The USDA FAS identified government price ceilings for UAE’s poultry sector as a factor impeding production by local producers.

Herd sizes are declining as the cost of feed grains and fertilized eggs is rising. Over the next two years, UAE poultry production is expected to recover gradually from 40,000 tons in 2021 to 44,000 tons in 2022 and 46,000 tons next year.

However, poultry consumption in the UAE is projected to remain strong, increasing its reliance on frozen food imports, which could reach 418,000 tonnes.

Most of the imported products are re-exported to other parts of the Arabian Gulf. The FAS notes that the UAE imports almost all the corn and soybeans it needs for livestock feed due to its unfavorable climate for grain production.
