Cashew Nut Prices Continue to Rise: High Demand, Limited Supply

Cashew nut prices on the global market have continued to rise this week, driven by strong buying demand from countries like the US, China, and the EU.


  • W320 increased from 2.70-2.75 USD/Lb to 2.80-2.85 USD/Lb.
  • W240 increased from 2.95-3.00 USD/Lb to 3.05-3.10 USD/Lb.
  • W210 increased from 3.25-3.30 USD/Lb to 3.35-3.40 USD/Lb.
  • W180 increased from 3.70-3.75 USD/Lb to 3.80-3.85 USD/Lb.
  • LP prices also increased slightly, ranging from 1.90-1.95 USD/Lb.

Factors driving up cashew nut prices:

  • Strong buying demand from countries like the US, China, and the EU. The demand for cashew nuts in these regions is always high and continues to grow, especially during holidays.
  • Limited supply due to weather and disease impacts. Cashew nut yields this year have decreased due to unfavorable weather conditions, and the COVID-19 pandemic has also made cashew nut harvesting and processing activities more difficult.
  • High freight rates. The cost of shipping cashews by sea has recently increased significantly, contributing to higher cashew nut prices.


Forecast for the cashew nut market:

  • Many experts predict that cashew nut prices will continue to rise in the short term. Strong demand and limited supply will be the main factors supporting cashew nut prices.
  • However, cashew nut prices may be impacted to some extent by global economic fluctuations, changes in countries’ trade policies, and weather conditions.

To minimize risks and take advantage of market opportunities, Vietnamese cashew nut processors should:

  • Diversify export markets. Instead of just focusing on a few traditional markets, businesses should look for opportunities to export to new and potential markets.
  • Increase raw material reserves. Having a sufficient supply of raw materials will help businesses take the initiative in production and meet market demand when cashew nut prices increase.
  • Improve production and business efficiency. Applying advanced technologies, improving labor productivity, and reducing production costs will help businesses compete better in the market.

In addition to the efforts of businesses, the Vietnamese government also needs to have appropriate support policies to promote sustainable development of the cashew industry.
