Cornmeal Market in the US to grow at a CAGR of 1.81% during the period 2016-2020.

About Cornmeal

The market demand for cornmeal products is attributed to the growing demand for corn-based snacks including tortilla chips, corn chips, taco shells, and a wide variety of other popular Mexican foods. Snack manufacturers in the US utilize whole cornmeal and corn flour for making snacks as the high starch content of both cornmeal as well as corn flour helps in giving a high puff in the preparation of processed/extruded snack products where corn flavor is required. The American household is now shrinking and cooking at home has decreased compared to previous years, which in turn is resulting in rising consumer preference for snack products. This shift is now leading to the increasing demand for single-portion, portable as well as healthy snack products. Thus, corn-based snacks are expected to see high growth during the forecast period attributed to the myriad health benefits of corn. In addition, the demand for gluten-free snacks is rising in the US owing to the increase in the number of people with gluten sensitivity. In 2015, around 1,080 new snack products were launched in the US with gluten-free claim.

Technavios analysts forecast the Cornmeal Market in US to grow at a CAGR of 1.81% during the period 2016-2020.
