According to USDA, the Indian restriction will eliminate the trade of broken rice.

The Indian government’s ban on exports of broken rice will eliminate its trade that had increased 53 percent last year, the US Department of Agriculture (USDA) said.

In 2021, the global broken rice trade was 6.7 million tonnes (mt) and in the first half of 2022, it was up 39 percent at 4.8 mt. Since India contributed to over 50 percent of the global broken rice trade, its new policy — to ban its exports— will “eliminate this trade”, the USDA said in its Grain: World Markets and Trade report.
