Market Overview

The rice milling market is expected to register a CAGR of 2.5% during the forecast period (2022-2027).

During the COVID-19 outbreak, the sector saw a sharp dip in the business. The dealership network was the most affected due to supply chain disruption. Additionally, manufacturing units were not 100% active. Due to travel restrictions, the production of goods got delayed as supply was interrupted, resulting in a sharp decrease in machinery sales during the pandemic.​The demand for rice is expanding with the rising global population, which led to many rice processing plants opening new rice mills and boosting the market’s growth. Buhler Group, Fowler Westrup, MillTECH Machinery Private Ltd, Savco Sales Pvt. Ltd, and Satake are some of the prominent players with their distribution and manufacturing facilities worldwide.

Scope of the Report

Milling is a step that happens during the post-production of rice. The purpose of rice mill machinery is to remove the impurities from rice by removing husk and bran layers. The rice milling machinery market is segmented by mechanism, operations, and geography. The report offers the market size and forecasts in terms of volume in metric ton and value in USD thousand for all the above segments.

Key Market Trends

Increasing Area Under Paddy Cultivation

According to a report published by the USDA, paddy is a staple crop for more than half of the global population. The area under paddy cultivation increased from 161.7 million ha in 2019 to 164.1 million ha in 2020. High prices, new techniques to reduce the greenhouse gas emissions from the paddy field, and new varieties developed for paddy cultivation with fewer water requirements are the few major reasons for the increase in the area under paddy cultivation. This factor also provides an opportunity for many players to start rice mills and boost the rice milling machinery market.
