The European and American markets have strict requirements, and the number of orders has decreased. The United States is affected by import tariffs and shipping, which increases the procurement cost of importers and reduces the number of purchases. The Southeast Asian market has a small order volume. Conventional products are the main products, organic products are expensive, and the export volume is limited. In addition, sea freight rates in Europe and the United States have fallen again, and export costs have dropped significantly. Exporters hope to clear their inventories by summer. The export situation is difficult to change in the short term and exporters want to reduce procurement costs and improve the market. Pay close attention to market changes.
