Morocco follows Spain in the world rankings

Morocco’s tomato exports have increased significantly, from 44.81 million kilograms in 2012 to 629.51 million kilograms in 2021, according to Comtrade (the world’s largest international trade data repository).

Morocco is therefore considered to be the fourth largest tomato exporter in the world, just behind Spain which occupies the third position in this ranking.

The high rate of Moroccan exports should enable Morocco to overtake its northern neighbor to take third place. Over the last decade, Moroccan tomato exports increased by 41.84%, while Spanish tomato exports decreased by 10.19%.

According to data from Comtrade, Morocco in 2021 accounted for more than 8.10% of world exports, while Spain captured nearly 8.53% of the exportable supply at the global level. Thus, Morocco continues its strong growth in the tomato market, in 2021, Spanish production was 5.24% higher than Moroccan production. In 2022, Morocco will be able, for the first time in history, to overtake the Spaniards.

In the world ranking, Mexico stands out with 24.51% of exports, followed by the Netherlands with 12.02%, Spain and Morocco.
