Sesame Seeds Market Report (Update) – April 2011

Dear Customers,

Hope you all are doing fine!

In our last report dated 23rd March 2011, we had discussed about the market developments in the main Sesame producing as well as consuming countries. We had concluded that the prevailing market price is very attractive. In this short period, some developments have taken place in the Sesame market, particularly in India, and these are discussed below.

  • The summer crop that everyone is looking forward to is estimated at around 60,000 MT, which is less compared to last year. This fall in yield is mainly due to weak prices & poor realization for farmers from Sesame cultivation as opposed to other commodities. Thus, the new summer crop looks inadequate considering that it has to support the market for 6 more months.
  • Availability of good quality raw material is gradually becoming a huge problem. Today, availability of 99x1x1 quality in the market seems good on paper, but is disappointing in reality. This problem is not just with a specific quality raw material, but with all types of qualities.
  • Around 8-10 days back, the market suddenly went up by 4-4.5% on account of some buying by the hullers. It is noticed that the hullers are not getting the raw material required in terms of both quality & quantity. Thus, they have increased the prices of their finished product and this has further pushed prices of the raw material upwards. As we had mentioned earlier, India has good demand for Hulled Sesame Seeds.
  • The INR also seems to be appreciating against the USD & and has appreciated by about 2% in the in the last 10 days.

Conclusion

Despite the market appreciation during the last week, we are still of the opinion that the current prices are at a fairly good level for buyers to cover their future requirements.

The prices are not expected to drop below current levels due to the factors mentioned above, but at the same time, we do not expect the market to go up substantially either. All other origins have remained quite firm & steady.

Best Regards,

Amrut Bora,

    Dear Sir

    Have a nice day
    Hardly the crop of UP of natural sesame is finished and the arrival is also very less these days.we can say that the stockist are only having the stock of natural sesame as the ariival is very less..the arrival that comes that much quantity is taken by the hulled factory for his consumption.

    There is a stock but people are not bringing there stock in the market they are waiting for the Gujrat summer crop to come as the sowing is also very less compared to last year.

    This is a very strong reason which may help to incerase the prices of natural sesame seed .Market will be up or down totally as per the demand if there is a demand in Hulled sesame seed then it may help to increase price and then only the stock will come out.So The prices can only go up if there an international demand.

    Dear Sir, how are you? I am fine. Thanks for your comments.
    But your comments did not include great market players of the world on both consumer’s side and producers. I do not think only Indian consumers and producers could influence the market. Big markets like china, excellent quality sesame producers like Ethiopia have great role in the international market. Ethiopian sesame seed’s quality is still excellent and there is no sign of declining in quality. Rather because of new mark system introduced in this year quality has been increased from previous years. However, the market situation for this year has been unfair. Top quality of seeds has been parallel-ly sold with less quality of sesame. As a result Ethiopian farmers and exporters have been working with a minimal margin. With regards to stock position of the country and most of African origin stock is almost complete. As a result, in my opinion, price will increase until l the next harvest season comes.
