    FAO often undertakes projections of production, demand, and trade for all major agricultural commodities as a basis for medium-term commodity analysis. These projections are an important input for FAO’s commodity outlook work, for global perspective studies and as background for policy consultations on individual commodities. Outside FAO, these projections are used by national planning agencies, international research institutions and other national and international organizations requiring a ba se reference for strategies in national agricultural commodity planning and investment. This particular publication puts the focus on a set of selected Raw materials, Horticulture and Tropical (RAMHOT) Products, namely sugar, tea, banana, tropical fruits, citrus products, Jute, and hard fibres. A medium-term outlook is generated for each of these products, and an analysis is undertaken to assess underlying market drivers and the factors likely to shape market performance over the next 10 years.
