West Africa Food Services Market: Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2021-2026

Market Overview:

The West Africa food services market reached a value of US$ 5.3 Billion in 2020. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to reach a value of US$6.2 Billion by 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 on different end use sectors. These insights are included in the report as a major market contributor.

The West African region is quite diverse in terms of country size, population density, weather conditions, natural resources, etc. Countries in this region also differ significantly in terms of linguistic, historic and cultural dimensions. Despite major differences, a number of broad drivers and trends are catalysing the food services market in the region. These include strong population growth, rapid urbanisation and migration, large young population, rising incomes, changing lifestyles, broadening of food habits, etc. Catalyzed by these drivers, the food services market in the region is experiencing a transition. Some of the trends include an increasing demand for convenience, changing dietary habits, and a rising concern regarding the various aspects of product quality such as cleanliness and healthfulness. 

West Africa Foodservice Market Drivers/Constraints:

  • We expect the population of ECOWAS countries to increase from around 375 Million in 2018 to 436 Million by 2024, exhibiting a CAGR of 2.5% during the period. This is expected to continuously increase the food demand in the region.
  • West Africa has witnessed strong urban growth since 1950, with the urban population increasing from around 5 million in 1950 to over 165 million in 2018. With around 40%-45% of its total population living in cities, the region has strong potential for the food services industry.
  • West Africa represents one of the youngest populations in the world. With rising disposable incomes, this category can be regarded as a major driver of processed foods in the region. This population segment is adopting new lifestyles and is more open in experimenting with different flavors and food types.
  • The West African region, similar to most of the other developing world, has witnessed strong economic growth over the last three decades.  GDP per capita in the ECOWAS region has witnessed an average annual growth of around 4% over the last 15 years. This has resulted in rising disposable incomes and a strong growth in the middle-class population.
  • Urbanisation, migration, and wider exposure to digital media have led to a diversification of food habits, ranging from both traditional foods to the spread of Western-style fast foods, particularly in the urban regions. Nevertheless, catalyzed by increasing incomes and education, there is also a rising trend of health consciousness, generating a demand for healthier food options.
