Market Analysis

Introduction

Without modern agricultural techniques, current population levels could not be sustained and projected near-term population growth would create stresses that would destabilize the current global social and political order.  Relatively recent innovations in seeds, chemicals, and fertilizers have enabled agricultural producers to meet the ever-growing demands of a hungry world population. Even with the rapid increases, in agricultural productivity, however, challenges for the agriculture industry to supply the growing global economy with sufficient supplies of agricultural staples are greater now than ever before. A new green revolution similar to the one that took place during the latter part of the 20th century is taking place all over the world to meet the expected demand by the growing world population and its increased standard of living. 

Scope and Importance:

Economic growth and industrialization of a nation is inextricably linked to the continuous availability, access, diversity and modernization of its agriculture sector. Agriculture, in fact, plays a vital function in whole goals and endeavors to attain fiscal development. A lot of the present day’s developed economies initially struggled to make their agricultural sector stronger. The states at a priority basis supply monetary help to their farmers, researchers, and scientists with a plan to boost their agricultural inventions still further. Agricultural science is among one of the best career options for a study and because of the lack of information and proper guidance, peoples usually under-estimate this field. Each and the every requirements and need of creature including food, clothing and shelter are straightforwardly rewarded by agriculture. A continuous research work is involving in this field to provide the maximum necessities to an ever-increasing population of the world. Essentially, the entire agricultural land expansion might be taken place in developing countries of the world. Consequently, the importance of agriculture to society impinges on our quality of life, food, nutrition, clothing, and locality where peoples are living.

Global Market Segmentation:

These factors will continue to influence trends in demand over the next three decades. For example, world population will go on rising, but less rapidly, growing at an average of 1.1 percent a year up to 2030, compared with 1.7 percent a year over the past 30 years.

By 1997-99, 61 percent of the world's population were living in countries where average food consumption per person was above 2 700 kcal per day.

As a result, future demand for agricultural products is expected to slow further - to 1.6 percent a year for the period 1997-99 to 2015 and to 1.4 percent for 2015 to 2030. In developing countries, the slowdown will be more dramatic, from 3.7 percent for the past 30 years to an average 2 percent for the next 30.

Why in USA

Agriculture is a major industry in the United States, which is a net exporter of food. As of the 2007 census of agriculture, there were 2.2 million farms, covering an area of 922 million acres (3,730,000 km2), an average of 418 acres (1.69 km2) per farm.Although agricultural activity occurs in all states, it is particularly concentrated in the Great Plains, a vast expanse of flat, arable land in the center of the United States and in the region around the Great Lakes known as the Corn Belt.The United States was a leader in seed improvement i.e. hybridization and in expanding uses for crops from the work of George Washington Carver to the development of bio plastics and biofuels. The mechanization of farming, intensive farming, has been a major theme in U.S. history, including John Deere's steel plow, Cyrus McCormick's mechanical reaper, Eli Whitney's cotton gin to the widespread success of the Fordson tractor and the combine harvesters first made from them. Modern agriculture in the U.S. ranges from the common hobby farms, small-scale producers to large commercial farming covering thousands of acres of cropland or rangeland.
