Global Food Industry

World food retail sales generate over $4 trillion per year. The industry has evolved greatly over the past twenty years thanks to technological advances, keeping pace with growing demand for convenience foods. This sector calls for greater demand for packaging to ensure safe, fresh, easy-to-use products. Demand for better quality foods and in greater quantity means the food industry drives several other industries such as convenience stores, supermarkets, hypermarkets and gasoline outlets with grocery sections. Supermarkets and hypermarkets represent the biggest market share in terms of sales.

Food retail is dominated by outfits in the EU and the US, growing their market share in emerging nations and small retailers accounting for an increasing share of food sales. The 15 leading global supermarket companies represent around one third of global supermarket sales. The industry is not concentrated, with the 50 leading food manufacturers representing under a fifth of world packaged food sales. Food manufacturers are developing specialized product lines to remain competitive and direct growth rather than the traditional approach of diversifying product portfolios. Regional markets and product lines may be concentrated, though the global food industry is not. Areas exhibiting market concentration include sales of branded goods such as baby food and breakfast cereal.

The food industry encompasses several categories of food including: dairy, fish & seafood, eggs, fruit and vegetables, luxury food, organic food, meat & poultry, packaged foodcereal-based products as well as functional food such as vitamins and nutraceutical.

Food Business Key Market Segments

The fruit and vegetables market lead the food industry at almost 64%. The Asia-Pacific region accounts for over 45% of the overall market.

In the frozen food segment, meat leads at over 40% of overall market value. The EU holds close to 38% of the market. Brasil Foods is the world leader in the frozen foods market, accounting for 5% of overall market share.

The world market for muscle food packaging, which encompasses meat, seafood and poultry packaging, is expected to exceed $31 billion by 2017, according to Global Industry Analysts. Technological advances, better packaging practices and packaging facilitating smaller portions are fuelling the market.

Meat products lead the market representing a quarter of overall value. The EU represents close to half of the overall world market for canned food. Del Monte Foods is the world leader in canned food, holding over 5% of the overall market.

The dairy market is fuelled by end-use market demand and new product applications. The industry has fared the global economic crisis well, showing strong growth.
