Watermelon Prices, Trends & Forecasts | Provided by Procurement Resource

In the first and second quarters of 2023, watermelon producers in Bangladesh experienced a favorable market trend characterized by high yields and elevated prices, both in domestic and international markets. The key driver behind this positive shift was improved connectivity, enabling producers to access markets across the nation and beyond. Additionally, growers attributed their robust yields to favorable weather conditions. The opening of the Padma Bridge facilitated quicker transportation, reducing the risk of fruit spoilage during transit. A similar pattern was observed in India, where limited watermelon production, coupled with surging demand during Ramadan and heatwaves, led to escalating prices, ranging from Rs 600 to 1200 per quintal.

Its seeds are a valuable source of oil, used in cosmetics and lubricants due to their high fatty acid content. Moreover, watermelon rinds possess potential as a raw material for bioethanol production, contributing to renewable energy sources. The fruit's red pigment, lycopene, is employed in food coloring and supplements. Watermelon's natural sugars can be fermented for alcohol production, while its fiber content may serve as a base material for biodegradable plastics. This versatile fruit, beyond its culinary appeal, holds promise in various industries, offering both nutritional and sustainable solutions.

Watermelon farmers getting good yields, prices. The Padma Bridge's improved connectivity has allowed watermelon producers in southern Bangladesh to enjoy early season bumper yields and pricing as their crop can now be sold in markets across the whole nation. In order to start harvesting by mid-February, when prices are normally higher, farmers in more than 100 char regions of Patuakhali, Bhola, and Barishal have started growing watermelon in December rather than January for the previous three years.
