The global almond market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.44% over the forecast period to reach a total market size of US$11.814 billion by 2027, increasing from US$8.156 billion in 2020. Almonds are consumed worldwide due to their health benefits and are also utilized in the form of food inclusions. Hence, the growing food inclusion market will have a positive impact on the growth of the global almond market during the forecast period. Almonds can be preserved for a longer duration in comparison to fresh fruits, and they also serve as handy snacks, especially for long journeys, and there is no need for refrigeration either, which is why they are widely accepted around the globe.
California is one of the world’s largest producers of almonds.
California's almond crop is growing significantly, and it has the largest tree nut crop globally. Almond is considered an imported crop in the region in terms of both export and domestic purposes, and with the growing adoption of almonds as a dietary solution option, its demand is further increasing. Furthermore, almond farmers are in need of more pollination than any other crop. Therefore, they are also the major source of demand for beekeepers in the country. Since they are required all-year-round, unavailability of beekeeping or delay in beekeeper delivery increases the overall cost of the production and further negatively impacts the production of almonds in the country.
The European region holds a substantial share of the market
Increasing demand for vegan and organic food in the region is expected to drive the market for almonds during the forecast period. In addition, the major economies expanding the food and beverage industry coupled with the growing investments by big market players in the region to increase their market share, are anticipated to propel the market growth opportunities. In addition to this, changing consumer preferences and increasing adoption of meat alternatives and substitute products due to the rising vegan population are anticipated to further propel this growth in the coming years. For instance, according to multiple surveys, the vegan population in the United Kingdom has increased substantially over the past few years, with strong growth still anticipated during the forecast period. Major market players are focusing on almond health positioning and consumer marketing efforts, as well as developing a model and strategy for developing markets such as India and China. Furthermore, the expansion of the e-commerce industry in the United Kingdom is attracting new market players to enter the market with advanced and innovative products, thus increasing competition and further propelling the market growth opportunities for manufacturers and vendors. In fact, according to the United Nations Industrial Development Organization, the e-commerce market contributed to more than 7.12% of the United Kingdom's GDP in 2018. Also, the UK is the third-largest B2C market in the world, with an estimated $174.2 million in online sales of goods and services in 2016.
The rising adoption of almond milk is creating opportunities for new players to enter the market.
The prevalence of lactose intolerance is caused by the inability of the lactase enzyme produced by the cells present in the lining of the small intestine to break down or digest lactose (milk sugar). Hence, consuming almond milk provides an alternative for individuals suffering from lactose intolerance, which is considered lactose-free without compromising the nutritional benefits. Lactose-intolerance present in infants is due to congenital lactase deficiency, also known as congenital anastasia, a disorder, caused by mutations in the LCT gene. Newborns are unable to break down lactose present in breast milk or the milk formula. This type of disorder is a rare disorder and the incidence at present is unknown. However, as per the National Institutes of Health (NIH) estimates, lactose intolerance in infants is reported to be around 1 in 60,000 in Finland. Adults, not able to digest lactose comprise over 60% of the human population. The disease at the time of adulthood is prevalent among individuals of East Asian descent, affecting over 70% of the population. Also, lactose intolerance is found prevalent among the population of West African descent, Arab, Jewish, Greek, and Italian descent, hence, providing an opportunity for the market to grow in the forecast period.
Growing demand in developing and underdeveloped economies:
The rise in standards of living has led to an increase in consumer spending in some developing economies, such as India and China. Moreover, an increase in the working population ratio and rapid industrialization and urbanization have further increased the demand for well-preserved foods. This has thus created a huge opportunity for almonds.
Furthermore, similar countries have also seen an increase in the number of supermarkets and retail stores and an increase in the trend of buying well-preserved foods. According to the USDA Foreign Agricultural Service's Food and Grocery Product Opportunities Stemming from Internal Sector Shift, modern formats such as supermarkets and hypermarkets are growing at a 15% annual rate in India. In addition to this, the widening of the retail chain and growing globalization has resulted in an increase in the demand for food products that have longer shelf lives and can be preserved without the requirement of any special storage, which would thus result in an increase in the demand for almonds in these kinds of economies.
The availability of substitutes is anticipated to restrain the growth of the almond market in the coming years.
There are multiple substitutes available that offer similar functionality to almonds and will pose a restraint to the demand for almonds. Alternatives in the form of raisins, apricots, and cashews, among others, are used and are gaining popularity in the coming years.
The growing concerns regarding the impact of the current COVID-19 pandemic on global food production and distribution, including fresh and dried fruits and vegetables, threaten food security and are projected to impede the almond market growth. During the COVID-19 pandemic, the United Nations evaluated the relationship between novel coronavirus and global food security. According to the United Nations Food Security Committee, World Food Security is defined as “all people, at all times, having physical, social, and economic access to sufficient, safe, and nutritious food that meets their food preferences and dietary needs for an active and healthy life”. Also, on April 21st, 2020, it is estimated by the United Nations that due to the novel coronavirus pandemic; numerous individuals are suffering from food insecurity issues in various parts of the globe. The increase in buying of immunity boosters and healthy products like almonds resulted in a disruption in the equilibrium prices as market demand exceeds supply, which further resulted in the increase in prices of almonds.
The overall almond industry is highly competitive. It offers various opportunities for new entrants owing to a continuous shift in consumer preferences towards a healthy lifestyle. Also, the increasing application in various industries is widening the growth opportunities for almond producers in various parts of the world. Besides, in this market, factors such as territorial market size, competition intensity, capacity, demand development through marketing, and local infrastructure are projected to influence the whole value chain of the product. In addition, companies are directly involved in retail and are investing in e-commerce channels to gain benefits from the growing market.
