The longer term picture for cocoa remains positive and it is encouraging for the profitability of the segment that investment continues to pour into the domestic processing industry.

 Key Forecasts 

 *  Corn consumption growth to 2018/19: 19.1% to 2.0mn tonnes. Weak output growth in 2014 and 2015 has led us to revise down our forecast but in the longer term rising incomes and a growing population will see increased demand for the staple grain.
 *  Cocoa production growth to 2018/19: 45.9% to 306000 tonnes. Higher prices and increased government and private investment will drive the sector forwards.
 *  BMI universe agribusiness market value growth: 4.8% to USD7.2bn in 2015 (up from USD6.9bn in 2014; forecast to grow by an annual average rate of 6.5% to USD9.5bn in 2019).
 *  2015 real GDP growth: 4.0% (estimated at 5.1% in 2014; forecast to grow by an annual average rate of 5.2% between 2014 and 2019).
 *  2015 consumer price inflation: 2.6% average (3.2% in 2014).
