Snacks Market to Register Stable Expansion During the Forecast Period

The global snacks market size is projected to reach USD 708.6 billion by 2025, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc., registering a CAGR of 6.2% over the forecast period. Healthy eating, indulgence, informality, premiumization, provenance, and value scrutiny are some of the crucial factors driving the market.

The desire for fresh food is growing and people are rejecting industrial food. Consumer concerns with cues including locally grown, processed recognizable ingredients, and shortest ingredient lists have accelerated in recent years. Price drops in recent years, coupled with increased population, improved foodservice, and rising disposable income, is expected to drive demand for processed snacks in developing markets. Growing demand for convenience foods and ready-to-eat meals in modern trade channels is also expected to spur market growth.

The Central and South America market is expected to grow at a consistent rate over the forecast period. Brazil, Argentina, and Chile remain key markets for international brands to increase their customer base. Rising product sales, especially in emerging economies, indicate that people are willing to spend more on snack products owing to improving disposable incomes. This trend is anticipated to continue in the near future.

Various factors such as price-affordability, ease-of-use options, and enhanced product quality have been contributing to product demand. Regional players are focusing on providing products that suit varied preferences of consumers in their respective regions, which gives these players a substantial growth opportunity in developing countries.

The snacks market is highly competitive in nature and, therefore, marked by an extensive range of new products and flavors. Key players in the global snacks market include Tyson Foods, McCain Foods, Aviko, General Mills, and Pepsico. Acquisitions, mergers, joint ventures, and product innovation remain key strategies in order to increase sales.
