Global Barley Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

Barley is a type of cereal grain that is most commonly used to make malt for beer. It can also be ground into flour and used in baking. Barley is an important source of dietary fiber, selenium, and magnesium.

Quick Pearl Barley:

Quick pearl barley (QPB) is a cultivar of the hulless wheat-barley hybrid. It was developed by cross- breeding winter wheat and barley in the early 1960s at a plant science research center of The International Institute for Advanced Agriculture Skill Development (IAASD) based in India. QPB has been widely used as an alternative to conventional spring and summer wheats having higher gluten content, which makes it ideal for making beers with lower alcohol content.

Pearl Barley:

Pearl barley is a type of barley that has been specially cultivated to produce pearls. The kernels of pearl barley are much larger than regular kernel and they contain more starch, protein, fiber and less gluten. This makes the product very popular among people who have gluten intolerance or celiac disease.

Application Insights:

The animal feed industry was the largest segment in 2016 and accounted for a market share of more than 70% in 2017. The growth can be attributed to the growing demand for barley as a food supplement for dairy cows. Barley is rich in proteins, vitamins, minerals and fibers which makes it an ideal food supplement for animals. Moreover, increasing awareness among farmers about providing better quality diet to their livestock is expected to drive the product demand over next few years.

Food & beverage industry emerged as another significant application segment with a volume share of 13% in 2017 owing to rising consumption of malted barley beverages such as beer and malt liquor among other alcoholic drinks like wine coolers and cocktails that use this product ingredient.

Regional Analysis:

Asia Pacific dominated the global barley market in 2017 and is expected to continue its dominance over the forecast period. The region accounts for approximately 60% of global population, 50% of global agriculture area, 40% of world GDP and 80% of world trade. It is also one of the most important manufacturing regions in terms of agricultural products with China being at the forefront.

The Asia Pacific economy has been witnessing strong growth on account rising disposable income coupled with increasing urbanization and industrialization across countries such as India, Japan, Indonesia among others are expected to drive demand for food grains including barley over next eight years.

Europe accounted for a significant share in terms from volume-based consumption owing to high animal feed production along with growing processed food industry especially along Germany Italy France U K among other western European countries which will have a positive impact on market growth during forecast period.
