Pork is a major variety of meat consumption in China so the pig industry plays a significant role in China's animal husbandry. In 2017, the production volume of pork reached 63.4 million tons in China, accounting for 63.4% of the total production volume of meat.
For many years, the number of pigs in China has always been the highest in the world. Based on the data, the number of pigs on hand kept growing before 2012. However, the number has been on the decline since 2013 for rising costs and it decreased by 2.1% at the end of 2014 compared to the highest level in 2012.
By the end of 2017, the number of pigs on hand reached 338 million, 8% lower than that in 2016. The number of pig slaughtered amounted to 688.1 million in 2017, with an increase of 0.5% over the previous year. From 2000 to 2014, the production volume of pork was on the increase in China, which exceeded 50 million tons in 2010 and then reached a new high of 56.71 million tons in 2014, with a proportion of 65.1% of the total.
However, the production volume has been stuck in sluggish growth since 2015. It amounted to 53.4 million tons in 2017, increasing by 0.8% compared to 2016. In recent years, with the promotion of standardized large-scale breeding, the number of standardized large-scale farms has increased sharply.
