Market Overview

The market for compound feed in Egypt is projected to register a CAGR of 3.8%, during the forecast period. According to the AllTech feed survey, the country is equipped with 100 feed mills with the total compound feed production of 7.4 million metric tons in 2019 out of which 3.1 million metric tons are for broilers, 164 million metric tons for layers, 2.0 million metric tons for dairy cows, and 0.6 million metric ton for aqua. The compound feed market for beef and swine segment in Egypt is minimal in 2019 as the country is not likely to feed these animals with compound feed as the localities of Egypt are against consuming the beef meat. In Egypt, the number of modern dairy and feed farms has increased considerably. The majority of the domestic meat consumed in the country is locally produced, making Egypt an attractive market for the supply and import of compound feed.

Key Market Trends

Growing Regulated Poultry Industry in Egypt

Food and Agricultural Organization along with the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) has come up with 'Africa Sustainable Livestock 2050' which mainly focuses on the development of the livestock in Africa and states as Poultry is one of the main agricultural industries in Egypt. It contributes 10% of agricultural value-added, with the country producing over 1 million tons of poultry meat. According to studies, Per capita consumption is approximately 15 kg of poultry meat per year. The sector is highly heterogeneous, comprising of large integrated, specialized producers and at least 11 million households keeping chickens and other poultry. Stakeholders have identified two main poultry production systems in Egypt, intensive/commercial, and extensive/household. As per the livestock production system spotlight report published by FAO along with USAID, There are approximately 30,000 registered intensive poultry farms and approximately the same number of unregistered farms. The majority, almost 80%, are located in Lower Egypt. The intensive poultry system is pivotal for the supply of affordably-priced animal protein to the Egyptian population. However, it is highly dependent on importing feed mainly maize and soya bean and other inputs and equipment, which makes consumer prices highly volatile.

Increased Beef Consumption

Egyptian beef consumption is driven by the availability of affordably priced beef. According to the USDA report, Most Egyptian consumers are of lower incomes. Egypt’s meat-centric food culture remains unchanged and any variation in the consumption rate is due to beef affordability. Beef consumption is fairly tied to cost, rather than recommended daily intake of protein. The Egyptian military and the Ministry of Supply and Internal Trade (MOSIT) are expanding their beef distribution channels, increasing the availability of affordably priced beef. Egyptians consume red meat from locally produced fresh beef, imported ready-for-slaughter cattle, imports of frozen buffalo meat from India, and frozen beef mainly from Brazil. More affluent consumers, however, view frozen imported beef as being an inferior product. Their opinion is premised on the fact that the bulk of frozen imported beef is low-quality cuts sold at government outlets at discounted prices.
