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.

  • Peru Agribusiness Report Q3 2014
    Published: 16-Jul-2014        Price: US $1295 Onwards        Pages: 111
    BMI View: Our outlook for Peru's agricultural sector remains positive. The livestock sector is very dynamic, and investment into the country's ethanol sector is boosting sugar production. Export crops such as coffee and cocoa are hampered by a lack of infrastructure and investment, but there is scope for strong growth in both, particularly as Peru is becoming increasingly recognised for organic and speciality crops. We caution that a lack of profitability threatens to weaken the dairy sector......
  • Venezuela Agribusiness Report Q3 2014
    Published: 16-Jul-2014        Price: US $1295 Onwards        Pages: 98
    BMI View: Venezuela is on track to record another lacklustre year for agricultural production in 2014, as output price restrictions and soaring input prices are keeping a lid on investment in crops and machinery. Nicolás Maduro and ruling Partido Socialista Unido de Venezuela made the choice of continuity in terms of interventionist policies, which will maintain a challenging environment for agricultural and food production. Price fixing in particular continues to be a source of woe for produce......
  • Argentina Agribusiness Report Q3 2014
    Published: 11-Jul-2014        Price: US $1295 Onwards        Pages: 108
    BMI View: With an election on the horizon and a deteriorating economic environment, the Argentine grain sector will continued play centre stage over the medium term. With foreign reserves under pressure, grain exports (particularly soybean) will remain vital, but there is increasing 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 the poultry production to show t......
  • Australia Agribusiness Report Q3 2014
    Published: 11-Jul-2014        Price: US $1295 Onwards        Pages: 123
    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. Although Australia will face stiff competition from Asian countries such as Thailand for sugar, and ......
  • Poland Agribusiness Report Q3 2014
    Published: 11-Jul-2014        Price: US $1295 Onwards        Pages: 124
    BMI View: We see the most growth potential for Poland's livestock sector owing to increased export potential to the EU and Asia. The livestock industry in the country is relatively price-competitive compared with industry majors such as Brazil and the US, but it does not necessarily have the right export networks and infrastructure to rival these countries. We believe a law prohibiting kosher beef production, the horsemeat scandal and recent quality concerns in the beef industry will limit growt......
  • United States Agribusiness Report Q3 2014
    Published: 11-Jul-2014        Price: US $1295 Onwards        Pages: 131
    BMI View: The US agriculture sector is unlikely to repeat the performance of 2013, a record year for production and incomes, in 2014. Grain production overall is expected to be lower due to a smaller area planted. That said, the grains sector looks relatively positive compared with livestock, where production will be flat in 2014. The pork sector is facing significant disease concerns from PEDv, while beef production will fall due to increased heifer retention. Fewer cattle facing slaughter will......

    BMI View: Recent adjustments in our outlook for Vietnam's economy and business environment add further weight to our positive view on the country's 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. However, Vietnam is facing growing competition in its key markets, and the fulfilment of its promising potential will only be achieved if the country steps up ......
  • Canada Agribusiness Report Q3 2014
    Published: 2-Jul-2014        Price: US $1295 Onwards        Pages: 122
    BMI View: Grain production will fall in Canada in 2014/15, as logistical problems during the 2013/14 season have resulted in high stocks of wheat, corn and barley. The country's livestock industry is well placed to post strong growth in 2014/15 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. The dairy management system, however, could be under pressure. ? Wheat production growth to 2......

    BMI View: Japan's uncompromising stance in maintaining tariffs on imported rice, wheat, beef, pork, dairy and sugar - the country's sacred farm products list - could prove costly in the long run. Despite the more positive tone of the government in terms of committing to free trade agreements such as the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), the decision to maintain tariffs on key exports attracted widespread criticism from US farm groups in May 2014, such as the National Association of Wheat Growers,......
