Top Growth Opportunities: Meat in China

Summary

China is one of the strongest economies in the world and is the world's largest trading power. Although China is forecast to have a decrease in GDP growth from 7% in 2016 to 6.5% to 2017, it remains a favourable economy for international and domestic FMCG companies to enter and explore.

China’s meat market saw a slow growth of 2.2% between 2011 and 2016, and is forecast to see this growth strengthen into 2021 to a CAGR of 4.2%. Whilst strong, this is among the lower CAGR’s of the top 10 growth opportunity markets, but the large size of China’s meat sector makes it a very attractive market regardless. China is a stable market, and favourable economic conditions have facilitated growth through increased certainty for business and consumer spending confidence. Technological gains, a very large consumer base, and stronger spending power among consumers makes China a lucrative market for a variety of sectors. The country is also insulated from the numerous political issues which have trouble the West in recent years.

China is the second largest Meat market in value after the US, worth US$200.4 billion in 2016. During 2011-2016 it registered a slow growth CAGR of 2.4%, which is the result of slower GDP growth in the country since 2010. However, the market is expected to see a stronger growth of 4.2% CAGR over the next five years to 2021, presenting more opportunities for premiumization in the Meat market.

The biggest threat to the Meat market in China however comes from food safety issues after several related scandals in recent years. These incidents have seriously impacted the reputation of the domestic food industry as a whole and raised consumer scepticism towards food products being sold in the country. On the other hand, this also drives the premiumization of the market towards the offering of safe, high quality products as consumers are more willing to buy from trusted brands and manufacturers, as well as shop at licensed retailers.

China ranks amongst the smallest markets in the global Meat sector in terms of per capita expenditure. Though the population and disposable income are increasing in the country, the Chinese Meat market does not offer much opportunity in terms of per capita expenditure in US dollar terms.

Recent cases of food safety scandals in China have left the nation extra conscious when it comes to food safety. Therefore, Chinese consumers are willing to pay more towards safe and trusted brands via more trusted retailers in order to get peace of mind.
