World Macadamia Production 2008 to 2018

Global macadamia production more than doubled over the last decade, increasing from almost 28,000 tonnes (kernel basis) in 2007 to 59,300 tonnes in 2018.5 Today’s global top producers are South Africa and Australia, accounting for over half of the world’s macadamia production in 2018
with shares of 29 percent and 25 percent, respectively (Figure 3). Kenya is the third producer with a share of 13 percent (7,750 tonnes on kernel basis), followed by the U.S. (9 percent) and China (8 percent).6 For China, the leading nut-in-shell (NIS) importer globally, the share of NIS imports processed in the country that may be counted as domestic kernel production is uncertain
