Brazil Exchange Rate

Brazil Exchange Rate

Exchange Rate in Brazil

From 2013 to 2022, the Brazilian real faced significant depreciation, largely due to political turmoil, economic instability, and low commodity prices early in the period. Government efforts to stabilize the economy had mixed results, and by 2022, the real remained weak against major currencies, reflecting ongoing economic and political challenges in Brazil. That said, the currency did manage to claw back some ground in 2022 on high interest rates and a jump in commodity prices.

The exchange rate ended 2022 at BRL 5.28 per USD, compared to the end-2021 value of BRL 5.57 per USD and the figure a decade earlier of BRL 2.36 per USD. For more exchange rate information, visit our dedicated page.
