India: Tree Nuts Annual

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)

India's tree nut imports continue to surge, with demand growing despite a tariff stranglehold. Consumption is growing as a result of the expanded perception of the health benefits of almonds and walnuts among middle-class consumers. FAS New Delhi forecasts in marketing year 2020/2021 Indian almond imports to reach 115,000 metric tons (MT). While walnut imports are forecast to reach 32,000 metric tons. Trade volumes can potentially be higher if it were not for Government of India imposed trade barriers (both tariff and non-tariff).
