Global Fast Food Market to Reach US$ 1,105 Billion by 2027, Fostered by Expanding Food and Beverage Industry

Published on Nov 11, 2022

IMARC Group's latest report, titled "Fast Food Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity, and Forecast 2022-2027", finds that the global fast food market size reached US$ 803 Billion in 2021. Fast food refers to food items that are easy to prepare and commonly made using pre-cooked ingredients. They facilitate quick preparation and preservation of food. They are generally manufactured in bulk in advance and then heated and packaged for takeaway or dine-in. Some of the most commonly available fast-food variants include noodles, pizza, fries, sandwiches, and burgers. They act as a quicker and more convenient alternative to prepared meals. As a result, fast food is gaining immense traction among consumers and is widely served in quick service restaurants (QSR), hotels, and street vendor shops across the globe. 

We are regularly tracking the direct effect of COVID-19 on the market, along with the indirect influence of associated industries. These observations will be integrated into the report. 

Global Fast Food Market Trends:

The rising adoption of franchise business models by restaurant chains and the rapid expansion in the food and beverage industry represents the primary factors driving the market growth. Moreover, the emergence of café culture and the increasing establishment of fast food restaurants, food trucks, and other QSRs are positively influencing the market growth. Besides this, the launch of numerous innovative and exotic recipes by popular fast-food restaurants using natural, organic, and plant-based ingredients has accelerated the product adoption rate. Additionally, the escalating demand for fast food due to improving consumer lifestyles, busy schedules, and the rising working population is another major growth-inducing factor. Apart from this, the surging popularity of food ordering apps and the advent of home delivery models offering doorstep delivery, fast and easy ordering, and discount offers are contributing to the market growth. Furthermore, the emergence of touchscreen kiosks, kitchen display screens, and digital sales terminals and the modernization of the food retail industry have catalyzed market growth. Other factors, including an increasing number of hotels and restaurants, rising internet penetration, escalating demand for ready-to-eat (RTE) foods, and inflating consumer disposable incomes, are also providing a positive thrust to the market growth. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market value to reach US$ 1,105 Billion by 2027, growing at a CAGR of 5.4% during 2022-2027.
