Research and Markets: 2012 Corn, Wheat & Soybean Wholesaling in the US Report – Biofueled: Demand for Renewable Fuel will Spur Growth

Biofueled: Demand for renewable fuel will spur growth, but wholesale bypass will hurt profitability

Corn, Wheat & Soybean Wholesaling in the US

Government subsidies for ethanol production and increasing biofuel mandates are keeping corn, wheat and soybean wholesalers busy. Demand for corn and soybeans, key components in ethanol manufacturing, skyrocketed in response to the Energy Policy Act of 2005. As production of these products increased, so did revenue for wholesalers. Though the demand surge is waning, wholesalers are able to stay afloat by being competitive in the international market.

Operators within this industry distribute grains, dry beans, soybeans and other inedible beans. The US Corn, Wheat and Soybean Wholesaling industry buys various crops of grains and beans from farmers and then distributes these products to a range of food and beverage processors.

This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
