DEMAND PROJECTIONS FOR POULTRY PRODUCTS AND POULTRY FEEDS IN BANGLADESH

The analysis carries out demand projections for poultry products and poultry feeds in Bangladesh over the next 20 years. Using separate rural and urban consumption data and income elasticities of demand, the national consumption of eggs is projected to be 5,866 million for 2020. The corresponding consumption of meat is projected to be 307 thousand tons. The estimated use of grains (wheat and maize) as poultry feeds ranges from 867 to 898 thousand tons for the year 2020, depending on the approach adopted. The requirement of wheat as poultry feed is only 8 per cent of the total domestic production while the requirement of maize as poultry feed is as high as nearly 8 times its domestic production.
