MALATYA. Turkish apricot exports have declined markedly year-on-year, largely due to the coronavirus pandemic. Much now depends on the demand situation in the coming months.

Lira and demand situation are decisive

As expected, the apricot market remains quiet in the last week of the year and market players do not expect it to pick up again until mid-January. For this reason, prices for large fruits are likely to fall slightly in the coming days; for small fruits, this is not to be expected due to the low quantity available. Two factors will be decisive for the coming price development: On the one hand, it depends on how the Turkish lira develops, and on the other hand, it depends on how demand will develop in the course of the pandemic.
