Brazil: soybean export volume 2006-2019

Overall, however, the amount of soybean exports from the South American country has been on an increasing trend over the past decade, with exports valued at approximately 26 billion U.S. dollars in 2019.

Meeting demand in China

The South American country has likewise become China’s foremost supplier, surging ahead of the United States in recent years to provide more than three quarters of China’s soybean imports. Additionally, as a result of escalating trade wars, China’s recent tariff increase on U.S. soybean imports has led food and agricultural industries in the Asian country to seek out a cheaper alternative to produce livestock feed and soybean oil.

The area planted with soybean in the country has consistently expanded throughout the past decade. Production is likewise expected to increase over 20 percent by 2028. Compared with other Brazilian agricultural products, soybean currently holds a dominant share of production value — more than that of sugar cane, corn, and coffee combined.
