Sunflower Seed Market Overview in Saudi Arabia
The revenue of the sunflower seed market in Saudi Arabia amounted to $978K in 2010, waning by -45.9% against the previous year. This figure reflects the total revenues of producers and importers (excluding logistics costs, retail marketing costs, and retailers' margins, which will be included in the final consumer price). Overall, sunflower seed consumption, however, continues to indicate a drastic setback. The most prominent rate of growth was recorded in 2009 with an increase of 78% y-o-y. In that year, the sunflower seed market reached its peak level of $1.8M, and then declined slightly in the following year.
