From 2007 to 2016, the global cereal grains market showed an upward trend, expanding by X%, to X tonnes in 2016. According to IndexBox estimates, over the last nine years the cereal grain market grew with a CAGR of +X%. Maize accounted for the highest share (X% in 2016) of global cereal grains consumption, followed by wheat (X%), rice (X%), barley (X%), sorghum (X%), millet, oats and triticale (about X% each).

In value terms, the market kept at the same level of 2015 and stood at $X in 2016. From 2007 to 2016, the market value was subject to significant fluctuations against changes in prices, crop yield and global cereal grains reserves. 

China Ranks First in Global Cereal Grains Consumption 

The countries with the highest consumption were China (X% based on tonnes), the U.S. (X%), India (X%), Brazil (X%), Indonesia and Russia (X% each), together comprising almost X% of global consumption. The highest annual rates of growth with regard to cereal grains consumption from 2007 to 2016 were recorded in Brazil (+X%) and China (+X%). 

Amongst the leading consuming countries, high levels of per capita consumption were recorded in the U.S. (X kg/year), Brazil (X kg/year) and Russia (X kg/year), while the global average per capita consumption of cereal grains was estimated at X kg/year in 2016. 

In the Medium Term, the Cereal Grains Market Is Set to Continue Modest Growth  

It is expected that global cereal grains consumption will grow to X tonnes by 2025. In the medium term, consumption of cereal grains will grow at a slow rate (about +X% per year), mainly due to increased demand for cereal grains in Asian and African countries.

By 2025, maize consumption will increase to X billion tons. It is expected that maize for feed consumption will grow due to the rapid livestock growth in developing countries. Maize for human consumption will also grow mainly in developing countries, especially on the African continent. According to expectations, the consumption of wheat will increase to X tonnes. Wheat will be mostly used for human consumption. It is expected that the use of wheat for feed will increase primarily in Asian countries: China, Pakistan and Vietnam. The expected share of using wheat for biofuel production will be about X% of world wheat consumption in 2025. Rice for human consumption remains the main way of consuming rice, as this product is a staple food in most Asian countries and is also popular in Africa, Latin America, and the Caribbean. It is expected that the total consumption of rice will rise to X tonnes by 2025 against the backdrop of Asian and African population growth.

In 2016, Cereal Grains Production Increased in Terms of Volume, but Remained Flat in Value Terms

Cereal grains production reached X in 2016, with a positive dynamic being recorded over the last nine years. Maize accounted for the highest share (X% in 2016) of global cereal grains manufacturing, followed by wheat (X%) and rice (X%).

The cereal grains production value amounted to $X in 2016. From 2007 to 2016, the production of cereal grains showed a mixed pattern. Due to the fall seen in exporter prices, cereal grains production in value terms remained stable in 2016, against the growth in output figures over the last year. 

All Key Cereal Grains Producers Increased Their Production Volume 

The output of the five major producers of cereal grains, namely China (X tonnes), the U.S. (X tonnes), India (X tonnes), Brazil (X tonnes) and Russia (X tonnes) represented about X% of global cereal grains output. All main producer countries showed upward trends in cereal grains output: Brazil (+X% per year), Russia (+X% per year), China (+X% per year), the U.S. (+X% per year) and India (+X% per year).

The U.S. Was the Largest Exporter of Cereal Grains
