Agribusiness in the US

Large multinational companies are increasingly getting in on the agribusiness act. These corporations are encouraging vertical integration in the industry and are actively boosting the industry's profitability as a whole. During the five years to 2016, the Agribusiness industry has experienced increasing interest in biofuel, strong growth in the number of free-trade agreements signed by the federal government and a rise in the prevalence of genetically modified seeds. These trends are forecast to continue over the next five years.

The Agribusiness industry includes businesses that directly engage in or directly benefit from agricultural activities. Businesses in this industry may produce agricultural commodities, buy agricultural produce or supply goods and services to farms and the agriculture industry. This industry focuses on the food-supply chain up to, but not including, the point of retail sale.

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.
