Drivers: Rising demand for convenience food
The increasing consumer preference toward convenience foods indirectly favors the increasing demand for frozen products as they require less time and effort as compared to cooking from scratch. The processed food market is driven by the greater need for convenience due to the busy lifestyles of consumers. This, in turn, increases the demand for frozen products. Increasing disposable income is also one such factor that has a huge influence on the growth of the frozen food market as it increases the buying power of consumers.
Challenges: Lack of cold chain infrastructure in developing economies
Cold chain logistics have proved to be a vital requirement to increase the market share of frozen food in any country. However, developing countries are still lacking in cold chain infrastructure and are unable to supply safe frozen food products to their citizens. Frozen food has a long shelf-life; however, due to lack of infrastructure, the product is wasted easily leading to a loss for frozen food manufacturers. Lack of investment due to the monetary crisis in developing economies has been one reason slowing down the cold chain logistics business. This, in turn, has hampered the frozen food market. Poor infrastructure in cold chain logistics has also directly impacted the import & export business of frozen food products in developing countries such as Bangladesh, South Africa, and Myanmar. However, these developing countries offer a huge opportunity for investment in the frozen food market due to the rising acceptance among consumers in urban areas.
