Corn-Wet Milling Market Dynamics

Manufacturers to Target Increased Corn Sourcing to Accommodate Corn-Wet Milling Capacity Expansions

Leading stakeholders in the corn-wet milling market are actively engaged in the expansion of corn-wet milling facilities owing to the rising demand for corn products across the globe. With the surging demand for corn-related products, food manufacturers engaged in corn-wet milling landscape have increased the sourcing of corn to meet the increased demand. Also, the positive forecast of the grain supply including corn and favorable trade activities also complement a steady corn supply, thereby accommodating increasing demand for corn-based and modified starch products leading to corn-wet milling market growth.

Corn-Wet Milling Market Players Seek Energy Star Business Model for Cost Savings

Within the different food industry verticals, corn-wet milling is considered the most energy-intensive industry while accounting for about 15% of the entire food industry energy requirement. Approximately US$ 20 to 30 million are spent annually on energy in a typical corn-wet milling plant in the United States. This energy cost ultimately adds to the overall production cost of modified starch products. In a bid to increase the predictable earnings by reducing the energy costs, stakeholders are engaged in seeking energy star business models. Such business planning is also helpful during the period of high energy-price volatility. There are several research programs related to water and energy management in the field of corn-wet milling process are underway to develop a cost, energy as well as water saving process without compromising on yield and quality.

Rising Application in End-Use Industries to Fuel the Corn-Wet Milling Market Growth

Demand for corn-based products ranging from corn syrup to animal feed to ethanol has increased significantly across the globe. The sweetener category is the highly sought-after variant owing to its natural origin. Consumption of ethanol is also increasing against the backdrop of increased preference for motor fuels. Also, demand for corn products that are rich in amino acids, digestible fibers, protein and other important nutrients is increasing significantly in the food and beverage industry. A significant surge in the demand for corn products in multiple end-use verticals is set to boost the growth of corn-wet milling market in the coming years.
