Need a report that reflects how COVID-19 has impacted this market and its growth?
The quinoa seeds market is projected to register a CAGR of 5.4% during the forecast period (2022-2027).
The COVID-19 outbreak has affected the quinoa seeds market in three ways, i.e., by directly affecting production and demand in the domestic and international markets, by disrupting the supply chain and trade movements in terms of export-import, and by its financial impact on firms and markets operating in the segment. However, the quinoa seeds market is quickly reaching its pre-COVID levels. A good growth rate is anticipated over the forecast period, driven by the economic revival in most developing nations.
Quinoa seeds are gaining attention from health-conscious consumers worldwide due to their nutritional value, gluten-free nature, and potential as a functional food ingredient. The grain is very similar to rice and can be cooked and used in the same way. Currently, the seed is used as healthy food and a tasty alternative to rice. However, the limited production of quinoa subsequently limits the growth of the market.
Quinoa is particularly considered a healthy superfood, and increasing awareness regarding its nutritional properties and health benefits led to higher demand in Europe and North America.
South America is the leading producer of quinoa seeds, with Peru and Bolivia being the largest producers globally. It is consumed as a staple food in South America. Most of the quinoa production occurs in Southern Peru and Northern Bolivia. Its consumption is expected to increase in Brazil as the number of vegan consumers in the region opting for non-animal product-based food has been increasing over the recent years. This factor is anticipated to drive the demand for healthier cereals comprised of brown rice, quinoa, amaranth, etc.
Scope of the Report
