Brazil's soybean export forecast for 2024 has been slightly revised upwards to 96 million tons, marking a 6% decrease from 2023, as per Consultoria Safras & Mercado. Despite the overall decline in exports, soybean crushing in Brazil is expected to see a minor increase, with imports projected to rise significantly. The total soybean supply and demand are both anticipated to drop by 4%, leading to a substantial 30% decrease in ending stocks. While soybean meal production is set to remain stable, both its exports and domestic consumption are expected to fall. Conversely, soybean oil production is predicted to increase modestly, with a notable decrease in exports but an uptick in domestic consumption and biodiesel use. The report also highlights a challenging week for Brazilian soybean deals, influenced by a strong dollar and the largest weekly drop in futures contracts in Chicago since August 2023, amidst a bleak price outlook and global financial market uncertainties.
