DUBLIN–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The “Global Cashew Kernel Market – Segmented by Geography- Growth, Trends, and Forecast (2018 – 2023)” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com‘s offering.
Cashew nut kernels have become increasingly popular all over the world in the recent years, eaten either as an evening snack or in breakfast meals. A recent study published in the British Journal of Nutrition revealed that the risk of coronary heart disease may be up to 37% lower in people who consume nuts more than four times a week compared to people who never or seldom consume nuts.
The majority of cashew is produced in Western Africa, and the region accounts for around 45% share in the global output. Western Africa is followed by India, accounting for 21% of the global output in 2016. US was the largest importer of cashew kernel in the global market, with imports valued at USD 1,580,702 thousand in 2017.
Increasing demand for healthy snacks, growing demand from European countries and the rising number of primary processing units in Africa are the key factors driving the market growth. However, unfavorable climate changes pose a threat to cashew cultivation. The flowering, fruiting, pest incidence, yield and quality of cashew kernels and nut are highly vulnerable to climate change.
