The significant consuming markets for corn include the United States, China, the European Union, Mexico, and Brazil. This growing demand in these regions is supported by the end-use sectors like the animal feed and corn starch markets. The United States and China are among the largest consumers owing to the significant presence of most of the end-use sectors in these regions. The countries that rely on imports are Mexico, Japan, South Korea, the European Union, and Egypt. The rising demand for corn in the United States is due to the growing feed sector and the industrial sector. The dominant application sector in the region is animal feed, followed by fuel ethanol. The growing corn starch processing industries are driving the demand for corn in China, as China is the leading key player in corn starch production. The country also accounts for a significant market share in other application sectors like HFCS and polyols.
The global corn market is being driven by the capacity expansions by major key players in the industry. Major key players, including Archer Daniels Midland Co (NYSE: ADM) as well as Tate & Lyle Plc, are expanding their production capacity and investing in mergers and acquisitions to enhance their output.
Properties and Applications
Corn refers to the yellow or white corn seeds, used mainly as livestock feed and as food for humans. It is also known as maize or Indian corn, a cereal plant belonging to the grass family called Poaceae, which has edible grain. The domesticated plant originated in the Americas, especially Mexico, and is among the most widely distributed food crops in the world.
Corn finds its applications in the following segments:
The EMR report also covers the regional markets like North America, Europe, the Asia Pacific, Latin America, and the Middle East and Africa.
The global corn market is being driven by the increasing applications of corn in the end-use industries. Corn has wide applications in the production of corn starch. The industries are rapidly growing, especially the corn starch industry. Corn starch has its applications in the production of food ingredients, papers, ethanol, and sweeteners, among others. It is also used in the production of animal feed. The growing market demand for all these products is providing an impetus to the overall corn market. The increasing demand for animal feed, as well as ethanol, has resulted in increased production of the crop. Corn is used in making biofuel because of the content of the starch present, and it can easily be converted into ethanol.
The rapidly rising demand for the product in the United States and China is mainly driven by the increasing use of the crop in the end-use industries. The United States is a significant confectionery market, which is propelling the growth of the corn market as corn starch is used in the production of sorbitol and sweeteners. The growing demand for sorbitol, which is an end-use segment, is supporting the growth of the corn market, as well. Sorbitol is abundantly used due to its low-calorie content among the health-conscious population. Sorbitol has wide applications in personal care products and pharmaceuticals. The corn market is also being driven by the easy availability and low manufacturing cost of the product. The favourable policies of the government, as well as the increasing FDI flows for both pharmaceuticals and personal care products, has aided the growth of the corn market, especially in the Asia Pacific region. India and China represent the major emerging markets for the product in the Asia Pacific.
