New Study: Egypt Agribusiness Report Q2 2016

From: Fast Market Research, Inc.
Published: Tue Apr 12 2016

We hold a generally positive outlook on the Egyptian agricultural market. Nevertheless, our forecasts suggest that Egypt will face growing production deficits in grains and meat as it focuses on export-oriented cash crops , while the dairy sector will benefit from sustained private investment. Out to 2020 , an expanding population and rising disposable incomes will support consumption growth in sugar and dairy products. Moreover, rice and beef consumption will benefit from the greater range of products available under the new food subsidy scheme.

Key Forecasts

Wheat production growth to 2020: 2.4% to 8.50mn tonnes. Wheat production will be constrained by a greater amount of arable land being devoted to export-oriented crops.
Rice consumption growth to 2020: 11.2% to 4.45mn tonnes. This will come from lower bread consumption induced by the new food subsidy scheme.
Sugar consumption growth to 2020: 12.2% to 3.28mn tonnes. An expanding population and rising disposable incomes will stimulate demand for soft drinks and confectionary goods.
Poultry production growth to 2020: 3.0% to 968,000 tonnes. The recent avian flu outbreak will only cause temporary disruptions in the poultry sector as it is largely due to rural backyard poultry infections, leaving industrial production intact.
Real GDP growth: 2.6% in 2016 (no increase in rate from 2015).
Consumer price inflation: 10.1% average in 2016 (down from 10.4% y-o-y in 2015).
