Corn, Wheat & Soybean Wholesaling in the US

The Corn, Wheat and Soybean Wholesaling industry is historically volatile, and the five years to 2016 have proven no different. The rise and fall of crop prices have affected revenue and profit. In the coming years, as crops gain more prominence for nonfood uses, the industry will get a moderate boost.

Operators in this industry purchase and distribute grains like corn, rice, wheat, dry beans, soybeans and other inedible beans. They distribute these products to food processors, industrial manufacturers, animal feed producers, exporters and other buyers. The industry includes players that operate grain elevators for bulk wholesale, but excludes players that operate grain elevator establishments for storage. Wholesalers of field and garden seeds are also excluded from this industry.

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.
