Pig production

The forecast for pig production in Mexico in 2020 is of 19.9 million heads, whilst in 2019 it is of 19.25 million heads. The greater vertical integration of the farms, together with the adoption of new technologies and better biosecurity measures will help the industry to grow by approximately 3% in 2020.

Almost 70% of pig production is concentrated in five states: Jalisco, with 21% of the production, followed by Sonora (18%), Puebla (11%), Yucatán (10%) and Veracruz (9%).

Pork production

Regarding pork production, it is expected that in 2020 it reaches 1.4 million tonnes, with a high demand by the consumers, that will favour a greater production. Pork is still the second most important animal protein source for the Mexican consumer after fowl. It is expected that pork production in 2019 reaches 1.38 million tonnes.

In the first six months of 2019, the domestic production of pork has exceeded that reached in the same period in 2018 by 6.4%, although it is expected that production stabilises with an increase by 4% by the end of this year.

Pork consumption

In 2020 a consumption of approximately 2.5 million tonnes is expected, whilst in 2019 the forecast is of 2.4 million tonnes. In 2018, the domestic consumption of pork represented more than 28% of the animal protein intake in Mexico. Fowl represents more than 60% of the animal protein consumption in Mexico, and they still lead protein intake. Nevertheless, the Mexican pork industry expects that pork consumption increases and reaches 32% of the protein intake by the end of 2019, because the stable prices of pork make it a more attractive option for the consumers. Price still is the main factor regarding the options when the Mexican consumers have to buy.
