Market Overview

The Morocco fruits and vegetable market is anticipated to witness a CAGR of 5.5% during the forecast period(2021-2026). Morocco had successfully controlled the outbreak initially in 2020 after declaring a national health emergency, closing its borders, and calling for mandatory confinement. Morocco’s trade balances including for fresh fruits and vegetables, were negatively impacted by the containment measures and reduced global demand resulting from the pandemic, as well as by a harsh drought and a drop in major exports. In the short term, since main trading partner of Morocco for fruits and vegetables, the European Union, is likely to face a recession, trade is unlikely to bounce back immediately. Also, as the cases continue to rise, the shutdowns are also expected to significantly impact the local supply chain of fruits and vegetables market leading to explosive price hike in the future. Hence, the fruits and vegetables market is assessed to observe a massive influence of the COVID-19 epidemic in the year 2021.

Over the long term, the growing demand for fresh fruits and vegetables owing to increase in consumer awareness towards healthier alternatives and rising economy, rising organic production in the country, increased focus on fresh produce exports, and rising fresh produce production from modern agriculture practices including green houses and vertical farming are some of the factors expected to drive the market growth over the study period. In Morocco, consumption of healthier food is on the rise. More number of people in the country are preferring the micronutrient-rich foods over the animal-based diet. This change in dietary habits may be attributed to the rising in health awareness on the country. Further, the rising incomes and growing economy is expected to boost the demand of fresh fruits and vegetables significantly in the coming years. However, some factors such as unfavorable and unpredictable weather conditions in the country and the crop loses due to pest and diseases​ is expected to restrain the market growth during the forecast period.
