Cream Price Trends for the Second Half of 2022
European market maintained its high run for cream prices till October 2022, owing to the skyrocketing inflation rates and crippled supply. But a sharp price decline was noticed in October as the supply situation improved worldwide after the covid restrictions were lifted in China. Freight arrangements also got better aiding the upstream costs. In the last two months of H2 2022, the prices plateaued and remained on the declining curve.
The downfall in the cream price trendss in the US market started a little earlier than in Europe. After wavering on the lower side for 2-3 months, a sharp decline was noticed from October 2022, which continued till the year-end. Around September things started to get better for global trade as the supply tribulations had settled down. The clearing of port congestions was a big reason for the revival of trade activities. As the upstream costs went down and supplies became regular, the market demand failed to sustain the high cream prices.
According to the Procurement Resource, cream prices are expected to remain volatile in the coming quarter. As the global supply chain normalizes any fluctuations in the demand will directly impact the pricing fundamentals.
Cream Price Trends For the First Half of 2022
The unprecedented rise in feed and food prices owing to the Russian invasion of Ukraine has created massive volatility in the global market. The extreme price rise has trickled down to the entire dairy market. The surging costs are due to erratic supplies, rise in the price of animal feed and the lack of skilled labour. The European Milk Board has warned that the soaring milk prices are destroying the livelihood of dairy farmers.
Amid the high demand for butter, the available milk supply is being redirected for butter production, straining the supply chain for cream. In the UK, the cream prices went from 2155 Pound/MT in January to 2734 Pound/MT in June 2022. The prices of Italian centrifuged Cream (40%) averaged 3.47 Euro/kg during the said period.
The US market is witnessing double-digit inflation due to the current geopolitical dynamics. Dairy prices increased by 11.8 % Y-O-Y basis while milk hiked by 15.9%.

Cream is a well-known dairy product that is composed of the higher-fat layer skimmed from the top of milk before homogenisation. In un-homogenised milk, the fat, that is less dense, eventually rises to the top. In the commercial production of cream, this method is accelerated by using centrifuges called "separators".
