Spain dominates in the global mandarin trade. In 2014, Spain exported 1,551 thousand tonnes of mandarins totaling 1,770 million USD, 4% over the previous year. Its primary trading partner on the global mandarin market was Germany, where it supplied 26% of its total mandarin exports in value terms, accounting for essentially all of Germany's total imports.

From 2007 to 2014, Spain was a net exporter of mandarins. Over this period, exports consistently exceeded imports in value terms. However, in physical terms, the difference was less pronounced, except for in recent years (2012, 2013 and 2014) when high import prices made it more notable.

China and Turkey were among the other main global suppliers of mandarins in 2014. The fastest growing exporters from 2007 to 2014 were China (+27% per year) and Pakistan (+25% per year). China, by virtue of this sustained growth, has been able to significantly strengthen its position in the global export structure.

Spain's top 5 trading partners in 2014 were Germany, France, the United Kingdom, Poland and the Netherlands, with a combined 70% share of Spain's mandarin exports. The share of Germany increased (+4 percentage points), while the share of France illustrated negative dynamics (-2 percentage points).
