The “China
Beef Cattle Industry Investment Analysis Report (2017 – 2018)”
report has been added to’s

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

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

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
