Popcorn Market by Type (Microwave Popcorn and Ready-to-eat Popcorn) and End User (Household and Commercial) - Global Opportunity Analysis and Industry Forecast, 2017-2023

The global popcorn market was valued at $9,060 million in 2016 and is projected to reach $15,098 million by 2023, registering a CAGR of 7.6% from 2017 to 2023. Popcorn is a type of maize or corn kernel, which expands and puffs up when heated. It is prepared by heating corn kernel which turns the water into steam, builds pressure inside the kernel, and convert it into popcorn. Popcorn is a snacking choice almost in all countries and regions. Two types of popcorn are available commercially-ready-to-eat and microwave popcorn. These are mainly used as snack at homes as well as in the movie theatres, fairs, and circus. Butter, cheese, and caramel are the traditional flavors available in the market. Whereas, new flavors such as jalapeno, sea salt, cracked pepper, bacon, and salted caramel are introduced recently in market.

According to American Dental Association, popcorn is a sugar free, fat-free snack containing low calories thus helps in weight loss. In addition, popcorn is rich in nutrients such as proteins, antioxidants, fibers, polyphenolic compounds, and vitamin B complex; and thus comes with a lot of health benefits. It is widely consumed as healthy snack and considered to be a better choice for breakfast. This contributes to the growth of the popcorn market. The rise in disposable income and changes in lifestyles have made consumers spend more on entertainment such as watching movies in single theaters, multiplex theaters, and sports events, which further propels the growth of the popcorn market. Increase in number of theatres and multiplexes in emerging economies such as India and China are still at its initial phase as compared to other developed countries, which provide great opportunities for the growth of the popcorn market in recent years in this region.

Excessive amounts of oil, preservatives, and fats are added to the popcorn to make them microwavable. Snack vendors are considering these concerns and focus on improving their product, by introducing variety of healthy snacks in the market. This may change perception and buying preferences of the consumer for other snacks such as nuts, chips, bites, pretzels, yogurt, and others over popcorn, which are projected to restrain the growth of the market.
