Market Dynamics

Developments in retail landscape

The retail food industry has witnessed significant growth over the past few years, globally. The growth in the Asian market can be attributed to Foreign Direct Investment, domestic conglomerates, and government investments. According to India Brand Equity Foundation (IBEF), the Indian retail industry is one of the fastest-growing in the world. The industry here is expected to grow to USD 1,200 billion by 2021 from USD 795 billion in 2017. The relationship between retail, the food processing industry, and the logistics sector has grown stronger, which facilitates easy availability of a wide range of products to rural towns.

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, supermarkets are also able to capture their share in the frozen food market, with an 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

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. Nutrients such as vitamin C and folate can change with the change in temperature while food items stored at varying temperatures can lose their nutrients. Since frozen foods are stored at a constant low temperature, they do not lose such essential nutrients.

Increasing trade of processed food

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. According to Agriculture Marketing Resource Centre (AGMRC), the US is the world’s largest producer of strawberries. In 2014, it produced 3 billion pounds of strawberries, valued at USD 2.9 billion of which 63.4 million pounds of frozen strawberries were exported, valued at USD 45 million.

The global seafood market is also witnessing immense growth due to the health benefits offered by these products. According to the FAO, an estimated 2.3% hike in global fish production combined with good market conditions around the world led to a significant boost to trade revenues in 2017. India, Peru, Ecuador, Chile, and Norway were the top exporters of seafood in 2017. As these products are highly perishable, seafood is majorly traded in frozen form. Increasing export and import of such products boosts the overall frozen food market growth.

The convenient & ready meals segment is estimated to dominate the global market in 2018.

By product, the convenient & ready meals segment is estimated to dominate the global market in 2018. This is due to the changing and busy lifestyles of people, globally, which has increased the consumption of frozen foods, globally. Frozen foods are easy to prepare and take less time for preparation. They are healthy and have high nutritional value. Frozen food export business has also increased in recent times due to the high acceptance of these products among consumers and brand awareness among developing countries.

The offline segment is estimated to account for the largest share in the frozen food market in 2018.

By distribution channel, the offline segment is estimated to account for the largest share in the global market in 2018. The infrastructure of the convenience stores and hypermarkets includes freezing and temperature-controlled facilities, which are driving the growth of this segment as a distribution channel for frozen products.

The ready-to-cook segment is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period in the frozen food market.

By type, the ready-to-cook segment is estimated to grow at the highest CAGR. Factors such as changing lifestyles and increasing population of working women are driving the growth of ready-to-eat frozen food, globally.

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.
