Elevators and Terminals in Ukraine

Grain production and exports in Ukraine are now all-time high, stimulating the construction and modernization of elevators and terminals. While mostly major companies constructed elevators before, a growing interest in building or upgrading grain and oilseeds storage facilities is currently shown by large and medium-sized farms.

Moreover, the regional structure of grain and oilseeds production is changing. In some regions, the available storage capacities can no longer accommodate increasing harvests.

Export grain shipments are also hitting new highs, thereby adding to the load on grain terminals. The port facilities are being actively upgraded now.

Analytical study

The analytical study “Grain Elevators and Terminals in Ukraine” provides an in-depth analysis of current trends and events in the grain market. The long-term market development forecast until 2025 is based on scrutinizing sections of the grain supply and demand balance.

Special attention is paid to the description of elevator services, taking into account their cost, as well as to the regional location of elevators in line with the grain production and consumption geography; an assessment is made of the availability of storage capacities in the regions.

The study “Grain Elevators and Terminals in Ukraine” comprises a statistical database that gives a complete picture of grain market developments in the required period of time (production by region, exports by company and country, grain transshipment volumes in the Black Sea ports, a ranking of Ukrainian grain exporters).

In the basic version of the study, information covers a 3-5-year period according to the contents given on the website. However, if required, the study structure can be adjusted in line with the customer’s wishes.
