BMI View: Our outlook for Venezuela''s agricultural sector is cautious given the country''s uncertain political and economic outlook. The country has significant growth potential, but the government''s policies of expropriation have seen production of key crops decline and a growing reliance on imports. Although the poultry section, for example, is well integrated, arable production and cash crops such as cocoa or coffee have been poorly managed. Following the death of president Hugo Chávez, we anticipate a new presidential election within months and believe that interim president Nicolás Maduro of the ruling Partido Socialista Unido de Venezuela will win and will continue the interventionist policies of Chávez''s era.

However, we believe the pace of reforms may be more moderate and see significant potential for economic growth over our forecast period. This will, however, be dependent on the improvement of infrastructure and the adoption of more market-friendly policies.

Key Forecasts


  • Corn production growth to 2017: 45.7% to 2.04mn tonnes. Despite ongoing challenges including a lack of fertiliser and low profitability, we believe that corn output will expand strongly on the low 2012 levels.

  • Coffee consumption growth to 2017: 4.7% to 1.38mn bags. After surging by 48.3% from 2007-2012 owing to a steep rise in imports, our demand forecast for the coming five years is more moderate.

  • Thailand Agribusiness Report Q3 2016
    Published: 18-May-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 74
    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......
  • Turkey Agribusiness Report Q3 2016
    Published: 11-May-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 66
    BMI View: We continue to favour the sugar sector in Turkey because of the strong growth potential of the country's confectionery industry and our belief that large changes to the country's sugar production quotas are likely to occur in the coming years. We forecast 2016 to be a turnaround key for the grains sector, with corn, wheat, and barley recovering from contractions following the drought in 2014. What is more, we expect growth in grains production and consumption to......
  • Zambia Agribusiness Report Q3 2016
    Published: 11-May-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 70
    BMI View: Beyond the current El Niño-related drought, the Zambian agricultural sector will experience stable but limited growth over the next five years. The country will remain a prime supplier of corn and sugar to the south-west Africa region. Continued kwacha weakness will translate into a higher cost of imported inputs, thereby reducing fertiliser use across Zambian crops. On the consumption side, volatile corn output and limited entry from other producers on the suga......
  • Algeria Agribusiness Report Q3 2016
    Published: 11-May-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 62
    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......
  • Russia Agribusiness Report Q3 2016
    Published: 11-May-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 63
    BMI View: Russia's poultry and pork sectors will perform strongly as consumer demand is growing and domestic production is looking to bridge the gap left by EU imports, which will not resume until H216. Wheat will outperform the grains complex out to 2020 due to elevated farmgate prices in rouble terms and strong opportunities on the domestic and export markets, which will maintain production incentives. The Russian dairy sector will benefit from growth momentum until 201......
  • Bangladesh Agribusiness Report Q3 2016
    Published: 04-May-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 65
    BMI View: We hold a cautious outlook towards the Bangladesh agriculture sector over the short term. The limited amount of arable land available for acreage expansion, as well as poor safety standards, will constrain growth over our forecast period. Structural problems still plague the industry, in particular the logistical challenges of food transportation within the country. Over the long term, we believe there is much more room for growth and improvement in sub-sectors ......
  • France Agribusiness Report Q3 2016
    Published: 04-May-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 73
    BMI View: Grains production will see limited growth over the next five years due to a high base from 2014/15 and only moderate increases in prices, while France also faces competition from other European producers on the export market. French dairy farmers will be among the EU's outperformers due to steady import demand for their cheese production. French meat production will suffer from continued weak demand from other EU countries, the traditional importers of French me......
  • Kenya Agribusiness Report Q3 2016
    Published: 04-May-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 59
    BMI View: Kenya will continue to underperform its regional peers with regard to the development of its agricultural sector. Despite COMESA granting a one-year 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 therefore to post very limited growth over the coming years. However, we continue to forecast steady coffee production growth due to relatively high domestic price......
  • Saudi Arabia Agribusiness Report Q3 2016
    Published: 04-May-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 40
    BMI View: Saudi Arabia will increasingly be dependent on grains imports, as the country has decided to phase out domestic grains production in a bid to preserve the country's water supply. The government has not abandoned its strategy of self-sufficiency in poultry and has been ramping up incentives to expand production capacity. This strategy has paid off, as the three major producers in the sector have all started heavy investment initiatives. We believe Saudi Arabia wi......
