Researchers presented final data on the European organic sector in 2015, according to which the European market of organic production in 2015 increased by 13% and reached almost €30 billion (particularly in the European Union up to €27.1 billion).
FIBL experts noted that the rate of growth of the organic market in Europe exceeded 10% for the first time since the global financial crisis of 2007-2008. In particular, in Germany, the market grew by 11%, but in France and Italy — 15%.
The largest organic market in Europe is Germany (€8.6 billion), followed by France (€5.5 billion), followed by the UK (€2.6 billion) and Italy (€2.3 billion). According to preliminary data, in 2016 the German organic market grew to €9.5 billion, and became the second largest in the world after the us (€35.8 billion in 2015).
Ordinary Europeans spent on organic products for the year of €36,4, and a resident of the EU €53,7. The highest consumption of organic products per capita in Switzerland (€262 — the most in the world), Denmark (€191) and Sweden (€177).

Growth of organic farmland continued to lag behind the growth of demand for organic products. However, it grew faster than in previous years — 8.2% or nearly 1 million hectares. At the end of 2015, the global area of organic farmland has reached 12.7 million hectares, of which 11.2 million hectares in the EU. The largest area of organic farmland had Spain (1970 ha), Italy (1490 ha) and France (1370 ha). In each of these countries the annual increase of organic land exceeded 100 thousand hectares. In 9 countries organic certification had more than 10% of the area of farmland, mostly in Liechtenstein (30,2%), Austria (21.3 per cent) and Sweden (16.9 percent).
In Europe, there were nearly 350 thousand producers of "organic" (in the EU — 270 thousand), and 60 thousand of organic processors and importers of organic 3700. A number of manufacturers of "organic" has grown on 3% (in the EU — 5%), organic processors increased by 12%, and importers — 19%.
According to experts FIBL, organic production is lagging behind demand. Therefore, European countries should follow a clear strategy of organic production, contribute to a reduction in market chains to improve the statistics and collection of information in the organic sector.
