Exports of the soy complex through the Port of Paranaguá grow 25% in the 1st quarter

Exports of the soy complex through the Port of Paranaguá are on the rise. In the first three months of this year, 4,974,237 tons of product loads in grain, oil and bran were shipped through the Paraná terminals. The volume is almost 25% higher than the 3,987,702 tonnes shipped in Q1 2021.

The biggest increase was registered in net exports, that is, soybean oil: 57.3%. There were 327,975 tons exported in the first three months of this year against 208,529 tons loaded in the period, in 2021.

This year, while exports are on the rise, there was also no record of any volume imported from the soy complex. In the first quarter of last year, nearly 45,500 tons of soybean oil were imported.

“It seems that, despite the crop failure, a good part of the production has also been in the domestic market”, said the CEO of Portos do Paraná, Luiz Fernando Garcia.

SOLID – Soybean meal exported in the last quarter was 1,342,739 tons; volume 38.4% higher than the 970,140 tons registered last year.

“Paraná has one of the main soybean crushing parks in Brazil. In fact, the trend is for the country to import soy beans and export the bran, which has greater added value”, says Garcia.

In soybean exports, the increase was 17.6%. This year, from January to March, 3,303,523 tons of bulk were shipped through Paranaguá. In the same period, in 2021, there were 2,809,033 tons.

SOYBEAN – According to data from the State Department of Agriculture and Supply (Seab), in Paraná the volume of soybeans produced in this crop is between 11.6 and 12 million tons. The last survey pointed to a drop close to 45%

According to economist Marcelo Garrido, from the Department of Rural Economy (Deral) at Seab, the soybean shipped from the Port of Paranaguá, in these first months of the year, is part of products from the past harvest and another from the harvest that is being finalized.

“In the last three years, the average exported soybean in Paraná was approximately 59% of the amount produced”, he says. According to him, the rest is what is left in the domestic market.

Regarding the high observed in exports by the state’s terminals, Garrido explains that it reflects the increase in food demand in the world.

“In recent years, world consumption has grown and has meant that exports from food producing countries have followed this demand,” he says.

Another factor that has favored Brazil in recent years, according to him, are exchange rates, which in general have benefited Brazilian products in the international market.

With less product available and growing domestic demand, the Deral economist believes that the tendency is for the volumes to be exported in this and in the coming months to be reduced. “As we had a smaller harvest this year, and the domestic demand is great, it is possible that there is even a need for imports”, adds Garrido.
