The dried figs market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 5.42%, reaching a market size of US$787.405 million by 2027, from US$544.246 million in 2020.

Ficus Carica, often known as the common fig, is an Asian flowering plant. Due to growing disposable income and improved availability throughout the world, demand for dried figs is predicted to surge in the future years. Figs are one of the sweetest fruits, with a chewy texture that sets them apart. Antioxidants, phytochemicals, enzymes, and vitamins are abundant in figs. These are available in a range of sizes and can be bought fresh or dried. Furthermore, the fruit has no fat, which aids in the prevention of heart disease, as well as various forms of cancer and stroke. In the future years, revenue growth in the worldwide dried figs market is predicted to be driven by population growth and increased disposable income.

Additionally, technical advances in the manufacture of high-quality dried fig products are projected to boost the dried figs market's rise in the coming years. Furthermore, rising demand for healthy food items, as well as increased usage of dried figs in the food sector, including desserts, snacks and bars, bakery goods, confectioneries, cereals, and dairy products, are likely to boost the dried figs market. Rising urbanization, increased consumer health consciousness, and a rise in the number of groceries, superstores, and retail outlets are some of the major factors driving the market's expansion throughout the projection period. Therefore, all these factors will positively contribute to the market’s development and expansion.

Over the projected period, the rising medical benefits of dried figs will boost the market sales

Ficus carica fruit is utilised as a medicinal component in formulations, most notably in the Unani system of medicine, but its therapeutic applications have also been described in folk and traditional European herbal medicines, as well as Iranian traditional medicine. Due to the rising demand from consumers for health benefits, the market for dried figs is anticipated to increase during the projected period. Moreover, Caricae Fructus USP's medicinal applications and qualities are reported in the corresponding first edition of the Dispensatory of the United States of America. Consuming dried figs raises blood haemoglobin levels by boosting iron balance in the bloodstream. Iron is a vital element that helps haemoglobin flow throughout the human body. As a result, dried figs may aid in the treatment of iron-deficient anaemia. Figs, whether fresh or dried, contain potent antioxidants that help your body fight disease by neutralising free radicals. They also provide enough levels of dietary fibre, which helps to regulate the digestive tract and may aid in weight management. The American Diabetes Association suggests figs as a high-fibre treatment aids those with diabetes functional management. Fig leaves lessen the quantity of insulin required by diabetes people who must undergo insulin injections on a regular basis. Therefore, the prevalence of such health concerns will simultaneously surge the market demand.

The Middle East region is anticipated to rise

According to the American Botanical Council, Turkey is by far the world's top producer and exporter of figs, having shipped almost 85,000 metric tonnes in 2019. In 2019, the United States bought 15,049 metric tonnes of figs and fig products, primarily from Turkey. In southern Kandahar and the adjoining Helmand and Zabul provinces, figs are commonly cultivated. The fruit is widely utilised in homoeopathic stores throughout the war-torn country and is primarily used as medicine in traditional medical treatment among Afghans. According to the Ministry of Economy, 7.155 tonnes of figs were exported in 2021. According to the same source, Afghanistan exported figs worth $35 million USD in the previous year. Mehmet Ali I?k, President of the Aegean Dried Fruits and Products Exporters' Association, describes dried figs as a prestige product and points out that Turkey alone accounts for 60% of global dried fig exports.
