Global Food Service Market to Reach US$ 3,629 Billion by 2027, Bolstered by Growing Demand for Convenience Foods

Published on Jan 11, 2022

The latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Food Service Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity, and Forecast 2022-2027,” finds that the global food service market size reached US$ 2,750 Billion in 2021. Food service refers to the business of providing food and beverages for home delivery or immediate consumption in residences, offices, schools, hospitals, cafes, restaurants, and fast-food joints. Foodservice outlets are bifurcated into two sectors. Commercial establishments include fast-food restaurants, catering, nightclubs, and recreational outlets. On the other hand, non-commercial outlets include food operations within the premises of an organization, such as hospitals, schools, and military bases. The food is usually assembled, prepared, and served in the same premises or prepared in a centralized kitchen and then transported to different locations.

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 Food Service Market Trends:

The market is primarily driven by the growing demand for nutritious and hygienic convenience food items. This can be attributed to the hectic working schedules and changing dietary preferences of the working professionals. In addition, commercial restaurants and cafés have emerged as convenient places for families, teenagers, and young professionals to socialize and relax, which represents another growth-inducing factor. Besides this, the proliferation of quick-service restaurants (QSRs) and online food delivery portals has made pre-made and packaged food more accessible and affordable. This, coupled with the innovations in packaging and the introduction of low-fat beverages, and gluten-free products, is contributing to the market growth. Furthermore, the increasing number of working women, reduced practice of preparing home-cooked meals, and increasing disposable incomes are also creating a positive market outlook across the globe. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to reach a value of US$ 3,629 Billion by 2027, expanding at a CAGR of 3.85% during the forecast period (2022-2027).
