China's Rice Imports Exceed Record 3.2M Tonnes with Skyrocketed Purchases from India

IndexBox has just published a new report: 'China - Rice - Market Analysis, Forecast, Size, Trends and Insights. Here is a summary of the report's key findings.

Throughout January-August 2021, China's rice imports reached 3.2M tonnes, the highest level ever. India sharply boosted supplies of broken rice to 1M tonnes, emerging as the largest exporter to China. Broken rice purchases from other leading suppliers, Vietnam, Pakistan and Thailand, have also risen.

According to a recent USDA report, the flow of foreign supplies into China's rice market has sharply increased due to spiking demand for broken rice for animal feeding. From January to August 2021, China imported record 3.2M tonnes of rice, whereas broken rice represented half of the total volume. India became the largest rice supplier to China, exporting unprecedented 1M tonnes of broken rice during this period with competitive prices relative to domestic ones in China. In value terms, purchases from India amounted to over $225M. The broken rice is primarily used for feed, snack and liquor manufacturing.

Broken rice purchases from other leading suppliers, namely Myanmar, Vietnam, Pakistan and Thailand, have also increased. Shipments from Pakistan soared from $24M to $90M in 2021 for January through August. Imports from Vietnam jumped from $131M to $150M over the same period, while Thailand's supplies soared from $25M to $44M. Myanmar boosted its broken rice exports to China from $41M to $81M.

Myanmar (911K tonnes), Vietnam (788K tonnes) and Pakistan (475K tonnes) were the leading suppliers of rice imports to China, together comprising 75% of the total volume. These countries were followed by Thailand, Cambodia, Taiwan (Chinese) and Lao People's Democratic Republic, which accounted for 25%.

In value terms, Vietnam ($452M), Myanmar ($324M) and Thailand ($242M) were the largest rice suppliers to China, with a combined 70% share of total imports. Pakistan, Cambodia, Lao People's Democratic Republic and Taiwan (Chinese) lagged somewhat behind, together comprising a further 30%.

In 2020, China's average rice import price amounted to $501 per tonne, flattening from the previous year. Prices varied noticeably by the country of origin; the country with the highest price was Thailand ($746 per tonne), while the price for Myanmar ($356 per tonne) was amongst the lowest. In 2020, the most notable rate of growth in terms of prices was attained by Lao People's Democratic Republic, while the prices for the other significant suppliers experienced more modest paces of growth.
