TAGS: / / / / /

We have reports that state demand for both has increased. With limited availability prices continue to be firm. We have also received a report that advised that rains in certain growing regions in Yunnan are currently hampering collection, adding more pressure on prices. Sentiment is that pricing will not ease this summer.

Offers are continuing to be made, although at high levels. Traditionally, there is a feeling that when new oil enters the market in July/August prices will soften.  However, inventories of both crude and refined oil are low so buyers are waiting to see what will happen in this market.

One dealer has reported Eucalyptus production in 2015 was 8,500 tons, in 2016 only 7,000 tons. This dealer is also advising that in certain growing areas, access to the mountains has been banned by the government as a fire prevention method. Combining this with the bad weather earlier this year, production has been far less than usual. Prices are climbing on a weekly basis.

Crude Eucalyptus stocks are limited as snow and cold weather have hampered the collection of leaves during the normal period at the end of 2016. Prices continue to climb and we are aware of orders being defaulted. With continued reports of damaged trees, even though the next collections begin in May, we do not foresee any relief soon.

Reports continue to state that farmers were unable to collect and process leaves to make oil.  With a revised tax policy in place, prices have firmed and there doesn’t appear to be any relief until June/July 2017.

Reports that inclement weather has impeded production are again being circulated.  Heavy rains and cold weather in the growing regions have caused prices to firm after a short interval of softening.  Currency fluctuations may ease some of these price increases.

Indications are that by late November / early December a significant (?) quantity of oil will enter the market.  The impact of this anticipated expansion of supply has been felt through a slight easing of prices.  Reports state that farmers are selling stocks of crude oil now in anticipation of further reductions.  Any spurt in demand before the end of the year will likely cut into these price reductions.

We have received a report that a major Chinese trading company has secured the majority of oil produced during December and January. This company has been releasing limited amounts of Eucalyptus every month, keeping prices high.  Both frost damage and agricultural labor currently being devoted to food crops add to the expectation that the market will be firm for the foreseeable future.

Prices continue to be firm as suppliers claim there is low carryover and limited availability.  New Oil normally reaches the market in July but this year has been anything but normal.  Prices are expected to remain firm through July/August at least.

Pricing on both products remains firm as it is still the dry season in Southern China.  The diminished harvest caused by this year’s frost is worsening the limited availability that is  common to April.  May rains may help but prices will still likely stay firm until new oil is available in July.

First hand accounts of the eucalyptus trees in southern Yunnan describe severe damage caused by cold.  Pictures show Eucalyptus trees either barren or covered only in dead, dried leaves.  The exact extent of the damage and potential for recovery is unknown but we foresee an increase in price at least for the short term.  If new Oil hits the market at its traditional time in July prices might begin to soften.

Reports before the Lunar New Year indicated that speculators were taking positions and demand was increasing.  These factors, combined with bad weather in China’s Yunnan province lead us to believe that prices will stay firm until the new crop becomes available in July.

December reports of increasing demand and firming prices from one of our suppliers have turned out to be correct.  Prices for Eucalyptus Oil and Eucalyptol have increased  and availability is limited.  It is believed that these firmer prices should drive up availability after the Chinese Lunar New Year.

With new Oil entering the market, we hope to see quality issues on Eucalyptus Oil begin to diminish.  With this influx we have seen a slight softening in pricing from origin.  Historically, this softening continues through February but the last two years have deviated from that trend with rising prices.  Eucalyptol continues to follow the price for Eucalyptus Oil.

Quality issues with Eucalyptus samples are becoming more common, possibly due to the issues caused by heavy rains during the summer months.  With reportedly strong demand and little carryover, it’s possible that producers rushed production to get product to market more quickly. With new Oil expected to enter the market in December, we expect that pressures currently pushing up prices will dissipate.

Similarly to Eucalyptus, cold in southern China has caused major damage to the trees.  One report indicates that the upcoming Spring crop will be 20% smaller than last year’s.  Belief among our sources is inconclusive. Some believe that the traditionally larger Spring crop will ease prices and some say that a shortened Spring crop will not cover demand.  Prices for these two ingredients have increased and we expect this trend to continue for several months.
