China’s tomato product industry started late but the growth is rapid. Due to limited domestic consumption volume, most of products are available for export, so China has become the world’s largest exporter of tomato sauce. In 2013, the output of tomato products in China was about 1.27 million tons, of which domestic consumption volume was only 255 thousand tons, and most of products are available for export.
Currently the tomato production bases in China are concentrated in Xinjiang and Inner Mongolia provinces. Xinjiang accounts for more than two thirds of total output across the country, and less than one third in Inner Mongolia. China has advantages in geography and cost as for tomato product production, but China mainly produces primary tomato products.
There are many varieties of tomato products in China, but tomato sauce output has the largest volume, approximately accounting for 90% of tomato products. There are about 166 tomato manufacturers in China, but the market concentration ratio is high. COFCO TUNHE and CHALKIS steadily occupy the leading position in industry by relying on its large-scale production and owning tomato planting bases. At present, the processing capacity of tomato sauce is more than 2 million tons in China. The processing capacity is excessive and the low profit in this industry has not been changed fundamentally yet.
