The global cassava industry report gives a comprehensive analysis of the industry including key segments, trends, drivers, restraints, the competitive landscape, and other essential market aspects. Cassava is rich in iron, folate, manganese, carbs, and calcium and is a reasonably inexpensive raw material with a high starch content compared to its properties and its international procurement market is driven by its increasing usage in end-use industries. Furthermore, its starch has various advantages, including a neutral taste, high purity, and excellent thickening. The key demand indicator in the industry report is the highest category spender by region—Asia Pacific.

Industry Definition and Segmentation

Cassava is a tropical plant with its roots, leaves, and stems utilised as different variety of foods. Numerous food crops' starchy roots are recognised as the highest energy source (carbohydrates) and can be processed into pellets, chips, flour, and starch. It is primarily consumed raw, with the remainder being processed into starch, flour, pellets, chips, and other items. Toxins are eliminated from the product during processing, increasing its robustness, reducing its weight, and increasing its overall worth. The global cassava industry report comprises segments based on product type (starch, chips, flour and ethanol obtained from cassava), end-use sector (food, feed, and industrial) and geographical (North America, Europe, the Asia Pacific, Latin America, and the Middle East, and Africa).

Asia Pacific, the United States and Africa Regions are Driving the Growth of the Industry

Globally, the largest producer of cassava is Nigeria contributing to approximately one-fifth of the world's production, followed by Thailand, Indonesia, Brazil, Ghana, Congo, among others. Furthermore, Asia Pacific region specifically China, Japan and Indonesia have the largest market importing huge volumes of end-use products such as flour, starch, chips, and pellets. China is also the world's largest importer of such goods whereas Asia is the world's biggest importer and exporter of the same. Thailand, Vietnam, the United States, Costa Rica, China, the Netherlands, Spain, Egypt, Honduras, and Indonesia are among the top cassava exporters globally.

On the other hand, factors like expansion of cassava production will need the market for the crop to fortify more. Most of farmers in countries like Nigeria face shortage of finances to buy planting materials and employ labour assisting them to perform production activities.

Best Procurement Practices

The global cassava industry report by Procurement Resource gives an in-depth analysis of the best buying practices followed by major global cassava products regions across the globe, such as engagement models, contract terms, and buyer and supplier negotiation levers, among others.

Category Management Studies

Cassava is a drought-tolerant crop that can be grown successfully on marginal soils and delivers high yields in locations where many other crops fail. It grows well between 30° north and south of the equator, at elevations between sea level and 2,000 m (7,000 ft), in tropical temperatures, with annual rainfalls ranging from 50 to 5,000 mm (2 to 200 in), and on poor soils with pH going from acidic to alkaline.

In some parts of Africa and South America, these are the prevalent conditions and hence, the areas are good for growing the crop. Also, cassava is a highly productive crop in terms of food calories generated per unit land area per day.

Substantial Demand for Food, Medicines, Adhesives, and Paper, Further Driving the Procurement of Millet

Cassava starch is a prominent ingredient in various culinary products due to its high carbohydrate content. Due to urbanisation, increased working population, and rising household incomes, the global food sector is currently multiplying, particularly in emerging economies such as India and China. This has increased demand for ready-to-eat food products, which has boosted the cassava starch industry's growth. The starch was previously primarily used in food applications; but, due to its widespread availability, it is also utilised in medicines, adhesives, and papers. The market is being propelled forward by growth in these end-use industries and is used for sizing, finishing, and printing in the textile industry because of its flexibility, resilience to abrasion, and ability to create a bond with the fibre. The crop starch is used in finishing to mask imperfections or defects and give the product a finished look. The textile sector expands as the world becomes more westernised, enhancing the cassava starch market.

The major regional markets are North America, Europe, the Asia Pacific, Latin America, and the Middle East and Africa, with the Asia Pacific dominating the overall industry share.
