Lack of awareness in developing countries, fluctuating prices of grains and Ill-effects of excess consumption are the major restraints for the growth of this market.

“Dried Distillers’ Grains with Solubles (DDGS) segment estimated to lead the market with the largest share in from 2018.”
The DDGS segment is estimated to dominate the market for distillers’ grains in 2018. It is also projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. Properties such as high protein content, energy, and highly digestible phosphorus content in DDGS are responsible for its growing use as a partial replacement for some more expensive traditional animal feed such as corn and soybean meal.

“The corn segment is projected to be the fastest-growing source of distillers’ grains from 2018 to 2023.”
The distillers’ grains market, by source, is estimated to be dominated by the corn segment in 2018. The corn segment is mainly driven by the fact that this is the key grain used in ethanol production, resulting in an increasing supply of corn-based distillers’ grains, as a by-product. Further, the high availability of phosphorus content in corn-based distillers’ grains provides high energy and protein to livestock, and it is an economical alternative to other feed ingredients.

“North America set to lead the distillers’ grains market with the largest share in 2018.”
The North American market is estimated to be the largest in 2018. The market in North America is majorly driven by the high production and consumption of distillers’ grains in the US market. Further growth can be attributed to the growing trade of distillers’ grains from the US to Canada and Mexico, due to North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). This agreement allows duty-free access to all products promoted by the United States Grains Council (USGC), which include distillers’ grains. The Asia Pacific market is projected to grow at the highest CAGR from 2018 to 2023. The increase in demand for animal-based products; growth of the regional population; the rise in disposable incomes; the rise in urbanization, especially in China, India, and Japan; and continuous modernization in the feed industry drive the distillers’ grains market in Asia Pacific.
