Evaluating the Effects of Nontariff Measures on Poultry Trade

Poultry is the second-most consumed meat in the world and is the most traded livestock commodity by volume. Poultry trade is expected to continue to grow over the next decade driven by rising demand in emerging markets. However, poultry trade is among the most heavily protected agricultural sectors in terms of tariffs and tariff rate quotas, as well as nontariff measures (NTMs). This report combines data on World Trade Organization (WTO) poultry NTM notifications with domestic and international poultry trade flows to estimate whether and to what extent different types of NTMs affect the value of poultry trade.
