Factors affecting pistachio exports in Turkey, Iran and the USA

Erdal KARACAN [1] , Figen CEYLAN [2]


Agricultural trade is inevitable for all countries to maintain the dietary needs and requirements of people. With rising income and changing life preferences, oriental products had become important commercial products. Pistacia vera, L, or pistachio with its widely accepted name, is an important commercial for West-Mid Asia and its trade is economically promising to producer countries. With this research, it was aimed to search the factors affecting pistachio exports of three prominent producer countries that are Turkey, Iran, and the USA. Within a panel econometric framework, the potential for developing pistachio trade was analysed. Due to the findings for Turkey, it can be noted that the pistachio exporters should focus on developing contacts with close neighbourhoods to increase export revenue. For much of the cases, existence of trade agreements seemed to affect trade revenue positively. Besides, trade partners’ income level or the population for the USA case seemed to be trade generating and improving factors. Therefore, the sector should focus on these circumstances for promoting pistachio production and trade.
