The leading importers

The United States has a stable demand for imported processed and canned tuna (HS16) in 2019, reaching nearly 213 thousand tons. However, the US continues to be the largest import market for this tuna product category in the world, accounting for 13% of the world's total imports of processed and canned tuna. In the US, all imported HS16 tuna products are for domestic consumption, and so are the raw tuna products used to produce canned tuna products. Therefore, based on this figure and the US population in 2019, the people of this country consume about 600gr of tuna per person.

In Europe, the market for HS16 tuna products is expanding. In particular, in Spain where HS16 tuna imports reached 3.2kg / person in 2019, more than 5 times higher than US consumption. Compared to previous years, the amount of tuna purchased by Spanish buyers increased sharply. The majority of imported tuna products are steamed meat / loin processed at local factories and then exported as canned tuna to other EU member states. In 2019, Spain also made tuna-related deals for $ 817 / ton cheaper, this decline is largely due to the price of steamed skipjack tuna.

The Netherlands is another EU country that is increasing imports of HS16 tuna. Although the country's total import volume is less than one-quarter of that of Spain, its imports in 2019 were 15,231 tons higher than in 2018. Dutch ports are the gateway to European markets. other; Therefore, the majority of tuna imported into this country is redistributed to other EU markets.

Although tuna import from Italy, UK and Germany in 2019 decreased compared to 2018, these countries are still the largest tuna importers in the world, an attractive tuna import market for tuna processor in the world.

In the Middle East, Saudi Arabia's tuna imports also saw strong growth, with imports doubling in 2017.
