Philippines: Poultry Farming Industry Stats (Updated for 2021)

Philippines Poultry Farming

It’s official…poultry farming in The Philippines has officially taken first place as the fastest-growing meat production sector (+3.3% Q1 2020).

Here are the top poultry farming stats. Including production volumes, farmgate prices, livestock inventory per head, type of chicken breakdown and more.

Let’s jump right in…

Volume of poultry production


The volume of a country’s domestic poultry production is a good benchmark for poultry demand. It shows you the effect of the ‘pull’ force of domestic poultry consumption.

Here are the chicken meat and egg production stats…

Chicken meat production

01. In Q3 (July-September) 2020 the total volume of chicken production was 431.77 million metric tons. (PSA)

02. Compared to the previous year (same quarter), the Q3 2020 total volume of chicken production is -7.2% lower. (PSA.)

03. The total volume of chicken production in 2019 was 1.93 million metric tons, liveweight. (PSA.)

04. The top three chicken meat-producing regions in 2019 were (in descending order): Central Luzon with 699.66 thousand metric tons (liveweight), Calabarzon with 343.26 thousand metric tons (liveweight), Northern Mindanao with 170.02 thousand metric tons (liveweight). (PSA.)

05. The 2019 figure for gross value of chicken production (at current prices) was PhP 173.94 billion. (PSA.)

06. The 2019 figure for gross value of chicken production (at current prices) was PhP 173.94 billion. (PSA.)

11. The top three chicken egg-producing regions in 2019 were (in descending order): Calabarzon with 174,940 metric tons (liveweight), Central Luzon with 118,180 metric tons (liveweight), Central Visayas with 53,860 metric tons (liveweight). (PSA.)

12. These top three chicken egg-producing regions combined make up 59.5% of the total egg production figure for 2019. (PSA.)

Poultry farmgate prices


By definition, the farmgate price is what the producer gets paid for their efforts. A critical figure to have at hand when profit planning your poultry enterprise.

Here are the chicken and egg farmgate prices…

Chicken meat farmgate prices

13. The average farmgate price for broiler meat in a commercial farm within Q3 2020 was PhP 74.05 per kilogram, liveweight (12.5% lower than the corresponding price in 2019). (PSA.)

14. The highest farmgate price for broiler meat in a commercial farm within Q3 2020 was noted in September PhP 80.28 per kilogram, liveweight. (PSA.)

15. The lowest farmgate price for broiler meat in a commercial farm within Q3 2020 was noted in August PhP 66.91 per kilogram, liveweight. (PSA.)

Chicken egg farmgate prices

16. The average farmgate price for a chicken egg of a commercial farm in Q3 2020 was PhP 5.71 per piece (10.5% higher than the corresponding price in 2019). (PSA.)

17. The highest farmgate price for a chicken egg of a commercial farm in Q3 2020 was noted in July at PhP 5.78 per piece. (PSA.)

18. The lowest farmgate price for a chicken egg of a commercial farm in Q3 2020 was noted in September at PhP 5.62 per piece. (PSA.)

Chicken meat inventory


Poultry inventory figures give a good indication of the relative gross potential of production.

Here’s how broiler, layer and native hybrid breeds line up…

19. Total chicken inventory as of April 2020 was 185.58 million birds. (PSA.)

20. The native/improved chicken inventory as of April 2020 was 82.23 million birds. (PSA.)

22. There was an inventory of 41.38 million layer chicken as of April 2020. (PSA.)

Day-old chick imports


Day old chicks are the seed of your poultry farm. They hold all the production potential for chicken meat and egg industry.

This is a look at the day-old chick import demand…

23. A total of 1,005,021 broiler day-old chicks were imported in 2016 (of which 274,821 was grandparent stock and 730,200 parent stock). (PSA.)

24. There were 928,084 broiler parent stock hatching eggs imported in 2016. (PSA.)
