The report provides an in-depth analysis of the U.S. flour market. It

From 2008 to 2015, the U.S. flour market showed mixed dynamics. A
significant increase in 2011 was followed by a gradual decline over the
next five years. According to our estimates, the U.S. flour market
dropped to 14.78 million USD in 2015.

U.S. growth in flour consumption is expected to slow to +2.3% (currently
+2.6%, based on USD) in the medium term. The market will continue to be
mainly driven by the expansion of downstream industries, while per
capita consumption of households should remain relatively stable.

Downstream industries, including bread, cookie, cracker, tortilla, and
pasta production, have experienced a rebound from their recessionary
slumps, boosting demand for flour over the past years. From 2008 to
2015, all these industries posted solid growth in production. The growth
rate of tortilla manufacturing was especially fast (+6.0% per year). It
was followed by dry pasta, dough, and flour mixes manufacturing (+4.3%
per year), commercial bakery (+2.8% per year), frozen cakes, pies, and
other pastries manufacturing (+2.0% per year), and cookie and cracker
manufacturing (+0.8%).

In 2011, U.S. flour manufacturers outperformed the pre-recession
production level after a slight decline in 2008-2010. Over the next few
years, domestic producers suffered from a downward trend. In 2015, the
value of shipments in the industry was estimated at 15,196 million USD.

Due to low trade intensity, imports and exports should not be regarded
as strong factors influencing U.S. market dynamics in the medium term.
