TIANJIN: According to feedback from market participants, the sunflower seed market is better than the pumpkin seed market. Sunflower seeds have entered the peak sales season and the domestic market demand has greatly increased. The domestic market is better than the export market.

Affected by market demand, domestic sunflower seed prices rose slightly. In terms of exports, the market was affected by the epidemic and ocean freight, and the number of exports was lower than last year, mainly due to the substantial increase in import costs for buyers. The purchasing power of traditional export regions such as Egypt, Israel, Saudi Arabia and Turkey has declined.

The Southeast Asian market, which is less affected by the shipping market, is better than last year. Shipping costs are much lower than those in Europe and America, and sales are increasing. The particle size of 361 standard sunflower seeds this week is 180-190/50g. The export price is US$1.320-1.350/ton, and the price of COUNT 190-200PCS/50G is US$ 1.280-1310/ton. Traders continue to pay attention to market changes.
