Industry Definition and Segmentation

Soybean is also known as soya beans is an annual legume and an edible seed of the pea family (Fabaceae). Its scientific name is Glycine max. Soybeans are the most economically important bean in the world, supplying plant protein for millions of people plus ingredients for a lot of chemical products. It is the most important source of protein for livestock feed, which, in return, provides animal protein for human consumption. They consist of considerable quantities of phytic acid, B vitamins, and dietary minerals. Soy vegetable oil, extensively used in food and industrial applications, is a substantial soybean processing product. Furthermore, it is believed to be an almost-perfect dairy replacement with products like soy curd, tempeh, tofu, and soy milk. The soybean market industry report comprises segments based on end-use products and application. By application, the market is divided into animal feed, aquafeed, biofuel, food and beverages, personal care, dietary supplements, pharmaceuticals, lubricants, industrial solvents, adhesives, building materials among others. End-use segments are divided into whole soybean, fermented soybean, non-fermented soy food, meal, and oil. Geographically, the important segments in the international soybean market are North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and the Middle East and Africa.

North America – the United States, Latin America, and Asia Pacific – India and China Regions are Driving the Growth of the Industry

The main factors that are driving the growth of the global soybean industry are increasing spending power of the people, rising population and urbanisation, growing demand from the crushing industry, increasing health and wellness awareness owing to the higher standard of living, high demand for dairy substitutes, and growth in the automobiles and construction sectors. People across the globe have become more health-conscious which is leading them to shift to healthier cooking oil alternatives like soybean oil, especially in developed nations, such as the United States. Additionally, the growth in the adoption of vegetarianism in the western regions of the world due to the acceptance of plant-rich proteins in the diet is another important driver for the growth of the market. Soybean oil-producing companies are topping up their output so that they can distribute their products at reasonable prices.

Because of climate alterations, the global soybean market faces grain price fluctuations. Ambiguity arises due to seasonal and climatic changes that impact the crops because of the uneven rainfall patterns which influence its production.

Best Procurement Practices

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

Category Management Studies

One of the most important pulse crops supplying a great amount of protein and oil requirements globally is soybean. Management of the nutrient level of the soil is a key aspect of achieving a greater output of crops. Efficient management of nutrients also supports the crop to survive with various kinds of biotic and abiotic stress. For the soybean crop, a total of fifteen nutrients are required consisting of macronutrients such as nitrogen, phosphorous, potassium, calcium, magnesium, and sulphur, which are comparatively needed in large quantities, and nine micronutrients which comprise iron, boron, zinc, cobalt, copper, manganese, molybdenum, nickel, and chlorine. With the help of soil incorporation or foliar spray of commercially available fertilizers, such nutrients are supplied to the soybean plants. Numerous collaborative aspects are accountable for the excellent harvest of the soybean crop. Factors like selecting the variety wisely, engaging in superior agronomic practices, and coping with the production restrictions strategically can enhance its production that can help meet the increasing demand for soybean crops. The crops are further processed into oil by following steps like preparation and dehulling, extraction, desolventizing, oil refining, and processing.

High Nutrition Value and Increasing Popularity of Vegan Lifestyle is Further Driving the Procurement of Soybean

The adaptability of edible forms and the wholesome value of soybean act as growth drivers for the global soybean market. As consumers shift toward diet-conscious regimens, soybean offers a perfect substitute for meat, dairy, and poultry-intensive diets. The demand for its side-products such as oil cake, soybean meal, and other related items have soared over the past few years. Because of its high nutritive value, soybean by-products have led to its popularity amongst consumers.
