[Report Description]

The market for rice in Africa is estimated to register a CAGR of 3.2% in terms of consumption, during the forecast period of 2020-2025. Rice cultivation across the country is mostly done by small holding farmers. Around one-tenth of the total production by large-scale firms and trading companies may be partially vertically integrated (and to a lesser extent horizontally through outgrowers).

Key Market Trends

Increasing Imports from other Producing Countries

According to the International Rice Research Institute, the demand for specialty rice is increasing, with Africa being one of the regions where the demand is increasing at a good rate. The domestic rice consumption has been witnessing an upward trend over the years, due to elevating population growth. Rice has become a major part of the diet among consumers, owing to its convenience in preparation and palatable recipes. As the country is not able to meet the growing demand through its local production, its dependency on the imports of rice is increasing. In Ghana, consumers are shifting toward the consumption of Asian rice, particularly Thai jasmine rice. The quality of this variety has been constantly improving, which, in turn, attracts a huge consumer base in Africa, and it gives an impetus to the rice imports.

Increasing Production Initiatives in Ghana

Most of the rice consumed in Ghana is import-dependent. Nearly 68%-72% of the rice market in the country is organized by the import market. Domestic production caters only to 30%-35% of the local demand. To reduce its reliance on imports, the country is expanding its domestic production. The Ghanaian government intends to ban rice importation by 2022, thereby focusing on increasing domestic production. ​Rice is one of the major cereal crops, after corn, and has become one of the staple crops in the country. In 2019, Ghana recorded a total rice production level of about 900,000 metric ton, and the government believes that by 2022, the domestic production in the country will be able to meet the average per capita consumption rate of rice in the country to about 1,135 metric ton.​ In 2018, the average yield in the country was 28,245 hg/ha. The major factors driving the rice consumption in the country are its increasing importance in Ghanaian homes, its relative convenience in preparation, and its palatable recipes. In addition to the aforementioned factors, increasing number of fast-food restaurants and vendors in major cities have increased the demand for rice. ​Hence, based on the above-mentioned factors, the increasing demand for rice from restaurants and middle-income people and increasing local production in the country are the factors anticipated to boost the sales of Ghanaian rice in the years to come. ​
