Global poultry market dynamics and current trends
The global poultry market is recovering in production, so forecasts for 2022 are favorable.
Poultry is one of the most solid and important industries in the world through the production of broilers and laying hens. The poultry market is positioned as one of the most important sectors globally due to its participation in the world’s food security and its leading role in international markets.
The world poultry market is seeking to reactivate after the COVID-19 pandemic that affected all countries in the world in 2020 and 2021. Currently, the opening of markets has favored the emergence of new connections, and the strengthening of businesses, events, and companies in the poultry sector.
Figures for the global poultry market indicate a 4.1% growth between 2021 and 2025, reaching a production of 100.9 million metric tons. Of this amount, exports are expected to be close to 13.4 million tons led by Brazil, the United States, and China.
On the other hand, the poultry market expects an increase in the prices of the various products that make up the production chain. The growing demand for these animal proteins encourages price increases, as well as the current price of feed and raw materials, which have increased in recent months at international level.
Favorable figures in the U.S. poultry industry
After overcoming the difficulties of 2020 with great stability, the poultry market presented favorable figures in 2021. According to that year’s figures, in the United States, broiler production increased by 0.7% compared to 2020, reaching a production of 20 408 million metric tons of meat. In addition, exports of 3 349 million metric tons of this product were achieved.
These values are of great relevance for generating broiler production forecasts for 2022. For the current year, poultry meat production is expected to reach 45 225 million metric tons and exports are expected to reach 3323 million metric tons. Likewise, a 0.3% increase in per capita broiler consumption is expected for 2022 compared to the previous year. These forecast figures for the current year indicate an expected and remarkable growth for the poultry market.
In the turkey industry, U.S. forecast figures for 2022 indicate that the goal is to reach a production of 2555 million metric tons and to improve the per capita consumption of this animal protein to 7.1 kg.
In the U.S. poultry market, there is a major export component as China is one of its main destinations. In 2021, 460 159 metric tons of chicken meat were shipped to the Asian country, for an approximate value of USD 864 million.
The poultry market has grown significantly in the last decade.
The world’s poultry industry is growing rapidly every year thanks to its technified industry, use of technologies, improvements in animal welfare, and optimization of poultry farm infrastructure. As a result, poultry production increased from 94 million tons in 2009 to 131 million tons by 2019. This growth meant a production increase of 39% in a decade. Within this amount produced, it is estimated that 15.2%, equivalent to 20 million tons, were exported to different markets.
Among the production of 2019 Asia participated with 37.8%, being the continent with the greatest role in the global poultry industry. In second place was Latin America with 20.7%, followed by North America with 18.5%, and in fourth place Europe with 16.8%.
As for exports, during the last decade, they also had significant growth since they went from 14 million tons in 2009 to 19.9 million tons in 2019. This 37.1% growth was realized thanks to production in Europe and America, as these two continents generated 83.4% of the volume exported in this decade. The two leading countries in broiler exports are Brazil and the United States.
These exports are mediated by the high demand of several countries whose domestic production is not able to supply domestic markets. Asia stands out as one of the main importers in the poultry market due to its high domestic demand, with China being one of the largest consumers of poultry products in the world.
