Analyst Opinion

The Fruit market in United Kingdom has been experiencing significant growth in recent years.

Customer preferences:
Consumers in the United Kingdom have increasingly been opting for healthier food options, and this has led to a surge in demand for fruits. Fruits are seen as a convenient and nutritious snack, and this has made them a popular choice for people of all ages. Additionally, there has been a growing interest in exotic fruits, which has led to an increase in imports of fruits from other countries.

Trends in the market:
One of the major trends in the Fruit market in United Kingdom is the rise in demand for organic fruits. Consumers are becoming more aware of the harmful effects of pesticides and chemicals on their health and the environment, and this has led to an increase in demand for organic fruits. Another trend is the growing popularity of fruit-based products such as smoothies, juices, and dried fruits. These products are seen as a convenient way to consume fruits and are popular among busy consumers.

Local special circumstances:
The United Kingdom has a temperate climate, which means that certain fruits such as apples, pears, and berries are grown locally. This has led to a thriving local fruit industry, and consumers are increasingly opting for locally grown fruits. Additionally, the United Kingdom has a large population of immigrants, and this has led to a demand for exotic fruits that are not traditionally grown in the country.

Underlying macroeconomic factors:
The growth of the Fruit market in United Kingdom can be attributed to several underlying macroeconomic factors. The United Kingdom has a strong economy, which has led to an increase in disposable income among consumers. This has enabled consumers to spend more on healthy food options such as fruits. Additionally, the United Kingdom has a well-developed infrastructure that allows for the efficient distribution of fruits across the country. Finally, the United Kingdom is a member of the European Union, which has made it easier for the country to import fruits from other EU countries.


Data coverage:

The data encompasses B2B. Figures are based on the value of gross production in the agriculture market, which values of production are calculated by multiplying gross production by output prices at the farm gate.

Modeling approach:

Market sizes are determined through a bottom-up approach, building on specific predefined factors for each market. As a basis for evaluating markets, we use resources from the Statista platform as well as annual financial reports of the market-leading companies and industry associations, third-party studies and reports, national statistical offices, international institutions, and the experience of our analysts. In addition, we use relevant key market indicators and data from country-specific associations, such as GDP, consumer spending, and consumer price index.


In our forecasts, we apply diverse forecasting techniques. The selection of forecasting techniques is based on the behavior of the relevant market. For example, the S-curve function and exponential trend smoothing are well suited for forecasting agriculture products due to the non-linear growth of this market, especially because of the direct impact of climate change on the market.

Additional notes:

The data is modeled using current exchange rates. The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and the Russia-Ukraine war are considered at a country-specific level. The market is updated twice a year.
