USDA estimates for 2020/21 are for a similar volume. India is a major consumer of grapes. In 2020/21, imports are expected to rise 8% to 8,000 tons due to decreased domestic supplies. China accounts for around two-thirds of the imported volume, followed by Afghanistan (9%) and the US (8%).
India is also a major exporter of fresh table grapes. 2020/21 table grape exports are projected at 150,000 tons, down 19% from 2019/20, due to lower production and reduced product quality. Over 50% of Indian grape exports are shipped to the EU and the UK. The top three destinations are the Netherlands (29%), Bangladesh (17%), and Russia (12%).
