Onion Import Data India

Onion is an indispensable ingredient of most Indian cooking whether it is the richest of the rich or the poorest of the poor. India is globally the second largest onion producer after China. The major onion producing Indian states are Maharashtra, Karnataka, Madhya Pradesh, Bihar, and Gujarat. But from amongst these, 45% of the total Indian onions are grown in Maharashtra and Karnataka.

With the expanded monsoon period in 2019 in India, some major onion growing regions of Andhra Pradesh, Nasik in Maharashtra and Karnataka led to the delayed arrival of onions in the Indian markets. The fresh onion crops usually arrived in the latter months of November and December, reducing the onion shipments from 2000-3000 tons a day to 700-800 tons a day in New Delhi markets. This raised the price of onion per kg in one week. This correlation between the high price and plumming supply of onions in markets made the Indian government to import onions from outside.

Onion import data revealed that the government of India imported 11,000 tonnes of onions from Turkey and 6,900 tonnes from Egypt. The onion import consignments are expected to multiply in numerals in the next 10 years. These increasing import activities are creating business opportunities for the Indian onion importers.

As onions are one of the primary ingredients of every Indian kitchen, the deficit in onion supply in the market brought the onion importers in the picture. Thus, these importers created a comprehensive supply value chain between them and the common man. Some of the main onion importers in India are

  •  Sakthi Agro Impex
  • Sri Bharani Exports Imports
  • Jupiter Exports
  • Adjeyaveerapandia Nadar Br
  • A M Ahamed Co

Onions with their uniqueness and aroma have globally created a huge market. These markets build a give and take relations between the buyers and sellers nations making them importing and exporting partners. So the major onion importing partners of India are the USA, UK, Saudi Arabia, Malaysia, Germany, Canada, UAE, Turkey, Spain, China, etc.

According to the onion import data, India will import 1,00,000 tons of onions, in a bid to curb rising prices in the coming days. This tremendous import of onions has opened the window of import business as a government in the upcoming days is going to build contact for approximately 30,000 tonnes of onions import.
