Market segmentation

By product type

The main types of products covered in the MRFR study are burgers, pizzas, Asian cuisines, American foods and many others.

The hamburger segment constitutes the largest revenue share in the global market, owing to the growing demand for the product globally. The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) reveals that the consumption rate of burgers is around 50 billion per year. The growing demand for burgers can be a result of the wide availability of different options including various protein options such as venison, beef, etc. Additionally, many food service operators are exploring a variety of toppings of bacon, cheese, meatloaf and onions, etc. In 2020, Subway launched various Italian fillings along with several other options for their sandwich fillings.

Per end user

The major end users of the market are caterers, quick service restaurants, food service restaurants, etc.

The fast food segment has taken the top spot in the market and between 2020 and 2027 it will remain in the lead. Following the COVID-19 outbreak, many quick service restaurants have been working to expand their offline presence. The surge in preference for food delivery apps has been favorable to these restaurants in recent years, giving a significant boost to the growth rate of the segment.

Regional outlook

North America has risen to the top of the global market, earning the highest share thanks to increased consumer spending on a variety of fast food outlets. Encouraging factors for the regional market include increasing availability of different cuisines as well as cost-effective snacks with appealing flavors. Although the 2008 recession slowed the rate of expansion of the food industry and reduced consumer confidence, consumption and average spending on fast food restaurants still managed to increase due to convenience and low cost. Consumers still prefer the convenience associated with restaurant dining, attracted by the lower prices of fast food compared to table-service restaurant food. Several fast-food chains are taking advantage of the pandemic-induced chaos by offering new deals and offers on top of their low-cost menus. In the United States, McDonald’s is the first chain of quick service restaurants (QSR).

Meanwhile, the Asia-Pacific market is likely to achieve the fastest growth rate between 2020 and 2027, driven by the growing number of consumers and their changing tastes and preferences. Moreover, increasing their discretionary income and improving their standard of living will increase the demand for different snacks and fast foods. Asian food products are not only preferred in Asia-Pacific, but also in developed countries, especially among millennials and the increased preference for ready-to-eat foods. Moreover, the launch of new varieties of burgers and sandwiches due to the increase in R&D investments in food processing and the emphasis placed on strengthening the distribution network will also favor the regional industry.
