India is the leading mango producer in the world, producing an estimated 24.7 million tons of mangos annually. This number accounts for almost half of the entire global mango production. Although the mangos are grown and harvested in India, very few of the mangos are distributed in the worldwide market. Less than 1% of the total mangos grown are released for international trade or sale. India is the leading consumer of mangos worldwide and consumes most of the mangos it produces.
Indonesia is the second-leading mango producer in the world. Every year, Indonesia produces about 3.6 million tons of Mangos. The ideal climate and ample farmland to cultivate and harvest the crops in Indonesia lend themselves to being a world power in mango production. Although Indonesia produces far fewer mangos than India, it exports and ships more mangos than any other country.
Every year, China produces 2.4 million tons of mangos. These mangos are both consumed within China and exported to other countries globally. While India is undoubtedly the leading producer, China is among the top three countries in mango production.
In Pakistan, nearly 2.3 million tons of mangos are produced every year. Mangos grow well in Pakistan, which is located close to the mango capital of the world, India. Pakistan mangos are sent across the globe, and the United States Department for Agriculture imports several mangos from Pakistan. Usually, mango in the US will cost about $5.74 for a 4kg box.
Mexico, like China, produces 2.4 million tons of mangos every year. Mexico’s warm, almost tropical climate makes it an excellent location for mangos. Many mangos from Mexico are imported to the United States every year, making it a lucrative crop for Mexican farmers to produce.
The warm climate in Brazil makes mangos grow exceptionally well. Every year, Brazil produces 2.1 million tons of mangos. While many of these mangos are distributed and consumed within South America, several are exported to countries worldwide.
Although the actual quantity in tons is challenging to determine for Nigeria, this country is one of the leading mango producers in the global market. Most economists estimated Nigeria produces about 800,000 tons of mangos. Nigeria produces eight different types of mangos, which puts their mangos in high demand compared to other countries. Nigeria will sell most of its mangos within the country, but several sweet or aromatic mangos are sold internationally.
