US demand for avocados is reaching record levels, with US avocado imports set to reach a staggering $3.27 billion in value by 2022. This growing admiration for this nutrient-dense fruit has made the country the second largest market for avocados. Peruvian avocado export industry.

Despite being only the fourth largest avocado producer in Latin America, Peru has been positioning itself as a reliable exporter of avocados to the US, although quite far from the volumes shipped by Mexico.

According to data from the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), in 2022, 269.65 million pounds of avocados were shipped from Peru to the US, a volume 69% higher than the 186.35 million pounds shipped in 2021. And according to the Peruvian Association of Hass Avocado Producers, in 2023 Peru expects to further increase this volume by 13%.

This increase in avocado exports from Peru will allow the country to play a more critical role as a supplier of this product to the United States. This will be even more crucial in the coming years, as avocado consumption in the United States could increase by up to 70% and reach a value of $26.2 billion in 2028, compared to a market value of $15.4 billion in 2022. .

Peru hopes to have the ability to contribute more to this growing demand: the Latin American country currently has some 60,000 hectares of Hass avocado production. Many avocado trees are still maturing in this area, so avocado production volumes could increase significantly in the coming years.

This total avocado area represents significant increases in the avocado-producing region of the high Andean areas of Peru. For example, in a four-year period, Ayacucho increased its avocado acreage by 288% to 2,296 hectares in 2022. Meanwhile, Huancavelica’s avocado acreage increased by 429% in the same period to 1,793 hectares.

Drought could affect Peruvian avocado exports
Despite projected increases in Peruvian avocado production volumes and exports to the US, the Latin American country faces threats of drought in 2023. The Andean region is forecast to experience less rainfall this year, which could affect about 30% of avocado imports. This could mean having smaller avocado sizes this year.
