Thai long grain rice exports falter amid competitive Indian prices.
Jan 13, 2021

According to the US Department of Agriculture, Thai 2020 milled rice exports -– excluding Fragrant rice –- totaled 4.2 million mt as of Dec. 27, down 28% year on year. To make matters worse, 2019's year-end total of 5.8 million mt was down 39% from 2018.
 
Examining 2020 export figures, the situation is even bleaker for standard long grain exporters. White and parboiled rice accounted for 73% of total 2019 exports, according to the Thai Rice Exporters Association (TREA).
 
From January-November, white and parboiled rice only accounted for 65% of the year's reduced export total.
