Europe Orange Market

Europe is the second major market for oranges due to the increasing demand for orange juice in the region. Spain is the largest producer of orange fruit in the region, followed by Italy and Greece.

In Europe, orange production is concentrated in the Mediterranean region. Spain and Italy account for 80% of Europe’s orange production, with the remaining 20% being distributed among the other EU-28 countries Portugal, Greece, and Cyprus. The total area under orange cultivation in Europe is about 267,255 hectares. The region holds 28.9% of the share in the global orange export market, which is valued at USD 1.3 billion.

In 2015, EU-28 orange production was valued at 6.1 million metric tons, with an increment of 2.5% compared to the previous year. Tangerine production has decreased in recent years, reaching 2.9 million metric tons due to the decrease in volume from the expected producing regions in Spain and Italy. The production of the orange in Europe is projected to show a little change due to the increase in production in Italy and Greece despite the decline in production in Spain. Europe’s total import of orange was about 800 million tons in 2015-16, with the leading suppliers being South Africa and Egypt, followed by Morocco, Uruguay, and Argentina. The total export of orange amounted to 300 million tons. In Europe, the domestic consumption of fresh orange amounts to 5,254 million tons, while the oranges used for processing amounted to 1,353 million tons.
