DUBLIN, September 18, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --
The "Global Oats Market - Growth, Trends and Forecasts 2017 - 2022" report has been added to Research and Markets' offering.
The top ten oats producing countries are Russia, Canada, Poland, Finland, Australia, United States, Spain, United Kingdom, Sweden, and Germany. The global production of oats in 2013 was 20.73 million metric tons. The output by the five major producers accounted for 51% of the global output. The United States, Germany and Mexico are the major consumers and importers of oats globally; the United States accounts for more than half of the market demand.
Nevertheless, in 2014-15, the countries of European Union emerged as the major consumers of oats, globally. Russia is the largest producer of the crop, though it supplies only for its domestic consumption. Canada and Finland are the main exporters with a combined share of 70%. However, countries like Czech Republic and Sweden have emerged as the fastest growing exporters during the last five years. In the holistic trade scenario, Canada dominates the global market and the United States is the major trade partner for Canadian oats.
The health benefits from oats and oat products have increased the demand for oats on health and wellness grounds. The European Union has approved several health claims about oats, which led to an increasing demand in the region. As per Statistics Canada (STC), the total area under oats cultivation in Canada is expected to decline by 10.9% from the 2015 level of 3.337 million acres. The oats cultivating area in the United States is slated to decline by 5% on low returns. Imports to Japan saw a surge of 14% in 2015, while remaining in broader downtrend. In case of imports, both raw oats and oat products are experiencing a static growth in the United States market. Finland significantly strengthened its position in the global trade over the last five years. In the price front, the increase of prices in 2008 apparently improved the producers margin, which is now in a declining phase.
Global oats yields have been growing continuously despite the decline in breeding activities in North America and the European region. Privately-financed breeding activities have been limited, while domestic breeding activities turned out economically sound in the European countries. Additionally, in many producing countries, the use of certified oat seeds is limited. Strong environmental variation affects the breeding of higher and more stable oat grain. The issues related to finance and higher number of field trials have been deterring the efforts of oats seed breeding. With the application of innovative seed breeding techniques, the oats seed industry can be developed further in comparison to other arable crops.
