Primary data is collected through pretested questionnaire from 30 kinnow exporters out of total 40 exporters. Personal interviews were conducted by selecting convenient sampling technique. Along with export margin analysis of both markets, an effort is made to quantify impact of the major determinants on export of mandarin (Kinnow) to UAE and USA. According to data properties and suitability, multiple regression analysis technique is used for UAE and binary logistic regression technique was used for USA market. According to the finding, gross export margin for USA market is Rs. 30644 per ton and percent export margin is 70 percent while Net export margin is found as Rs. 14076.074 per ton. While in case of UAE market, Gross export margin is estimated as Rs.21601.2 per ton. For the Market of UAE, percent export margin is 64 percent whereas net export margin is Rs. 8583.294 per ton. In case of factors affecting the kinnow export to USA, the coefficient of education is 0.124, which shows positive and significant impact of education on kinnow export from Pakistan to USA.
