Growing consumer awareness about the health benefits and nutritional value of fresh figs is driving the demand for these fruits. Figs are perceived as a nutritious and wholesome option that aligns with wellness trends and dietary preferences, such as plant-based diets and clean eating.

 

Fresh figs have gained popularity in international markets as well. The fresh figs market growth is led by factors like international cuisines, global trade, and increased availability of fresh produce in different regions, contributes to the overall demand for fresh figs.
 

Fresh figs have a limited growing season, typically from late summer to early fall. This seasonal availability poses a challenge in meeting year-round consumer demand and maintaining a consistent supply of fresh figs throughout the year. Fresh figs are highly perishable fruits and have a relatively short shelf life. They require careful handling, storage, and transportation to maintain their quality and freshness. Any mishandling or delay in the supply chain can result in spoilage and loss of product, affecting market availability. Factors such as seasonal supply variations, weather conditions, market demand, and competition can lead to price volatility. High prices may deter some consumers, while low prices may affect the profitability of growers and suppliers.
 

COVID-19 Impact

Restrictions on movement, transportation limitations, and border closures disrupted the flow of fresh figs from production regions to consumer markets. This caused delays in shipments, reduced availability, and increased transportation costs. The pandemic-induced disruptions in the fresh fig supply chain, along with changes in consumer demand, have resulted in price volatility. Fluctuations in supply and demand dynamics have affected the prices of fresh figs, with some periods experiencing price increases due to limited availability and others experiencing price decreases due to reduced demand.
 

Exporters of fresh figs faced challenges in accessing international markets due to travel restrictions, trade disruptions, and changing import regulations. With social distancing measures and limited access to physical stores, there has been a surge in online grocery shopping. This shift to online retail has impacted the fresh fig market as consumers increasingly turn to e-commerce platforms to purchase their food and groceries. Thus, the reduced number of COVID-19 cases and implementation of subsequent strategies by government and non-government organizations is set to drive the market revenue.
