India: Tree Nuts Annual

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   IN2019-0113

India recorded significant growth in almond, walnut, and pistachio imports in market year (MY) 2020/2021, increasing by 44, 20, and 34 percent, respectively, from MY 2019/2020. However, MY 2021/2022 almond and walnut imports are estimated to drop due to high domestic prices, increased domestic supply, reduced production in the United States, geopolitical tensions in regional suppliers (including Afghanistan), and various global shipping challenges. Conversely, India’s pistachio imports are estimated to rise 11 percent to 31,000 metric tons (MT). The domestic market for pistachios remains marginal, albeit with promising growth prospects and imports are estimated to reach 50,000 MT by MY 2024/2025.
