    Oranges market frequently asked questions

    Beroe’s research study opines that orange market players continue to mine lucrative growth prospects from Asia, the US, and Europe, which collectively produce more than 70% of the overall fruit yield. Further, the Asia Pacific (APAC) minimally processed industry is picking pace, given the rising consumption of convenient food.

    Brazil’s orange exports have surged by nearly 30% in few months, attributed to robust demand from the US, grappling with severe shortages due to hurricane loss and citrus greening.

    Factors such as reduced demand due to economic downturn in leading importing regions as well as adverse weather and rising crop diseases in emerging regions triggered the trade deficit of fresh oranges in 2019.

    Processing increases the shelf life, enables worldwide transportation, and helps extend the export base with decreased wastage. In addition, it provides myriads of opportunities for value addition and portfolio expansion, helping the players remain competitive in the global orange market.

    Beroe’s market study highlights countries, such as Egypt, as emerging orange exporters, given the increasing availability and demand for vitamin C-rich foods worldwide.

    The US orange production volume is likely to witness a decline by around 1 million boxes versus the previous year (71.4 million boxes).

    Given the prevalent fear among consumers about the COVID-19 infection, the demand for oranges and other citrus fruits have tremendously increased as they are rich in immune-boosting nutrients.

    Oranges market report transcript

    Global Overview of the Orange Industry

    The US, Europe, and Asia are expected to produce over 70 percent of the global fruit supply. Highest growth can be expected in the minimal processed sector, with APAC having the highest CAGR, owing to increased demand for convenient food and rise in the living standard.

    • For the next citrus season, the World Citrus Organization has issued its annual Northern Hemisphere Citrus Forecast (2022-23). Citrus production is anticipated to be 25,958,275 tons, a 13 percent decline from last season. It is anticipated that the overall number of oranges produced will drop by 11.79 percent to 13,995,754 tons

    • Due to the large-scale COVID-19 outbreak worldwide, the demand for oranges and other citrus fruits was in high demand in the countries affected because they are rich in vitamin C

    Oranges – Global Trade Dynamics

    • Along with a loss in production, trade is anticipated to be hampered by higher freight costs, rising fuel prices, and other logistic challenges. Although recent increases in the US orange production are likely to increase local availability, they would not be sufficient to meet demand overall, thus import dependence on Brazil is likely to endure until supply conditions improve even further

    • Following a 32% decline from the season before, the 2022 Chilean citrus fruit season saw the lowest export volume in recent history. Overall, the nation exported 268,100 tons of citrus, of which 33% were mandarins, 30% were oranges, 21% were lemons, and 16% were clementines

    • In 2023, the Peru Citrus Producers Association (ProCitrus) anticipates a 4.24% growth from the 259,000 tons in the previous season to 270,000 tons. ProCitrus estimates that 270,000 tons of oranges, tangerines, limes, lemons, and grapefruit will be exported worldwide in 2023.

    • In February 2023, the EU imported 48,570 tons of oranges, around 20,000 tons more than the previous month. Most of these imports came from Egypt (44,441 tons). About 3,590 tons were obtained from other sources, with Morocco finishing in third place (539 tons).

    Cost Structure Analysis: Oranges

    • High fertilizer costs, owing to supply shortage, due to export bans from Russia, is likely to intensify production costs significantly, in addition to higher water and transportation costs

    • Apart from irrigation and labor costs, crop protection, revival from disease and pest attacks would be the major cost parameter in the coming year

    Industry Drivers and Constraints : Oranges


    • Year Around Availability and Convenience: Given factors, like seasonality and perishability, processing make it possible to preserve and consume fruits throughout the year

    • Wide Product Portfolio: Processing offers a range of opportunities for value addition and widening product portfolio, which help the players to stay competitive in the market

    • Reduces Perishability and Wastage: Processing increases shelf life, facilitates transport worldwide, helps to expand export base with reduced spoilage

    • Globalization: Increasing consumer awareness and immigration of varied ethnic groups drive imports and processing of non-locally produced fruit products that need to be transported and stored efficiently

    • Rise in per Capita Income: Urbanization, changing lifestyle, increasing focus on health and wellness, higher disposable incomes, and evolving consumption habits have spurred the need for convenient food that is easy to consume, also wholesome and nutritious


    • Supply Uncertainty: There is no guarantee of consistent supply of fruits, which depend on weather and harvest. The producing region’s economic condition could cause price volatility, especially fruits, imported from the developing countries

    • Capital Intensive: Decrease in conventionally processed fruits, owing to an increasing preference for minimally processed fruit products, call for processors to keep up with evolving trends. The switching cost is high and can be afforded only by large players, leaving the small and medium-level processors at a disadvantage

    • Access to Raw Materials: New entrants face challenges in securing raw materials supply at early stages of operations and are prone to high cost fluctuation risks
