Country-wise Analysis

Why is There Rising Truffle Cultivation in Germany?

According to Fact.MR, sales of truffles are increasing in the European market at a CAGR of 5.4%, and are expected to rise to a market value of US$ 202 Mn. This is mainly due to rising cultivation of the product every year in the country.

Truffles have traditionally been imported from France, Italy, or Spain, but this is soon to change, as farmers and private persons have begun cultivating burgundy truffles (tuber aestivum var. uncinatum), which are expected to grow in popularity over the coming years.

Will Limited Restrictions on Truffle Harvesting in China Boost Market Growth?

China holds 58.6% of the East Asia truffles market. Demand for truffles in the country stands at a market volume of 121,869 Kg, and is expected to surge at a CAGR of 8.2% in terms of volume.

This expansion is because there are not many government regulations at present in China for truffle harvesting. This helps in the barrier-free harvesting of truffles, as such, increasing availability and demand for truffle mushrooms in the Chinese market.

How are Innovative Farming Methods Driving the U.S. Truffles Market?

The U.S. truffles market is expected to experience a rise in market share from 90.7% at present to 93.7% in North America by 2031, and to reach a market value of US$ 161.3 Mn.

The reason for this boost in the U.S. is that many farmers choose to develop innovative methods for harvesting truffles, such as proper irrigation procedures, growing truffle trees (hazelnuts, oaks, and other species), etc. This is successfully aiding natural growth of truffles on U.S. land, thereby, promoting the growth of the market for truffles in the country.

An Adaptive Approach to Modern-day Research Needs

COVID-19 Impact on Truffles Market

As demand for restaurant-based food declines and demand for online purchases and groceries rises, COVID-19 has accelerated the implementation of non-traditional food delivery strategies. Despite these shifts in consumer behavior, consumption patterns in some areas have remained relatively stable (e.g., Europe).

This makes sense because food consumption is often thought to be inelastic. Because this manifestation of aversion behavior has influenced key purchase modalities, COVID-19 may have reshaped how consumers acquire food, but it has had little impact on how much they consume.
