STATUS

World poultry production
to top 128 million tons in 2019
Poultry meat forecast to see slight increase in metric tonnage
compared with overall drop in meat production
ALYSSA CONWAY

P

oultry meat production reached nearly
125 million metric
tons in 2018 and is
forecast to increase
nearly 3% in 2019, according
to projections from the Food
and Agriculture Organization
(FAO) (Table 1). FAO attributes the overall slowdown
in meat production to animal
disease and the increases to
better technology, improving
productivity.
On trend, developing
countries captured the majority of poultry meat production and consumption and
imports in 2018, and are
predicted to do so in 2019
as well, with changing diets
and growing economies.
(Figure 1).
During the past 15 years
from 2004-19, poultry production rose nearly 44 million metric tons compared to
46 million metric tons in the
period 2003-18, according
to FAO reports (Figure 2).
