The third and fourth quarters of 2023 witnessed a gradual decline in the safflower oil prices in Asia. Initially, the Indian market experienced a slight relaxation attributed to the government's reduction of import duties, stabilizing prices from previous quarters. However, the combination of low market prices and inexpensive Russian and Ukrainian exports further drove down domestic prices of safflower oil. Additionally, oversupplied markets and reduced demands led to a downward trend in safflower oil prices throughout the aforementioned period, not only in Asia but in European countries too.

In Western Europe, safflower oil prices fluctuated throughout the third quarter. However, the market was able to gain positive growth due to increased international demand, notably from India. In North America, safflower oil prices remained subdued, influenced by the crop's resilience to drought conditions during El Niño and fluctuating domestic demands.

Analyst Insight

According to Procurement Resource, the price trend of Safflower Oil is expected to be dependent on the crop output and trading activities in the next quarter.

Safflower Oil Price Trend for the First Half of 2023

Safflower Oil is an edible oil extracted from Safflower flowers through cold pressing. It has a variety of applications, like cooking oil, in cosmetics, resin and polymer industries, cosmetics, etc. The first half of the year 2023 witnessed a fluctuating market trend for Safflower Oil. The first quarter started strong since the feedstock and upstream costs were still high. The global inflation was mounting, and the supply chains were still disturbed.

However, as the trade routes and supply chains started improving gradually, the production and upstream costs started coming down. Other alternative edible oil options also saturated the market, pushing back the Safflower Oil demands. So, the second quarter saw Safflower Oil prices backtracking. Overall, mixed market sentiments were observed.

Analyst Insight

According to Procurement Resource, the Safflower Oil prices are likely to fluctuate in a similar manner in the coming months as well.

Safflower Oil Price Trend for the Second Half of 2022

During the said period of the second half of the year 2022, the Safflower Oil market was struggling to compete with other edible oil markets. Mid-July saw the Black Sea deal taking place, which opened the way for Ukrainian agricultural exports to come into the global marketplace. Indonesia also reduced tariffs on palm oil exports. These events resulted in an avid influx of supplies in the global edible oil markets.

So, the Safflower Oil prices struggled to sustain in the competitive edible oil market. However, the limited supply of Safflower Oil was still a concern. Overall, the Safflower Oil market trend remained afloat.

Analyst Insight

According to Procurement Resource, given the slump in downstream demands amidst supply issues, the Safflower Oil prices are likely to remain anchored going further.

Safflower Oil Price Trend for the First Half of 2022

The production of safflower is highly volatile, and its planting area depends on the market prices. In 2021, the prices of safflower surged throughout China owing to reduced production, low inventories, and high downstream demand. Due to the record high prices, many medicinal farmers started safflower production in 2022 and hence the production increased, and market inventories expanded causing the prices to decline.

In China, Xinjiang and Yunnan are the two major producers of safflower. In Yunnan, the distribution price in the production area(1 mu) for scattered and bulk goods sold by farmers ranged from 135-140 RMB and the goods used for medical decoction ranged from 144-146 RMB.

The low atmospheric conditions in the early stages of production caused a delay in the peak picking season thereby, inflating the price trend for safflower slightly. However, the prices stabilized and decline further due to the incoming good from Kazakhstan. The current prices of safflower seeds are around 3.8-4 RMB/kg.

The safflower prices registered an oscillating trend which directly influence the prices of safflower oil. Despite the fluctuating raw material prices, the price trend for safflower oil remained anchored in the global market owing to the robust demand for the pharmaceutical and essential oil industry. With the absence of sunflower oil in the market, the prices of other oil soared uncontrollably.
