BMI View: We take a mixed view of the Nigerian agribusiness sector . The cocoa industry assumes a greater importance in the country's medium - term economic future now that oil revenues can no longer be relied upon as an easy source of foreign exchange . We remain cautiously optimistic that cocoa plantations and processing facilities will continue to receive the public and private sector support needed to move forward . Poultry, dairy, sugar , rice and wheat consumption are expected to continue to depend very largely on imports to meet demand , although a much greater percentage of demand for each of these commoditie s (apart from wheat) could potentially be met by local production. Poor infrastructure, lack of access to inputs and basic technology, fragmentation and a lack of access to finance and expertise are among the factors that lead us to take a pessimistic view of the medium - term prospects for self-sufficiency.

Key BMI Forecasts

  • Cocoa production growth to 2019/20: 63.2 % to 309,800 tonnes. Global prices will remain sufficiently elevated to stimulate investment from government and private sector bodies.

  • Corn consumption growth to 2020: 7.6 % to 8.1mn tonnes. Weaker demand from the livestock industry will hold down consumption growth.

  • 2016 real GDP growth: 3.8% (up from 3.3% in 2015).

  • 2016 consumer price inflation (ave): 9.2% (down from 9.1% in 2015).

Latest Updates & Structural Trends

  • The Nigerian cocoa processing industry is facing a crisis, according to reports in local media outlets. Farmgate prices for cocoa beans increased by as much as a fifth over the course of 2015 and domestic processors are further disadvantaged by currency movements and government restrictions on dollar purchases. While international buyers have gained from the appreciation of the US dollar against the Nigerian naira in unofficial currency markets, local processors are struggling to compete and have called for the introduction of export taxes on cocoa beans.

  • The Nigerian Central Bank is to make available low interest loans to rice farmers with a financial package worth a total NGN20bn (USD100.4mn). The Anchor Borrowers Programme aims to develop the capacity of small-scale growers to produce high quality rice for the domestic market. The government of Nigeria is also in talks with China to finance and build 40 rice mills, according to Reuters.

  • We expect the naira to further depreciate against the US dollar over the course of 2016. As a result, Nigerian households will pay more for imported goods, particularly rice, wheat and sugar, and consumption growth will be curtailed.
