Exports to Malaysia were also hindered by the increased price of the U.S. product and strong competition from China and the EU. The best growth in exports of fresh potatoes was to the Philippines, up 42 percent, as the U.S. had access for table-stock for the first time; Indonesia up 175 percent, based mainly on increases in chipping potatoes. World demand for potatoes and products will continue to grow at close to 10 percent per year in the future; however, the U.S. will face increasing competition from the EU and China. The EU is set to have a very large crop in 2014 with extremely low prices, while China enjoys duty-free access in Southeast Asia and is seeing continued expansion in frozen processing. However, U.S. quality is still recognized and will result in increased sales if prices remain competitive. PG
