WATT Global Media recently released the 2018 edition of the WATT Executive Guide to World Poultry Trends, featuring new data and projections for the global poultry meat and egg markets.

WATT Poultry Trends offers exclusive market reports and at-a-glance charts covering production, consumption, trade and more relating to industry sectors, countries and world regions.

World poultry production is at nearly 123 million tons in 2018, and it remains the most produced meat as lead by the US, China and Brazil. This year, the sector modestly expanded with a forecasted 1.6% increase. Changing diets in developing countries and strengthening economies are increasing production worldwide, but at a slower rate as population growth slows overall.

World egg production is up 18% reaching 74 million tons compared to 10 years ago with China, the US and India as the leading egg producing companies. This continues to be driven by rising rates of worldwide egg consumption.


"WATT Poultry Trends is the premier statistical reference for global poultry executives," says Terrence O'Keefe, Content Director. "Professionals rely on this unique source of data compiled into one place to guide them in forecasting, planning and budgeting for the year ahead."

Much of the data presented in the publication is available online in a mobile-friendly format from the Market Data section on WATTAgNet.com. Site visitors can access interactive charts by category and download the data sets to a computer as spreadsheets. Free website registration is required to download these files.
