Survey of By-products of Corn Industry in China Edition (1)

China is a large corn supplier and consumer worldwide, with its corn industry playing an important role in the agricultural industry nationwide. However, China’s corn starch and corn alcohol, the main application fields of corn, have met overcapacity in recent years. Thus, the Chinese government has endeavored to regulate the development of the domestic corn industry through a series of policies, some of which were adopted to restrict the overgrowth of corn starch, while others were employed to stimulate the development of corn deep processing and corn by-products, such as corn gluten meal and amino acids.

Corn cob is the corn rod without shelled corn, which is a by-product of corn that can’t be widely utilized in industrial production so far. Only 35% of the product is used in industrial processing in China. What’s the situation of supply and demand of corn cob in China? Is it already a sunset industry or another booming one in the future?

Corn gluten meal, together with corn oil and corn steep liquor, are the main by-products of corn starch. With its high protein content, it is widely used in the feed industry. However, corn starch is already in overcapacity and the Chinese government has released a series of policies to restrict the overgrowth of the product. Under such a situation, how is corn gluten meal affected? Will its price go out of control?

DDGS, a kind of corn alcohol by-product, is widely used in feed. Since 2009, a large amount of imported DDGS has been spreading out through the Chinese market. Affected by this, domestic DDGS producers have had to face more intense competition from the overseas market. To mitigate the pressure suffered by domestic producers, the Chinese government carried out an anti-dumping survey on the imported DDGS. In the report, CCM analyzed the current competition between home-made DDGS and its overseas counterpart. You can find answers to such questions as: Along with the execution of China’s anti-dumping survey, how will domestic DDGS producers break through the challenges from the overseas DDGS suppliers? Will there be a possibility for domestic producers to grab back the DDGS market?

In order to figure out China’s corn by-product market, CCM also briefly introduced other by-products of the corn industry such as corn oil and corn steep liquor. Through deep investigation and analysis, detailed information of China’s corn by-product industry has been unfolded as follows in the report,

  • Corn planting and related policies in China
  • Introduction to corn industrial chain
  • Current production and consumption of corn cob, corn gluten meal and DDGS in China, and forecast from 2014 to 2018;
  • Analysis on the domestic price of corn cob, corn gluten meal and DDGS during 2008-2013, and price forecast from 2014 to 2015;
  • Top producers of DDGS and corn gluten meal in China (2012);
  • Application pattern of corn cob, corn gluten meal and DDGS in China (2012)
