Increasing International Trade

The US is the largest producer of maize, accounting for 36.3% of the total global production. Some other significant producers of maize include China, Brazil, Argentina, and India. Argentina is the largest exporter of maize, exporting a volume of 25.4 million metric ton of maize worth USD 4.2 million in the year 2016. Argentina exports maize mainly to Vietnam, Algeria, Egypt, and Malaysia. The global maize importing countries include Japan, Mexico, and Egypt.        

Genetically Modified (GM) Seeds

Genetically modified seeds in maize have helped improve the yield and productivity to a great extent, benefiting many countries by meeting their food security issues. These genetically customized and technologically developed crops across the globe have improved the seed market growth. However, the rising concerns of consumers toward genetically modified maize have resulted in the demand for non-GM crop.  

North America to Dominate the Global Maize Market

Globally, among all regions, North America is expected to be the largest market for maize, followed by Asia-Pacific, over the forecast period owing to the high production of maize crop and its consumption as animal feed. Globally, the US is the largest producer of maize, followed by China, and it is expected to contribute the maximum revenue in the near future. However, Asia-Pacific is anticipated to witness a rapid growth over the forecast period owing to the increasing demand for maize as animal feed in the region.
