According to the recent report by IMARC Group, titled “Peanut Butter Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2021-2026,” the global peanut butter market size reached around US$ 3.40 Billion in 2020. Peanut butter refers to a thick spread that is produced by dry roasted peanuts. It is high in proteins and low in calories in comparison to most other spreads. Peanut butter has gained prominence in several countries as it is rich in fiber and micronutrients, like vitamin E, zinc, potassium, and magnesium. The consumption of peanut butter is associated with several health benefits like weight loss, less risk of diabetes and cancer, a healthy heart, and good cholesterol maintenance. As a result, it is often used in salads, cakes, brownies, sandwiches, frostings, and rolls, as well as a substitute for milk butter.
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 Peanut Butter Market Trends:
One of the major factors driving the market growth is the rising health awareness that has led to the incorporation of plant-based proteins by the masses in their daily diets. This, along with inflating income levels, has increased the demand for premium peanut butter, thereby positively impacting the market growth. Besides this, several brands are employing innovative marketing campaigns to expand their consumer base. For instance, Jif, an American brand, rolled out a limited-edition peanut butter variant with GIF graphics on the jar to settle the debate over its pronunciation. Similar to Hormel Foods ‘Skippy’ ad campaign, Jif’s roll-out played a significant role in the uptake of peanut butter. Furthermore, the outbreak of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) led to lockdowns for months in most countries worldwide. This has led to a rise in the sales of packaged food items with a longer shelf life, such as peanut butter. On account of these factors, the market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.40% during the forecast period (2021-2026).
