Market Review - January 2015
Pepper market situation in 2015 will depend largely on developments in production during the year. In the short term, the market may be slightly affected by the situation of harvesting season in India and Vietnam. Global pepper production in 2015 is estimated to be better from 2014, as production of pepper in India is reportedly better this year. Since stock brought forward from 2014 is limited, production of pepper from India in 2015 is likely adequate to meet the demand of local industry. Although average price in January 2015 was lower from average price in December 2014, the price during the year is expected not to be changed significantly.
