    Meat Market Review - Overview of global meat market developments in 2020, March 2021 2021

    The Meat Market Review, March 2021 issue presents an overview of global meat market developments in 2020, including trends in international meat prices, global meat production and trade in meat and meat products. International meat prices fell in 2020, reflecting price declines across all meat types, underpinned by widespread import curtailments by many meat importing countries due to pandemic-related economic downturns, transport bottlenecks and foreign reserve limitations. Increased export availabilities in exporting countries owing to reduced food services sales and lower internal demand also depressed international meat prices. Regarding meat production, world meat output remained stable, despite pandemic related issues and impacts of African swine fever. The total world meat trade increased, albeit slowly. Fuelled by strong demand from East Asia, world trade in pig meat rose, but weak demand and limited supplies resulted in lower bovine and ovine meat trade. Despite market disruptions, world trade in poultry meat remained stable.

    The December issue of the Meat Market Review presents emerging trends and outlook of international meat prices, global meat production and trade in meat products. After rising consecutively for ten months since October 2020, the FAO Meat Price Index rose to 114.1 points in July this year, driven by solid global import demand outstripping supplies from major exporting countries. However, a slowdown in pig meat imports by China weighed on international meat prices since August. World meat production in 2021 is anticipated to expand, sustained by increased pig meat output in Asia. Global meat trade is forecast to increase by 1.1 percent, but marking the slowest pace of growth in six years.

    The FAO Meat Price Index averaged 110.3 points in July, up marginally from June, putting the index 19.6 percent above the corresponding month last year. In July, quotations for poultry meat rose the most, underpinned by increased imports by East Asia amidst limited production expansions in some producer regions, while those of ovine meat increased on high import purchases and seasonally declining supplies from Oceania. Bovine meat prices also strengthened, reflecting the tightening of global markets due to lower supplies from major producing regions and continued high imports, especially by China. Conversely, pig meat prices fell, following a decline in imports by China, notwithstanding limited supplies from Germany due to the spread of African swine fever in some pig farms.
