Demand for Feedgrain in China: Implications for Foodgrain Consumption and Trade
AbstractAs Chinese consumption of feed-related food increases, demand for feed and hence feedgrain has attracted a lot of attention both inside and outside China. This is not only because of food security concern but also due to the potential implication for international trade given the sheer size of the Chinese market. This paper deals with some of the issues associated with China's demand for feedgrain. In particular, it sheds light on the relationship between feedgrain requirement and foodgrain consumption in China. It especially focuses on examining the impact of economic growth and demographic changes on demand for feedgrain in the near future. The findings are used to draw implications for international grain trade.
