Pepper export gives great value to suppliers because of the continual rise in demand for pepper expenditure in recent years. However, because there are so many different types of pepper suppliers, importers must have specific understanding in order to import the proper type of pepper.


Pepper export: An Overview

After the COVID-19 epidemic last year, the global supply of pepper declined, but demand from important markets like the EU, the United States, and the Middle East grew again.

Current pepper export situation

The global pepper export market, in general, is continually altering, which has a significant impact on the world’s leading pepper exporters. Pepper exports from Brazil and Indonesia grew in August and September 2021, as the stock of pepper was replenished from the fresh harvest, whilst Vietnam’s pepper exports continued to decline.


According to the International Pepper Organization, global pepper exports climbed by 2% in 2020 compared to 2019 and reached over 459,000 tons. In that year, Vietnam exported about 282,000 tons, accounting for roughly 60% of global exports.


Due to a scarcity of supply and challenging transportation, pepper export prices have risen in most major producing countries across the world. Furthermore, increased import demand towards the end of the year influenced listed pepper export prices positively.

In the first nine months of this year, Vietnam’s pepper exports to most markets increased in volume and value, hitting over 200,000 tons with a value of about 720 million USD.

According to predictions, Vietnam’s pepper exports will exceed 300,000 tons in the future years, worth about $1 billion.


Brazil’s pepper export volume has climbed again due to greater supply from the new harvest. Black pepper is the most popular pepper in Brazil. 

According to figures from the Brazilian Ministry of Industry, Foreign Trade and Services (MDIC), Brazil’s pepper exports totaled 61,845 tons in the first nine months of the year, down 8.7% from the same period last year.
