New Market Report: Vietnam Agribusiness Report Q3 2016

From: Fast Market Research, Inc.
Published: Mon Jun 20 2016

Recent developments in Vietnam's economic and business environment s add further weight to our positive view on its agribusiness sector. The industry holds strong growth opportunities in terms of production, exports and retail sales, particularly with regard to the rice, coffee, livestock and dairy sectors. Moreover, economic and financial integration in South East Asia will benefit Vietnam's exports of rice, dairy and coffee. However, Vietnam is facing growing competition in its key markets . T he fulfilment of its promising potential will only be achieved if the country steps up its competitiveness and improves both product quality and supply chain efficiency. Vietnam will have to significantly ramp up investments on crop productivity in order to not be left behind and , if it does, it will be able to produce more value-added crops and maintain its status as an export spearhead.

Key Forecasts

Pork production growth to 2019/20: 19.9% to 3.0mn tonnes. After going through challenging times amidst high feed costs, disease outbreaks and weaker growth, the livestock sector has been on the recovery trend since 2014-2015. Growth will remain strong in the medium term, helped by higher local meat prices and economic growth.

Milk production growth to 2019/20: 61.9% to 876,000 tonnes. Dramatic increases in cattle numbers and increased public and private sector investment - part of the effort to reduce the country's growing import dependency - will be the main boost to growth. Commercialisation will also play a key role as larger, more efficient farms come to play a greater role in milk production.

Sugar consumption growth to 2020: 23.0% to 2.4mn tonnes. Rising incomes, population growth and increased consumption of manufactured food products will help sugar consumption grow quickly in the coming years. Domestic production growth will not be able to keep up with consumption expansion.

2016 BMI universe agribusiness market value: USD41.1bn (up from USD38.9bn in 2015; growth expected to average 4.5% annually between 2016 and 2020).

2016 real GDP growth: 6.3% (down from 6.7% in 2015; predicted to average 6.3% over 2016-2020).

2016 consumer price index: 2.1% y-o-y (up from 0.6% in 2015; predicted to average 4.3% over 2016-2020).

Key Developments

The 2015-2016 El Nino episode, which ended in May according to the Australia Bureau Of Meteorology, caused severe weather disruption to Vietnam. The country recorded low rainfall in 2015 and a drought over most of H116. This will lead to a decline in rice production and a slowdown in coffee output in 2015/16.
