RECENT EVOLUTION OF THE WORLD MANGO MARKET

E. Gallo
Mango is a local market, most of the production in consumed within their own countries. Imports in North America and Europe have grown about 10% yearly from 2000 to 2010. The international mango trade adds up to one billion US$. Interesting happenings in the recent year are the entrance of Indian mangoes to the USA, even if still small it is a very important signal. Other important events were the creation of the US Mango Promotion Board and the retreat of South Africa form the European Market leaving a large window for Peruvian producers, both in the USA markets by reducing their supply in the USA and increasing it in the European market, catching the demand left by South Africa, as we show graphically based on statistics. The USA market still shows a high seasonality and countercyclical movements of supply and prices. Mexico is the biggest supplier in the USA Market. In 2010 India was the biggest exporter in dollar terms. By 2011 Mexico was the biggest exporter in dollar terms, closely followed by India. Organic mangoes have an attractive price reward.
