Sunflower Market - Segmented by Geography- Growth, Trends, and Forecast (2018 - 2023)

The Global Sunflower Market was valued at USD 49.9 million in 2016 and is expected to register a CAGR of 4.3% during the forecast period (2018 - 2023). In 2017, China is one of the largest producer and exporter of sunflower seeds globally. France is the largest consumer and importer of sunflower seeds.

Sunflower seeds are fruits of the sunflower plant, which are produced on a mass-scale in European Union countries. Edible oils are prepared from sunflower seeds that are used in various food products. Sunflower seed oil production makes up around 8% of the total global vegetable oil production. The sunflower oil market, globally, is growing rapidly owing to rising health consciousness among Indian consumers. Due to negative effects on health coming from the adoption of modern lifestyle, the consumers now prefer light edible oils in order to remain healthy. As a result, share of sunflower oil in total edible oil consumption in the country is rising year on year 

One of the Largest Producer and Exporter -China
The Chinese sunflower seed production was recorded at 2,587,422 metric ton in 2016. Bayannur, a city in the Inner Mongolia region is the largest producer of sunflower seeds in China. Xing Yi Seeds and Dalian East Dawn Agricultural products Co. Ltd are two of the major producers of sunflower seeds in China. The production of sunflower seeds was affected in 2016, as the price for sunflower seeds in the domestic market was unstable. The instability was mostly due to trade liberalization and the development of sunflower seed hybrids in the Inner Mongolia region.

Sunflower seed exports from China was 295,991 metric ton in 2016. Iran, Egypt, Iraq, Vietnam, and Myanmar were the top five importers of Chinese sunflower seed in 2016. Iran and Egypt accounted for around 55% of the total sunflower seed exports by China in 2016.

Growing Health Consciousness
The market is driven by higher disposable incomes and increased health consciousness, edible oil consumers in India are increasingly turning towards sunflower oil, which has witnessed an increase in consumption by about five-fold rise over the past 15 years. Solvent Extractors’ Association of India (SEA) noted a steady rise in sunflower oil imports, from 973,000 metric ton in 2012-13 to 1,516,000 metric ton in 2015-16. There are also rising opportunities in the snacks industry. Rising number of supermarkets and retail stores are rapidly increasing the need for several flavors of sunflower seeds, globally. Sesame and sunflower seeds, as well as quinoa are some of the ingredients on trend.

Increase In Pest-parasite Weed Sunflower Broomrape
According to a March 16, 2017 report from the Foreign Agricultural Service (FAS) of the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), Russia’s Ministry of Agriculture and provincial authorities are focused on cutting back on the area planted to sunflower seed. The reason behind this is parasite weed sunflower broomrape, Orobanche cumanaache sps., also called “zarazikha.” According to the FAS, zarazikha affects the root of the sunflower seed plant and kills the plant, and the parasite weed has spread in Russia and may kill up to 100% of the crop in the field.
