A blockchain is a digital ledger in which transactions made are recorded chronologically. The blockchain is considered to be a most secure way to share the operations and its details as it’s distributed across each stakeholder across the system. As the transactions are recorded on each stakeholder, it’s nearly impossible to alter or tamper with it. This factor plays a significant role in supply chain management.
As supply chain is the series of transactions and the visibility across the supply chain would help reduce the various unnecessary cost and wastages across it. The use of blockchain within Agrifood would help to reduce the food frauds, will establish the authenticity of the product, and improve customer satisfaction.
The Global Agrifood Blockchain Market is expected to grow at a CAGR of YY % during the forecasting period (2019-2026).
Increase in Demand for Agricultural Supply-Chain Transparency and Growth in Concerns Toward Food Wastage are key factors driving the growth of global agrifood blockchain market.
The agrifood supply chain faces issues concerning the integrity of food items: consumer trust, supply chain transparency, product quality, logistic problems, environmental impact, personal consumer data, fraud, and food safety. Increasing demand for food information from consumers’ side thus reflects the need for transparency and lack of trust.
However, Lack of Technical skillset in Blockchain Technology and Uncertain Regulations and Standards for Blockchain might hamper the market growth.
For the successful adoption of blockchain technology in the agricultural sector, all parties involved, including farmers, small- and medium- enterprises (SMEs), producers, and processors have to participate actively and engage on the platform or ecosystem using a connected communication network.
While suppliers and distributors possess the essential infrastructure of the technology, small-time farmers and growers in rural areas might lack the technical know-how to utilize the system.
