Augmentation des utilisations et baisse de la production mondiale de céréales 2018-2019 (FAO)

Augmentation des utilisations et baisse de la production mondiale de céréales 2018-2019 (FAO) | MED-Amin network | Scoop.it

Date de publication: 03/05/2018

D’après les premières prévisions de la FAO concernant la campagne de commercialisation 2018-2019, l’offre de céréales devrait être suffisante pour répondre aux besoins de consommation. Les réserves mondiales de céréales devraient diminuer, une baisse qui devrait surtout concerner le maïs. Les premiers éléments indiquent également une contraction des échanges mondiaux de céréales par rapport au niveau record de 2017-2018, mais celle-ci devrait être minime, en raison d’une forte demande à l’importation, en particulier pour l’orge, le blé et le riz.

USDA Decreases World Wheat Production on Dry Conditions

USDA Decreases World Wheat Production on Dry Conditions | MED-Amin network | Scoop.it

By Stephanie Bryant-Erdmann (USW Market Analyst), 12/07/2018.

USDA raised 2018/19 U.S. wheat production to 51.2 million metric tons (MMT), up 8 percent from 2017/18, if realized. While wheat production is expected to increase in the United States, it is expected to fall globally in 2018/19. USDA forecast 2018/19 total world wheat production at 736 MMT, down 3 percent from the year prior, if realized. The largest decrease is expected in Russia, which is forecast to produce 67.0 MMT, down 18.0 MMT from 2017/18 due to poor growing conditions. Wheat production is also expected to fall in the European Union (EU) and Australia due to dry conditions.

While 2018/19 world wheat production is expected to fall for the first time in 5 years, world wheat consumption is expected to grow 5.23 MMT from the previous year to 749 MMT. If realized, world wheat consumption will outpace world wheat production by 12.6 MMT in 2018/19. With consumption outpacing production, world wheat ending stocks are expected to fall to 261 MMT, down 5 percent from 2017/18. The reduction in ending stocks puts the 2018/19 global stocks-to-use ratio (excluding China) just under 20 percent, which is the lowest level since 2007/08.
