Parboiled and White Rice Market Report, Industry Overview, Growth Rate and Forecast 2026

The global parboiled and white rice market volume is projected to reach 509.20 Million Tons by 2026, expanding at a CAGR of 1.30% during the forecast period (2021-2026), according to the latest report by IMARC Group.

Parboiled and white are two of the most consumed varieties of rice. Among these, white rice is processed by removing the bran, husk and germ that alters the texture and the appearance of the rice. On the other hand, parboiled rice, also known as easy-to-cook rice, is more flavorful than white rice and is soaked, steamed and dried before being milled. This helps harden the grain, minimize the possibility of over-cooking, and retains the natural vitamin and mineral content. Rice represents one of the most crucial staple food items that is consumed by more than half of the world’s total population. It is generally produced and consumed in Asian countries such as China, Japan, India, Indonesia, Bangladesh, Vietnam and Korea.
