EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

The ready meals market in Europe was equal to 36.73 billion USD (calculated in retail prices) in 2014. Until 2024, the ready meals market in Europe is forecast to reach 50.83 billion USD (in retail prices), thus increasing at a CAGR of 2.39% per annum for the period 2019-2024. This is a decrease, compared to the growth of about 4.41% per year, registered in 2014-2018.

The average consumption per capita in value terms reached 56.71 USD per capita (in retail prices) in 2014. In the next five years, it grew at a CAGR of 3.11% per annum.

In the medium term (by 2024), the indicator is forecast to slow down its growth and increase at a CAGR of 2.01% per annum.


People across the world have experienced fundamental shifts in their diets, partially propelled by the food environment and technology that is available and with them contemporary cooking skills have also changed. Sociodemographic factors have affected cooking skills, which correlated negatively with convenience food consumption frequency. Busy lifestyles are underlying for the development of people’s cooking skills. Therefore, the lack of cooking knowledge to prepare healthy meals, especially among younger generations, is likely to lead to increased reliance on ready meals and other convenience food in the upcoming years. Today, grocery stores and food manufacturers are entering the area of convenience food by offering both healthier, fresher and quick and efficient solutions in the form of meal kits, ready meals, culinary aids and more. At the same time, consumers are willing to pay them the extra money for already washed and cut up vegetables, which would save them time. Because most people, now, are super busy, the need for quality tasting healthy food that feels somewhat homemade is anticipated to drive the growth of prepared meals. Furthermore, the cost savings of cooking at home compared to eating ready meals are not significant, which is additional point to consider.
When it comes to free-from and organic ready meals, they are projected to outperform overall ready meals sales in most of the developed regions. Producers of organic ready meals are likely to reach wider distribution. At the same time, retailers are also entering the organic area by developing their own private label ranges. In addition, the global meat consumption is expected to be seriously curbed in the forecast period, mainly due to the eating habits of younger generations, which generally consume less meat than the older ones. Therefore, the industry is anticipated to witness the expansion of new ranges targeting vegetarians.
