AsemconnectVietnam - By the year to the end of April of 2019, export pepper price fluctuated with a downward trend and now the pepper price is only 2523, 46 USD per ton, down by 14.26 per cent compared with an average of 2943.33 USD per ton in the first month of this year.
The country’s total pepper exports in the first 4 months of 2019 reached 108,195 tons, an increase of 21,485 tons, or 24.78 per cent compared to the first 4 months of 2018. However, the pepper export turnover in the first 4 months of 2019 reached a total of 283.59 million USD, down by 23.02 million USD or 7.51 per cent over the same period last year.
Regarding the export markets, in the first 4 months of 2019, Vietnam's pepper was mainly exported to markets such as the U.S, India, Pakistan and UAE. The U.S was leading with 18.6 million tons, and it was followed by India, Pakistan and the UAE. Although the export volume was high, the average price declined, so the turnover from these markets has decreased compared to the same period last year, in which the biggest decrease was in the Pakistan market – decreased by 24.89 per cent, and then India - fell by 20.91 per cent, the UAE – fell by 16.38 per cent and finally the US - fell by 6.48 per cent.
