Today, the global rice trade is a dynamic and constantly evolving space. Global rice stocks are expected to increase, due to record production.

Analysts are forecasting that year-end stocks for the 2016/17 season will be at their highest level in over a decade, while production is expected to be up by almost 10 million tonnes against the previous year.

However, we still need to consider the dominant features of the complex rice market environment, such as high levels of segmentation and the concentration of exports; not forgetting strong government intervention, state trading, self sufficiency agendas, and large informal flows, amongst others.
