Global Tomato Processing Market Trends:
The global market is primarily driven by significant growth in the food and beverage sector. Processed tomato products are characterized by a relatively longer shelf life, ease of usage and storage. As a result, they are widely gaining preference across the food industry, especially in hotels, restaurants and fast-food joints. Rapid globalization, in confluence with the westernization of food patterns, is acting as another major growth-inducing factor. Moreover, there has been a growing demand for processed foods on account of shifting dietary preferences, rapid urbanization and increasing per capita income levels. Processed tomatoes, especially ketchup and dehydrated tomatoes, form an essential ingredient in the preparation of numerous ready-to-eat food products. This, along with the continual development of unique packaging formats to ensure safe distribution and improved shelf life of the products, is contributing to the market growth. For instance, manufacturers are employing multi-layer-flexible plastic bags or tetra packs to preserve the freshness and nutritional contents of the product for an extended period. On account of the aforementioned factors, the market is expected to grow at a CAGR of
3.75% during 2023-2028.
