In 2023, poultry production in China is expected to remain stable at 14.3 million metric tons. White feather broilers' share of overall chicken production is expected to increase, while yellow feather broiler production is expected to decline. In 2023, imports (excluding paws) are expected to reach 750 thousand MT from lower 2022 rates. China currently restricts imports of select U.S.poultry and poultry products from several locations based on concerns over highly pathogenic avian influenza. China's exports in 2023 are expected to increase 5 percent to 575 thousand MT as demand resumes in mature and new markets.

 

FAS China estimates for 2022 chicken meat do not vary from USDA Official estimates for production, supply, and distribution.

 

Production: In 2023, chicken production is expected to remain steady at 14.3 million metric tons (MMT). Demand for affordable chicken products, particularly white broiler meat, is expected to grow in 2023. Consumers' shift towards a more diverse protein diet will drive demand for white broiler products and drive increases in production. Yellow broiler production will be negatively affected by consumer price sensitivity and China's ongoing COVID-19 restrictions. 

 

Consumption: In 2023, demand for poultry products, particularly white broiler products, is expected to increase from the institutional and retail sectors to reach 14.475 MMT, a 1 percent increase over 2022.

 

Imports: In 2023, imports of chicken meat (excluding paws) are projected to reach 750 thousand MT after declining in 2022. In2022, highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAl) outbreaks limited imports from multiple countries, including the United States - the second largest exporter of poultry products to China.
