Grain-Based Foods: United States

ABOUT THIS REPORT

Scope and Method


This report forecasts US grain-based food shipments in US dollars at the
manufacturers level. Total shipments are segmented by type in terms of:

commercial and retail bakery products


cookies and crackers
breakfast cereal
frozen goods
other grain-based foods such as corn chips, pasta, and tortillas.

Excluded from the scope of this report is bulk flour sourced from flour mills, except in
the case of milled flour sold in prepared mixes and dough.
Total shipments and the various segments are sized at five-year intervals for historical
years 2006 and 2011 with a forecast to 2016. Forecasts emanate from the identification
and analysis of pertinent statistical relationships and other historical trends/events as
well as their expected progression/impact over the forecast period. Changes in
quantities between reported years of a given total or segment are typically provided in
terms of five-year compound annual growth rates (CAGRs). For the sake of brevity,
forecasts are generally stated in smoothed CAGR-based descriptions to the forecast
year, such as demand is projected to rise 3.2% annually through 2016. The result of
any particular year over that period, however, may exhibit volatility and depart from a
smoothed, long-term trend, as historical data typically illustrate.
Key macroeconomic indicators are also provided at five-year intervals with CAGRs for
the years corresponding to other reported figures. Other various topics, including
profiles of pertinent leading suppliers, are covered in this report. A full outline of report
items by page is available in the Table of Contents.
