Taiwan third largest exporter of stonefruit to US in 2013
In 2013, Taiwan imported a total of 21,553 metric tons (MT) of peaches/nectarines, valued at approximately US$48 million. Out of that total, the United States continued to dominate the Taiwan peach/nectarine import market, accounting for 76% of Taiwan's total fresh peach/nectarine imports. Taiwan’s imports of U.S. peaches/nectarines increased 16% by volume, while total imports also increased 16% during the 2013 season. Currently, the United States supplies 33% of Taiwan's total consumption. The principal competition for U.S. peaches/nectarines is from local production with an estimated 27,156 tons harvested in 2013.
Taiwan does not produce cherries, so 100% of local demand must be met by imports. Taiwan’s imports of U.S. cherries decreased by 55% in 2013; although the United States remained the fruit’s largest in 2013, with 4,401 MT or nearly US$34 million. However, the entry of major southern hemisphere suppliers (e.g., Australia, Chile, and New Zealand) has shifted some market share away from U.S. suppliers in recent years.
In 2013, Taiwan peach/nectarine production totalled 27,156 MT, a nearly 7% decrease below the 2012 output, due in part to excessive rain in April and the powerful Typhoon Soulik, which hit central Taiwan in July. The majority of peaches/nectarines are grown in the northern and central part of Taiwan. In 2013, the area planted declined to 2,314 hectares, a 59 hectare decrease from the previous year.
Last year, Taiwan imported a total of 21,553 MT, or US$48 million, worth of peaches and nectarines, which represents a 16% increase in volume and 18% in value compared to the previous year. The United States had the largest market share (76%), followed by Chile (22%), Australia (1.20%), Japan (1.08%), and New Zealand (0.03%).
As for cherries, Taiwan’s total imports dropped significantly, by nearly 45% in volume and 24% in value, reaching a total of 8,284 MT or US$67 million. The United States remained the leading supplier with 53% of the market, followed by Chile (23%), Canada (10%), Australia (8%), and New Zealand (6%).
