Impulse ice-creams are water-based, all dairy, ready for instant consumption ice-lollies that include chocolate-coated ice-creams, ice cream tubes, ice-cream sandwiches, and others. Impulse ice-cream is designed for immediate consumption and is mainly sold under the single-service product market across different economies. The impulse ice-cream market is expected to grow at a decent pace during the forecast period due to the high demand for exotic indulgences, such as ice-creams across the globe. The increasing number of manufacturers aiming for producing impulse ice-cream products cost-efficiently and meeting the demand of consumers is one of the crucial factors that is expected to positively drive the global impulse ice-cream market during the forecast period (2019-2026). Furthermore, the growth of the impulse ice-cream industry is also driven by the availability of various ice-cream flavors and increasing consumer spending on quality indulgence edibles.

Major players operating in the global impulse ice-cream market are focusing on launching innovative, fresh, healthy, and affordable products for maintaining their market prominence in the worldwide market. Companies are also concentrating on the sustainable and convenient packaging of the product to attract consumers. Unilever Group, General Mills, and Nestle S.A. are some of the leading companies operating in the global impulse ice-cream market.

Concerns associated with low-shelf life and storage of Impulse Ice Cream can hinder the market growth.

The availability of fixed shelves in the supermarkets for impulse ice cream products and other indulgence attracts consumer attention to purchase.
