[shareaholic app="share_buttons" id="13106399"]

IndexBox has just published a new report: ‘World – Mandarin and Clementine – Market Analysis, Forecast, Size, Trends and Insights‘. Here is a summary of the report’s key findings.

Turkey and China, the leading exporters in the global mandarin market, are to sharply ramp up supplies abroad with rapidly expanding production in 2022. This year, outputs in Turkey and China are forecast to grow by 9% y/y to 1.8M tonnes and by 12% y/y to 28M tonnes, respectively, due to favourable weather and larger harvested areas.

Global mandarin and clementine production is forecast to rise by 2.8% y/y to 39M tonnes, thanks primarily to expected favourable weather and higher area and yields in China, Turkey, Morocco. Exports from these countries are projected to accelerate, driven by sharping demand from the EU and the U.S., where production is set to drop with unfavourable weather.

Turkey, one of the leading mandarin exporters worldwide, is to expand its supplies abroad by 11% y/y to 1M tonnes this year, while China’s exports are to increase by 5% y/y to over 900K tonnes. In 2022, mandarin production in Turkey and China is forecast to grow by 9% y/y to 1.8M tonnes and by 12% y/y to 28M tonnes, respectively. Exports from Morocco are to pick up 8% y/y to 500K tonnes, with Russia comprising over 30% of the total shipments and thus remaining the leading buyer for Moroccan mandarins.
