Thailand dominates in the global trade of prepared or preserved pineapples. In 2014, Thailand exported 528 thousand tonnes of prepared or preserved pineapples totaling 509 million USD, which was 1 million USD less than the year before. Its primary trading partner on the global pineapple market was the U.S., where it supplied 29% of its total exports of prepared or preserved pineapples in value terms, accounting for 48% of the U.S. total imports.

From 2007 to 2014, Thailand was a net exporter of prepared or preserved pineapples. Over this period, exports consistently exceeded imports in value terms. However, in physical terms, the difference was more pronounced, except for 2007 when low import prices made it less notable.

Philippines and Indonesia were among the other main global suppliers of prepared or preserved pineapples in 2014. However, the fastest growing exporters from 2007 to 2014 were Indonesia (+16% per year) and the Netherlands (+15% per year). Indonesia significantly strengthened its position in the global export structure.

In 2014, Thailand's top 5 trading partners were the U.S., Germany, the Russian Federation, the United Arab Emirates and the United Kingdom, with a combined 48% share of Thailand's exports of prepared or preserved pineapples. The share of the U.S. increased (+4 percentage points), while the share of Germany illustrated negative dynamics (-2 percentage points).
