The planting area of strawberries in China is increasing year by year. In 2011, the planting area was 78.1 thousand hectares, and it rose to 139.97 thousand hectares in 2021. It is expected that the area will continue to rise as the demand for strawberries in China increases in the future.
China's strawberry exports continue to increase
Chinese strawberries mainly met the domestic consumption demand. The import and export volume was tiny, and there was a trend of increasing imports and decreasing exports. However, in recent years, the export volume of Chinese strawberries has been increasing.
The main export destinations are Russia and Vietnam
The main sales markets of China's strawberries are the neighboring countries, and the strawberry trade exchanges with Germany, the United States, and other major countries have been continuously developed. In 2021, China’s strawberries were mainly exported to Russia and Vietnam, of which 1,411.21 tons are exported to Russia, 1,110.3 tons to Vietnam, and 19.7 tons to Thailand.
In 2021, due to the impact of the pandemic, the number of registered enterprises related to strawberry planting in China dropped by 22.02% compared with 2020.
International trading of strawberries is becoming more and more frequent
With the advancement of facilities and cultivation techniques, the yield of strawberries in the world is also increasing year by year. Although the growth rate of the global strawberry output per unit area is relatively low, the increasing trend is still relatively stable, and international strawberry trading is becoming more and more frequent.
Strawberry production becoming intelligent and mechanized
In recent years, with the development of artificial intelligence and other technologies, strawberry production will gradually become smart and mechanized.
Strawberry planting is moving toward green and organic
With the increase in the national per capita disposable income, people have certain requirements for the quality and health of food. In order to meet the large-scale production and adapt to the climate type of different regions, new varieties with better fruit shapes will be released.
The main competitiveness of strawberries will come from derivative products and industries
