The Central America coffee sector is set to see strong production in 2012/13 on the back of large plantings and better investment capacity. However, we believe low global prices could discourage production in the coming years, putting downside risks to the development of the sector in the medium term. The region is generally dependent on imports for corn, and we expect the production deficit to widen over our forecast period. That said, the region is expected to remain self sufficient in sugar and even increase its potential for sugar exports, with the industry having potential to attract investment in over the medium term.

  • Coffee production growth to 2016/17:

    24.1% to 16.2mn bags. As the region becomes more attractive to investors, we expect the coffee sector to see increased export opportunities. That said, there are major downside risks to this view, as the region will continue to be exposed to security risks, disease outbreaks and adverse weather patterns.

  • Corn consumption growth to 2016/17:

    11.1% to 6.8mn tonnes. Demand growth for corn will far outpace production in Central America, affecting prices and keeping the area import-dependent for its grain needs.

  • Sugar production growth to 2016/17:

    11.3% to 5.0mn tonnes. Most countries in the region will continue to run a small production surplus out to 2016/17, and development of the export industry could present upside risks to our production forecasts over the long term.

  • 2013 real GDP growth:

    4.1% year-on-year (y-o-y). Down from 4.5% in 2012 and predicted to average 4.1% over 2012-2017.

  • Consumer price inflation:

    5.2% y-o-y in 2013. Up from 4.8% in 2012 and predicted to average 5.1 %over 2012-2017.

Industry Outlook

Over the long term, we could see consolidation in the coffee industry and private investment help to close the gap between Central America and the rest of South America. Indeed, yield growth in other major producers in South America will eventually reach its limit, while land constraints will restrict plantings. As a result, investors could turn towards more frontier markets with higher risk but potential for higher returns, especially as we are positive about the domestic consumer story in Central America. Panama has agreed a free trade agreement with the US, granting the North American country free access to export high quality beef cuts. For all other beef muscle cuts, Panama’s import duties fall from 30% to zero, and beef variety meat sees duties fall from 15% to zero. Pork duties have been eliminated, too, and a duty-free tariff quota begins at 1,600 tonnes. We believe this could discourage production in the Central American country, as local producers would very likely not be competitive enough to face increasing imports from the US. Our view for the continued expansion of sugar production in the region over the forecast period is linked to our view that sugar prices have bottomed. Even though we do not see prices coming back to their previous peaks, some more upside in the short term – especially during the planting season – and still-elevated prices by historical standards will be sufficient to boost production incentives in the region. Central American farmers tend to be more reliant on global prices than large sugar conglomerates in Brazil.

  • Spain Agribusiness Report Q2 2015
    Published: 15-Apr-2015        Price: US $1295 Onwards        Pages: 115
    BMI View: Livestock prices have held up relatively well in the EU despite the impact of Russia's embargo, and Spanish pig carcass prices remain elevated compared to other EU producers, while pork exports further afield are going from strength to strength. We therefore expect to see continued growth for Spain's most important livestock commodity. Grain producers will be feeling less positive after a sharp drop in yields for wheat and barley and a fall in corn acreage due to irrigation concerns. W......
  • Australia Agribusiness Report Q2 2015
    Published: 8-Apr-2015        Price: US $1295 Onwards        Pages: 117
    BMI View: The Australian agriculture sector is still recovering from a decade of subdued production growth due to extreme weather and a lack of investment. The industry is expected to remain buoyant in 2014 and 2015, largely supported by export demand from Asia and elevated grains and oilseeds prices. In the longer term, we see major export growth opportunities in the sugar and livestock sectors. Australia will face stiff competition from Asian countries such as Thailand for sugar and from the U......
  • Germany Agribusiness Report Q2 2015

    BMI View: German pork producers will come under pressure, owing to the ban on meat imports from Western countries that has been imposed by Russian authorities. On the other hand, sugar production should expand at a stronger pace over the coming years, owing to an increase in growing areas and yields, as well as the potential end to the EU's sugar production quota in 2017. Wheat output should also have a strong harvest in 2014/15, although there are some concerns about wheat quality owing to wet ......
  • United States Agribusiness Report Q2 2015
    Published: 8-Apr-2015        Price: US $1295 Onwards        Pages: 106
    BMI View: Production growth in corn was excellent in 2013/14 owing to record yields. However, farm incomes will be significantly lower given decreases in prices. Livestock will see some mild improvement in production growth in 2014/15, mainly owing to the poultry and pork sectors. The dairy sector is likely to see some improvement, but a record drought in California (the largest producing state) leads to strong downside production risks. Over the long term, the poultry sub-sector will remain the......
  • Argentina Agribusiness Report Q2 2015
    Published: 3-Apr-2015        Price: US $1295 Onwards        Pages: 95
    BMI View: With a deteriorating economic environment, the Argentine grain sector will continue to play centre stage over the medium term. With foreign reserves under pressure, grain exports (particularly soybean) will remain vital, but there remains evidence of hoarding, which could lead to clashes with the government over policy. Nonetheless, soybean will remain the pre-eminent crop in Argentina over the long term and we expect poultry production to show the most promise within the livestock com......
  • Canada Agribusiness Report Q2 2015
    Published: 3-Apr-2015        Price: US $1295 Onwards        Pages: 114
    BMI View: Canada will post a moderate increase in grains production in year-on-year terms in 2015/16, as the area planted will increase as available land recovers from being inaccessible for plantings last year. The country's poultry industry is well placed to post strong growth in 2015 and beyond, while we believe that the Canadian beef and pork industries will gain the most from having signed the EU-Canada Free Trade Agreement in October 2013. We believe that Canada's milk supply management sy......
  • Tanzania Agribusiness Report Q2 2015

    BMI View: We continue to favour the Tanzanian coffee industry over the medium term owing to the potential for growth on the back of strong investment in capacity. The grain industry in Tanzania will remain less competitive than in other countries in the region, particularly South Africa and Zambia, and we see little potential for the country to become a major grain exporter. The country's sugar sector will see limited production growth over the next few years, due to low sugar prices and Tanzani......

    BMI View: The operating environment for the agribusiness sector has deteriorated significantly over recent years due to the poor macroeconomic climate, shortage of foreign currency and therefore agricultural inputs and government mismanagement. Venezuela's economy will be under extreme downward pressure in 2015 amidst the drop in international prices. The growing headwinds to the economy will weigh on agriculture production and consumption in the coming years, and we will see most commodities se......

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, the upcoming economic and financial integration in South East Asia will benefit Vietnam's exports of rice, dairy and coffee. However, Vietnam is facing gr......
