EUCALYPTUS & EUCALYPTOL


November 2017

Prices continue to rise as supply cannot cover demand. One major supplier has no stock to offer at present. Reports still indicate no relief until May – July 2018.

October 2017

Reports continue to advise of a major shortage of Eucalyptus Oil. Besides the two months of continuous rain in the growing regions, a major tax reform policy has hampered payment to the farmers.  This has resulted in higher prices. No relief is immediately expected as demand stays firm but we continue to monitor the situation.

Eucalyptus Oil & Eucalyptol


May 2017

One dealer has reported Eucalyptus production in 2015 was 8,500 tons, in 2016 only 7,000 tons. This dealer is also advising that in certain growing areas, access to the mountains has been banned by the government as a fire prevention method. Combining this with the bad weather earlier this year, production has been far less than usual. Prices are climbing on a weekly basis.

Eucalyptus Oil & Eucalyptol


November 2016

Indications are that by late November / early December a significant (?) quantity of oil will enter the market.  The impact of this anticipated expansion of supply has been felt through a slight easing of prices.  Reports state that farmers are selling stocks of crude oil now in anticipation of further reductions.  Any spurt in demand before the end of the year will likely cut into these price reductions.

Eucalyptus & Eucalyptol


July 2016

We have received a report that a major Chinese trading company has secured the majority of oil produced during December and January. This company has been releasing limited amounts of Eucalyptus every month, keeping prices high.  Both frost damage and agricultural labor currently being devoted to food crops add to the expectation that the market will be firm for the foreseeable future.

EUCALYPTUS OIL & EUCALYPTOL


April 2016

First hand accounts of the eucalyptus trees in southern Yunnan describe severe damage caused by cold.  Pictures show Eucalyptus trees either barren or covered only in dead, dried leaves.  The exact extent of the damage and potential for recovery is unknown but we foresee an increase in price at least for the short term.  If new Oil hits the market at its traditional time in July prices might begin to soften.

EUCALYPTUS OIL & EUCALYPTOL


December 2015

With new Oil entering the market, we hope to see quality issues on Eucalyptus Oil begin to diminish.  With this influx we have seen a slight softening in pricing from origin.  Historically, this softening continues through February but the last two years have deviated from that trend with rising prices.  Eucalyptol continues to follow the price for Eucalyptus Oil.

November 2015

Quality issues with Eucalyptus samples are becoming more common, possibly due to the issues caused by heavy rains during the summer months.  With reportedly strong demand and little carryover, it’s possible that producers rushed production to get product to market more quickly. With new Oil expected to enter the market in December, we expect that pressures currently pushing up prices will dissipate.
