Key Market Trends

Decline in the Rice Production

Rice production in Spain has been continuously decreasing since 2011 at an alarming rate of 0.5 million metric ton annually. Pesticide restrictions, import competition, and a highly competitive domestic market dominated by supermarket brands are the main reasons for its reduction. Rice cultivation is input-intensive as it needs high initial investments for land preparation and a significant amount of working capital to cover input costs. Low farm prices and competition from third countries force Spanish rice farmers to switch to more profitable crops. The decline in domestic rice production is creating a huge market for rice imports.

Pakistan - Major Supplier of Rice to Spain

Even though Spain is the second-largest producer of rice in Europe, domestic production alone cannot meet the demand. Therefore the country depends on imports to meet its demand. Thailand, Pakistan, Italy, and Guyana are the leading suppliers of rice to Spain with 17.9%, 14.4%, 9.7%, and 8.1% of total import share. Spain is not only an active importer of rice but also an exporter within Europe. It exports rice to European countries, such as Belgium, the United Kingdom, and France.
