Agribusiness in the US
Over the five years to 2018, revenue for the Agribusiness industry is expected to decline due to a falling agricultural price index. Declining agricultural prices have a carry-through effect as they flow through the supply chain, slowing industry revenue growth. However, rising consumer preferences for premium-priced organic and natural products have prevented greater declines in industry revenue. Moving forward, the industry is expected to experience a slow-but-steady rebound as improved economic conditions enable downstream buyers to demand more agricultural products and services. Sustained demand for food from developing countries and continued support for biofuel production are anticipated to continue bolstering demand for industry products 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.
