Ginger grows in many regions across the world but the largest exporters of ginger are China, India and Germany. As per 2018 data, China accounted for 38 percent of ginger exports while India was on second position with 15 percent of export market share.
Germany was surprisingly the third largest exporter of ginger with 12 percent market share followed by Netherlands with 6.7 percent market share.
In the recent years, export of organic ginger powder has increased from India. While China accounts for majority of fresh ginger exports to Europe, India is leading in dry ginger powder.
The demand for organic ginger powder is expected to grow in Europe in the coming years and Indian companies are ready to grab a bigger portion of this demand with their competitive prices and better quality compared to Chinese ginger powder.
United Kingdom also exported nearly 4 percent of the world’s ginger market. United States has high consumption of ginger in the local market and the export is minimal.
Consumption of ginger is high in France, Spain and Italy. The consumption of ginger is also high in India and China but due to higher production levels, these countries are able to export a large part of the market demand.
