New Delhi, May 17, 2024 (Commoditiescontrol): The bearish trend in mentha oil continued on Friday as market sentiments remained dampened by expectations of a higher yield. Anticipation of fresh crop arrivals next month, coupled with reports of favorable crop conditions, has raised hopes for increased production. Furthermore, subdued demand for natural mint products, overshadowed by the availability of synthetic alternatives, has contributed to the downward pressure on prices.

Both the physical market and futures prices of mentha oil witnessed declines. In Chandausi market, mentha oil prices fell by Rs 6 to Rs 1002-1004 per kilogram. Similarly, prices dropped by Rs 6 to Rs 972 per kilogram in the Barabanki market.

At the Multi Commodity Exchange (MCX), mentha oil futures contracts for delivery in May and June experienced downward movement. The May contract traded Rs 10.8 lower at Rs 926.3 per kilogram, with an open interest of 315 and a volume of 50. Meanwhile, the June contract traded Rs 14.9 down at Rs 936.3 per kilogram, with an open interest of 320 and a volume of 54.

Market analysts suggest that the prevailing bearish sentiment in mentha oil markets is driven by the anticipation of abundant supply in the upcoming months, as well as the relatively weak demand for natural mint products compared to synthetic alternatives.
