10/02/2014 Market Review – December 2013 During the year 2013 the pepper market was considered to be hot, particularly at the second half of the year since the prices have again increased sharply to the highest in December 2013. Although production has increased in 2013, but given the fact of a very limited inventory at producing as well as consuming countries at beginning of 2013, the slight increased production in 2013 was absorbed in the local markets.
Based on the latest information received by the IPC, total export of pepper from producing countries in 2013 excluding the raw materials used for manufacturing pepper oil and oleoresin was around 252,000 MT valued at around USD 1.78 billion, as against 260,000 MT worth USD 1.85 billion achieved in 2012. Vietnam received the major portion of USD 830 million which is around 47% in the total earnings of 2013 followed by Indonesia, Brazil and India.
Plantation Industries and Commodities Minister Datuk Seri Douglas Uggah Embas said last year, global pepper production increased two per cent to 324,090 tonnes compared with an output of 317,750 metric tonnes recorded in 2011.
