In 2013, global production of frozen vegetables was estimated at 4,476 thousand tonnes, which was 162.81 thousand tonnes more than in 2012. There was an annual increase of 2.3% in physical terms and 2.8% in value terms over the period 2007-2013.

The countries with the largest production of frozen vegetables in absolute volumes in 2013 were China (977.08 thousand tonnes), Belgium (809.35 thousand tonnes), the USA (452.27 thousand tonnes), India (381.95 thousand tonnes) and Mexico (312.00 thousand tonnes), which accounted for 65.5% of global production.

The most notable growth rates in frozen vegetables production among the main producing countries from 2007 to 2013 were attained by the Netherlands and the USA (+15.8% and +11.0% per year), while for the other global leaders the pace of growth was more modest. Poland showed negative dynamics (-1.5%).

In 2013, the global frozen vegetables market had total revenues of 5.03 billion, with a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 3.7% between 2007 and 2013.

It is expected that in the next five years, the frozen vegetables sector, driven by population growth, as a whole will continue its upward production trend.
