South Korea: 2017 Apple Report- Revised

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)

This first Korean apple report highlights apple market dynamics in Korea. Although production area has been growing in recent years, harvest yields fluctuate due to weather patterns. Domestic consumption is highly correlated to production. In Marketing Year (MY) 2017/18, apple production and consumption are both expected to decrease slightly, with apple production expected to be around 560,000 metric tons (MT). Meanwhile, consumption is expected to decrease to 10.9 Kg per capita in MY 2017/18 from 11.2 Kg per capita in MY 2016/017. Korean international trade in apples is very small, with only one-percent of production exported each year. There are currently no approved countries for importing apples into Korea.
