Steady growth in fruit imports in China

China’s imported fruit market witnessed steady growth, both in terms of total import volume as well as import value over the past several years. 2014 was exceptional in this regard, as the total volume of imported fruit to mainland China increased by 27% over 2013, with the total value of imports also rising 21%. 

This trend continued into 2015, with the total volume of fruit imports to mainland China growing to 3.8 million tons and valued at $5 billion (year-on-year increases of 10.5% and 14%, respectively). Despite a large increase in overall value in 2014 (22.7%), fresh fruit imports to Hong Kong experienced very little growth in 2015, as foreign exporters turn from export to Hong Kong to direct export into mainland China as their primary method of distribution—an indicator of the increased difficulty of exporting via grey channels.
