These benefits of dried over fresh fruits is expected to drive the global dried fruits market. Apart from this, dry fruits have a higher nutritional value. The growing inclination of people towards healthy food is another strong factor likely to propel the global dried fruits market.  Moreover, dried fruits are increasingly used as a seasoning and flavoring agent in bakery and dairy products. This increases the demand of dry fruits in the food and beverages industry. This is likely to bolster growth of the global dried fruits market.

Hypersensitivity of a few consumers towards certain dry fruits is one factor expected to restraint the growth of the global dried fruits market.
