Potato chips are a popular snack consumed globally. They are prepared by thinly slicing potatoes and then seasoning and frying the sliced pieces until they become crisp. During the frying process, the sugar in potatoes reacts with amino acids, resulting in the yellowish-brown color of the chips. They are prepared using various added ingredients, such as salt, sugar, oil, spices, cheese, colorants, seasonings, and flavoring agents. They are further processed and stored to prevent microbial spoilage, chemical and enzymatic reactions, and moisture or vapor migration. Their taste, texture, and color remain unchanged for a long period of time. They are commonly packaged in air-tight plastic bags, which significantly extended their shelf life. They are a highly convenient food option for individuals leading busy lifestyles as they reduce meal preparation time and can be enjoyed as a quick snack or as part of a meal.
Rapid expansion in the organized retail sector represents the primary factor driving the market growth. Moreover, several key players are introducing value-added products, including potato chips with reduced fat and calorie content and novel variants fortified with healthy ingredients and lower cholesterol that is healthier than traditional potato chips due to rising health concerns among consumers, thereby positively influencing the market growth. Additionally, the escalating demand for gluten-free chips, non-GMO verified, and made with sea salt, natural colors, and flavors represents another major growth-inducing factor. Besides this, the increasing number of organized retail stores has augmented product demand. Furthermore, rising investments in research and development (R&D) activities by leading manufacturers to introduce more diverse products in the market to strengthen their product portfolios and gain competitive advantage is contributing to the market growth. In addition, the introduction of frozen variants of potato chips has accelerated the product adoption rate. Apart from this, the rising sales of convenient snack foods, especially potato chips, owing to changing dietary habits, inflating consumer disposable incomes, and busy lifestyles of working professionals who prefer quick snacks has catalyzed the market growth. Along with this, the surging adoption of innovative marketing strategies by vendors and continuous improvements in the e-commerce sector are fueling the market growth. Other factors, including the rising westernization of food consumption patterns, increasing use of automation in the production process, expanding middle-class population, and rapid urbanization, are also anticipated to drive the market further.
