There have been heavy rains in Indonesia and continued rain in the growing regions in Southern China at the end of 2016.  The Chinese crop is reportedly off by 15-20% and internal demand in Indonesia is strong.  This has translated into higher prices as availability is becoming limited.

There does not seem to be any offers of oil from Indonesia and oil production has just started in Haiti.  Haitian oil pricing is firm as demand seems to be greater than supply.

Reports continue to advise that steady rainfall in Indonesia is hampering the collection of leaves.  With supplies of Crude Clove Oil reportedly limited prices continue to firm.  Eugenol, Iso Eugenol, Caryophyllene, Methyl Eugenol, Methyl Iso Eugenol, Vanillin ex Eugenol, and Propenyl Guaethol have all firmed.  With the rainy season lasting through March & April we do not expect prices to ease soon.

Chinese production in 2016 was approximately two thirds of that of 2015.  This was due to a combination of low prices discouraging farmers from distilling, environmental protection policies, and bad weather.  With Indonesia acting as an alternative to China in 2016, supply was stable.  Now with steady rains, their supply has become limited.  As a result, prices have increased.

The Spice Trade is reporting delays in the crops from Brazil and Indonesia.  Fresh Pepper from Indonesia is not expected to be exported before the end of July/early August.  Delayed by El Niño, the crop in Southeastern Brazil is already late and is expected to be ready in September or October.  Vietnamese dealers are advising that farmers and collectors are withholding product, waiting for prices to climb higher.  With the Indian crop reportedly smaller than normal and little relief from Indonesia in the near future, prices are expected to increase.

Oil from Indonesia is extremely difficult as there appears to be very limited processing being done.  In Haiti the crop is mostly over and supply is not meeting demand.  Prices for both Vetiver Oils continue to climb.

The spice market reports that this year’s crop in India was significantly lower than that of last year.  It also reports that drought and now heavy rains have caused peppercorns to drop prematurely, negatively affecting Indonesia’s crop.  A good crop in Vietnam has offset this, allowing prices to soften.
