The latest report by IMARC Group titled, “Parboiled and White Rice Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2017-2022”, provides a comprehensive analysis of the global parboiled and white rice market. Parboiled rice, also known as converted rice, is a variety of rice which is partially boiled in the husk. This process helps in increasing the nutritional value of the rice along with improving its texture, due to which they are considered better than the other varieties of rice. White rice, on the other hand, is processed ordinarily, that is, by removing the bran, husk and the germ which changes the texture and appearance of the rice. According to the report, the global consumption of parboiled rice reached a volume around 200 Million Tons in 2016, growing at a CAGR of 2% during 2009-2016. On the other hand, the global consumption of white rice in 2016 reached 246.3 Million Tons with consumption levels declining at a CAGR of 0.4% during 2009-2016.
The market for parboiled rice is driven by the health benefits that it offers. Parboiled rice is a rich source of carbohydrates, vitamins, minerals and several other essential dietary nutrients, due to which it helps in preventing several diseases. An adequate consumption of parboiled rice can help in maintaining sugar levels, preventing cardiovascular diseases, along with building overall immunity of the body. Apart from the health benefits, parboiled rice is gaining popularity among the consumers as it is easy to digest and can be prevented against pest spoilage as the grain is hardened during processing. Despite the fact that white rice has less nutritional value, it assists muscle growth, treats gastrointestinal distress and prevents kidney problems. Moreover, since it is gluten free, it is a good dietary option for those who are gluten intolerant. The popularity of white rice is also fostered by its growing consumption in the Asian region, where it is used as a staple food. Some of the factors which are driving the overall sales of rice are changing dietary habits, increasing health awareness among the consumers and improving standards of living.
