The trend pattern remained relatively stable, with somewhat noticeable fluctuations being recorded over the period under review. The most prominent rate of growth was recorded in 2008, when consumption increased by 5% year-on-year (y/y). Over the period under review, global orange consumption attained its peak figure volume in 2017 and is likely to see steady growth in the immediate term.
The global orange market revenue amounted to $55 billion (IndexBox estimates) in 2017, surging by 12% against the previous year (2016).

From 2007 to 2017, the most notable growth rate of orange consumption among the main consuming countries was attained by China (+10,6% per year), while the other global leaders experienced more modest paces of growth. In value terms, China ($18 billion) led the globe, alone. The second position in the ranking was occupied by Brazil ($8 billion) followed by the United States (US).
Driven by increasing demand for oranges from Asian countries, the market is expected to continue an upward consumption trend during the next eight years. The performance of the market is forecast to retain its current trend pattern, expanding with an anticipated CAGR of +0,9% for the eight-year period from 2017 to 2025, which is projected to bring the market volume to 81 million tons by the end of 2025.
Brazil continues to dominate world production

From 2007 to 2017, the most notable growth rate of orange production among the main producing countries was attained by China (+10,3% per year), while the other global leaders experienced more modest paces of growth.
The general positive trend of orange output was largely conditioned by a slight expansion of the harvested area and a mild growth in yield figures.
In 2017, the global harvested area of oranges amounted to 4 million hectares, levelling off at the previous year (2016). In general, orange harvested area continues to indicate a relatively flat trend pattern.

In 2017, it reached 19 ton per hectare, going up by 2% against the previous year (2016). – IndexBox
