Tridge summary

The global oilseed market, including rapeseed, is experiencing a gradual recovery, influenced by higher oil and palm oil prices, alongside forecasts of decreased rapeseed production in Europe for 2024. The EU and Great Britain are projected to see a reduction in rapeseed harvests, with various factors such as Brent crude futures, US crude oil inventory levels, and adjustments in canola production forecasts affecting the market. Speculative growth in oil and vegetable oil prices may be curbed by reduced demand from India and China, and an increased supply from South America and Asia. Challenges in importing sufficient oilseeds in the European Union are anticipated, particularly from Ukraine and Australia, due to production decreases and logistical issues. Additionally, the agricultural market is impacted by the need to sustain grain exports from Ukraine and ensure stability in the Black Sea region, with disruptions in rapeseed supply and fluctuations in commodity profitability also highlighted.
