The global millet market size reached US$ 12.33 Billion in 2022. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to reach US$ 16.27 Billion by 2028, exhibiting a growth rate (CAGR) of 4.60% during 2023-2028. The escalating demand for large-scale millet cultivation as a staple crop, emerging trend of vegan and vegetarian diets, and growing awareness regarding health and fitness among the consumers represent some of the key factors driving the market.
Millets refer to the small-seeded grasses that yield cereal grains and are cultivated globally in semi-arid regions. They are rugged crops that can flourish in adverse soil and water-scarce environments, making them a sustainable crop choice for dry, semi-arid, and sub-humid agricultural areas with diverse climates. Millets can be utilized in a wide range of dishes, such as porridges, bread, soups, stews, and beer, and are also used as a source of animal feed, particularly for poultry and livestock. Due to their high fiber, protein, vitamin, and mineral content, gluten-free and hypoglycemic properties, millets are suitable for people with gluten intolerance or celiac disease. In addition, they also offer several health advantages, including improved digestion, decreased cholesterol levels, and better control of blood sugar levels. Furthermore, millets are more cost-effective compared to other cereal grains, making them an ideal option for individuals on a tight budget.
Millet Market Trends:
The escalating demand for large-scale millet cultivation as a staple crop due to its affordability and sustainability as an alternative to rice, wheat, and corn is a significant factor driving the market. This can be attributed to the high cost and rising usage of farming resources such as labor, underground water, crop medicines, and land availability, particularly in emerging economies. In line with this, the emerging trend of vegan and vegetarian diets featuring millets as a nutritional and versatile ingredient is also acting as a significant growth-inducing factor for the market. Moreover, the growing awareness regarding health and fitness among the consumers are resulting in a higher uptake of organic, natural, and gluten-free products, which, in turn, is fueling the market. The market is further fueled by the rapid utilization of millets and millet derivatives in the formulation of infant food. Additionally, the rising concerns regarding climate change and global warming is resulting in a higher uptake of millet cultivation due to its drought-resistance and low water requirement. Furthermore, the easy product availability across offline and online retail channels are creating a positive outlook for the market. Some of the other factors contributing to the market include considerable growth in the agriculture industry, rising popularity of sustainable farming practices, reducing area of arable lands due to rapid urbanization, growing geriatric population requiring healthier diets, and extensive research and development (R&D) activities.
