According to the United States Department of Agriculture, Economic Research Service:

“The U.S. poultry industry is the world's largest producer and second largest exporter of poultry meat and a major egg producer. U.S. consumption of poultry meat (broilers, other chicken, and turkey) is considerably higher than beef or pork, but less than total red meat consumption. With almost 18 percent of total poultry production exported, the U.S. poultry industry is heavily influenced by currency fluctuations, trade negotiations, and economic growth in importing markets. The poultry and egg industry is a major user of feed grains.”

According to the United States Department of Agriculture, Foreign Agricultural Service, October 2019 quarterly report “Livestock and Poultry: World Markets and Trade,” this is the overview for chicken meat (page 18):

 “Global exports are forecast 4 percent higher in 2020 to a record 12.5 million tons. Expansion is largely due to increased China demand which will propel Chinese imports up by 20 percent in 2020. Brazil and Thailand will make the greatest export gains in China as highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI)-related restrictions keep other major suppliers such as the United States out of that market. The Philippines imports are forecast up 27 percent as consumers transition from pork to increasingly price-competitive chicken.

“U.S. production and exports: U.S. production is expected to rise 2 percent to 20.2 million tons in 2020 matching demand growth of 2 percent. Exports are forecast 2 percent higher to 3.3 million tons nearing levels prior to the outbreak of HPAI in 2014. U.S. export growth will center on markets such as Mexico and the Philippines.”
