World Food Supply and Demand Projections to 2019 -World Food Supply and Demand Model projection Results-

Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries (Policy Research Institute, MAFF) has conducted the prospective analysis of The World Food Supply and Demand Projections to 2019 from a quantitative standpoint, using the world food supply and demand model developed as the project study of the world food supply and demand since 2008. The following is the result.

 

1. What are the ”World Food Supply and Demand Projections”?

The World Food Supply and Demand projections are focused on the world food supply and demand in the next decade from a quantitative standpoint, using the analysis model based on the world economic prediction.

MAFF has released the World Food Supply and Demand projections five times and from last year, we decided to release the projections annually based on the world food supply and demand model developed by Policy Research Institute, MAFF of Japan.

 

2. Projection results

Although the global economy experienced a temporary stagnation from 2008 in the wake of the financial crisis, economies in emerging and developing countries are expected to continue growing highly. From the medium‐term perspectives, meanwhile, the world’s food supply and demand will likely remain tight, since crop demands not only for food and feed use but for biofuel use increase in the world primarily in Asia and emerging countries due to the population and income growth, resulting in low ending stock levels of crops and other agricultural commodities. Food prices are thus likely to exceed those before 2007 levels and increase further.

(1) The consumption of crop will reach 2.6 billion tons by 2019, increasing by approximately  500 million tons for 12 years. The consumption of wheat and rice will increase due to mainly the increasing food use while the consumption of maize will increase due to the increasing feed use and feedstock for bio-ethanol

(2) The production of each item cannot catch up with the increasing consumption. The ratio of ending stock will fall.

(3) The crop price raise by 31~46% in nominal price and by 6~17% in real price compared to 2007.

(4) The tendency of uneven distribution in crop trading keeps expanding.

1, In Asia, Africa and Middle East, the production of crops cannot catch up with the increasing consumption. Therefore, net import increases.

2, Europe, South America and Oceania will increase net export and respond to increasing net import.

3, North America keeps decreasing net export. In Latin America, net import area will transform itself into net export area.

(5) The consumption of meat will increase due to the increasing annual consumption per capita. The price seems to rise by 41~42% in nominal price and by 7~12% in real price.
