DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The "Global Hazelnut Market - Growth, Trends and Forecast (2019 - 2024)" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.
The global hazelnut consumption was valued at USD 0.52 billion in 2018, registering a CAGR of 10.1% during the forecast period (2019-2024).
Turkey dominates the hazelnut production, with an estimated share of 67.1%, and a consumption share of 52.3%, globally. In terms of consumption, Europe is expected to register the highest CAGR of 7.6% during the forecast period, due to the increasing demand for hazelnuts from the chocolate industries of Europe.
With increasing demand from consumers and high health benefits, the market is expected to grow over the forecast period. Research studies show that consuming hazelnuts can lower LDL (bad) cholesterol and increase HDL (good) cholesterol, which is increasing the sales of hazelnut.
In Australia, hazelnuts are mostly used in desserts, such as cakes, muffins, chocolate dishes, praline, or pastries. Buhler, the world's largest provider of nut processing technology, had announced that it expanded into the natural hazelnut market in May 2018, with the Turkish launch of its innovative combination of sorting technologies, leading to natural hazelnut processing systems.
