Published Mar 6, 2024

Tridge summary

The International Grains Council forecasts an 11% increase in global pea consumption this season, reaching 16.5 million tonnes, despite a stable global harvest. This surge in demand has resulted in a 10% reduction in global ending stocks, with main exporting countries experiencing a more significant 17% decline. However, global pea trade in 2024 is expected to decrease by 2% to 6.1 million tonnes. Rising demand is particularly noted in the Middle East, North Africa, and Southeast Asia, but future availability and price could be impacted by challenges such as unfavorable weather and increasing fertilizer prices.
