In spite of the above described growth inducing factors, poor vertical integration among walnut manufacturers is notably hindering the global walnut market. This is not only being observed with respect to the management of the manufacturers, but also is noted in terms of production capacity. Such mediocre vertical integration has also caused many vendors to sell walnut products at expensive prices, thus making it difficult for those having less disposable income to buy them. Lastly, a shortage of walnuts and difficulty in transportation of the goods to remote and underdeveloped regions too is restraining the global walnut market substantially. Nevertheless, many businesses are keen to introduce quality and less expensive products in future, thus offsetting the restraints affecting the market.
