    Strawberries market report transcript

    Global Market Outlook on Strawberries 

    • The global production of strawberries is estimated to register at a CAGR of 4-5 percent between 2023 and 2027

    • Demand from processed food segment is rising, due to increased usage in pastries and cakes. Consumption of fresh fruits, on the whole, is also displaying an increasing trend, due to various health benefits associated. This is likely to increase in the upcoming years


    Strawberries Global Supply–Demand Analysis

    • Global strawberry production in 2022/23 is estimated to reach 9.33 MMT, supported by rising acreage and yields in regions, like China, California, Mexico, Egypt, etc. Quality of fruit is deemed to be excellent this season

    • However, temporary supply tightness is likely caused in some regions by any decline in production, owing to adverse weather conditions and logistic issues

    Strawberries: Top Producing Regions (2022 E)

    • During the first nine weeks of 2023, Florida accounted for 40 percent of the market's volume for fresh strawberries. Despite volume declining in January mostly because of cool, rainy weather, the State's recovering volume in February helped to raise shipments through March 4 by 1 percent y-o-y

    • Through March 4, 6 percent of fresh strawberry volume in California came from the South Coast; however, due to heavy rains, volume was down 56 percent from the previous year. In late February and into March, coastal California strawberry regions were once more flooded by severe rainstorms, which had an impact on the fruit's quality, volume, and yield

    • This year's bad weather has led to greater production costs, reduced volumes, and a change in the strawberry kinds used, according to Egyptian strawberry growers, who are concerned about the situation. As a result, the cost of strawberries in Egypt has significantly increased, reaching a level of $0.5 per kg

    Cost Structure Analysis: Strawberries

    • Surging fertilizer costs due to severe shortage is likely to drive up production costs. Anticipation of a rise in global fuel prices due to Russia-Ukraine war could further add to production costs

    • Rising labor costs and water scarcity in major producing regions could increase production costs for 2022, except for Mexico, which has lower labor costs, making it attractive for strawberry cultivation

    Cost Parameters in Production and Harvest

    • Fertlizer shortages and logistics challenges are the major cost increasing factors in the current year

    • Labor cost is vital for strawberry harvest and lack of labor availability could lead to crop losses

    • In major producing regions, such as the UK, political and trade scenarios, like the recent Brexit, is impacting trade and could also impact labor rates and regulations whoch would have a sognificant impact

    • Drought, lack of labor, regulatory restraints have led to rising production costs and decease in acreage of strawberries in California

    • The high cost of drilling wells and low labor costs in neighboring Mexico are the challenges faced by the US strawberry growers

    • Drip type irrigation is usually employed for strawberry production, as strawberries require frequent but less water and excessive irrigation that can cause rotting

    Industry Drivers and Constraints : Strawberries


    • Year around Availability and Convenience: Given factors like seasonality and perishability, processing makes 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 stay competitive in the market

    • Reduces Perishability and Wastage: Processing increases shelf life, facilitates transport worldwide, helps 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 and 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 developing countries

    • Capital Intensive: Decrease in conventionally processed fruits, owing to increasing preference for minimally processed fruit products call for processors to keep up with evolving trends.

    • The switching cost is very 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
