'It may never happen' - trends in international markets for tropical produce

Documents de Travail en Economie des Filieres, CIRAD ( 19): 37 pp.
'It may never happen' - trends in international markets for tropical produce
An analysis of trends over the past forty years in international markets in four tropical products, cocoa, coffee, rubber and cotton, is presented. Detailed statistics are provided showing changes in price, consumption, production and stock levels. There has been relatively sustained growth in demand over the period, but big rises and falls have occurred in prices, because of the cyclical nature of production, instability of supply, and problems with stocking.
