Dupont (DD) Stock Price Drivers

Stock Price Drivers Agriculture: This is the largest segment by revenue share and is heavily dependent on the demand for agricultural products. The increase in the consumption of corn for the production of ethanol in the commercial sector has driven up demand for high yield corn. This has increased the demand for DuPont's agricultural products and is driving up its stock price. The DuPont Pioneer Hi-bred crop application index decreased by 20% in 2012 As corn is increasingly used to produce ethanol fuel, corn prices are rising and more and more farmers dedicate their land for corn crops. Demand for ethanol is increasing (five-year demand CAGR 15.43%) and corn is being used as the raw material for almost 25% of all ethanol production. DuPont's Agriculture segment and Industrial biosciences segment, which is involved in improving existing ethanol production through bioprocessing aids, can drive their revenues higher. Over the last five years, corn production used for fuel ethanol increased by 22.5%. Over the last 10 years, global Soybean production is increasing at a CAGR of 3.8%.
