Dried Fruits Market Restraints
“High Pricing of Dehydrated Fruits to Hamper Market Growth to Some Extent”
The perishable nature of fruits makes dried fruits a highly import-dominant food product. This attracts import duties, freight charges, customs, and logistical charges, which increases prices. The density of dried fruits is another factor which adds on to the cost of the end product.
The freeze-dried process of the production of drying fruits is expensive and adds to the final price of the product. Thus, availability of cheaper options and dried fruits being on the higher side of the price scale are expected to hamper sales to some extent.
Cognizance about the food content among consumers has increased substantially in the past few decades. Consumers are avoiding processed food due to rising health-consciousness.
Increased number of customers are hesitant toward the consumption of packaged food and are preferring food products that are fresh and naturally available. Hence, the conscious minds of consumers regarding the vitamins and nutritional content in fresh food is drawing them toward freshly available fruits instead of dried fruits.
Moreover, adulteration during processing is one of the major concerns restraining hypersensitive consumers from consuming dried fruits. Dried fruits are also known to lose some of the nutritional content as compared to fresh fruits, which is expected to hamper overall sales of dried fruits during the forecasted period.

Impact of COVID-19 Crisis
Emergence of the new coronavirus had a considerable influence on the fruits and vegetable market. Producers and distributors of fruits were obliged to shift completely from the foodservice to the retail channel as a result of the closure of bars, restaurants, and schools.
Shippers mentioned that the change was difficult due to manpower and logistical issues, but the fresh supply chain remained robust. Consumers' buying patterns have shifted toward online retailing, as there are increased constraints on immigrant labor markets and a higher concentration of customers desiring fruits with longer shelf lives.
Availability and protection of workers, including industrial conditions, logistical constraints, seasonal workers, and disruptions were all issues experienced across the supply chain. However, most processing plants remained open despite the adversity.
The preserved fruits and vegetables sector, such as dried fruits, is considered as an essential to meeting the rising customer demand for safe, healthy, long-lasting products, but stringent adherence to COVID-19 hygiene norms and processes continued to result in increased production costs.
