China Dairy and Products Annual

Overall dairy consumption in China is expected to increase due to changes in Chinese consumer diets resulting from urbanization. Decreasing domestic production (34.7 million metric tons, a 1 percent decrease from 2018) will result in increased demand for imported dairy products, leading to increased imports of fluid milk (up 13 percent year on year), whole milk powder (up 15 percent), and non-fat dry milk powder (or skim milk powder) (up 11 percent). However, in July of this year, China placed additional tariffs of 25 percent on the majority of U.S.-origin dairy products, complicating U.S. dairy exports to this growing market.
