As 2013 comes to a close, distillers grains exports are on pace to match or exceed the industry's high mark of 9 million metric tons per year. One-fourth of the nearly 40 million metric tons of distillers grains produced in the U.S. each year is now exported. China tops the list of importers in this $2 billion market—but not without placing tougher demands on American suppliers. Meanwhile, buyers in Japan, South Korea, Vietnam and the Philippines are continuing to place progressively larger orders. Understanding more about the product than ever before, buyers in Latin America, select areas of Europe and the Middle East are also ramping up their usage. This webinar will provide a near-term outlook on distillers grains exports, along with year-end export data for 2013 and supply and demand projections for early 2014. Industry experts will explain the drivers behind the rising use of DDGS and other coproducts, including the ongoing education (and reeducation) of major buyers, and the latent growth potential represented by the sheer volumes of feed needed to meet the world's growing demand for protein.
