Citrus pectin market opportunity assessment

Plunging Citrus Production to Create a Substantial Rise in Citrus Pectin Prices

A global decline in the production of citrus fruits has been observed in recent years. The unprecedented challenges in citrus pectin production, such as tight supply and high costs of citrus fruits, are likely to put immense pressure on citrus pectin supply and production costs in the foreseeable future.

As orange is a key raw material used in the manufacturing of citrus pectin, a slump in its production may negatively impact the growth of the citrus pectin market. According to a biannual report published by United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), the global orange production was decreased in 2018 due to unfavorable weather.

Orange juice has been reported to be on the rebound in 2019 as per the July 2019 report. Orange juice production in the United States is forecasted to grow by 75% in 2019. The import of orange juice is forecasted to reduce by 16% in 2019. A similar pattern of surge for citrus fruits in the market can be expected in 2019.

Thereby, the plunging supply of citrus peel and increased citrus prices is likely to result in an upsurge in citrus pectin production costs, impacting the overall growth of the citrus pectin market in the coming years.
