World Snacking Market Trends & Developments Examined in Topical Canadean Report Published at

19 Nov 2014 • by Natalie Aster

LONDON – Dairy snacks are the largest category within the snacking sector, popular around the word for providing a nutritious and healthy option. Their use will keep on rising as they satisfy consumers’ need for indulgence, besides offering age-specific nutritional value.

The emerging APAC region offers a huge opportunity for marketers. Snacks consumption per capita is projected to nearly double in terms of volume through to 2017. Marketers, though, should be cautious that the products they introduce into the emerging region are specifically tailoured to satisfy the varying needs and appetites of Asia’s population. Western Europe is also abounding in lucrative opportunities, with snacking making up a booming part of people’s everyday lifestyles. Despite Western Europeans comprising only 8.5% of the world’s population, they consume more than 30% of snacks worldwide. This leaves a big market, plenty of exiting opportunities for intensifying competition and launches of innovative products.

Surging obesity related health problems mean certain consumers are tending to limit, or even cease, snacking. Manufacturers are required to focus on moderation and offer smaller, individually-sized portions of their snacking products.
