Thailand Agribusiness Report Q4 2015: New research report available at Fast Market Research

Thailand will maintain its status as a key Asian agricultural provider in the coming years, as the sector boasts strong export opportunities and government support as well as an efficient food producing industry. The sugar and livestock sectors hold promising growth stories. However, the government's interference in the market, especially in the rice sector, will hinder the competitive ness of Thai production compared to its Asian rivals. Rice production will face downward pressure as the government incentivises farmers to switch away from rice towards other crops, mainly sugarcane, in a bid to curb oversupply of rice. That said, Thailand will likely regain its status as the world's largest rice exporter as the government seeks to clear out its rice stockpile by 2016.

Key Forecasts

Milk production growth to 201 8/19 : 15.9% to 1.2 mn tonnes. Production expansion will come on the back of large producers increasing the size of their herds. While we expect the number of dairy cattle to increase, the number of operators will fall as smaller producers are unable to compete and are thus forced to leave the sector.

Sugar production growth to 201 8/19 : 9.4 % to 12.4 mn tonnes. Sugar output will be driven mainly by the new government incentives, strong sugar cane yield improvements and improved sugar recovery from cane and strong export opportunities.

Rice production growth to 201 8/19 : 5.5 % to 2 1.6 mn tonnes. The government is now aiming at reducing the country's rice oversupply by incentivizing farmers to turn to alternative crops. This will limit plantings growth in the coming years.
