Share Article

"Value Chain Analysis of China Pig Industry Edition (1)” is the new market research report added to the online library of China’s pork demand and output are predicted to increase in the coming five years.

China’s pig industry is the largest in the world with both output and consumption accounting for about half of the world total. Despite of its large size, China’s pig industry has been self-sufficient with rather small import and export shares in global trade, though there might be changes in future.

China’s pig industry is now at a transforming stage from Stage 2, the processing period of primary products, with key features of low value-added products losing competitiveness, production pattern under adjustment and processing playing a leading role among the chain, to Stage 3, the processing period of high-class products, characterized for the emergence of high value-added products.

Key features of the whole chain:

Very low industry concentration rate from pig farming, pig slaughter and pork processing. Pig farming in particular is unlikely to increase significantly in a short period. The low concentration rate of pig farming has gradually become a bottleneck for the upgrading of China’s pig industry, especially when the two downstream segments’ industry concentration rate have witnessed a fast growth in recent years. The number of players in pig farming is astoundingly large.

Vertical industry integration by leading players in every segment has become increasingly apparent, to lower risks, ensure supply, or increase profit. Such a trend is predicted to continue in the coming years and worth doing further observation on which player will stand out among all integrator's.

Stability and modernization are the top two policy priorities of Chinese government. However, the institutional coordination inadequacy has become a bottleneck for the effective management.

Key features of each segment:

Feed: largest output in the world and fast growth; largest type being pig feed followed by a poultry feed; low concentration rate with a huge but declining number of players

Pig farming: key pig producing areas located in major grain producing areas; low industrialization and concentration rate but with rapidly shrinking household farms and expanding intensive farms and large-scale farming enterprises; increasingly competitive intensive farming since 2009; weak pricing capability to upstream and downstream industries due to low industry concentration rate

Pig slaughter: low industry concentration rate and severe overcapacity but both improving; low mechanization rate; slim profit; most large players also large processors

Pork and meat processing: chilled meat and LTMP are future trends; pork production concentrating in pig production regions and large pork consumption regions; leading players increasingly keen on industry chain integration with huge investment needed
