The global frozen fruits and vegetables market reached a value of US$ 24.6 Billion in 2020. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the global frozen fruits and vegetables market to exhibit moderate growth during 2021-2026. Frozen fruits and vegetables are rapidly gaining traction among consumers as they offer a wide range of advantages over the fresh produce. The technique employed in freezing fruits and vegetables assists in retaining the color, flavor and nutritive value of these products. It slows down the decomposition by turning the residual moisture into ice, which prevents the growth of bacteria. Frozen fruits and vegetables are also immune to spoilage that occurs on account of vigorous transportation and exposure to light, heat and dust. They offer numerous benefits which include low cost, easy preparation and availability during the off-season.
Due to long working hours, rising health consciousness and the increasing prevalence of lifestyle diseases, consumers are shifting to frozen fruits and vegetables as they do not need to be washed, peeled or chopped. Additionally, they help in minimizing the overall cooking time without affecting the nutritional intake. In line with this, manufacturers are launching unique product variants, incorporating herbs and spices from local produce, to widen their portfolio and attract a large consumer base. Further, inflating income levels of the middle-class population, especially in the Asian countries, is impelling the market growth. Moreover, consumers currently prefer to shop online and pay through their credit/debit cards to eliminate geographical limitations. This, in confluence with the burgeoning e-commerce industry, is providing a thrust to the market growth.
