Market Insights

The global canned food market is expected to reach USD 118 billion by 2023, at a CAGR of 3.8%, during the forecast period (2018-2023). The growing trend in the canned food market is innovations in packaging. With increase in demand for chemical-free canned foods, manufacturers are focusing on innovations in packaging. Many brands of canned food products have started offering food in BPA-free containers.

The growing trend for organic canned fruits and vegetables and focus on social media marketing and promotions further adds to the revenue generating factors in the global canned food market.

Market Dynamics

Canned food requires less preparation time and are considered convenient to use, which has led to its popularity in the global market. The demand for sealed and tamper-proof steel container food is high, as they protect food from harmful bacteria. Also, due to hectic and busy lifestyles of consumers, canned food is expected to gain more importance. The process of canning helps in preserving the quality of food products and preventing food spoilage, which subsequently increases their shelf life.

However, major restraining factors affecting the global canned food packaging market are availability of alternative packaging solutions, high cost of metals, introduction of polyethylene terephthalate, and high-density polyethylene materials. Also, canned foods are subject to the risk of BPA, which is hazardous to health.

Factors, such as, innovations in packaging, high investment in R&D, and increasing demand in the Asia-Pacific region, reflect the growth opportunities for the global canned food market.

Market Segmentation

The global canned food market is segmented by type, distribution channel, and region. The fish & seafood segment is reported to be the fastest growing segment, given the high demand and sustainably sourced products. During 2015, the sale of canned food through supermarkets and hypermarkets was the most significant, due to the availability of a vast array of products, at a discounted price. Supermarkets and hypermarkets are also the ideal venues for vendors to launch their products.

The market is currently dominated by Europe, followed by North America. The evolving and changing food habits, along with increasing urbanization is driving the growth of the canned fruit products in countries, like India and China.
