Banana that has been pressed, grounded, and blended into a soft, creamy paste or thick liquid, obtained in pulp format, is called banana puree. Banana puree prices have been on an upward trajectory recently with a sharp increase observed in early 2010. Banana puree prices have been largely unaffected by fluctuations in raw banana prices and Future Market Insights has recently prepared a report titled ‘Banana Puree Market: Global Industry Analysis (2012–2016) and Opportunity Assessment (2017–2027)’.

The APEJ region had a share of over a third in the global banana puree market in 2017 and is poised to gain a massive 375 BPS over the course of the forecast period.
