Agricultural Commodities Price Outlook

Fears of oversupply hit price outlook for Q4 2018

The agricultural commodity index was downgraded this month and is expected to average 125.9 in Q4 2018, which is 1.0% lower compared to August. Surging supply for a number of agricultural commodities is keeping prices subdued. That said, the index is seen rising from 120.4 in Q4 2017 as a result of healthy demand.

Behind this month’s outlook were downgraded forecasts for seven commodities including cocoa, coffee, soybeans and sugar. However, corn’s forecast was upgraded, while oats’ projection was left unchanged.
