Market Monitor April 2019

04 Apr 2019

The latest edition of the AMIS Market Monitor sees overall trends in world supply and demand for the four AMIS crops broadly unchanged from previous months, with global food commodity markets remaining well-supplied. While export availabilities for 2018/19 seem largely adequate, the market attention is gradually shifting to the outlook for next season.

This month's edition of the Monitor presents revised supply and demand balances for China, following the country's release of new production estimates for the years 2007-2017. The significant upward revisions by the Chinese National Bureau of Statistics have been accommodated by raising estimates for utilization (in particular feed use) and stocks. The revised data can be downloaded from the AMIS database while a short  explanatory note is available from FAO's website, under Cereal Supply and Demand Brief
