Market Drivers

Meal kit market growth will accelerate due to the hectic lifestyles of spouses, which means less time for cooking and shopping for produce. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics released data in 2019 that showed that women’s participation in the labor force rose from 57.1% to 57.4% in 2018, while NITI (National Institution for Transforming India) Aayog reported a rise in female labor from 23.1% to 27.9% in 2020. This rapid urbanization and rising number of female workers will fuel demand for meal kit market growth over the forecast period. Women are busier than men, which is why meal kits have become so popular.

In order to save time and effort, many educated people prefer meal kits to restaurant-prepared meals. According to the National Library of Medicine, cooking enjoyed a rise in popularity between 2003 and 2016. College-educated male chefs saw their percentage increase from 37.9% to 51.9% by 2016, and that of female chefs rose from 64.7% in 2003 to 68.7% in 2016. These individuals will most likely buy prepackaged meals as they are less likely to cook.

Market Restraints

Meal kits tend to be costlier than purchasing the same ingredients at a grocery store, which can be an issue for those on tight budgets. Meal kit delivery involves an intricate logistics network involving sourcing ingredients, packaging, and shipping. Meal kit companies, particularly smaller ones, may find it challenging to manage and scale operations efficiently. Meal kits have also been criticized for their excessive packaging waste – which can be considerable. Many providers are working hard to reduce their environmental impact, but this still poses a concern for customers.

Market Opportunities

Veganism has seen an exponential rise in demand for plant-based food since it became a trend due to animal cruelty awareness. A survey conducted by the Vegan Society revealed that 6,00,000 vegans in the UK have quadrupled since 2014-2018; according to government statistics, 1.1% of the UK’s population were vegetarians in 2019. 63% are newcomers, while 81% have been vegetarians for some time; many have given up meat to improve their health. As more vegans choose to eat plant-based meals – such as those offered by Freshly and Purple Carrot – demand will only continue to grow rapidly over the coming years.

Market Trends

Meal kit providers were expanding their selection beyond traditional dinner choices to include breakfast, lunch, and snack options as well. Meal kit companies have been joining forces with restaurants, grocery stores, and other food brands to expand their menus and reach new customers. The meal kit market was becoming increasingly competitive, with new players entering the space and established players expanding their offerings.

Report Segmentation of the vaccine market

Product Type Insight

By 2022, 65.7% of revenue will come from non-vegetarian’s meal kit delivery companies due to their high protein content and essential vitamins/minerals like A, B6, and B12. This segment continues to be a top contender over the forecast period as more individuals seek ways to increase their protein intake. Many companies now offer non-vegetarian meal programs with nutritious meats due to increasing awareness about the health benefits associated with non-vegetarian foods like chicken or fish, making it increasingly attractive to those looking to boost their protein intake.

Offering Type Insight

In 2022, the cook-and-eat segment enjoyed the highest revenue share at 62.7%, which is expected to remain dominant during the forecast period due to the growing popularity of home cooking among young people, particularly gourmet-style cooking. These recipes take more time than those offered in heat-and-eat sections but are much more efficient; you don’t need to go shopping for ingredients proportioned for one person or more, which saves time in shopping trips to supermarkets or groceries stores.

Service Insight

In 2022, the single delivery service segment emerged as the leading player in the meal kits delivery service market, accounting for 59.4% of the total revenue share. Unfortunately, many bachelors lack the necessary skills to cook nutritious meals on their own; service providers can assist them in discovering a nutritious diet that benefits both body and mind.

Distribution Channel Insight
