Global soybean marketing and trade: A situation and outlook analysis


Book chapter analyzing the dramatic changes in global soybean production and trade in recent years, driven by the increasing demand for soybean meal as a component of animal feeds. Covers trade volumes and major exporters and importers, discusses the drivers and details of the global trade in soybean products – grain, meal, and oil – and examines the factors and constraints that will determine major future dynamics. Underlines how these factors and constraints are likely to favor large producers, to the detriment of small-scale farmers, unless approaches can be found to enhance local production and consumption while enhancing smallholder access to markets.
