Industry Threats & Opportunities

  • Due to limited consumer demand, industry product sales have dropped
  • Corn prices have exhibited massive flucuations in the past five years
  • Demand from beverage manufacturers will continue to wane in upcoming years
  • Industry Analysis & Industry Trends

    As health-conscious consumers move away from sodas and toward fresh and organic foods, the High Fructose Corn Syrup Production industry has faced decreased demand and has subsequently lowered annual production. Due to limited consumer demand, US production of HFCS has declined over the past five years. HFCS producers will still grapple with limited demand causing revenue to decline in 2016 and overall, in the five years to 2021, industry revenue is forecast to grow slowly.

    Industry Report - Industry Key Buyers Chapter

    The High Fructose Corn Syrup Production industry is highly concentrated. In 2016, the top four operators in the industry account for an expected 86.6% of total industry revenue. This is largely due to the fact that the larger operators in the industry are relatively more secure than smaller operators facing fluctuating demand and volatile commodity prices. Larger operators are better able to negotiate contracts that shield them from volatile input prices, though large operators are not entirely immune to price fluctuations. Additionally, larger operators have greater access to international markets, which is key due to the fact that high fructose corn syrup consumption has been declining domestically over the past five years.
