Second Quarter Projections

Looking ahead, projections indicate that the average monthly arrival of soybeans in the second quarter is expected to hover around 10 million tonnes. This sustained import volume reflects China’s ongoing demand for soybeans to meet various domestic needs.

Anticipated Trends

Over the next two weeks, the trajectory of imported soybean stocks is forecasted to continue declining. However, attention will be directed towards the arrival of South American soybeans in late April. With this anticipated influx, imported soybean stocks are expected to rebound, easing concerns about supply tightness.

Market Focus

Market watchers remain attentive to developments regarding the loading and arrival schedules of imported soybeans. Timely and efficient arrivals will play a crucial role in maintaining a stable supply chain and meeting China’s soybean demand in the coming months.
