BMI View: Overall, we see the most potential for growth for the soybean, livestock and coffee industry over the medium term. This is because of a shift in food consumption growth towards Asia for these items, while traditional buyers'' demand will experience only subdued growth. We are positive about the sugar cane sector as a whole, as we see strong sugar cane production growth over the rest of our forecast period. This growth will benefit the ethanol industry first as ethanol economics are now favourable to biofuels production at the expense of sugar. In the short-term, we flag risks that the current record grain harvest will encounter problems at the export stage because of current queues at the country''s major ports and upcoming strikes. Among Brazilian agribusiness companies, we favour São Martinho because it is the largest player in the sector and the most likely to benefit from industry developments.

Grains & Livestock On Top

Brazil - BMI Market Value By Commodity (As % of total)

Note: The BMI Market Value is an addition of all domestically produced commodities'' value (calculated by multiplying the production with the international benchmark prices, converted in US$/tonne).

Source: BMI

Key Forecasts


  • Sugar production growth to 2016/17: 16.8% to 43.1mn tonnes. Because replanting has been slower than initially expected, we project average growth over our forecast period. There are upside risks to our view.

  • Coffee consumption growth to 2016/17: 11.5% to 22.3mn bags. Coffee consumers in emerging markets that do not have a strong coffee culture are often very price-sensitive, which will drive demand for the cheaper robusta given its lower production costs.

  • Thailand Agribusiness Report Q1 2017
    Published: 30-Nov-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 77
    BMI View: 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 competitiveness of Thai production compared to its Asian rivals. Rice production will fa......
  • United Kingdom Agribusiness Report Q1 2017
    Published: 30-Nov-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 79
    BMI View: Brexit will be a net negative for the UK agriculture industry due to short-term uncertainty followed by lower revenues and increased costs owing to less favourable subsidies, trade and labour conditions. We expect grains to be the most resilient sector due to its low production costs and greater ease in diversifying trade relationships. In contrast, sugar will be a clear underperformer as the UK will struggle to fully take advantage of the EU quota removal in 20......
  • China Agribusiness Report Q1 2017
    Published: 30-Nov-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 130
    BMI View: China's weight in the global agricultural sector is growing, as the country has an increasing impact on international production balances and prices. China will maintain its appetite for key commodities for the foreseeable future, with particular potential for production growth in sugar, dairy and livestock. High demand growth, strong government support and the potential for investment and consolidation in these industries will help them outperform in the coming......
  • Algeria Agribusiness Report Q1 2017
    Published: 23-Nov-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 61
    BMI View: Algeria will be unable to feed its growing levels of wheat and milk consumption as the country remains a major importer of food products. However, the government's new emphasis on the improvement of food self-sufficiency is helping to revive the sectors. While higher government support is likely to be positive for productivity and product quality in the medium term, Algeria will remain a key importer of wheat and dairy products in the coming years. The country i......
  • Angola, Botswana and Namibia Agribusiness Report Q1 2017
    Published: 23-Nov-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 73
    BMI View: Increasing incomes and populations will see South West Africa enjoy long-term growth in corn production, however, this is not reflected within our forecast period owing to a sharp contraction in output in 2015/16 from which it will take all three nations we are covering time to recover the losses endured. During the five-year period through to the end of our forecasts in2019/20, we see consumption growth outpacing production growth in both Angola and Namibia; me......
  • Bangladesh Agribusiness Report Q1 2017
    Published: 23-Nov-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 65
    BMI View: We have made some modest forecast revisions to the Bangladeshi agricultural sector in this update. Nevertheless, we maintain our cautious outlook towards the agricultural sector over the short term. The limited arable land available for acreage expansion, along with poor safety standards, will continue to weigh on production growth over our current forecast period out to 2020. Logistical problems and structural concerns plague the agricultural industry, particul......
  • Greece Agribusiness Report Q1 2017
    Published: 23-Nov-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 65
    BMI View: Cheese production will see buoyant growth in the coming years due to strong export opportunities, while sugar will remain on a declining trend as competition is set to increase in the EU. Poultry consumption will still outperform the livestock sector due to its lower cost, providing a modest push to corn production towards the end of our forecast period to 2020. As the Greek economy finds relative stability going forward, our forecasts remain largely unchanged f......
  • Kenya Agribusiness Report Q1 2017
    Published: 23-Nov-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 60
    BMI View: Kenya will continue to underperform its regional peers with regard to the development of its agricultural sector. Despite COMESA granting another extension to the sugar import safeguard, which will provide a short-term boost, we expect the country's sugar sector to remain regionally inefficient and to post very limited growth over the coming years. However, we continue to forecast steady coffee production growth due to improvements in husbandry techniques. Kenya......
  • Philippines Agribusiness Report Q1 2017
    Published: 23-Nov-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 79
    BMI View: We hold a positive view on the Philippines' agribusiness sector in the long term, given the country's potential for expansion into new sectors, such as palm oil. We particularly like the outlook for sugar mills and believe the livestock sector will continue to show healthy growth rates. The Philippines' vast consumption market along with some government support, will foster domestic and foreign investment and favour output expansion. However, backyard farming an......
