Primary Boosters and Deterrents

The COVID-19 outbreak has facilitated the transition to e-commerce, as online shopping has garnered a lot of traction among consumers. This factor has favored the RTE Popcorn Market Analysis to a large extent. Surging consumption of ready-to-eat meals on account of the high prevalence of hectic lifestyles of the students, working professionals, and college grads contributes significantly to the market growth. The spike in the demand for minimally processed and additive-free foods that have extended shelf life such as ready to eat popcorn further benefits the global industry.

Ready to eat popcorns are relatively lower priced compared to the alternatives available in the market, given the fact that they are precooked. Their high availability in the market all year round adds to the market value as well, while media as well as print advertisements also boost the brand awareness among the consumers. Reputed industry participants frequently introduce new flavors to accommodate the constantly changing preferences and tastes of the consumers, which also helps strengthen their worldwide position.

To cite an instance, in June 2021, Opopop, a fast-emerging Microwave popcorn startup, has managed to raise USD 5 million, ahead of its latest product launch. The brand is about to launch a direct-to-consumer ready to eat popcorn, Flavor Wrapped Popcorn Kernels, based on a technology that flavor coats every kernel right before popping. These popcorns will be sold in six new flavors, including Fancy Butter, Salted Umami, Maui Heat, Chedapeno, Vanilla Cake Pop, and Cinnalicious.

Segmental Analysis

Depending on product type, sweet RTE popcorn as well as savory RTE popcorn are the top segments. Savory RTE popcorn segment forms the biggest share in the global market and should remain at the top all through the analysis timeframe.

Key applications of RTE popcorn are commercial and household. Household is the leading segment and will continue to thrive all through the conjectured period. Thanks to the several health advantages of RTE popcorns, families are increasingly opting for them to be consumed as breakfast.

Distribution channels covered in the research study include non-store and store-based. A large percentage of the total sales is carried out by the store-based retailers. As a result, the segment, which is dissected into convenience stores, and supermarkets & hypermarkets, will rule the worldwide market in the coming years.
