Maize is perhaps the most seasoned plant trained by people. Maize or Corn, additionally known by its logical name Zea mays, is a plant having a place with the group of grasses. Maize goes under coarse grains classification and is the third biggest planted yield after wheat and rice. Maize is a yearly plant which is developed all-inclusive because of its uncommon geographic versatility anyway its development is for the most part gathered in the Northern side of the equator nations. A critical bit for example over 60% of worldwide maize creation is utilized in creature feed as it gives a high measure of vitality and oil substance to the animals.
Moreover, maize is used as staple food and also find a broad range of industrial application such as food processing and ethanol production. Maize market has undergone dramatic change over the past few decades owing to the green revolution and rapid development in biotechnological advancement in seed and production which has resulted in the availability of genetically modified maize seeds which offers increased average maize yield. For instance, according to Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), globally the yield of maize crop has grown to over 11% in 2014 from 2004, while the total production quantity of maize increased around 28% in 2014 from 2004 owing to the increasing demand of maize from its various end use application industries. Furthermore, escalating demand for ethanol is also anticipated to drive the growth of maize market over the forecast period.
Maize Market Segmentation
Global Maize market can be segmented on the basis of type, color, end use, nature, and region. On the basis type, maize market is segmented into the dent or field maize, flint or Indian maize, floury maize, and sweet maize. On the basis of color, Maize market is segmented into yellow maize and white maize. The yellow maize segment is anticipated to remain dominant in terms of value over the forecast period owing to its usage in animal feed and high geographical adaptability while the white maize requires more favorable geographical condition and is generally recognized as the food crop. On the basis of the end use, maize market is segmented into Food and Beverage, Animal feed, Pharmaceutical, Personal Care & Cosmetics, Industrial Application and Others. The food and beverage segment is further sub-segmented into direct consumption and processed consumption. On the basis of nature, maize market is segmented into conventional maize and organic maize. Conventional maize is further sub-segmented into non-GMO maize and GMO maize.
Maize Market: Regional Outlook
On the basis of geography, the Maize market is segmented into North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and MEA. Globally, among all regions, North America is expected to be the largest market for the Maize, followed by Asia Pacific over the forecast period owing to the high production of maize crop and its consumption in animal feed. Globally, U.S. is the largest producer of maize followed by China and is expected to contribute maximum revenue in the near future. However, Asia Pacific is anticipated to witness rapid growth over the forecast period owing to increasing demand for Maize in animal feed due to meteorically increasing population dynamics which has resulted in a sudden surge in the demand for food.
Maize Market: Dynamics
Increasing demand for animal feed and industrial use owing to ever increasing global population is expected to drive the growth of global maize market over the forecast period. Moreover, increasing health awareness in emerging and developing economies have resulted in the shift of dietary preference of people towards protein-rich food which has led to an increased demand for all feed grains which also include maize, thus driving the growth of the global maize market.
However, constant fluctuation in the prices of maize and rising concern of consumers towards genetically modified maize which has resulted in the demand for the segregation of non-GM crop from GM crop has resulted in an added expense to overall supply chain thus restraining the growth of global maize market.
