What the global pulse market trend is like

Global production of pulse crops increases steadily and is predicted to reach 60 MMT by 2020. The greatest contributor to this gain is expected to be the Black Sea region.

In response to the increasing demand from both the European and Asian markets, the Black Sea countries have been expanding their planted areas for a second year in a row.

Significant expansion of the planted acreage

Pea plantings expand against the 2015 low both in Russia and Ukraine. Ukraine’s pea crop hit a 20-year high in 2017.

Foreign demand

While domestic consumption of pulses is still limited, the key factor promoting production is foreign demand. Black Sea pulses are in demand from both Europe and the fast-growing Asian market.


In the 2017/18 season, Ukraine and Russia have joined the ranks of the world’s largest pea exporters this season and, in all probability, they intend to reinforce their market positions in future.


Specialization within the region

While Ukraine has focused on growing of peas, Russia and Kazakhstan produce significant volumes of chickpeas and lentils, respectively. Over just three years, Kazakh lentil plantings expanded from 7 Th ha to more than 300 Th ha sown for the 2017 harvest.
