This market research study identifies Archer Daniels Midland, Bunge, Cargill, Gruma, and Tate & Lyle as the leading players in the global cornmeal market. A comprehensive analysis of this market is also presented by end-user (retail, industrial, and food services), by product (brewery grits, RTE cornmeal, corn flour, corn grits, whole grains, wheat flour and mixes, and other cornmeal products), and by geography (the Americas, APAC, Europe, and MEA).

Overview of the global cornmeal market

According to the Technavio’s analysts, the global cornmeal market is anticipated to grow at a steady rate and will post a CAGR of close to 2% during the forecast period. The growing popularity of craft beer will drive the growth prospects for the global cornmeal market for the next four years. With the updated definition of the craft beer to include the limited use of adjuncts such as corn or rice in the brewing process, the use of corn grits in the brewery as craft beer is also increasing. Also, craft breweries are seeking opportunities to come up with new products to increase their presence in the market. Furthermore, it has been observed that the number of breweries is also increasing across the globe, which, in turn, will drive the growth rate of global cornmeal market. For instance, the number of a craft brewery in the US is increased by 18.1% in 2015 compared with 2014.

In terms of geography, the Americas accounted for the majority market share during 2016 and will continue to dominate the market during the forecasted period. According to the industry research report, the demand for cornmeal products in the Americas is growing due to the rising demand for corn snacks including corn chips, tortilla chips, taco shells, and a wide variety of other popular Mexican foods. Also, the addition of whole cornmeal and corn flour in the making of snacks gives a high puff in the preparation of processed or extruded snack products due to the presence of high starch content in it.

Competitive landscape and key vendors

The global cornmeal market is highly competitive and diversified due to the presence of a large number of regional and international vendors across the globe. Also, these vendors increasingly take into consideration the region's retail landscape, culture, dynamics, and consumer preferences before launching any new product in the market.
