Ready to Eat (RTE) Food Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2021-2026

Market Overview:

The global ready to eat (RTE) food market reached a value of US$ 162 Billion in 2020. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to grow at a CAGR of 5.4% during 2021-2026. Keeping in mind the uncertainties of COVID-19, we are continuously tracking and evaluating the direct as well as the indirect influence of the pandemic. These insights are included in the report as a major market contributor.

Ready to eat (RTE) food products consist of various processed and packaged foods that can be consumed without any further preparation. The ingredients are washed, cooked, processed, frozen and packed in containers for direct consumption. Some of the common types of RTE foods include meat products, shelf-stable foods, powder mixes, baked goods, desserts, cheese and dairy products. These products are enriched with various extracts, acids, flavors, sweeteners, antioxidants and preservatives. They offer immense convenience to the consumer while assisting in reducing the meal preparation time and providing longer shelf-life of the products, cost-efficiency and minimal spoilage and wastage.

The growing food and beverage industry, along with rapid urbanization, is one of the key factors driving the growth of the market. Furthermore, the increasing working population and improving consumer lifestyles have enhanced the consumption of RTE food products across the globe. Owing to hectic schedules, there is widespread adoption of on-the-go convenience food products that require minimal time and ingredients to prepare. Additionally, the growing number of quick-service restaurants (QSRs) and the emerging café culture, coupled with the increasing consumer expenditure capacities, are driving the demand for RTE food products. Manufacturers are launching innovative flavored variants that are rich in functional ingredients to cater to the nutritional requirements, which is also contributing to their widespread preference among consumers. Other factors, including the development of the online retailing networks and aggressive promotional activities by the vendors, are projected to drive the market further.
