Recent Study: Brazil Agribusiness Report Q4 2014

New Food research report from Business Monitor International is now available from Fast Market Research


Boston, MA -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/28/2014 -- Overall, we believe there is the most potential for growth in Brazil's soybean, livestock/dairy and coffee segments over the medium term. This is because of a shift in food consumption growth towards Asia for these items, while demand growth from traditional buyers will be subdued. We are more cautious about the sugar cane sector as a whole, as mills are suffering from low profitability linked to low global sugar prices and heavy debt burdens. Only the ethanol industry will encourage cane production growth, but it is still unclear if the government will continue to see biofuels as a priority in its energy mix in the medium term. In the short term, recurring weather concerns linked to climate will pose downside risks to all our forecasts over the coming years and to global prices as the country is such a significant exporter.

Key Forecasts:

- Soybean production growth to 2017/18: 22.9% to 100.8mn tonnes. This will come as more area is shifted from corn to soy in the coming years on the back of an extremely competitive soy/corn ratio by historical standards.

- Poultry consumption growth to 2018: 18.6% to 10.5mn tonnes. A growing middle class and the general preference for poultry over all other meat groups because of its health properties and lower prices will encourage demand growth.

- Milk production growth to 2017/18: 33.0 % to 43.1mn tonnes. Brazil has the potential to become a significant exporter of dairy products over the forecast period to 2018 if its milk collection and processing infrastructure can be brought up to international standards.

- 2014 real GDP growth: 1.8% (down from 2.5% in 2013).

- 2014 consumer price inflation: 5.9% average (down from 6.2% in 2013)

- BMI universe agribusiness market value: 1.4% year-on-year (y-o-y) decrease to USD170.5bn in 2014, forecast to increase by an average of 1.2% annually between 2012/13 and 2017/18.
