USDA estimates 5% growth in Brazilian meat exports

Brazilian meat exports should continue to grow and, this year, it is estimated that Brazil will increase its animal protein shipments to the world market by 5%. The projection was released by the USDA and it is based on the pork supply deficit in China, the competitive currency and the global economy recovery.
By the end of 2021, Brazilians should account for 23% of global meat exports. Only for beef, this participation should close with around 25% of total worldwide shipments. In addition to strong purchases from China, the European Union and the Middle East show a recovery in demand and this is favoring Brazil.
With regard to pork, Brazil's share of global exports has continuously increased in recent years. It is estimated that in 2021 Brazilians will represent 11% of world exports. That total will be 73% higher than those recorded before China began to face problems with African swine fever in 2018.
Brazilian exports of chicken meat will represent 32% of the volume traded internationally in 2021.
