Global trade in millet is estimated to range between 200,000 and 300,000 tons
(Table 4a and b), representing roughly 0.1 percent of world trade in cereals or 1.0
percent of world millet production. The major exporters are India, the United States,
Argentina and China, which together supply about two-thirds of recorded exports.
A sizeable proportion (about 100,000 tons) of the recorded international
trade is in proso millet, exported by the United States, Argentina and Australia
to other developed countries. Another 60,000 tons are pearl millet exports by India.
In recent years, China has started to some quantities of foxtail .
International trade in millet is controlled by a few specialized trading companies
and generally conducted on a sample basis. Only Argentina is reported to have
established official export quality standards. International prices are highly volatile,
determined largely by supply volumes, and are usually unrelated to those of other
major coarse grains such as maize, sorghum or barley. Quotations4 are not regularly
published or recorded according to official statistics. Table 5 therefore compares prices
for in Argentina, Australia and the United States. The high degree of price variability
among suppliers, even in the same year,export millet is due to the “thin” market,
with small trade volumes and very few buyers and sellers
