Analyst Review

Based on the insights of the top CXOs, the precooked corn flour market is expected to witness a significant increase in demand in the North America, Latin America, and Asia-Pacific region in the upcoming years, owing to the rising population, increasing awareness regarding the gluten-free precooked corn flour, growing food processing and food service industries, and rising number of restaurants and hotels in the region. Moreover, the nations like U.S., Brazil, Argentina, and India are among the top producers of corn/maize in the globe that ensures sufficient supply of raw materials to the manufacturers of precooked corn flour. These nations approximately accounts for around 68% to 70% of the global corn exports.

However, the ongoing tensions between Russia and Ukraine, may lead to a significant rise in the prices of corn. Ukraine accounts for around 12.4% of the global corn exports as it is a leading producer of corn in Europe. The Russian invasion of Ukraine has destroyed the corn production and exports significantly that may result in shortage of corn supply and a significant increase in the prices of corn in Europe in the upcoming years. Therefore, the shortages of supply of corn in Europe and rising pressure on the food supply chain is expected to have a negative impact on the precooked corn flour market in Europe.
