Market Overview

The global walnut market is projected to register a CAGR of 4.4% during the forecast period (2021-2026). The outbreak of coronavirus has affected walnut production and caused disruptions in the export and import markets, distribution, packing, and supply chain logistics. The value addition activities were affected negatively as disrupted distribution channel tends to lower the end-products of walnuts in the market. The extended lockdown has hit consumption as well as demand in the Asia Pacific region which is the largest walnut consumer. With the growing inclination of the consumers towards maintaining a healthy lifestyle, the high amount of nutritional content, and health benefits associated with walnuts make it one of the most important species of tree nuts and are consumed worldwide. Moreover, rising per capita consumption of walnuts coupled with rising demand for convenience food coupled with innovation in packaging, and expanding population willing to pay a premium for healthy fruits are some other factors propelling the market growth. As per FAOSTAT, the production of in-shell walnuts in China is 2.52 million metric tons in 2019. The production is estimated to lower by 15%, due to the effects of the previous year’s damage caused by frost. Additionally, adequate stocks in the country and high international walnut prices affected the demand for walnuts in China during 2018-2019, which keep the imports lower. It is estimated that close to 50% of the walnuts produced worldwide moves into retail consumption while usage in the food processing industry as an ingredient in the manufacture of nut butter, bakery products, confectionery and other similar products constitutes 42%.
