The reason for the decline in pepper exports is that the sea freight rate has increased too high, leading to stalled trade. Meanwhile, the world pepper price increased sharply in May 2021 due to the concern that long-term supply is likely to be short. Not only Vietnam this year has lost its pepper crop, but the upcoming crop in Indonesia is also forecasted to be in a similar situation.
Through the 6 months of 2021, the markets of other countries are balancing the cheap pepper reserves of the previous year. However, closer to the end of 2021, this amount of pepper gradually decreases. Along with that, the new crop output is not enough to compensate.
Therefore, the pepper market in the last 6 months of the year is forecasted to be quite “stressful”. In addition, increased consumption demand due to the Covid-19 epidemic gradually being controlled by vaccines will push up the prices of agricultural products, including pepper, to increase well in the near future.
Global pepper price is forecasted to increase in the near future, but the increase is not large. The reason pepper prices continued to increase was due to a sharp decrease in supply in Vietnam – the world’s largest pepper producer compared to the previous year.
