Export value growing strongly

Mango exports are growing significantly. Over the past three seasons, volumes have increased 32%. While volumes exported are increasing, the value of exports is increasing at a higher rate. Over the same time period, the value of exports has increased by over 50%, from $20 million in the 2013/14 season to over $30 million in 2015/16.

The four markets which take 80% of Australian mangoes are Hong Kong, Singapore, New Zealand and the United Arab Emirates. But the markets with the greatest potential are the markets with the toughest phytosanitary protocols, such as China and USA.

We have seen a decline in some markets, such as Vietnam, which halted Australian horticultural exports several years ago, but is slowly moving to allow products re-entry.

The figures in the table below highlight the growth in value of exports and trends in targeted export markets.
