BMI View: Egypt will face growing production deficits in grains and meat as it focuses on export-oriented cash crops while the dairy sector will benefit from sustained private investment. Out to 2019, an expanding population and rising disposable incomes will support consumption growth in sugar and dairy products. Moreover, rice and beef consumption will benefit from the greater range of products available under the new food subsidy scheme.

Key Forecasts

  • Wheat production growth to 2018/19: 4.8 % to 8.6mn tonnes. Wheat production will be constrained by a greater amount of arable land being devoted to export-oriented crops.

  • Rice consumption growth to 2019: 10.3% to 4.4 mn tonnes. This will come from lower bread consumption induced by the new food subsidy scheme.

  • Sugar consumption growth to 2019: 10.3 % to 3.2mn tonnes. An expanding population and rising disposable incomes will stimulate demand for soft drinks and confectionary goods.

  • Poultry production growth to 2018/19: 13.9 % to 1.1mn tonnes. The recent avian flu outbreak will only cause temporary disruptions in the poultry sector as it is largely due to rural backyard poultry infections, leaving industrial production intact.

  • Real GDP growth: 4 .1% in 2016 (up from 2.6% in 2015).

  • Consumer price inflation: 9.0% average in 2016 (down from 11.0% y-o-y in 2015).

  • BMI universe agribusiness market value: 3.7% increase to USD29.9bn in 2015/16; forecast to increase on average 2.9% annually between 2014/15 and 2018/19.

Industry Outlook

Better water management practices and higher-yielding wheat varieties will support 2015/16 wheat output. Out to 2018/19, wheat production will be constrained by a greater amount of arable land being devoted to export-oriented crops. Over the period, wheat consumption will be impacted by the country's new food subsidy scheme inducing the diversification of diets away from bread. At the same time, growth in poultry production will support corn consumption.

Poultry and beef production will post solid growth in 2015/16 due to a marginal impact from the recent avian flu outbreak and renewed imports of cattle from Australia. Out to 2019, the poultry sector will grow faster as it is less exposed to a weak Egyptian pound and higher feed costs since it requires less input per animal than beef.

Egyptian milk production in 2015/16 will grow strongly as multinational food and drink firms increase investment into the region. Similarly, out to 2018/19 private investment will fuel further production growth. Over the period, the recovery in the Egyptian economy will help disposable incomes rise and therefore increase demand for more value-added dairy goods.

Egyptian sugar production will slightly increase in 2015/16 as sugarcane acreage remains stable and sugar beet acreage grows at the expense of cotton. Out to 2019, production will strengthen as the government is keen to expand sugar output in the country. However, an expanding population and rising disposable incomes will stimulate demand for sugar, particularly imported sugar. Therefore, Egyptian imports of raw sugar will remain on an uptrend in the coming years.
