The tropical fruits market in Spain is projected to register a CAGR of 2.5% during the forecast period (2022-2027). Spain is Europe’s garden for fresh fruit and vegetables. It is also an important transit hub for fresh products from Morocco. The country was hugely affected by COVID-19 and was in a state of emergency. Spanish avocado prices rose in 2021, especially for the Hass variety and Hybrid-Fuerte variety, which is quite popular among consumers. However, Spanish people have been conscious of healthy diets since the COVID-19 pandemic.

Spain is a large producer of fresh fruit and its dominant role in the fresh sector has resulted in increasing imports with a larger volume from non-European countries and has the potential to become a trade hub for fresh produce from non-non-European countries. Avocados represent the highest value in the Spanish imports of fresh fruit from non-European suppliers and making the country more attractive for international trade and as an access point into Europe. Spain is advancing in well-structured logistics and the expansion of services and packaging solutions.

Various agricultural policies have paved the way for the development of the fresh produce supply chain at all levels, as it is the vital component of the overall strategy for addressing global market competition for oranges. This enhances the performance and competitiveness of the countries on the import and export front. The increased disposable income and high spending capacity on health and related products enable the sales of fresh produce in developed regions such as Europe and North America. In 2020, Egypt exported almost 300,000 tons to EU countries, consolidating its position as the leading non-EU supplier in the Mediterranean, in direct competition with Spain.

Thus, the factors such as increased demand from processing industries, increasing awareness of the health benefits of fruits, growing consciousness of health, and increasing incomes of consumers are propelling the growth of the market studied during the forecast period.

Key Market Trends

Increasing Popularity Among Health-Conscious Consumers

With increasing urbanization and higher disposable incomes in developed countries, along with increased awareness about healthy diets, people are shifting toward healthier diet plans, which include fresh fruits. The increasing initiatives by the government to improve the health of consumers of developing countries have positively impacted the market for fruits like mangoes, avocados, and blueberries. The urban population is gradually becoming more aware of the origin and type of food consumed, including brands of avocado like Fruto Rojo-fusica and Yellow fruit. This has prompted growers to supply high-quality products and adopt different distribution channels like hypermarkets/supermarkets and online channels to meet the growing demands of consumers.

The dragon fruit has high water content and is a good source of iron, magnesium, B vitamins, phosphorus, protein, calcium, and fiber. The fruit’s edible seeds are also nutritious, as they are high in polyunsaturated fats, like omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, which have been shown to lower the risk of cardiovascular disorders. Mango contains 99 calories, 1.4 grams of protein, 25 grams of carbs, and 0.6 grams of fat are found in one cup of raw mango chunks (165g). Mangoes, particularly varieties like Osteen, Kent, Tommy Atkins, and Red Palme, are a great source of vitamin C, vitamin E, and folate.

Antioxidants can help protect or delay your body’s cells from damage from free radicals (which experts believe may be a cause of cancer, atherosclerosis, and other diseases. Henceforth, the shift toward healthier diet from conventional diet, along with the increased awareness among consumers for these fruits, is expected to drive the market during the forecast period.

Dragon Fruit Can Withstand Weather Fluctuation And Poor Soil

The dragon fruit is tolerant of drought, heat, and poor soil. It is also tolerant of cold, however, damage to the plant is apparent if temperatures dip below freezing for a long period of time, but the plant usually recovers quickly from shorter durations of freezing temperatures.

Due to this, dragon fruit is a particularly ideal plant that may be produced in areas where other fruits and vegetables cannot. This fruit can be grown on a wide range of soils, from sandy loam to clay loam. Though the tropical climate is ideal for red skin red pulp dragon fruit cultivation, the crop being sturdy can survive in any type of climatic condition favorable for flowering and fruiting and soil condition provided with good drainage. Not much disease generally affects this plant, common problems, like root rot, sunburn, and bird attacks, can generally be taken care of with relative ease. Therefore, many farmers are picking up dragon fruit cultivation in regions where it has never been cultivated before. There is a potential for off-season production of dragon fruit, including red skin red pulp variety.

Dragon fruits are a relatively long-lived perennial and can produce their first fruits within one year of their establishment. It can continue to fruit annually for 20 to 30 years before with marginal care and cultural conditions. Hence, the fact that these plants can be grown in relatively adverse conditions, in opposition to other fruits that require optimum growth environment, its cultivation is steadily becoming more popular, thereby contributing to the growth of the market.
