Market Dynamics

Growth Drivers

Increasing Consumer Preference for Clean Label Products to Drive Dried Fruit Sales

Increased consumer awareness regarding the adverse effects of added colors and flavors has led to a shift toward healthier dietary choices. The concept of "clean labels" or easily understandable product information has gained popularity, allowing consumers to make informed choices and feel more in control of their well-being. This heightened demand for clean label products stems from consumers seeking foods free of artificial additives and preservatives. Customers are now examining ingredient lists on packaging more attentively, showing a growing preference for clean-label items. This shift in consumer behavior, which was previously uncommon, has resulted in a surge in the demand for preserved fruits that undergo little to no processing.

Distribution Channel Expansion Will Provide Market Growth Opportunities for Dried Fruit Product Manufacturers

Dried fruit products market displays considerable fragmentation, requiring manufacturers to explore efficient ways to engage with a diverse consumer audience. In response, dried fruit producers are entering into new sales channels, thereby enhancing the availability of dried fruit products from various brands. The industry's declared fragmentation, combined with the current lack of brand recognition and limited consumer loyalty, is emerging as a key driver for the increasing retail sales of dried fruits to augment nutritional content in meals. Internet-based sales are thriving due to easy product accessibility, convenient purchasing processes, and a broader range of choices from various brands. This, in turn, is expected to generate more sales opportunities for manufacturers targeting health-conscious consumers.


High Cost of Dehydrated Fruits Will Somewhat Restrain Market Growth

Perishable nature of fruits requires a heavy reliance on imports for dried fruits, resulting in added costs such as import duties, shipping costs, customs fees, and logistical expenses, thereby driving up prices. Additionally, the naturally denser nature of dried fruits contributes to increased production costs. The freeze-drying process, while effective, further adds to the final product's price. Collectively, these factors position dried fruits on the higher end of the pricing scale, which could potentially affect their sales. The use of dried fruits may be discouraged due to worries about possible adulteration during processing and the nutritional content being lost in comparison to fresh fruits.

Impact of Covid-19 on Dried Fruit Market

The outbreak of the coronavirus had a substantial impact on the fruits and vegetables market. In response to the closure of bars, restaurants, and schools, fruit producers and distributors had to make a complete shift from foodservice to the retail channel. While this transition posed challenges related to labor and logistics, the fresh supply chain remained strong. Consumers altered their purchasing patterns, favoring online retail as immigrant labor markets faced limitations, and a preference for longer-lasting fruits increased. The supply chain experienced issues ranging from worker safety to logistical constraints, seasonal labor shortages, and disruptions. However, the majority of processing plants managed to stay operational.

Conversely, the preserved fruits and vegetables sector, including dried fruits, played a vital role in meeting the rising consumer demand for safe, healthy, and long-lasting products. Nevertheless, strict adherence to COVID-19 hygiene measures resulted in increased production costs. These developments demonstrate the fruit industry's flexibility and resilience in the face of unprecedented challenges.
