In the European region, however, a serious supply crisis was seen. The rot disease trampled the production volume and quality, seriously raising the price concerns for the staple vegetable flakes. American potato flakes market, on the other hand, was much more relaxed and eased as an increased production volume in the region pushed the prices downward here. Overall, a varying price trend was witnessed.

Analyst Insight

According to Procurement Resource, Potato Flakes prices are expected to vary in the coming months as well. The upstream dynamics will play a critical role in driving this price trend.

Potato Flakes Price Trend for the First Half of 2023

Potato flakes are made by cooking, mashing, and dehydrating potatoes, and thus, the market trend of potatoes guides the price trend of potato flakes. In the US and European markets, the prices of potato flakes surged considerably to extreme levels. Certain manufacturers were even forced to halt their production facilities amid the soaring costs of raw materials. There was a huge incline in the energy production costs also due to the rising rates of inflation in the UK, the US, and European countries.

The European countries, on the other hand, also struggled with the fall in production volumes and delayed harvest of potato crops, which worked in favor of the rising costs of potato flakes. The region was, therefore, forced to raise its import volumes from Israel and France. The trajectory in India was, however, different as the price trend of potato flakes declined on account of falling potato costs that depreciated the overall market sentiments of potato flakes.

Analyst Insight

According to Procurement Resource, the price of Potato Flakes is expected to fluctuate in the upcoming months as the prices of potatoes are affected by the falling production volumes and poor supply.

Potato flakes Price Trend for the Second Half of 2022

The price trend of potato flakes in the last two quarters of 2022 was determined by the production and supply of potatoes worldwide. In European countries, the area of harvest increased; however, the production and harvest rates declined significantly.

The most significant cause of this poor production was the dry and hot summer conditions, which resulted in lower yields and, in turn, hampered the growth of the potato flakes market. The adverse effects of climate change were not only restricted to the European countries, but its effects were also seen in the availability of potatoes in the Asian markets as well.

In addition to this, the cost of energy production and irrigation increased by several folds as the global economy struggled to find a base. The challenges were further accelerated when storage and quality issues rose in some of the European nations, which ultimately proved to be fatal to the potato flakes price trend.

Analyst Insight

According to procurement resources, the prices of Potato Flakes are estimated to struggle due to the fall in the production of potatoes due to extreme weather conditions.

Potato Flakes Price Trend for the First Half of 2022

The cost of supermarket staples is rising worldwide as the cost-of-living crunch hits consumers. The crop prices are volatile and double-digit inflation due to the Russia-Ukraine war has rattled the global supply chains.

Declining acreage, high fertilizer prices, inflated freight charges, and labour shortages amid adverse climatic conditions have caused the production/processing costs for potato flakes to rise. The input costs for production have gone up by 18-22% in the present year. According to the US Bureau of Labour and Statistics, this year witnessed the largest food inflation levels since 1981.

The Mintec benchmark prices of processing potatoes in Belgium shot up by 264% Y-O-Y basis. In the USA, the average price of potatoes averaged 0.89/lb in June 2022, indicating a 15.86 % rise Y-O-Y basis. The price for a bag of 4kg spuds has surged to 12 USD as compared to the previous 5 USD/4kg price. Hence, the inflated prices of potatoes directly influenced the price trend for potato flakes causing them to remain strengthened globally.
