Agricultural products generate 90% of export revenue from the ports of Paraná

Of the almost US$19.83 billion accumulated in 2021, about US$17.93 billion in agricultural products. Amount is 13.6% higher than in 2020.

The revenue generated by exports at the ports of Paraná is almost entirely from agribusiness. Of the almost US$19.83 billion accumulated with shipments in 2021, 90% – about US$17.93 billion – were in agricultural products. Of this amount, the soy complex and chicken account for more than half. Compared to the US$15.78 billion generated from agro exports in 2020, accumulated revenue in 2021 grew by 13.6%.

“We are a port that mainly serves the agribusiness not only in the State, but throughout Brazil”, comments the CEO of Portos do Paraná, Luiz Fernando Garcia. According to the manager of the public company that manages the ports of Paranaguá and Antonina, just over 60% of the revenue generated from exports is from Paraná production. “Next, the states that send the most products to be shipped through the Paraná terminals are Mato Grosso do Sul, São Paulo and Mato Grosso”, adds Garcia.

PRODUCTS – Data from the Ministry of Economy (Comex/Stat MDIC) and the Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock and Supply (Agrostat) still record that the products of the soy complex – grain, bran and oil -, shipped through the Paraná terminals generated revenue of almost US$8.86 billion.

Of meat exported by the Container Terminal of the Port of Paranaguá, approximately US$4.27 billion were exported, of which almost US$3.1 billion were chicken. Other important items that generated export revenues through the ports of Paranaguá and Antonina are the sugar and alcohol complex (US$1.75 billion) and forest products (US$1.63 billion).

SURPLUS – Agribusiness imports through the ports of Paraná totaled US$1.3 billion in 2021. Among the products that most influenced this amount were cereals and oilseed products (which exclude soybeans).

Agricultural imports last year increased by 34% compared to the value recorded in 2020.
