Compared to December 2021, prices have risen by an average of 38% YoY for industrial ones and 7% YoY for artisan pastry goods. In some cases, prices have also doubled. Despite recent price increases, Italy continues to have a high demand for and sales of panettone, both domestically and in international markets. In 2022, the estimated revenues for domestic consumption ranged from USD 191.64-207.61M which would result in a growth of 18–19% YoY. In 2021, exports of panettone and pandoro reached their highest value of USD 532.34M, an increase of 10% YoY. Producers remain optimistic this year due to the high demand for the product "Made in Italy" from France, Germany, the USA, and China.
