Global Frozen Food Market to Exceed US$362 Bn in 2029, Reports Fairfield Market Research in a New Study


Frozen Food Market is Likely to Register the CAGR of 4.9 % Between the Forecast Years of 2022 to 2029.

London, Feb. 10, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Majorly driven by the retail that currently accounts for more than 57% of total sales, global frozen food market is all set for a health growth outlook in the upcoming years. The market is poised to exhibit nearly 4.9% growth in value between 2022 and 2029 in a latest published report of Fairfield Market Research. The market revenue reached beyond US$243.8 Bn in 2021 and will most likely surpass the revenue worth US$362 Bn toward the end of 2029. “Offline sales are contributing a whopping 80% share that covers all frozen categories but we expect phenomenal performance of online distribution channels in the frozen food space,” says the analyst at Fairfield Market Research.

The various flexible packaging formats play a vital role in shaping frozen food sales as they warrant extended shelf-life, security, safe storage, accessibility, and contamination prevention. Although rising demand for fresh, natural foods poses a huge challenge, the market will continue to receive tailwinds from the greater convenience quotient of frozen foods, and supportive claims of the FDA, and IFCI.

Insights into Segmental Analysis

Retail continues to be the leading distribution channel with over 57% value share. Supermarkets and hypermarkets thus remain the key revenue generators for frozen food brands. The share of foodservice providers is however also on the rise, suggest the primary findings of the global frozen food market report by Fairfield Market Research. Large format supermarkets and hypermarkets especially surge ahead as they house the sufficient infrastructure and space for storage.

Favorable reports on the health and nutrition profile, and origin of frozen foods further attract a larger consumer mass, in turn building the sales. Ready meals, the top area of application, make up for more than 38% of total demand. Nearly 15% of overall demand is contributed by the fruits and vegetables segment. The report also marks a collective contribution of around 24% from the meat and poultry, and seafood segments.

Insights into Regional Analysis

Accounting for more than 27% of the overall market valuation, North America leads the global frozen food space. Europe follows, further trailed closely by Asia Pacific. While the former two remain at the forefront in the light of the presence of accomplished cold chain infrastructure, and value chain, the latter is challenged by relatively incompetent cold chain infrastructure and logistics despite anticipating a higher CAGR through 2029. The frozen food import-export scenario thus does not appear to be overwhelming across the developing regional markets of the Asian subcontinent, says the report. The markets here will however benefit from the flourishing waves of veganism, and the rapidly proliferating fast food chains.
