Chicken meat: Brazil's main export markets in the 1st four months of 2013

It seems the top 10 importers of Brazilian chicken meat have remained faithful to the supplier. The ranking is made up of four Middle Eastern, three Asian, two European and one South American country. Their faithfulness is demonstrated by the volume of purchases, which was up 1.35%, while the total volume exported by Brazil in the first four months was almost 5% down .But within the group there are large differences compared with the same period in 2012.
Of most concern are China and Hong Kong - in reality a single market. In 2012, in the same four months, together they acquired a volume that made them the main importer of Brazilian chicken, ahead of Saudi Arabia and Japan. Revenue was only surpassed by Saudi Arabia. Separately, they ended 2012 4th and 5th positions.
In 2013, China and Hong Kong ended the first four months in 5th and 6th positions, as volumes imported by them fell by 22.5%. And the fall in revenue, at almost 18%, was not proportional because the average price of the product has improved.
In four months, the volume imported by Saudi Arabia was almost a quarter up and revenue was up by almost 42%. Japan increased its imports by 27%, and revenue was up by almost 40%.
Of course, this increases the dependence of the sector on these two markets. A year ago, both accounted for 25% of Brazil's revenue from chicken exports. Now they account for one-third of the total.
