Livestock and poultry have played an important role in the national economy, contributing significantly to agriculture and the gross national product. About 44% of human daily intake of animal protein comes from livestock products. Furthermore, it plays a pivotal role in the rural socio-economic system as maximum households directly involved in livestock. It has created job opportunities for more than 6 million people. The poultry industry has been engaging supply of quality protein to the Bangladesh population at the lowest price in the world. In the 90s total investment in this sector was only BDT 15 thousand million, but now it is more than BDT 150 thousand million. In addition to family poultry production carried out at a small scale, mostly with indigenous poultry, the poultry sector is producing commercial broiler and eggs to meet up the demand of the consumers. To make it possible, the industrial farms are producing grand-parent (GP) stock and Parent Stock (PS) while the commercial sector is mostly in the hands of small-scale (up to 3000 birds) and medium scale (above 3000 but below 20,000 birds) producers. The present status of poultry sector?s in Bangladesh at a glance and the division wise registered private poultry farms in Bangladesh, respectively. Presently, the poultry sector has employed huge manpower (approximately 0.6 million) of both technical and non-technical background workers and expected to make more room for employment in the future Poultry population in Bangladesh is estimated about 304.17 million where chicken population is about 255.31 million and duck population is about9 48.86. Changing pattern and growth of poultry since 2004-05 to 2013-14 is shown. The growth rate of chicken and duck for last 10 years was 3.75 and 3.05% respectively. Growth rate of poultry was about 6.21% during 2004-2007 but growth rate declined (2.70%) during the financial year 2007-08 due to incidence of bird flu (avian influenza). This situation improved during 2008-09 (4.20%) and again declined since 2009-10 about 2.89%. meat and egg production of last 10 years along with growth rate is shown. The average growth rate of meat and egg for 10 years was 19.38 and 7.77%, respectively. The growth rate of meat production was highest in 2010-11 (57.94%) and lowest in 2006-07 (-7.96%). The growth rate of egg production was highest in 2013-14 (33.48%) and lowest in 2008-09 (-17.00%). The requirement, availability and deficit of meat and eggs are presented. The consumption of meat and egg in SAARC countries are presented. The per capita poultry meat consumption is much lower (1.9 kg) compare to other Asian countries. The poultry meat consumption in Pakistan is 4.4 kg, Indonesia 7.0 kg, Philippines 11.0 kg, Egypt 11.6 kg, China 12.8 kg, Thailand 12.3 kg, South Korea 16.4 kg, Vietnam 15.6 kg, Malaysia 38.1 kg and Japan 19.1 kg13. In Bangladesh, the availability of meat and egg is much lower than demand. Therefore, there is a deficit condition to be met up. The available grand parent stock, parent stock and vaccines in the country is exhibited. It is observed that all world class GP, PS and vaccines are available in Bangladesh and contributing a lot for the development of poultry industry. Bangladesh started export of day old chicks and feed to other countries during 2002-2007 and it is temporarily stopped due to AI. However, if we control the AI, we will be in position to export not only the chicks and feed but also poultry meat. The government has also liberalized its policies to encourage the growth of commercial poultry sector in Bangladesh by introducing tax holiday, subsidy in electricity and also incentives for export.
