Market Report, "Egypt Agribusiness Report Q4 2014", published

Egypt remains the world's largest wheat importer, meaning that the recent sell-off in grain prices will benefit the country, though low prices will be limited by Egypt's weak pound and low foreign reserves. The country is in the process of reforming its food subsidy programme, in an effort to make the process more efficient. The sugar industry is benefiting from a tight local ma rket and higher domestic prices, and we believe the livestock and dairy industries will continue to recove r strongly from the recent foot-and-mouth disease outbreak, especially in a context of lower grain prices.

Key Forecasts

* Wheat production growth to 2017/18: 9.4% to 9.3mn tonnes. This will largely be the result of government efforts to increase area planted and yields in the coming years.
* Sugar consumption growth to 2018: 5.6% to 3.0mn tonnes. This will be driven by growth in the local confectionery and soft drinks industries on the back of population and income growth.
* Beef & veal production growth to 2017/18: 33.4% to 380,100 tonnes. The recovery of herds - linked to imports of live cattle, systematic vaccination of cattle and lower feed prices - will help production recover over the medium term.
* Real GDP growth: 2.2% year-on-year (y-o-y) in 2014 (flat at 2.2% y-o-y in 2013).
* Consumer inflation: average 10.5% y-o-y in 2014 (up from 9.4% y-o-y in 2013).
* BMI universe agribusiness market value: 5.9% y-o-y decrease to USD27.5bn in 2013/14; forecast to increase on average 3.4% annually between 2014/15 and 2017/18.

Industry Outlook

With the wheat and corn harvests completed in Egypt, we maintain our estimates for wheat output to reach 8.7mn tonnes in 2013/14 and corn output to come in at 5.8mn tonnes.
