COVID-19 Impact: Pandemic had a negative impact on global avocados market
Amid an extraordinarily rapid decline in global economic activity and international transport, world supply and demand for avocado have experienced COVID-19-related disruptions and contractions through several channels of transmission. On the supply side, the adverse effects of the physical distancing measures have tended to be more immediate for the relatively labor-intensive production and trade of avocado. Given their high perishability, avocados require timely and well-coordinated harvesting and post-harvest handling, as well as uninterrupted cold chains. Delays in supply chains are particularly troublesome for avocados due to the occurrence of shrinkage in transport during the lockdown, which not only affected product quality but also reduced the weight and value of shipments received by importing countries.
Seasonally lower supplies in Mexico, the world's leading avocado exporter, which reported a 1% drop in exports over this time, had a moderating impact on global shipment growth. The imports of avocados from the United States of America, the major global importer, decreased by approximately 3.8 percent to 540,000 tons in 2020 compared to the period January to June 2019. The COVID crisis has had a significant impact on imports to China. In 2020, according to official data from China Customs, avocado imports in the first nine months were over 18K tons, down 23.8% from 2019.
