However, before reaching any predictions about whether pepper prices will rise or fall in 2022, many more facts about the current context must be considered.

The current situation of the pepper market and the factors influencing it in 2022

Supply and demand are the two most important market factors impacting the commodities market in general and the pepper market in particular. So, how will the current situation affect supply and demand in the pepper market?

The current situation of the pepper market and the factors influencing it in 2022

  • For Supply

In 2022, it is expected that the supply of the main producing countries will decrease due to unfavorable weather and low pepper prices in previous years; as a result, growers have not concentrated on care that affects the yield of pepper. Due to climate change, the crop in 2022 is expected to be slower.

Meanwhile, the Covid-19 pandemic has had a number of consequences, including higher fertilizer prices and labor scarcity, both of which are affecting pepper production in the year 2022. The production forecast for the countries is as follows:

The pepper production forecast

  • Vietnamese pepper production is estimated to reach 200,000 tons in 2022.
  • Brazil will produce 105,000 tons of pepper,
  • India will supply 60,000 tons, 
  • And Indonesia will produce 50,000 tons.

In 2022, total output is estimated to reach 520 thousand tons, with an inventory of around 50,000 tons. As a result, global output is expected to reach 570 thousand tons in 2022.

  • For Demand

Yearly World Consumption

The consumption demand of pepper in the world is predicted to increase by 6-8 % every year from 2015 to 2019, and by 2022, it is expected to increase from 3-5 %, which is the lowest level. 

It can be seen that demand and total production output in 2022 are at the same level, while other factors such as the control of the Covid-19 pandemic, freight rates that have gradually stabilized in the last two months, and government policies to pump money into the economy to help it recover. These are factors that positively affect pepper prices in the near future. Besides, there is still a certain amount of inventory in the market that has not been sold out, leading to a slow increase in demand in recent times.

The consumption demand of pepper in the world is predicted to increase by 6-8 % every year from 2015 to 2019
