The distribution channel is segmented into hypermarkets, supermarkets, convenience stores, departmental stores, specialty stores and online purchases.
The global savory snacks market is dominated by North America with 27% of total market share followed by Europe, Asia Pacific with 23%, South America and Africa. In North America, the USA is the largest consumer of savory snacks. Europe is the second largest consumer of savory snacks with the U.K., France, Germany, Spain and Italy being the major consumers. China and India are not only the largest consumer market in the Asia-Pacific region but are also the fastest growing market for savory snacks globally. These countries are supported by their large population, rapid urbanization, and increasing disposable income.
There is high competition in the global savory snacks market as the market is highly fragmented. The top ten global players have only 16% share of the overall savory snacks market. The local and regional snacks manufacturers cater to area-specific taste, which is very difficult for global players to capture. The entry for new players is easy because of the large number of alternatives in the same snacks category, low customer loyalty and high shifting habits in the market. Product launches of innovative flavors, organic and gluten-free products and mergers and acquisitions with local players have been the major business strategies for market growth.
