Greenhouse Construction

Greenhouse Construction

One of the main promising areas for investment is construction of modern greenhouses.

Most of the greenhouses are located in the Turkestan, Almaty, Aktobe, and Zhambyl regions.

According to the statistics on the indicated greenhouse area in 2019, 1236.5 hectares produce vegetables, with 501 hectares producing cucumbers and 706 hectares producing tomatoes.

Among vegetable crops, tomatoes and cucumbers are the most common and significant food products.

In total, the consumption of tomatoes and cucumbers per capita was 18.5 kg, accounting for 20% of the total number of vegetables consumed.

Price differential compared to neighboring countries:
In 2019, the average retail price for tomatoes in Kazakhstan is 474.2 tenge/kg, which is 25% less than the average retail price in Russia. Cucumbers cost 382 tenge/kg, which is 19% less than in Russia.

During the intercrop, Kazakhstan depends on imports of tomatoes and cucumbers

The deficit is covered by imports from abroad, which in 2019 amounted to 43.4 thousand tons of tomatoes and 5.9 thousand tons of cucumbers.

The total volume of imports of these vegetable crops exceeds the volume of exports by more than one and a half times.

Total area in Kazakhstan: 1236.5 hectares, among them are: 501 hectares of cucumbers and 706 hectares of tomatoes *according to 2019 data

The total consumption of tomatoes and cucumbers: 18.5 kg per person = 20% of the total volume

Average retail price:

382 tenge/kg (19% cheaper than in the Russian Federation)

Average retail price:

474.2 tenge/kg (25% cheaper than in the Russian Federation)

Export potential from foreign investors

The EAEU countries and, in particular, the Russian Federation, are major importers of tomatoes and cucumbers, which provides convenient access to the large and receptive target market. Thus, in 2019, Russia imported 558 thousand tons of tomatoes and 100 thousand tons of cucumbers.

At the same time, it is worth noting that the total population of 9 Russian regions, bordering with Kazakhstan, is over 19 million people.
