Opportunities in the North American Prepared Meals Sector: Analysis of Opportunities Offered by Countries in the Region

Summary

Global Prepared Meals sector was valued at US$83.4 Billion in 2016 and is forecasted to record a CAGR of 3.5% during 2016-2021 to reach US$99.1 Billion by 2021. Western Europe, with a value share of 39.5%, represents the largest regional market, while North America is the second largest market, accounting for a 27.7% share, and is forecasted to record a CAGR growth of 2.1% during 2016-2021. The growth and high contribution can be attributed to the US and Canada with factors including high disposable incomes and time-scarcity among the urban population resulting in increased consumer interest in purchasing Prepared Meals.

North America is the second largest Prepared Meals market in the world, accounting for US$23,088.2 Million in 2016, and is forecasted to grow at a CAGR of 2.1% to reach US$25,599.4 Million in 2021. Ready Meals is the largest market, accounting for US$15,621.5 Million (67.7% of the overall Prepared Meals sector) in 2016, and is expected to reach US$17,251.6 Million in 2021, growing at a CAGR 2.0%. At a country level, the US alone accounts for 84% of this market, followed by Canada and Mexico. This high demand for Ready Meals in North America is due to the fact that they require near zero preparation time and suit the ever increasing hectic lifestyles of consumers in these countries, especially the US and Canada. This is followed by Pizza and Meal Kits, which are forecast to witness a CAGR of 2.3% during 2016-2021.

In the North American Prepared Meals market, there is a huge disparity in terms of opportunities among the top countries: The US is the largest contributor in terms of market value as of 2016, while Mexico will witness the highest CAGR of 3.6% during 2016-2021, due to the growth over low base values. With an increasing middle-class population and growing time-scarcity among working individuals in Mexico, Prepared Meals will anticipate higher demand in the coming years. Moreover, the growing retail penetration in mid-sized cities and rural areas in Mexico is expected to further fuel this growth.

North American Health & Wellness market stood at US$5,142.7 Million (22.3% of the overall Prepared Meals market) in 2016. A large aging population (especially in the US) and rising awareness of diet-related issues such as obesity, diabetes, and cholesterol, among others (across demographics), is driving the growth of Health & Wellness products in North America. Rising economic standards drive consumers to choose better-for-health variants over regular/standard varieties, while growing concerns over the use of artificial ingredients is driving the demand for products that claim to be ’free from’ and ’all natural’.

Hypermarkets & Supermarkets is the most popular distribution channel for Prepared Meals in the North American region, accounting for 74.8% of the overall sales, followed by Convenience Stores with a 14.7% share. This is due to the high penetration of large supermarket chains in the US and Canada and the fact that Hypermarkets & Supermarkets offer a large variety of products in terms of flavors, cuisines, and pack sizes. However, Convenience Stores account for 51.5% of overall sales in Mexico, as smaller retail formats are more prevalent in the country.
