Sugar production fell steeply in 2013/14 and the financial and legal setbacks suffered by major firms suggest that Germany's sugar industry will not enjoy a smooth transition into the post-quota age. Dairy producers are expected to fare better after the removal of supply quotas in 2015 as Europe's number one milk producer is already succeeding in capturing new export markets. Processed dairy products will also perform well over the forecast period and here too we see potential for further growth with deregulation. For meat production we see a more complex outlook with poultry output and consumption forecast to grow substantially, but weak growth expected for pork and beef. We expect strong wheat and corn harvests on the back of favourable weather, with barley falling back slightly in line with longer term trends.

Key Forecasts

* Milk production growth to 2018: 5.8% to 31.9mn tonnes. Modest growth will be supported by export demand and higher prices and held back by sluggish domestic consumption and the demise of smaller producers.
* Pork consumption growth to 2018: down 1.2% to 4.4mn tonnes. Demand for pork has been on a downward trajectory since 2007 and we see no let up in this trend as consumers turn to healthier options.
* Wheat production growth to 2017/18: 14.4% to 25.6mn tonnes. Wheat will gain some ground at the expense of other grains and sugar beet.
* 2014 real GDP growth: 1.9%; up from 0.4% in 2013 and forecast to average 1.5% from 2014 until 2018.
* Consumer price inflation: 1.7% year-on-year (y-o-y) in 2014, up from 1.6% in 2013.
* BMI Universe Agribusiness Market Value to shrink by 2.8% to USD34.4bn in 2014. Expected to grow by 1.2% to USD35.8bn from 2013 to 2018.
