Saudi Arabia: Poultry and Products Annual

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)

Broiler meat production in Saudi Arabia is expected to reach 760,000 MT in 2017, about 9 percent higher than USDA’s official estimate. Production is projected to increase slightly to 765,000 MT in 2018. Broiler meat consumption this year is estimated at 1.51 million MT, a decline of about 6 percent compared to the last year’s estimated consumption of 1.6 million MT and 4 percent higher than the official USDA estimate. The reduction in broiler meat consumption this year is due mainly to the departure of several thousand expats from the Kingdom. Total Saudi broiler meat imports in 2017 are expected decline to by about 11 percent to 790,000 MT compared to 2016. In 2016, Brazil supplied 84 percent of Saudi Arabia’s broiler meat imports of 886,000 MT, followed by France with 14 percent. The U.S. is a distant third with one percent of the market.
