Global hermetic food grain storage market: Introduction

The way of storing food grains has evolved in recent years. From traditional way of storing food grains, people are moving towards hermetic storage. This method was first introduced in the 1980s. Hermetic food grain storage method is now replacing traditional post-harvest storage method. The term hermetic means air tight seal, which is impermeable to air flow. To prevent spoilage attack of insects, hermetic food grain storage came into existence. Many countries around the globe are opting for this method of storing grains and different commodities such as rice, maize, wheat, pulses, seeds, and cocoa, among others.

In addition, hermetic storage is used for intercontinental shipments to transfer a variety of commodities. Hermetic storage is typically necessary in tropical and semi-tropical areas having high humidity and temperature. Hermetic food grain storage includes various kinds of containers such as flexible plastic containers, flexible enclosures and hermetic bunkers. They all vary in capacities, ranging from a few kilograms to thousands of tons. As hermetic storage reduces flow of air in and out of it, a low oxygen atmosphere is created, and hence storage loss is reduced to minimal.  

Global hermetic food grain storage market: Dynamics

Growing agricultural activities and increasing need to store food for a long span of time, across the globe boosts the hermetic food grain storage market growth. Advantage of hermetic food grain storage is that it keeps moisture away from the product. Therefore, it increases the time period of storing grains and commodities. This is expected to drive the demand for hermetic food grain storage over the forecast period. Hermetic food grain storage market is anticipated to grow due to growing trans-oceanic transport and intercontinental trade of commodities and grains. Availability of various storage capacities ranging from some kilograms of containers to bunkers which can hold tons of grains, it will fuel the market growth over the forecast period. Hermetic storage has the ability to store high value commodities such as cocoa and coffee for months without any damage.

This is also a key factor, expected to drive the growth of the global hermetic food grain storage market over the forecast period. Laboratory studies have shown that hermetic food grain storage which creates oxygen environment of less than 1%, after 15 days it will prevent the production of free fatty acids (FFA). Using hermetic storage is an effective solution of keeping FFA levels under control and it also prevents the spoilage of grains and commodities. It will drive the global hermetic food grain storage market over the forecast period. One key factor which might hamper the growth of global food grain storage market is that it works effectively at room temperature and above, but it can be slower at lower temperatures.
