France is the leading bag-in-box exporter country by value (with €99.5 million) and the fourth by volume (after South Africa, Australia and Germany). French boxed wines account for one-sixth of the value and one-tenth of volumes exported worldwide. With an average price of 2.33 euros/litre, French boxed wines have a higher price tag than the global average (€1.37 /l), but not as high as some other producer countries (€3.61/l for Switzerland, €3.12 /l for Austria...) and countries that re-export the wines (€2.50/l for the Netherlands...). In terms of market share by value, France is a key player in Switzerland (44% of imported boxed wines), the United States (29%) and the United Kingdom (25%).
