Opportunities in the Western Europe Prepared Meals Sector: Analysis of Opportunities Offered by High Growth Economies

Summary

Global Prepared Meals sector was valued at US$83.4 Billion in 2016 and is forecasted to record a CAGR of 3.5% during 2016-2021 to reach US$99.1 Billion by 2021. Western Europe has the highest value share of the global Prepared Meals sector, at 39.5% in 2016, and is forecasted to grow by a CAGR of 2.2%, in value terms, from US$32.9 Billion in 2016 to US$36.6 Billion by 2021. The highly urbanized and busy lives of consumers in developed nations, such as the UK, France, and Germany, are driving high Prepared Meals consumption rates in the region. However, it is forecasted to witness a low CAGR (both in value and volume terms) compared to other global regions due to the saturated market landscape and increasing preference for fresh foods among health conscious consumers.

Western Europe is highly industrialized and developed with consumers tending to have high levels of disposable income and busier lifestyles, and therefore accounts for the highest consumption of Prepared Meals in the world. Germany, France, and the UK had a 70% share of total regional consumption in 2016; however, they offer a low potential for growth due to the saturated state of the market in these countries. As such, countries such as Italy, the Netherlands, Austria, and Ireland, which are less developed, offer higher growth potential for Prepared Meals in Western Europe because the market is less saturated.

West European Prepared Meals sector is fragmented with the top five brands - Frosta, Ristorante, Erasco, Iglo, and Maggi - accounting for a 12.8% share of the sector in 2016. Private labels accounted for a 27.8% share of the sector in 2016, indicating the demand for low cost variants. Furthermore, the fragmented and saturated market scenario demands constant innovation to succeed in the region.

Health & Wellness market in the West European Prepared Meals sector stood at US$1,157.8 Million in 2016, accounting for 3.5% of the overall sector in the region. A large aging population and rising awareness about diet related illnesses, such as obesity and diabetes, is driving H&W Prepared Meals sales, particularly in the UK, Finland, and Italy. Therefore, Prepared Meals with H&W attributes, such as gluten-free, low calorie, and fresh & natural ingredients, are set to gain market share in the region and are forecast to grow at a CAGR of 2.7% to reach US$1,322.1 Million in 2021.

Globally, Hypermarkets & Supermarkets was the main distribution channel for Prepared Meals, accounting for 67.4% of the market, followed by Convenience Stores at 20%. This is mirrored in Western Europe, where Hypermarkets & Supermarkets led sales with 65% market share. The Netherlands has led the region at a country-level with 68.1% Hypermarkets & Supermarkets channel share.
