Sunflower Seeds Market: Opportunities

Resurging interest in farming and food production among people during COVID-19 to provide lucrative opportunity for the market growth

A severe economic slowdown and considerable disruptions in food supply networks have been brought on by the coronavirus pandemic. The typical flow of associated services and goods has also been impeded by illnesses and quarantine restrictions. To make ends meet during the epidemic, many farmers have increased their focus on crop production in recent months, which has led to an increase in the output of sunflower seeds. For instance, Wisconsin farmer Scott Thompson stated his intention to raise over 2 million sunflowers on 22 acres spread across more than 15 fields in 2020. The penetration of the sunflower seed market should increase in the upcoming years as a result of initiatives like these. As a result, the manufacturer can reclaim some of the market shares for sunflower seeds due to the increased extraction of sunflower seeds for the manufacturing of oils.

Sunflower Seeds Market: Regional Analysis

Europe is expected to dominate the market during the forecast period

Europe is expected to dominate the global sunflower seed market during the forecast period owing to the increasing production of the sunflower which is utilized for food, feed, fuel, and industrial purpose in the region. In 2020, 19.3 million hectares of sunflowers will be farmed in Europe for use as food, feed, fuel, and industrial purposes, according to the FAO. About 80% of the region's sunflower seed production is used for household consumption, with the remaining 20% going toward creating bird feed and confections and 90% going into crushing. In 2020–2021, 537 thousand metric tons of sunflower seeds were produced in Europe, while 2916 thousand metric tons were used domestically, according to the USDA. Plantings of sunflowers have increased recently in nations including Italy, Portugal, Germany, Austria, Croatia, and the Czech Republic. Because of lower crush and availability, demand for sunflower meals is projected to be lower than usual. However, demand is constant because of anticipated higher competition vs rapeseed meals. As a result of increased demand for sunflower oil and other sunflower-based processed goods, the market is expected to rise at a healthy rate over the forecast period.

Besides, North America is expected to hold a significant market share over the forecast period because sunflower seeds are used in a variety of culinary dishes due to their high nutritional value. The United States and Canada are the two countries that generate the most sunflower seeds in North America. Sunflower seeds are very popular in these countries due to their wide range of applications in the food and beverage industries.
