Market Overview

The Ghana grain market is projected to register a CAGR of 4.5% during the forecast period (2021-2026). According to a recent study by food and agriculture investor Rabobank; the grain and the oilseeds market has felt the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic in terms of deglobalization of supply chains and declining biofuels demand to accelerate while increasing concerns about food security. In the COVID-19 pandemic; Ghana faced challenges in terms of wastage of previous grain stock due to disruption caused to supply chain, price hike of grains and cereals due to limited supply, delayed harvesting of seasonal crops due to labour shortage etc. The Ghana grain market caters mainly to domestic demands. The grain market mainly includes cereals, pulses, and oilseeds. Ghana is not a self-sufficient country when it comes to the cereal market, and various cereals are imported from other countries to satisfy domestic needs. According to FAO, maize is the most widely cultivated cereal, with a production of 2.3 million metric ton in 2018. Rice and sorghum are next on the list of the most cultivated crops in Ghana with the production of 769.0 thousand million metric tons and 316.0 thousand metric ton respectively. Beans and peas are the most widely cultivated pulses, while groundnut is the most cultivated oilseed. Maize production in Ghana witnessed a nominal CAGR of 2.8 %. As the trend suggests, the grain market in Ghana is expected to witness slow but steady growth over the forecast period.

According to FAO, the production of maize increased to 2.7 million metric tons in 2019 as compared to 1.7 million metric tons in 2016. An increase in the production of maize is due to the high demand for domestic consumption in Ghana where the per capita consumption accounts for 40 Kg/year ,recorded in 2017.
