Plentiful harvest: Increasing demand from biofuel producers supports a return to industry growth

The Farm Product Storage and Warehousing industry's performance depends largely on the performance of the upstream agricultural sector and related international trade. Industry operators generate revenue by transporting, storing and packing agricultural goods. Over the five years to 2022, industry revenue is anticipated to continue its decline. Demand from soybean farming is forecast to decline and corn farming is anticipated to only grow slightly. Overall crop production exhibits long-term stable trends, as demand is relatively more.
