Shift in Consumption Patterns and Developments in the Field of Genetically Modified Crops to Drive Market

Studies have shown that the moderate consumption of edible nuts has a positive impact on the human health, reducing incidence of conditions such as coronary heart diseases, gallstones, cancers, inflammation, hypertension and diabetes. Moreover, the moderate consumption of nuts is also known to help reduce bad cholesterol, body weight, and have a positive influence on metabolic syndrome, and visceral adiposity. The rising awareness regarding these factors and the increasing affordability of edible nuts owing to rising disposable incomes have brought about a shift in consumption patterns of the global consumer, driving the increased uptake of a variety of nutritious nuts and seeds.

Developments in the field of genetically modified crops in response to the rising demand for sustainable agricultural produce for the mounting global population has also positively impacted the global nuts and seeds market in the past few years. In the near future, rising urbanization, exploitation of arable land for commercial purposes, and reduced fertility will necessitate the cultivation of genetically modified plants on a larger scale. This factor will have a significant impact on the growth prospects of the global nuts and seeds market.

Adverse Effects Related to Excess Consumption and High Costs to Hinder Growth

The high fat content of nuts and seeds can have a negative impact on the health if consumed in excess. Though most of the fat in nuts and seeds is unsaturated, which helps in reducing blood cholesterol levels, high intake can result in high calories and could trigger health concerns such as obesity, high blood pressure, and respiratory problems. Such concerns hinder the growth prospects of the global nuts and seeds market to a certain extent.

The high costs incurred during the complex and long-winding stages of processing nuts and seeds increase the cost of the end-product, making them unaffordable to the cost-conscious demographic. This especially comes ahead as a major retaining factor for the market in developing and under-developed countries and has a significant impact on the overall development of the global nuts and seeds market.
