Global Sunflower Seeds Market - Growth, Trends and Forecasts (2019 - 2024)

Purchase Report

Sunflower is the fourth most important oilseed crop in the world. Sunflower oil is a light edible oil with low trans-fat and is considered beneficial for cardiac patients. Due to its various health benefits, it is used for human consumption globally. The sunflower seed market (for cultivation purpose) forms a small part of the global sunflower seed commodity industry and accounts for only 2% of the market share.

Global Sunflower Seeds Market Dynamics

During 2015-16, the global sunflower production was 39.4 million metric tons and it is projected to reach 41.2 million metric tons in 2016-17. It has been noted that the expected rise in production is due to the use of improved seed varieties and various farming inputs. However, the cultivation area for the sunflower seed production is expected to remain the same as the previous year. The total demand for sunflower seeds is derived from human consumption of oil and animal feed consumption of oil cakes. The global trade of sunflower seed meal is forecasted to expand due to the tight supplies of rapeseed and soybean meals.

Global Sunflower Seeds Market Segmentation

Russia, Ukraine, the European Union and Argentina are among the largest sunflower seed producers in the world, together accounting for 70% of the global sunflower seed production. These countries are not only the largest producers but also the largest consumers of sunflower seeds. The markets in these countries have witnessed an exponential growth in the sunflower seed production during the past decade, due to the adoption of the high-quality hybrid seeds.

Sunflower seeds are crushed locally in the major producing countries. Globally, only 10% of the total sunflower seeds are exported for crushing. Sunflower oil accounts for 30% of the total edible oil exports in the world. India, Turkey, and the European Union are the major destinations for the sunflower oil and seed exports of Ukraine, Russia, the USA and Argentina. India is a net importer of edible oil and largely depends on imports of sunflower seeds. The export trade of sunflower seeds is limited due to the strong domestic demand in the major producing countries. The sunflower seed oil trade is forecasted to grow marginally during 2016-17.
