MENA Extruded Snack Food Market Driven by Growing Demand for Ready-to-Eat Snacks

January 17, 2019

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled “MENA Extruded Snack Food Market: Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2022-2027”, the MENA extruded snack food market reached a value of US$ 2.4 Billion in 2021. Extrusion is a process which is popularly used for producing snacks including pasta, macaroni, puffed snacks, cereals, cookies and dough. Extruded snack foods are crispy, crunchy and puffy snacks which are mostly prepared from starch or cereal flour. In order to enhance their taste and nutritional characteristics, cereals, oats, puffed rice and even dried or moist vegetables are added to these snack foods. Over the years, extruded snack foods have gained immense popularity among consumers in the MENA region as these products are affordable, tasty, healthy and easy-to-make.

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.

MENA Extruded Snack Food Market Trends:

The long working hours and adoption of modern lifestyles have reduced the elaborate lunch meals to desk snacks. This shift has led to an increase in the demand for ready-to-eat food products like extruded snack foods which can be consumed without any additional preparations. In line with this, the manufacturers are now offering snacks in different pack sizes, such as single-serve, mini packs and family packs. It also enhances their portability as these packs are tearable and the snacks packed in them can be consumed easily. Moreover, consumers in the MENA region have become more conscious about their health and fitness due to which the companies are launching a diverse range of healthier extruded snacks, such as gluten-free, GMO-free, organic and vegan variants and snack items with reduced sugar and fats. As a result, the market is projected to reach a value of US$ 3.1 Billion by 2027, exhibiting a CAGR of 4.38% during 2022-2027.
