This chapter describes the market situation and the latest set of quantitative medium-term projections for global and national meat markets for the ten-year period, 2014-23. It covers the developments expected in world and national meat production, use, trade and stocks. The quantitative projections are developed with the aid of the partial equilibrium Aglink-Cosimo model of world agriculture. The chapter also includes three boxes that describe the income-meat demand relationship across countries, the driving factors of India’s rise as the top bovine meat exporter and the importance of closing efficiency gaps in meat production. The chapter concludes with a discussion of some main issues and uncertainties that may have an impact on the medium-term outlook for meat. These include the uncertainties surrounding herd rebuilding in North America, animal disease outbreaks and the increasing trend in China to import meat.
