FAS New Delhi forecasts MY 2021/22 Indian walnut imports at 34,000 MT, six percent below the MY 2020/2021 figure. This decline is anticipated as both high domestic prices and trade uncertainty from Afghanistan, the fifth largest exporter of walnuts to India in MY 2020/2021, are likely to reduce consumption. Post is revising its import estimates for MY 2019/2020 to 30,000 MT and MY 2020/2021 to 36,000 MT based on the latest trade data. From September 2020 to May 2021, the United States remained India’s main supplier with 55 percent market share, followed by Chile with 26 percent.
