The Impact of Japan’s Trade Agreements and Safeguard Renegotiation on U.S. Access to Japan’s Beef Market

Since 2018, Japan has ratified trade agreements that generate both challenges and opportunities for U.S. beef exporters. Using the Global Trade Analysis Project model, ERS researchers estimate that after 10 years Japan's imports of beef products will have increased by 26.6 percent and Japan’s production of beef products will have decreased by 17.2 percent. U.S. beef export values to Japan are estimated to increase $413.8 million.
