Market Dynamics

“Frozen food market is witnessing strong growth due to the developments in the retail landscape”

The development of retail channels in the form of supermarkets, hypermarkets, and convenience stores has driven the growth of the frozen food market. These large food chains form a significant growing outlet for frozen food products, owing to the latest trend of on-the-go consumption. With this, the supermarkets are also able to capture their share in the frozen bakery food market, as a result of the increasing demand for exotic vegetables and fruits and in-house bakers. This trend is driving the frozen food market, especially the frozen bread market.

Rising preference for fresh and natural food products is a major restraint for frozen food market”

To some consumers, frozen food is thought of a product that is an inferior substitute for fresh food, which is one of the major restraints for this market. There is a notion that food processed a year or more before it is consumed could not be nutritious. However, statements such as “frozen produce can be just as good as the fresh stuff in terms of nutrition” from the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the International Food Information Council (IFIC) about the nutrient content of frozen food are changing the consumer perception.

“Increasing trade of processed food provides an opportunity for growth.”

Globalization and increasing international trade are the main factors for the development of the food industry, globally. With economic development and increasing PPP, consumers can afford premium products with improved nutritional value and shelf life. Consumers now prefer a variety of food products such as premium and exotic fruits & vegetables. This drives the trade of various food products between regions.

The study involves four major activities to estimate the current market size of the frozen food market. Exhaustive secondary research was done to collect information on the market, the peer market, and the parent market. These findings, assumptions, and the market size was validated with industry experts across the value chain through primary research. Both the top-down and bottom-up approaches were employed to estimate the complete market size. Thereafter, the market breakdown and data triangulation were used to estimate the market size of segments and subsegments.

Secondary Research

In the secondary research process, various secondary sources such as Hoovers, Bloomberg BusinessWeek, and Dun & Bradstreet were referred to, to identify and collect information for this study. These secondary sources included annual reports, press releases & investor presentations of companies, white papers, certified publications, articles by recognized authors, gold standard & silver standard websites, food safety organizations, regulatory bodies, trade directories, and databases.

Market Size Estimation

Both the top-down and bottom-up approaches were used to estimate and validate the total size of the frozen food market. These methods were also used extensively to estimate the size of various sub-segments in the market. The research methodology used to estimate the market size includes the following:

  • The key players in the industry and markets were identified through extensive secondary research.
  • The value chain and market size of the frozen food market, in terms of value, were determined through primary and secondary research.
  • All percentage shares, splits, and breakdowns were determined using secondary sources and verified through primary sources.
  • All possible parameters that affect the market covered in this research study were accounted for, viewed in extensive detail, verified through primary research, and analyzed to obtain the final quantitative and qualitative data.
  • The research included the study of reports, reviews, and newsletters of top market players, along with extensive interviews for key opinions from leaders such as CEOs, directors, and marketing executives.

Data Triangulation

After arriving at the overall market size from the estimation process described above, the total market was split into several segments. To complete the overall market engineering process and arrive at the exact statistics for all segments, the data triangulation and market breakdown procedures were employed, wherever applicable. The data was triangulated by studying various factors and trends from both the demand and supply sides. In addition, the market size was validated using both the top-down and bottom-up approaches. It was then verified through primary interviews. Hence, three approaches were adopted-top-down approach, bottom-up approach, and the one involving expert interviews. Only when the values arrived at from the three points match, the data is assumed to be correct.
