Key Takeaways of the Global Corn Gluten Feed Market

Among product type, the wet corn gluten feed segment is expected to experience significant growth opportunities over the forecast period. Wet corn gluten feed is produced through the wet-milling process. The wet-milling process is designed to extract maximum output from each component of the corn kernel. The process involves soaking the corn kernels in large tanks called steep tanks in a dilute aqueous sulfur dioxide solution, followed by removing the germs, which is further processed to remove the high-value corn oil. The germ feed  remaining after the oil extraction is used for animal feed. Furthermore, the remaining kernel components are screened to remove the fiber and it is combined with the evaporated, concentrated, and dried steep liquor, among other co-product streams to produce corn gluten feed.

  • New product launches, mergers and acquisitions, strategic partnership expansion, and research and development activities in the corn gluten feed market are the key strategies adopted by the market players in the global corn gluten feed market. For instance, in Indonesia, corn consumption for animal feed in the first five months of 2020 declined to 18% compared to the same period in the previous year in Indonesia due to the COVID-19 pandemic, as stated by General Chairman of the Indonesian Feed Producers Association. This factor negatively affected the growth of the corn gluten feed market in 2020. The prices of corn gluten feed were affected due to the pandemic owing to the declining demand for corn in livestock feeds in 2020.
