Pepper market has continuously increased this month from VND 38,000 in early May to VND 48,500 at the present. Price increase was up to 28% within 25 days and up from the bottom of 35.5% (VND 34,500) within 2 months. A jump in prices is beyond the expectation of almost all pepper producers and exporters not only in Vietnam but also worldwide. The market increased last time mainly due to the following reasons;

After lock down due to the Covid-19 epidemic, Chinese customers returned to buy both black and white pepper in huge quantities (March and April bought above 20.000 tones and May is around above 10.000 metric tones) . In particular, white pepper is being bought by many and continuously.
Pepper was low level and is considered to have been at the bottom already (VND 34,500 - 1,510$), so many speculators actively bought huge quantities of stock. This also contributed significantly to the price increase last time.

Due to the Covid - 19, some countries producing and exporting pepper have been continuously restricted as harvesting, processing, freight forwarding, logistic service. This also makes pepper sometimes suddenly shortage in each different time.
At low prices and a lot of farmers making losses, many farmers have left and do not continue to take care of pepper as the previous time, besides the weather in the pepper areas is drought. Therefore, pepper production in 2021 is maybe less than the 2020 crop.

Many exporters sold short for long time shipments who have not covered raw material yet. They have to buy to ensure time of shipment.
Some big oversea customers have not yet purchased enough quantity for orders in the 3rd & 4th quarters, so they continue to participate in the market in the coming monh.
At present, the situation in Vietnam is controlling Covid 19 quite well. Transportation service, logistics smoothly and quickly. Therefore the oversea demand for spice products in Vietnam is gradually increasing.
Although the inventories of Vietnam pepper are still quite large, however, we assess that the pressure of circulation of these inventories is very low due to being scattered from farmers, middlemen, exporters ... They are not in a hurry to sell or be ready to freeze inventory if the market price decreases.
Even at this level many farmers/collectors still think attractive and they have been buying more quantity to stockpiling from last week until now.

Currently, it is almost the only Vietnam can supply a large quantity to the market while Indonesia and Brazil are offering very limited and not possible prompt shipment. Therefore, the demand for Vietnamese pepper is expected to continue to increase until next July at least (Indonesia harvests in July, Brazil harvests the second crop in August 2020).

Contrary to many other pepper exporting countries, Vietnam's currency has been consistently stronger than the USD with a 1% over the past week, that makes pepper prices also up.In my opinion, pepper prices will continue uptrend until the end of June/July. There will be some short-term corrections in July/August.

27 April, 2020


Global pepper market is forecast to be slow due to affected by COVID-19.


Disease movements are still complicated, especially in the US&Europe - the major pepper markets in the world, will cause less import demand. The global pepper market maybe continue  faces disrupted supply due to social isolation requirements and restrictions on clearance of cargo from many countries around the world.

The first quarter 2020 export reached 83,246 tons that increasing by 12.6% compare with the same period in 2019 (exported 72,726 tons). This is new records from Vietnam and very impressive for everybody too.

Increasing Demand From European Countries

In Europe, consumers are willing to spend more for quality foods. Consumers are also looking for new products due to increased health awareness and nutritional facts. Cashew kernels are largely used in the European market as a roasted-and-salted snack. Lately, cashew kernel also turns out to be interesting to industrial users and is used for cookies and cereals, and is also promoted as a topping on ice cream.

Usually, whole kernels, lacking defects or blemishes, are essential for the snack trade and the broken pieces are essential for other confectionery, biscuits, bakery products, and other prepared foods in the region.European cashew kernel imports are increasing, driven by the health trend.

The Netherlands, Germany, United Kingdom, and the growing markets in Central and Eastern Europe offer opportunities for developing country suppliers. In 2016, the import volume of cashew nuts reached 180,000 metric ton. Of this, nearly all (over 99%) concerned cashew kernels.

The import of in-shell cashew nuts is insignificant in the region.In the newer markets, such as Eastern Europe, there is an inclination in kernel grades toward the superior types, notably from the pieces to the wholes. The W320 is the leading grade in the imports.

 Lastly, European retailers have increased their retail prices for cashews and consumption is still seen good. The health benefits of nuts may be the reason for the sustained demand.
