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.

    In March 2012, corn price has enjoyed a slight uptrend thanks to some governmental support measures and the fact that farmers were still reluctant to sell their corn. However, the price may fall back in the near future, because corn's demand will be gloomy while its supply may be released intensively. In addition, CCM International has begun to publish reports about the development of some corn products in 2011, some of which enjoyed good development, such as PLA, MSG, and L-phe. Bu......

    Published: 01-May-2012        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 65
    BMI View: Severe droughts in Spain's main growing regions in recent months have severely affected grain crops during plantings. As a result, we have revised down our forecasts for wheat, corn and barley production for 2012/13. We believe dry conditions could also affect the livestock and dairy industries via herd growth in pasture lands, and therefore meat and dairy production. These dynamics are likely to be aggravated a continued credit tightening in Spain, which will make it difficult for far......

    BMI View: The vital US grains sector is expected to rebound in the 2012/13 season as soil conditions improve and high prices result in record plantings. The country's livestock sector (particularly beef) is likely to see more subdued growth, largely because inventory levels are lower. Given that cattle and lean hog prices remain high, we expect production to increase over our forecast period. As always, production growth will be dictated to a large extent by export demand, as aside from poultry,......

    BMI View: The Ethiopian grain crop as a whole should register slightly lower production for the 2011/12 season. Despite good rains towards the rest of the 2011, the important 'belg' rains at the start of 2012 arrived late, leading to delays in some plantings and resulting in a reduced corn crop. Overall, however, the country's food security situation is relatively stable, with local prices well below 2011 peaks in most regions. Overall, we expect the agriculture sector to remain highly fragmente......

    BMI View: We expect lower production growth for French grains in 2012/13, as cold snaps have destroyed parts of the wheat, barley and corn plantings. In addition, the recent decision by the country's agriculture ministry to renew the ban on genetically modified Monsanto corn plantings for another year will limit the country's corn yields in the medium term. For dairy, the recent decision by the European Commission to allow contracts between producers and processors is expected to increase visibi......
