2016 - Ukrainian Poultry, Egg, Feed Report by U.S. Commercial Service
U.S. COMMERCIAL SERVICE KYIV
The U.S. Commercial Service in Kyiv’s Special Report, “Ukrainian Poultry, Egg, and Feed Industry – Business Outlook Report,” was developed in 2016 to provide U.S. equipment suppliers with information to consider in assessing the Ukrainian market. This report includes: market overviews of each sub-sector; market insight from small and medium sized producers regarding upcoming performance and modernization plans as well as factors that influence equipment purchase decisions; and finally an overview of Ukraine’s macroeconomic indicators and their impact on the poultry, egg, and feed sub-sectors.
Taken together, the information reveals that despite recent and dramatic events in Ukraine that affected the country’s safety and overall economic output, Ukraine’s agriculture sector has buttressed the economy. In the face of adversity, it exhibited growth, and when traditional trade relationships were cut off, Ukrainian agricultural companies pivoted and found new trading partners and routes. It also shows that Ukraine’s entrance to the European Union will stimulate growth and investments in modernization, thereby creating opportunities for U.S. equipment suppliers to enter the market and compete with European equipment suppliers
