    Meat Market Review - Emerging trends and outlook 2020
    Also available in:
    No results found.

    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. In November, the FAO Meat Price Index rose, after 10-months of decreases, underpinned by a fast pace of purchases by China and limited supplies of most meat products. World meat production in 2020 is forecast to fall due to the African swine fever viral disease that constrained pig meat production in East Asia. However, world trade in poultry and pig meat products is rising, induced by robust import demand from East Asia. Many other countries are curtailing imports, reflecting market disruptions, lower household incomes and logistical hurdles that resulted from the global health crisis.

    Meat Market Review: 2019 Outlook

    Global meat output is forecast at 335 million tonnes (in carcass weight equivalent) in 2019, 1 percent lower than in 2018. This marks a departure from the stable growth trend recorded over the past two decades and indicates a sharper fall than anticipated in May, principally due to a deeper than earlier expected impact of African Swine Fever (ASF) in China and its spread to several East Asian countries. World meat exports is forecast at 36 million tonnes in 2019, up 6.7 percent from 2018, principally driven by increased imports by China due to domestic tightness caused by ASF-related production losses. The FAO Meat Price Index measured by the FAO Meat Price Index, have continued to register moderate month-on-month increases since the start of 2019, with pig meat, frozen in particular, recording the sharpest rise due to the surge in import demand by China. Poultry, ovine and bovine meat prices strengthened, also supported by stronger Asian demand.

    The November issue of the publication summarizes the salient trends and market outlook in 2022. The international meat prices reached an all-time high in June 2022 amid tight global supplies. Moreover, global meat production in 2022 is expected to expand only moderately, constrained by animal diseases, rising input costs and extreme weather events. Meanwhile, world meat trade is likely to fall, weighed by a contraction in pig meat imports and economic slowdowns and downturns.
