China’s dairy imports grow: the EU gains market share (even in cheese)

Chinese dairy imports continue to grow: 2018 ended with an increase of +7.8% in volume and +14.5% in value. Regarding the political situation between Beijing and Washington, the tensions on tariffs slow down dairy exports from North America to China, with a decrease in milk equivalent that goes from 455,799 tons in 2017 to 385,728 tons in 2018. Oceania and the European Union benefit from this situation, with the latter moving from 1,377,870 tons in 2017 to 1,529,406 tons in 2018. Also significant is the increase in imports from Belarus, which in 2018 amounted to 8,108 tonnes of WMP and 25,218 tonnes of Whey. Overall, whey, packaged milk and WMP remain the main imported products. The Whole Milk Powder (WMP) recorded the largest increase, continuing the trend undertaken in 2017. Imports of Skimmed Milk Powder (SMP) also increased significantly, albeit at a slower rate than the previous year. The commercial flow of SMP from Europe to China was very positive: +20.2%, which brings the EU-28 to 30% of the market share. The only two products which did not record a significant increase were Cheese, stable, and Cream, which after the increase in 2017 had lower imports, but still remaining at high
