Global Parboiled and White Rice Market to Reach 560.2 Million Tons by 2032, Facilitated by Increasing Use in Preparing Various Dishes

July 27, 2023 | Food & Beverages

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Parboiled and White Rice Market Report by End Use (Food Use, Feed Use), and Region 2024-2032,” the global parboiled and white rice market size reached 504.1 Million Tons in 2023. Parboiled rice undergoes a unique pre-cooking process called parboiling, wherein the rice is soaked, steamed, and then dried before the outer husk is removed. It is commonly used in various cooked dishes, such as biryani, pilaf, and fried rice, wherein individual grains and a firmer texture are required. It maintains its shape and texture when cooked longer, making it easier to achieve the desired doneness. It gelatinizes the starches in the rice, making it easier to digest. Additionally, it reduces the risk of discomfort and bloating in individuals with sensitive stomachs or digestive issues. On the other hand, white rice is a commonly consumed staple food characterized by its neutral flavor, soft texture, and shorter cooking time compared to other rice varieties. It exhibits a longer shelf life, which makes it convenient for storage and consumption. It is easily digestible for individuals with sensitive stomachs due to the removal of the bran and germ during processing. Parboiled and white rice is extensively used in soups, stews, and casseroles, adding texture and bulk to the dish.

Global Parboiled and White Rice Market Trends:

The increasing global population and changing dietary patterns are resulting in the rising rice consumption across various regions. Additionally, the convenience and versatility of parboiled and white rice are fueling their popularity in household and commercial food preparations. Moreover, the growing awareness among individuals about the health benefits associated with whole grain consumption is influencing the market positively as parboiled rice retains a higher nutrient content compared to regular milled rice. As consumers are increasingly prioritizing healthier food choices, parboiled rice is gaining traction. Furthermore, the growing focus on convenience and time-saving solutions is driving the demand for parboiled rice, as it offers quicker cooking times as compared to other rice varieties. The introduction of innovative packaging solutions to ensure product freshness and extend shelf life is also supporting the market growth. Additionally, technological advancements in rice processing and milling techniques are resulting in improved quality and yield. Looking forward, the market volume is projected to reach 560.2 Million Tons by 2032, expanding at a CAGR of 1.1% during 2024-2032.
