Anticipated COVID-19 Impact on Vanilla Bean Market

The unfortunate spread of COVID-19 disease is affecting the global economy, and every industry is currently facing unwanted consequences due to this global pandemic. The food & beverage industry is also strongly fighting this frightful situation, and balancing supply and demand measures for substantial growth of the industry.

Vanilla bean production has been hit by the COVID-19 outbreak, as vanilla bean cultivation from plants has been affected due to a dip in production. Since vanilla beans are produced and imported from limited countries, this may affect the supply chain. The demand for vanilla beans has also plummeted in the food & beverage industry.

Reduced consumption of away-from-home food is also a considerable factor that could restraint market growth, as the major vanilla bean buyers are foodservice providers and food manufacturers. Additionally, use of processed vanilla in cosmetics and personal care products could fall, as cosmetic manufacturers have also reduced their production output.

As the virus spreads and lockdowns increase, there are seemingly countless ways the food system will be tested and strained in the coming months and quarters. However, after the end of this global pandemic, the production of vanilla beans is projected to face a rise that subsequently benefits the vanilla bean market.

The COVID-19 disease outbreak is expected have a moderate impact on the global vanilla bean market. The cyclical production of vanilla will not be impacted by the COVID-19 crisis; the impact will be mainly in the supply chain for raw material supplies to vanilla processors and exporters supplying the product across the globe.
