Asia's poultry producers expect
strong results in 2019
Asia will again have the best performing economy this year, but how
will the region's poultry producers fare?
MARK CLEMENTS

E

xpectations for Asia's poultry producers, as with
those in the rest of the world, are broadly positive this year.
Growth in the region's economy, forecast to be
more than 5%, will again be the fastest growing in the
world this year, even if the rate of expansion will be
below that of 2018.
For the poultry industry, with rising consumer
incomes and demand, generally favorable feed
supplies in many countries, and no widespread
outbreaks of highly pathogenic influenza, the general
stage would appear to be set for a positive 2019, even
if there may be some potential clouds on the horizon.

Since late last year, difficulties in China's swine sector have
resulted in a rebound in demand for chicken and rapidly rising
prices. Baoshengrulai | Dreamstime

China, record high prices
The misfortunes of China's swine sector are proving positive for the country's chicken producers, as consumers
increasingly look to the country's second favorite meat.
Prior to ongoing outbreaks of African swine fever
that started in early August 2018, and after a period
of rather weak demand for chicken meat, the U.S.
Department of Agriculture (USDA) forecast that
chicken meat production in China would increase by
3% this year to 12 million metric tons.
This might now appear to be somewhat of an
underestimate. Chicken prices reached record highs
toward the end of last year, as demand increased in
response to a lack of affordable pork supplies and
safety concerns over pork production.
Rising demand for product is not the only positive
for the sector; producers are also benefiting from favorable feed costs. However, they remain constrained by
lower levels of breeding stocks - the result of various
trade bans.
China's output, consumption and imports are
all expected to be higher this year, and if the local
industry is unable to respond to rising demand, imports
will rise.
Despite difficulties, Brazil remains the country's
largest supplier. However, at the start of the year,
China was increasingly sourcing from Thailand and
Eastern Europe, notes Rabobank.
Depending on the outcome of trade discussions with
the U.S., China could restart imports from that country.
