Market Overview

The Saudi Arabia Alfalfa Market is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 5.6% during the forecast period (2020-2025). Saudi Arabia imports are projected to increase at a rapid rate, due to the country’s policy of banning forage crop production in 2019, thereby, leading it to rely solely on imports to satisfy the domestic alfalfa demand. The major factors influencing the alfalfa market include the rising demand for quality hay for livestock, dairy products, cattle population, prices of alfalfa hay, and price trends in alternative feed and forage.

Scope of the Report

Alfalfa, popularly known as lucerne, is cultivated as an important forage crop in many countries around the world. Furthermore, to eliminate any ‘double-count’ error in the market estimations, bulk buyers that procure alfalfa for retail sale, after value-addition, are not considered as part of the alfalfa market. The report defines the alfalfa as a commodity, in terms of end users.
