Region :Global | Report ID: FBI106067 | Status : Ongoing



The frozen meals market is witnessing significant traction in the global marketplace due to the shifting preference of consumers towards convenient and ready-to-eat food products. As frozen meals are stored, the nutritional content in the food, such as carbohydrate, protein, and fat content, does not undergo major changes compared to fresh meals.

The rising working-class population coupled with the increasing number of college graduates looking for convenient and ready-to-eat meals have increased the consumer's dependence on prepacked meals that are frozen and easily available. Consumer preferences in recent years have also aligned towards products that have higher shelf life such as frozen meals. These are some key factors that are responsible for contributing to the growth of the frozen meals market globally. 

The increasing consumer inclination towards pre-packaged and ready-to-eat food due to convenience acts as one of the major influences towards the increasing demand for frozen meals and acts as a major factor expected to boost the demand of the global frozen meals market.

Lack of cold chain logistics is one of the vital requirements for storing meals and thus acts as one of the major restraining factors that is expected to affect the growth of the target market negatively.
