Key Market Issues

Convenience Stores held a 65% share of retail sales of Savory Snacks in India in 2012. Hypermarkets and Supermarkets trailed behind them, with 26.2%. This highlights the impulsive nature of much Savory Snack buying in India.

Increased urbanization encourages consumers to eat out more often, with the traditional way of life being replaced by a fast-paced lifestyle.

The majority of Savory Snacks consumers in India are heavy frequency consumers, eating once a week.

The quality of a product is important for Indian consumers as the Savory Snacks sector evolves to take into account pressures on consumer spending and rising awareness of weight issues. As Indian consumers gain more disposable income, they are able to spend more on non-essential food products such as savory snacks that are benefiting from the increasing importance of snacking among middle-class professionals, particularly within urban areas.

Savory Snacks sales in India are largely driven by age related products and those that meet specific requirements consumers see as being caused by their life stage.

Processed Snacks and Ethnic Snacks accounted for 90% of the total number of packs used in the Indian Savory Snacks sector in 2012, driving significant demand for Flexible Packaging Bags/Sachets.

Ethnic Snacks and Potato Chips are expected to witness relatively strong growth rates between 2012 and 2017. These categories are growing in local currency terms, with fluctuations in exchange rates causing more variable growth in US dollar terms.

Private labels have gained popularity with Food retailers, who are gradually increasing the shelf space allotted to their own brands, at the expense of big brands.
