Black pepper is native to India and is extensively cultivated there and in tropical regions. The spiciness of black pepper is due to the chemical piperine.
The aroma of black pepper is spicy, musky, warm, and or course peppery!
Most people associate black pepper as a spice for flavouring but therapeutically, black pepper oil is mostly used as a supplement for digestive and nervous system support and wellness.
The major producers of black pepper oil include Vietnam, India, Brazil, Indonesia, Sri Lanka, China and Thailand.
In 2014 India exported approximately 90MT of black pepper oil of which 45% went to Europe and 25% into the USA.
Farmers are moving away from pepper due to unpredictable weather. With this, the area under cultivation has declined. Production volumes are expected to reduce in 2023 and settle somewhere in the range of 53,000 MT. Reduced global demand and imports from other countries have put pressure on Indian pepper prices.
