The Egg Farming industry has displayed strong growth over the past five years. Rising egg production, higher domestic egg prices and improved product mixes have helped to grow revenue over the period. Industry revenue is projected to post 7.0% annualised growth over the five years through 2014-15, to reach $659.6 million. This figure is slightly inflated by a revenue decline in 2009-10, combined with growth spikes in 2010-11 and 2012-13. Modest growth of 2.9% is forecast for 2014-15.
The industry has started to shift away from cage eggs in favour of barn-laid and free-range eggs over the past five years.
Companies in this industry farm poultry for production of eggs, and hatch egg-breed chicks.
The report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecast, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
