Spike in Consumption Rate to be Witnessed by Developing Economies in MEA & APEJ

North America has been the top producer as well as consumer of tree nut, followed by MEA and APEJ. While North America is presumed to remain one of the key markets for macadamia, MEA is believed to remain a dominant regional market – registering the highest consumption volume as well as value throughout the projection period. This growth is highly attributed to incredible opportunities for macadamia nut procedures in South African region. The global macadamia market is now a buyer negotiated space and with growing demand for size and quality, South Africa is believed to be a key market, eventually pushing the prospects for MEA. The demand and consumption of macadamia nuts in China is growing at a rapid pace, which is strongly influencing the market performance in Asia Pacific.
