Avocado Prices Explained

Avocado prices constantly swing as the trading year draws to a close. The major reduction in its global supply openly contributes to its elevated prices.

Thus, it recorded a whopping price of $60.5 per carton 2-layer package in June 2022 and it doesn’t stop fluctuating.

Why are avocado prices fluctuating?

1. Supply and Demand

Generally, these elements play a significant role in the avocado market. When supply is low due to weather-related issues, disease outbreaks, or other factors, its demand exceeds the available supply, driving up prices.

Conversely, when there are plenty of stocks and the need remains steady or decreases, avocado prices may fall.

2. Production Shortages

Normally, avocado production is not immune to natural disasters and weather events as several regions faced challenges in 2023.

For instance, Mexico, the world’s largest avocado producer experienced drought conditions that reduced yields. Additionally, California ( another significant avocado-growing region ) frequently battles wildfires and water scarcity. Thus, limiting its production and contributing to avocado rising prices.

3. Weather Conditions

Also, droughts or floods affect avocado costs. Thus, these events largely damage crops and reduce yields, ultimately increasing production costs and prices.

4. Transportation Costs

Avocados are often imported from countries like Mexico, Chile, and Peru. Therefore, if the cost of shipping and handling increases, it influences avocado retail prices.

Where do avocados come from?

Avocados originated in the region that includes modern-day Mexico and Central America. Additionally, the earliest evidence of avocado cultivation dates back to around 5000 BC in present-day Puebla, Mexico.

Also, the Spanish colonizers introduced avocados in Europe in the 16th century. Moreover, its cultivation spread to other parts of the world, including the United States, South Africa, Australia, and New Zealand through trade. Furthermore, it thrives in other parts of the world with suitable growing conditions such as Spain, Israel, and Kenya.

Today, Mexico is the world’s largest producer of avocados, accounting for around 30% of global production. Other major producers include Peru, Chile, the United States, Indonesia, Colombia, and the Dominican Republic.

What is the future price of avocado?

The World Avocado Market Projection Up 2030 report reported that the global avocado market is expected to reach a value of  $20.57 billion by 2028, growing at a CAGR of 6.1% from 2022 to 2028.

Additionally, this growth trajectory suggests that avocado prices may remain relatively stable or even increase slightly in the coming years as most of its pricing dynamics mainly rely on fluctuating weather systems.

Here’s the rough price estimate of avocado’s potential prices in 2030:

1. Low end: $2.50 per avocado – This price will be achieved if supply chain disruptions are resolved, production expands, and consumer preferences remain steady.

2. Mid-range: $3.00 per avocado – This value will likely reflect a balanced market with moderate supply and demand dynamics.

3. High end: $3.50 per avocado – This rough estimate cost happens when supply chain disruptions continue, production struggles to meet demand, or consumer preferences for avocados continue to grow.
