Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is Surge in demand for organic snacks. People are focusing more on healthy eating these days. There has been an increase in the incidence of diseases caused due to ignorance of food safety and eating unhealthy. With the increased level of awareness among the individuals, people now prefer to eat healthily and are trying to prevent health issues such as obesity, high cholesterol, and food poisoning.”

According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is Health benefits associated with pistachios. Pistachio is one of the healthiest nuts with low-fat content as compared with other nuts. The increased focus on healthy and safe eating is one of the major concerns in today's hectic lifestyle. People are turning toward eating natural foods instead of unhealthy processed foods. Nuts are being preferred as one of the best snacking options.

Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is Contamination of pistachio by aflatoxin. Pistachios can sometimes be contaminated with a harmful carcinogenic substance known as aflatoxin. Aflatoxin is produced by fungi that affect several tree nuts, including pistachio. It can occur at any stage of farming, harvesting or production. The prevention of development of aflatoxin in pistachio is one of the biggest challenges for the pistachio market. The shell of the pistachio nut splits naturally. After the shell, pistachios have a hull or outer covering on the nut, which protects the nut from contamination by fungi. Pistachios which lose this hull are most prone to the contamination by this fungus.
