International Market For Aloe vera
Aloe species are not grown commercially in Europe, therefore, the region relies on imports for its aloe supplies. Hence, venturing into the export of Aloe vera to Europe where they most assuredly rely on your supplies will no doubt generate profit for you.
The consumption of aloes in Europe is driven by the increased awareness among consumers of the importance of a healthy lifestyle derived from using the product, so international demand for the product continues to grow across different market segments. The demand for aloes has been consistent over the years, particularly in Europe.
Western Europe is the largest market for Aloe Vera and is expected to remain so in coming years. The largest market in Europe is Germany, accounting for 3100 tonnes and growing at around 7% in 2017. Major export destinations include china, Australia, United States, Italy and France. Aloe consumption benefits strongly from growth in the food supplement market. In some markets, such as Italy, aloes-based products make up the largest share of the botanical supplement market.
Interestingly, an increasing number of European consumers know about the health supporting benefits of aloes even outside West-European markets. The largest market for aloe gels and soaps is the cosmetics industry.
