Offers are continuing to be made, although at high levels. Traditionally, there is a feeling that when new oil enters the market in July/August prices will soften.  However, inventories of both crude and refined oil are low so buyers are waiting to see what will happen in this market.

With the Russian harvest due in July reports are indicating that acreage sowed is equal to last year, despite low prices offered to farmers during 2016. With prices at low levels not seen for years, there is anticipation that new crop prices will be higher. Coriander Herb Oil is reportedly produced to advance orders. With little carryover, prices have been firm.

One dealer has reported Eucalyptus production in 2015 was 8,500 tons, in 2016 only 7,000 tons. This dealer is also advising that in certain growing areas, access to the mountains has been banned by the government as a fire prevention method. Combining this with the bad weather earlier this year, production has been far less than usual. Prices are climbing on a weekly basis.

There have been heavy rains in Indonesia and continued rain in the growing regions in Southern China at the end of 2016.  The Chinese crop is reportedly off by 15-20% and internal demand in Indonesia is strong.  This has translated into higher prices as availability is becoming limited.

Crude Eucalyptus stocks are limited as snow and cold weather have hampered the collection of leaves during the normal period at the end of 2016. Prices continue to climb and we are aware of orders being defaulted. With continued reports of damaged trees, even though the next collections begin in May, we do not foresee any relief soon.

Chinese production in 2016 was approximately two thirds of that of 2015.  This was due to a combination of low prices discouraging farmers from distilling, environmental protection policies, and bad weather.  With Indonesia acting as an alternative to China in 2016, supply was stable.  Now with steady rains, their supply has become limited.  As a result, prices have increased.
