quantities, are cultivated for their edible component grain. Cereals are a rich source of vitamins, minerals, fats and proteins; they are considered as staple crops. In some developing countries, ingredients such as the rice, millet, maize, and wheat are part of daily foods. In developed countries, owing to people's preference for fast foods and ready-to-eat foods, cereal ingredients have variable and moderate consumption, yet they play a substantial role in the daily diet.
The increasing demand for cereal grains by the livestock industry, along with the rising consumption of cereal as a staple food, are driving the market. Moreover, the increasing consumption of beer has also prompted the demand for cereals, such as barley and oats. One of the major factors hindering this market is the potential for contamination of cereal products by pests, rusts, etc. Lack of research to improve the quality of cereal grains is also restraining the cereal ingredients market. Further improvements in the cereal crop breeding technique would create an opportunity for the market. Increasing population, coupled with the widening natural and nutritive food demand over the processed food are predicted to uplift the global cereal ingredients market growth in the coming years. During the grain extrusion process, there is a significant amount of protein disruption resulting in deteriorating cereal ingredient quality. This factor is expected to restrain the market over the forecast period. In addition, volatile prices of raw materials are also expected to act as major hindrance for the global cereal ingredients market growth.
The global cereal ingredient market can be segmented by type and application. On the basis of type, it is segmented into wheat, rice, oats, barley, and others. Cereal ingredients are further divided into the puff, grit, flake, and a few other categories, whereas rice is categorized into puffs, chunks, grit, and others. Oats, barley, and corn are also classified into the same type of categories. Based on the application, this market is segmented into animal feed, breakfast cast, brewing, biofuel etc.
North America is dominating the cereal ingredient market, followed by Europe and Asia-Pacific. This demand is expected to rise in countries including China, India Australia, and Japan. Increased demand for processed food in the Middle East region is projected to augment the cereal ingredient market over the forecast period. The Asia-Pacific region market is expected to grow at a CAGR of X% during the forecast period; this growth will be accounted mostly as a result of an increase in the per capita cereal consumption and also processed cereal industries in developing countries such as China, India, Vietnam, Thailand, and Japan. China and India are expected to be the primary markets for cereal ingredients owing to enormous raw materials availability, cheap labor, along with the massive availability of man power.
Russia has emerged as the largest cereal ingredient market in Europe and is predicted to grow over the forecast period. Europe has the largest demand for malting barley cereals while fuelling demand for breakfast cereals from emerging countries like China, India, and Indonesia has created the need for cereal ingredients. However, North America has the largest market for breakfast cereal ingredients.
Some of key players in the global cereal ingredient market include Kerry Group, ADM, Associated British Foods, ABF plc, Sunopta Inc, Ricebran Technologies, Cereal Ingredients Inc, Archer Daniels Midland Company, Bunge Limited, and Limagrain.
