Driver: Production of high-quality grains through effective storage and efficient post-harvest management to drive market growth

A majority of the countries, including the US, Canada, Mexico, China, India, Germany, and the UK, which significantly export agricultural produce in the international markets, are focusing on maintaining the quality of their grains for a longer period of time. Their use is higher in the developed regions, as the farmers in these regions cultivate large-scale farmlands and store high quantities of crops for a longer period of time. In addition, due to the increased prevalence of farmers that can invest in set-up silos, the growth of the market is high in the region. The European region consists of many strong grain silo manufacturers. The key players in the silos market, such as Rostfrei Steels, Silos Cordoba, PRADO Silos, and Symaga, are now focusing on developing silos that meet the needs of farmers in different geographies.

Opportunity: Rapid advancements and developments in attributes and technological advancements of silos to drive the market growth

The application of grain silos to store grains instead of warehouses provides various advantages, particularly in terms of using the land space. The silos can be manufactured to fit the available land area, and are available in both vertical and horizontal structures to fit the needs of farmers. It is easier to maintain the optimum storage conditions for grains by controlling the temperature, which, if not done appropriately in long-term storage facilities, can result in economic losses. They are increasingly equipped with mechanics that help in carrying out post-harvest processes in farms, such as threshing, cleaning, and disinfecting. With proper maintenance, the grains stored inside silos can be stored for decades. Silos also enable the user to store different grains separately in order to preserve each of them optimally.

By commodity type, maize segment is projected to dominate the market.

Maize is an important crop in various developed and developing countries. It is used as livestock feed and processed into various food and industrial products, such as starch, sweeteners, corn oil, beverage & industrial alcohol, and fuel ethanol. The major feed grains consumed in the US are corn, sorghum, barley, and oats. According to the USDA, in the US, corn is a major feed grain, accounting for more than 95% of the total feed grain production and use. It is used as a key energy ingredient in the livestock feed.

North America to be the largest market for grain silos and storage system during the forecast period.

The on- and off-farm grain storage capacity has reached nearly 20% in the last few years, according to the US Department of Agriculture, with some of the major gains of more than 30% in North and South Dakota in North America, as farmers had switched to corn, which yields nearly twice as many bushels per acre than the area’s traditional wheat crop. Thus, firms, such as CTB, which is a subsidiary of Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway Inc. (US), are developing advanced metal grain storage silos that are used across North America.
