Global Canned Food Industry

 

The global market for canned food recorded more than 2.5% growth in 2010 to generate more than $80.7 billion, according to research from MarketLine. The market is expected to record almost 15% expansion between 2010 and 2015 to exceed $92.7 billion.

 

The global canned food market is expected to exceed a volume of 23 billion kilograms in 2015, representing almost 11% expansion in five years. The canned foods industry is involved in the retail sales of canned ready meals, canned vegetables, canned fruit, canned pasta and noodles, canned desserts, and canned seafood and meat products.

 

Key Market Segments

 

Canned meat products represent the leading market segment in the global canned food industry. This segment accounts for more than 25% of the overall market in terms of value, reports MarketLine.

 

Industry Leaders

 

MarketLine estimates the Del Monte Foods Company generates more than 5% of the global canned food market in terms of value, making it the leading company currently operating in the market.

 

Regional Market Share

 

  • The EU holds a 49% share of the global canned food market in terms of value, according to MarketLine. The EU canned food industry was worth almost $38 billion in 2010, having recorded yearly growth in excess of 2% between 2006 and 2010. Market growth is expected to accelerate slightly to a yearly rate of little over 2% between 2010 and 2015, bringing the market to almost $42 billion.

 

  • The Asia-Pacific canned food industry recorded yearly growth in excess of 4% between 2006 and 2010, reaching almost $15 billion in 2010, according to research from MarketLine. Canned meat products represented the leading market segment at close to $7 billion, accounting for 48% of the overall market. Market growth is expected to accelerate to a yearly rate of 4.5% between 2010 and 2015, when the market should be worth over $18 billion.

 

  • The US canned food industry recorded yearly growth in excess of 2.5% between 2006 and 2010 to reach almost $14.5 billion, reports MarketLine. Canned vegetables represented the leading market segment generating $4.5 billion, accounting for over 31% of the overall market. Market growth is expected to slow to a yearly rate of less than 2.5% between 2010 and 2015 to just over $16 billion.

 

  • The UK canned food industry has been recording steady growth over recent years due to product innovation and consumer loyalty, reports KeyNote. Rising commodity prices, for example for metal used in the canning process, along with food price inflation has caused fast market growth in terms of value over the past four years. Canned vegetables represent the leading market segment, generating $1.2 billion in 2010, accounting for almost 31% of the overall market.

 

  • While canned desserts, fruits and cooking sauces did not record growth in the UK between 2009 and 2010, most other canned food sectors grew despite falling volume sales. Canned vegetables are witnessing less of a decline due in major part to baked bean sales. Despite the fact that consumers upped their purchases of canned foods during the economic recession as an alternative to more expensive formats, volume sales still fell. Leading players in the UK market also operate at international level, and their solid brand identities and huge buying power are a strong source of competition for smaller companies trying to enter the market. Multinational outfits with UK presence include Del Monte, Heinz, and Japanese Mitsubishi Corporation-owned Princes. New companies find it difficult to enter the market due to a combination of the success of these larger companies and declining volume sales.

 

Market Outlook

 

Global canned food sales are expected to grow as consumers become increasingly used to benefiting from the convenience of canned foods as part or all of their meals at home as they cut back on spending to eat out.

 

The global canned food market is forecast to grow by close to 17% through 2015, representing more than 50% expansion in nine years, according to research from KeyNote. As other packaging formats rise in popularity, volume sales in some sectors, including canned cooking sauces and canned desserts, are expected to record a sharp decline.
