Mexico: avocado exports value 2015-2019

In 2019, Mexican avocado exports amounted to nearly 2.8 billion U.S. dollars. While the value of exports has grown since 2015, 2017 to 2018 saw a slight decrease. In recent years, fresh avocado production in the country has exceeded two million metric tons.

The avocado boom

The vast majority of avocados exported from Mexico are imported in the United States. Marketed as a nutritional fruit associated with a healthy lifestyle, avocados have become a fast-growing trend in the United States, and consumption has soared in the past decade. Fresh avocado production in Mexico has widely expanded to keep up with rising demand, particularly in the western state of Michoacán.

Agricultural work in Mexico

While the harvested area of avocado in Mexico has more than doubled in the past twenty years, the share of employment in the country’s agricultural sector has nevertheless decreased and holds the lowest distribution of the workforce of any major sector. Over half of all workers in Mexico are employed in services, and nearly a quarter in industry.
