Market Research

Brief Description

New study focuses on a grain storage system of Ukraine. Grain storages and silos types, their capacities and location, technique and methods of grains and oilseeds storage are described in detail. Characteristics of grain silo owners, proprietors and holders, competition on the storage capacities market and their adequacy to market needs are described in the study.

Features and risks of the grain storage market as well as silo construction, lease and purchase issues are considered in detail. Individual chapters are dedicated to silo activities, their equipment and documents circulation, prospects of a grain storage system and silo industry development as well as state support and legislation. The Table of contents, which is presented below, contains a list of all issues addressed in the study.

Grain trade is one of the most promising, profitable and attractive branches in Ukraine from investment viewpoint. After grains have been harvested, the most important issue is to store them to avoid losses and excessive costs. All producers and consumers of these products, such as agrarian companies, farmers, intermediaries, industrial complexes, plants and exporters need services of qualitative grain storage. The study will assist in sorting out all the nuances of this industry.
