China's beef cattle industry is a small industry with a large market, having prominent opportunities for investment and integration.
This report will make an in-depth analysis of the development situation of domestic beef cattle industry in 2017, analyze the operation mode of key enterprises and summarize the investment trends of domestic enterprises and capital to assist enterprises, capital and insiders to more accurately grasp the operation trends and investment opportunities of international and domestic beef cattle industry and determine suitable development model and resources which urgently needs integration.
1. Huge terminal consumer market:
At present, China's annual consumption of beef is close to 8 million tons and the terminal consumption scale is near 400 billion yuan. China's meat consumption structure is increasingly diversified, the proportion of pork consumption in residents' diet declined slightly, and the consumption of beef is gradually rising for its characteristics of high protein and low fat.
As for beef consumption, there is a significant gap between China and Europe, the United States, Japan and South Korea, and China's market potential is prominent. Data show that China's per capita beef consumption is not only far behind that of the United States, and also is 3-7kg lower than that of Asia, Japan and South Korea.
From the perspective of supply & demand and economic laws, with the rising of residents' income level and urbanization rate, domestic beef terminal consumption market will maintain strong growth momentum.
2. The imbalance between supply and demand becomes more prominent, and it's difficult for domestic consumption to realize self-sufficiency:
The domestic beef industry is polarized, downstream consumers put forward higher requirements on the consumption volume and quality of beef, but upstream beef cattle raising still is small-scale farmers dominated, and it's difficult for backward production mode to meet market demand. So, China's import volume of beef through legal channels is increasing in recent years and has increased to more than 600,000 tons now from less than 10,000 tons in 2008.
At the same time, China has become the most affected area of smuggling beef, and about 1.5-2 million tons beef is smuggled into China annually according to the estimation of experts from the national beef cattle industry technical system.
It can be seen that China's imports and smuggling of beef account for about 30% of the total consumption, indicating that there is a huge gap of beef between supply and demand in China.
3. Lacking leading enterprises:
The operating data of relevant beef cattle enterprises listed on a stock exchange or the National Equities Exchange and Quotations are not ideal generally, and real brand leaders haven't yet appeared. Based on the characteristics of the domestic beef cattle industry and the competitive pressure of international beef, integrated enterprises, large-scale farms, beef slaughtering and processing enterprises and deep processing enterprises all are faced with the problems of low scale efficiency, low utilization rate, poor brand business capacity and overall weak profitability.
