Chinese Consume Eggs In A Large Amount

In 2015, the output volume of poultry eggs reached 29.99 million tons with an increase of 3.6% in China. Hen eggs accounted for most market share of the poultry egg production in China. In 2015, the total consumption volume of poultry eggs exceeded 29 million tons with the rising trend year after year. The consumption of poultry eggs can be divided into industrial consumption (clean sterilized fresh eggs, food industry, etc.), household consumption (edible eggs) and outdoor consumption (eggs consumed in restaurants).

In general, the consumption of poultry eggs is still dominated by household consumption in China. China's processed egg products with simple product structure mainly include traditional processed products such as marinated egg, salted egg and Pidan which is lack of innovation. The output volume of high added-value products such egg liquid and egg powder is relatively small. However, in the long run, there are large market opportunities for the egg processing industry in such fields as catering, biology and pharmaceutical application. In 2015, the sales revenue of egg processing industry exceeded CNY 30 billion with an increase of above 10% YOY.

There is large output volume of poultry eggs in China and mainly sold in domestic market. The export size is relatively small. The relatively cheap low-end products are major export products. According to statistics, China's total export value of all egg products was only USD 300 million in 2015, which was much lower than that of the developed countries such as the U.S. In addition, China possessed the small market share in the world's egg product trade, which was lack of international competitiveness. China's exported eggs are mainly produced in Shandong, Liaoning, Hubei and Guangdong with major export markets in Asia.
