|YTD Inventory / Shipment Report |
|3rd Marketing Month||Crop: 2021||1- Lower than expected volume of the 2021 Iranian pistachio crop, in addition to significant currency fluctuations and relatively strong export figures during the first three marketing months, has resulted in a rather stagnant equilibrium in the market and export prices. The global demand for Iranian pistachios has been put under pressure by the reduced availability of high quality products and high kernel prices. On the supply side, an average outlook for next year’s crop in certain major geographic regions has resulted in sluggish sells, with large farmers offering limited volume of their stock at any given time.|
2- Given its unique taste, availability and price competitiveness, demand for Iranian natural kernel is strong and shipments show an increasing trend. Natural Pistachio Kernels amount to 9% of this year’s total YTD export shipments at the end of the third marketing month as compared to 6% for the same period of previous year. The high demand for Iranian pistachio kernels, has resulted in a de facto price floor for Iranian in-shell pistachios.
3- As the traditional destination for Iranian Green Peeled Pistachio Kernels, EU’s share has dropped as compared to the previous marketing year. This, could be contributed to an increase in demand for GPPK in new destination markets such as the Middle East and China in addition to a devaluation of EUR against USD as compared to last year.
