Technavio, a company that develops over 2000 pieces of research every year and covers more than 500 technologies across 80 countries, has announced the top five vendors for the global macadamia market in their latest research report. This report also lists seven other prominent vendors who are expected to contribute to this market’s growth between 2017-2021.

Competitive vendor landscape

The growth of the global macadamia market is driven primarily by the rise in number of health-conscious consumers across the globe. The market is subject to rapidly changing consumer demands and preferences and is likely to be affected by regional, national, and local economic conditions and demographic trends. The market is highly concentrated as there are very few players operating in the market space. Vendors compete in terms of price, quality, reputation, variety, and taste. Each company varies in size and has distinctive competencies and produces different products using macadamias.

According to Manjunath Reddy, a lead analyst at Technavio for research on food, “Economic development will lead to improved living standards, increased per capita household incomes, and altered spending patterns and lifestyles across the globe during the forecast period. This is expected to work in favor of manufacturers in the global macadamia market.”
