Algeria Fruits & Vegetables Market Trends

This section covers the major market trends shaping the Algeria Fruits & Vegetables Market according to our research experts:

Potato Dominates the Market

  • Potato is a critical crop in Algeria due to the favorable climate conditions and higher per capita consumption rates. According to the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), potato is one of the primary vegetables in the Algerian market, with potato production accounting for 4.4 million metric tons in 2021. 
  • However, there has been a gradual decrease in the area under potato cultivation from 2018 to 2021 - a decrease of 8.6% due to the non-availability of true potato seeds (TPS) that help to increase yield. TPS is the name given to the seeds from potato fruits, which breeders can use to develop new varieties. Unlike seed potatoes, TPS is generally free from viruses, easy to transport, and can be stored for several years without losing its germination. 
  • Despite the reduction in potato cultivation area, potato production is expected to increase during the forecasted period, driven by the high demand from the people in Algeria and other countries such as Scotland and the Netherlands. For instance, annual per capita potato consumption in Algeria increased to 66 kg in 2021, boosting the vegetable market during the forecast period. The higher consumption rate is due to potatoes' nutritional value and versatility in Algerian cuisine.
  • The demand for potatoes is expected to remain high during the forecasted period due to the availability of advanced seeds that provide higher profitability from less area harvested. This is expected to make potato cultivation more attractive to farmers, thus boosting production. Overall, the market for potatoes in Algeria is expected to grow, driven by higher consumption and increased production efficiency.

High Regional Trade of Dates is Driving the Market

  • Algeria has established itself as a major player in the global fruit market, with the production of watermelons, oranges, and dates being the primary driver of the country's agricultural output. Although watermelons and oranges have dominated the industry for the last few years, dates have emerged as significant commercial products in recent years. In fact, Algeria is the seventh-largest producer of dates in the world and is now exporting the product to other countries for consumption.
  • According to the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), in 2021, dates accounted for 1.2 million metric tons of Algeria's total fruit production, which increased from 1.1 million metric tons in 2019. The country's date export value has also been steadily increasing, reaching USD 141.9 thousand in 2021, up from USD 110.7 thousand in 2018, according to ITC Trademap.
  • France, Russia, and Spain are the major destinations for Algerian date exports. In 2021, France and Russia held a share of 50.6% of the total value of dates exported from Algeria. This indicates the high export potential of the Algerian date segment and suggests that demand for dates is likely to rise in the coming years. Therefore, the growth of the dates segment in Algeria has been impressive in recent years, with a steady increase in production and exports. With its high export potential and a significant share of the country's total fruit production, demand for dates is expected to continue to rise in the forecasted period, contributing further to Algeria's position as a major player in the global fruit market.
