Simultaneously, there is greater awareness regarding the consumption of various fruits and vegetables, especially avocados, berries, and grapes that help in lowering cholesterol and triglyceride levels, and in losing weight. As a result, its health benefits help drive the demand for avocados in the global market.

“Fresh Fruit, Including Hass Avocados, Are Popular Among Consumers”

Consumers are consuming more frequent, smaller meals throughout the day, while searching for healthier options. The better-for-you snacks are estimated to rise at a significant rate. This category includes fruits, nutrition bars, and Greek yogurt, and is projected to grow almost 5% by 2018. According to the American Wholesale Marketers Association (AWMA), fresh snacks i.e. fruits including avocados—are popular among consumers.

“Lack of Vertical Integration for Manufacturers in the Market”

A large proportion of the avocado growing and processing companies in the market lack an approach of expansion of their business operations into different steps of the production and supply chain, which leads to an inflation of avocado and associated product prices, as manufacturers become bound to spend additional costs on transportation and processing, leading to an increased turnaround time of the processed avocados and products. This is expected to hamper the growth of the avocado market over the forecast period, owing to the inadequacy of potential consumers willing to bear the high costs of prolonged procedures and operations.
