Rice is produced and milled globally, yet major percentage of total rice produced is consumed in the countries where it is produced, but growing demand in some areas is driving the international rice trade between the regions. Most of the rice is consumed and produced in Asia and Central-Asian countries like India, Pakistan and Thailand accounts for approximately 90% of world rice production. Due to high export of rice to other countries, the current share in global rice consumption of these countries is slightly lesser than the total production.
