Global oilseed market: Tariff war casts shadow on US soybean demand outlook

Published May 21, 2024

Tridge summary

Soybean futures and prices were mixed, with U.S. futures slightly up and European futures down. The U.S. is experiencing a decrease in soybean exports to China, with Brazil taking over as the top exporter, due to additional tariffs imposed by the Biden administration. Despite potential tariffs, China is still expected to be a significant market for U.S. commodities in 2022. The loosening of drought conditions in the Midwest due to recent rainfall is helping agricultural production. However, a decrease in U.S. soybean crushing performance is not expected to result in the USDA raising its U.S. soybean crushing target. Concerns have been raised about China's response to these tariffs and their potential impact on U.S. agricultural exports.
