Orange is a fruit belonging to the citrus family and is widely produced in Latin America, mainly in Brazil. The subtropical areas of South America and the Caribbean are suitable for orange production.
South America Orange Market Dynamics
Both Brazil and Argentina are the main exporters of orange globally. Brazil is the largest producer and exporter of fresh orange and processed orange. Argentina dominates the global export market for lime/lemon orange, after Spain. Approximately 20% of the fresh production is exported from this region. Brazil’s production of orange has gone up to 3% from the previous year to 16.7 million tons due to its high yield. Costa Rica has a significant market in orange production after Brazil and Argentina in the region. The various varieties of oranges grown in the region are Washington Navel, Trovita, and Valencia.
Orange is produced as fresh orange for direct consumption and as processed orange in the form of orange juice, fruit concentrate, and powder. Fruit processing in Brazil is up by 2% to 11.2 million tons, while consumption has increased by 4% due to the high fruit supply in the country. Brazil is the world’s largest exporter of orange juice. The country exported a total of 1.2 million metric tons of orange juice in 2012. However, the consumption of fresh orange in the country has decreased by 11% from the previous year to 5.3 million tons.
The market for processed orange consumption is likely to increase in South America due to the ease in transport and longer shelf life. Nowadays, the new trend of purchasing processed orange juice from the market is driving the orange juice demand in the region.
