Along with this, another major factor responsible for pushing down the malted barley prices was the downslide in the feedstock barley market. The El Nino supported barley production, which flooded the market with excess produce when other grains were also giving tough competition. This took away the upstream cost support from the malted barley market as well. As a result, falling price trends were witnessed during the said period.

Analyst Insight

According to Procurement Resource, given the current slump, the Malted Barley price trends are likely to improve in the coming months as the market will strive for stabilization.

Malted Barley Price Trend for the First Half of 2023

Malted barley is a central ingredient in the brewing sector as it consists of vital enzymes and sugars required for yeast fermentation that are essential in the production of beers and whiskey. It is also used as a taste enhancer in the production of malted milkshakes and cereals. Its price trend is thus dictated by the demand for food products and the production of grains around the globe.

In the first and second quarters of 2023, the production of barley, wheat, and other grains was adversely affected by severe weather conditions, mainly due to the El Nino phenomenon. The farmers thus struggled with hotter and dry weather trend that hampered the production outputs severally. Further, the Russian invasion of Ukraine disrupted the supply chains that, in turn, lowered the stock availability of malted barley around the globe. These restrictions in supply failed to cater to the rising demand for malted barley around the world, and as a result, the prices of malted barley followed an inclining journey.

Analyst Insight

According to Procurement Resource, the price of Malted Barley is expected to follow a fluctuating trend as the production rates are suffering from adverse market conditions while the demand seems to have taken a positive front.

The barley that is classified for use in malting is referred to as Malted Barley. The major difference between malting barley and feed barley is that the strains of barley, which are categorised as malting barleys possess certain genetic qualities. These genetic qualities, which include lower protein and beta glucan amounts along with higher enzyme levels, are responsible for making it better for brewing.

Malted Barley is basically the source of the sugars (mainly maltose) that is fermented into beer. Malted barley is further used to adjust enzymatic activities in baking applications, thus, helping bakers shorten mix times and create browning characteristics.
