Central America Agribusiness Report Q2 2013

Includes 3 FREE quarterly updates

The Central America coffee sector is set to see strong production in 2012/13 on the back of large plantings
and better investment capacity. However, we believe low global prices could discourage production in the
coming years, putting downside risks to the development of the sector in the medium term. The region is
generally dependent on imports for corn, and we expect the production deficit to widen over our forecast
period. That said, Central America is expected to remain self sufficient in sugar and even increase its
potential for sugar exports, with the industry having potential to attract investment over the medium term.
Coffee production growth to 2016/17: 24.1% to 16.2mn bags. As the region becomes more attractive to
investors, we expect the coffee sector to see increased export opportunities. That said, there are major
downside risks to this view, as the region will continue to be exposed to security risks, disease outbreaks
and adverse weather patterns.
• Corn consumption growth to 2016/17: 11.1% to 6.8mn tonnes. Demand growth for corn will far
outpace production in Central America, affecting prices and keeping the area import-dependent for its
grain needs.
