Pulses and Grains, Cereals

Pulses and Grains, CerealsAgricultural production is the result of a combination of two factors: financing and weather. In crop year 2015/2016, a total of approximately 2.48 billion metric tons of grain were produced worldwide –some 231 million more than in 2008-2009. After some strong advances of recent years, growth in world total grains (wheat and coarse grains) production is expected to be more modest. Given a continued rise in consumption, grains stocks are projected to retreat, but remain comfortable. Corn is leading the grains segment by a wide margin, followed by rice, wheat and barley. Global rice output is seen increasing to successive highs on gains in Asia’s leading producers, although average annual growth is expected to be slower than in recent years owing to limited potential for expanded plantings. Oilseeds production is expected to increase as key growers boost plantings in response to rising consumption and trade.

Key trends and sales drivers include:

  • Evolving technology in agriculture as farmers seek new ways to increase yield and reduce costs
  • Gluten free options - widely considered to be the future of bakery as consumers become ever more aware of the associated health benefits
  • Cereal bars complementing the ‘on-the-go’ snack movement
  • ‘Trendy’ grains such as quinoa, buckwheat and spirulina that suit paleo and other specialist diets
  • Pulses, particularly lentils and chickpeas that satisfy high-protein, high-fiber, and gluten-free diets and act as money-saving filler for lower income households
