France Agribusiness Report Q2 2016 - New Market Study Published

From: Fast Market Research, Inc.
Published: Mon Feb 15 2016

Grains production will see limited growth over the next five years as prices remain weak and France faces competition from other European producers on the export market. French dairy farmers will be among the EU's outperformers due to steady import demand for their cheese production. French meat production wil l suffer from continued weak demand from other EU countries, the traditional importers of French meat.

Key Forecasts

Wheat production growth 2014/15 to 2019/20: 3. 9 % to 40.5mn tonnes. Our forecasts indicate only moderate growth despite increasing import demand from the Middle East and North African, as we believe other grains-producing countries will compete with France to supply this demand.
2016 real GDP growth: 1.4% (up from 1.1% in 2015).
2016 consumer price inflation: 0.8% (up from 0.4% in 2015).
BMI universe agribusiness market value: USD71.6 bn in 2015/16, a 3.1% y-o-y increase.

Latest Updates & Structural Trends

Wheat production will decline in 2016/17 after a bumper crop in 2015/16, while the corn crop will recover from the impact of a hot and dry summer on last year's yields. France will face continued competition from Eastern European producers on the wheat export market, while it will continue to find steady demand from China for its barley production.

France will see strong growth in milk production out to 2020 due to export-driven increases in cheese production. This strong export demand will enable French dairy farmers to be among the EU's outperformers after the consolidation wave.

We maintain our forecasts for subdued growth in French meat production over the next five years due to continued weak demand from other EU countries, the traditional importers of French meat. Our view for poultry meat to remain the strongest in terms of consumption growth underpins our view for poultry production to outperform the livestock complex.
