In July 2020, the ICO composite indicator increased by 4.7% to an average of 103.66 US cents/lb, following three months of declines.

Global exports in June 2020 amounted to 10.57 million bags, 5.3% lower than June 2019 while shipments in the first nine months of coffee year 2019/20 reached 95.36 million bags, 5.1% lower than the same period last year. The majority of coffee continues to be exported as green coffee, accounting for 90.4% of total coffee shipped between October 2019 and June 2020. Soluble coffee shipments accounted for 9.1%, of the total, an increase of 1 percentage point from one year ago, while roasted coffee shipments represented just 0.5%. A 2.9% decrease in global production to 168.01 million bags has contributed to the lower volume of shipments.
