NEW DELHI. The Indian sesame seed market lacks demand from overseas. However, market players are optimistic after the price developments of the last few weeks.

Traders are optimistic

The Indian sesame seed market is keeping its currently relying on tender participations and good domestic demand; apart from that, buying interest from overseas is rather low. Depending on variety and quality, prices for Indian sesame seeds have risen by USD 400-600/mt since the summer crop became available at origin. The significantly higher freight costs this year have also contributed to curbing demand, not to mention the uncertainty and higher costs associated with the new ethylene oxide residue regulations for shipment
