Import report for 9 months 2016

Rouble rebounded and hit its highest in this year, slowing down the rates of decline of the main nuts and dried fruits import. Is this the evidence of an economic stabilization? Possibly! Some importers refrain from purchasing nuts and dried fruits due to their high price, others manage to support stable demand even under such circumstances.

 Peanuts The foremost and most powerful engine of the Russian nuts import showed a 16% increase. The main reason of such import volume growth is that peanuts serve to substitute more pricey nuts. Peanuts import from Brazil demonstrated the highest growth in the nine months of 2016 – 37% - due to their attractive prices. Argentina reduced its share in the Russian import volumes to 52% amid crop problems at the origin. Cheap peanuts from India, China, Uzbekistan will come in the market by the end of October and we will witness a battle for Russian peanuts market among the world leading producers.

Walnut High price and impossibility of purchasing of walnuts from Ukraine have affected walnuts import, prompting its falloff by 20% in nine months of 2016. Despite pretty good forecasts for main origins, prospects of walnut import growth are rather clouded. Chile remains the leading exporter to the Russian Federation with its 88% share in the Russian walnut import. [visualizer id="385"] More on walnuts

Raisins Raisins encourage overall growth of Russian import volumes, and 30% rise is a positive confirmation making us to think that breaking of 30,000 tons of dried fruits benchmark level is quite feasible. Good crop and attractive prices in Turkey in Afghanistan may reshape the exporters’ shares in the Russian market. Iran holds the first place in nine months with 34% share in the market, followed by Afghanistan with firm 23.4%. Current low prices for Turkish Sultanas and the meltdown in Russian-Turkish relations will definitely be echoed in shipments trend. 18% share of raisins import from India also deserves nominating as “The Breakthrough of the Year”. Indian raisins found its way to the market due to decent quality and low price in the beginning of the year. [visualizer id="393"] More on raisins
