USDA: Brazil to uphold significant market share in meats

Another segment in which Brazil already stands out and could improve in the next decade is in meats, according to the long-term forecasts made by the USDA. One of the biggest global exporters of beef, Brazil will continue to hold a significant market share in this market. Brazil's exports of the product will total 1.887 million tons (carcass equivalent) in 2022, or 19.8% of the market. The USDA estimates Brazil's sales in 2012 at 1.394 million tons, or 19.7% of the market.

According to USDA statistics, Brazil ended last year as the second largest beef exporter in the world, after India (1.680 million ton) and ahead of Australia (1.380 million tons) and the USA (1.120 million tons). In 2022, Brazil will remain behind India (2.865 million tons) and ahead of its current main rivals.

In chicken, Brazil will extend its leadership in global exports over the next decade. According to the USDA, Brazil will export 4.765 million tons in 2022, or nearly 42% of a total volume of 11.420 million tons to be sold by the major exporters that year. The USDA calculates Brazil's exports in 2012 at 3.633 million tons, or 38.6% of the market.
