Highest Growing Market


According to Stratistics MRC, the Global Nut Products Market is accounted for $6.82 billion in 2022 and is expected to reach $10.70 billion by 2028 growing at a CAGR of 7.8% during the forecast period. A nut is a type of fruit that has a nutritious seed and an indigestible hard shell. They give the growing plant nutrients and energy. Nuts are often lauded for their savoury flavour and usefulness. There is a huge diversity of nuts. Raw mixed nuts often contain a variety of almonds, cashews, pistachios, and other nuts. They are highly nutritious and readily available at almost any grocery or gas station. These are a nutrient-rich diet that include most of the vitamins and minerals the body need. The bracts of the flower's involucres, or whorl, may contain nuts. The majority of nuts have inferior ovaries in their pistils and are indehiscent. Some plant families in the Fagales order are capable of producing nuts.

According to the International Nut & Dried Fruits Statistical Yearbook 2019/2020, global production of tree nuts kept growing at a steady pace over the last decade, reaching around 4.6 million metric tons in season 2019/2020. According to a survey conducted by the Almond Board of California, it found that 70% of consumers prefer to eat chocolate with nuts compared to plain chocolate, in large part because the nuts make the confection ore nutritious. 85% of consumers strongly or somewhat agreed that nuts make chocolate more nutritious.

Market Dynamics:


Rising health awareness

The global market is expected to be driven by rising interest in healthy lifestyles and nutrition knowledge above and beyond routine dietary practises. High demand for nut goods is a result of shifting customer expectations for quick-fix items with wellness and health claims. There has been a change in consumer behaviour due to rising health concerns and awareness. Additionally, people are modifying their nutritional preferences to encourage greater wellbeing. The omega-3 fatty acids found in almonds, walnuts, macadamia nuts, hazelnuts, and pecans are important for maintaining healthy joints and bones as well as cognitive function.


Availability and fluctuating costs for nuts as raw material

The agri-commodities that serve as the raw ingredients for nut products have significant levels of availability and price uncertainty. Given their inconsistent yields, rare and exotic nuts are more difficult to find. When using nuts as a raw material, ingredient producers must have a thoroughly thought-out inventory management system, which is typically not the case, especially for small and medium-sized firms. As a result, making nuts into items with added value like butter, pastes, and fillings is expensive. Manufacturers of processed foods and beverages eventually pass this high cost on to final customers. It is one of the main things preventing the market from expanding.


Growing application spectrum for nuts and derivatives

Due to the rapid expansion and exciting possibilities of plant-based dairy and meat alternatives, manufacturers of nuts have a wide range of options. To gain a competitive edge in the foreseeable future, top businesses like Olam International and Barry Callebaut have already stepped up their efforts to cater to these desirable end-use paths. Butter, paste, fillings, and flour made from nuts are being utilised increasingly frequently in a range of applications, with baking and confectionery being the most popular. Nut paste and flour are also used to make savoury plant-based foods. Among the most often utilised raw materials for semi-finished derivatives are almonds, hazelnuts, and walnuts. Additionally, an increase in strategic alliances and the emergence of new markets will act as market drivers and increase favourable prospects for the industry's growth rate.


Supply chain management intricacies and quality of nut products

The quality and safety concerns that arise as the products pass through various points in the supply chain are one of the major obstacles to the market expansion for nut products. Defects in the handling, distribution, transportation, and interim storage of nuts can have a significant impact on the quality of the finished products. The steps in the supply chain for nuts are sourcing, preparation, packaging, and storage. Nuts are susceptible to contamination all the way through the supply chain.

Covid-19 Impact

The COVID-19 downtime period caused the price of nuts to fluctuate widely in the market. On the other hand, the closure of restaurants and other dining establishments had a significant impact on the food and beverage business. Early in the pandemic, as governments all over the world imposed strict restrictions on the movement of goods and people on a predetermined timeline, the erratic demand for goods like snacks, dairy, bakery, and confectionary-based products had a detrimental effect on the operations of concerned supply chain processes. The food and beverage business was heavily influenced by COVID-19 in almost every region.

The hazelnuts segment is expected to be the largest during the forecast period

The hazelnuts segment is estimated to have a lucrative growth, they are readily available to customers through retail channels, these calorie-dense foods are also simple to consume. The primary component utilised in the confectionery sector to create meals, spreads, pastes, and chocolates is hazelnuts. These premium-grade nuts are offered in both unpeeled and processed forms and are priced competitively. Hazelnut trees are also a perfect crop because they don't need pesticides and can grow well in poor soil, drought, and other difficult growing situations. They prevent soil erosion, segregate more carbon than annual crops, and clean groundwater of contaminants. In addition, the hazelnut has various medical uses, including promoting healthy bowel motions, preventing cell damage, lowering cholesterol, and being a common ingredient in ayurvedic medicines. These elements are expected to increase the segments growth during the projected period.

The organic segment is expected to have the highest CAGR during the forecast period

The organic segment is anticipated to witness the fastest CAGR growth during the forecast period, due to organic nuts are distinct from regular nuts in that they don't include chemicals. Cookies, brownies, muffins, and biscuits are made using organic nuts. Additionally, it is applied as a topping to give baked goods like cakes and pancakes a more upscale appearance. Although it costs more than regular nuts, it provides the finest and purest quality of nutrients.

Region with highest share:

Asia Pacific is projected to hold the largest market share during the forecast period owing to the region's demand for nuts including almonds, peanuts, cashews, and walnuts will be driven by the large consumer bases in China, India, and Japan. The market will develop in the next years due to customers' growing concern about their health. Additionally, due to an increase in population and increased disposable income, the region is anticipated to develop at the most rapid rate in the regional sector of the market during the projection period.

Region with highest CAGR:

Europe is projected to have the highest CAGR over the forecast period, owing to Growing consumer knowledge of the region's nut consumption's health advantages is fueling market expansion. The consumer lives of consumers are rapidly changing to emphasize health and well-being, which will drive industry growth in the upcoming years. As a result of the availability of nutrient-dense low-carb nut goods, market expansion is anticipated to pick up in Germany and the UK due to rising consumption of almond, walnut, and cashew-based foods.
