Decrease in Algerian citrus exports in 2017

Due to a lack of organisation within the sector and constrictive norms from the global market, Algerian citrus exports decreased in 2017. They only reached $20,304 in 2017 compared to $42,921 in 2016. The main clients were in the Gulf. Orange exports reached $10,589 in 2017, representing 52% of total Algerian citrus exports. Mandarin exports reached $8,351 and lemons $1,279. Qatar is the main client, representing $8,943 (44% of exports), followed by the UAE with $6,133 (30% of exports) and Oman with $5,104 (25% of exports). Global citrus exports reached 16.63 million tons in 2016, of which Spain represents 25.8% ($3.5 billion).
