    COMMODITY MARKET REVIEW 2003-2004 2003
    Also available in:

    The present issue of the Commodity Market Review (CMR) marks a significant departure from past issues of the same named FAO publication. In the past the main focus of the CMR was a review of developments in agricultural commodity markets, a description of the current situation, and a short term outlook for these commodities. The CMR 2001-2002 departed somewhat from this format, by including some short analytical articles, that tried to explain in more detail the factors that shape commodity mark et developments. In the past few years, the situation and outlook of food and agricultural commodities is being presented on the Commodities and Trade Division Web pages of the FAO Web site at www.fao.org (under “Departments” ES, Commodities and Trade Division) or directly at www.fao.org/ES/esc. This form of information provides greater scope for timely dissemination of detailed market information and more frequent updating than what is possible with conventional printed publications. The Web pages have undergone redesign that has made them more accessible and more user friendly. It is thus unnecessary to repeat the same information in printed form.

    In view of the soaring input prices,concerns about the weather, and increased market uncertainties stemming from the war in Ukraine, FAO’s latest forecasts point to a likely tightening of food markets in 2022. Meanwhile, the global food import bill is on course to hit a new record high of USD 1.8 trillion, an all-time high, almost entirely on account of higher prices. Issued twice a year, Food Outlook offers FAO’s reviews of market supply and demand trends for the world’s major foodstuffs, including cereals, oilcrops, sugar, meat and dairy and fish. It also looks at trends in futures markets and shipping costs for food commodities. The new edition also contains two special chapters examining the role of rising prices for agricultural inputs, such as fuel and fertilizers, and the risks the war in Ukraine poses for global food commodity markets. Food Outlook is published by the Markets and Trade Division of FAO as part of the Global Information and Early Warning System (GIEWS). Food Outlook maintains a close synergy with another major GIEWS publication, Crop Prospects, and Food Situation, especially with regard to the coverage of cereals. Food Outlook is available in English. The summary section is also available in Arabic, Chinese, French, Russian, and Spanish.
