Irregular Growth Observed due to Disrupted Supply Chains & Rising Demand During Pandemic

The COVID-19 pandemic affected the market at an irregular rate. The market witnessed negative growth during the initial stages of the pandemic owing to supply chain disruptions and volatility in raw material pricing. Some regions registered positive growth during the forecast period as consumers were instructed to work from home to curb the spread of the virus. People were further asked to stock up on essential commodities’ which further led to a surge in market volume.

Rising popularity within various cuisines and innovations in culinary aspects will further fuel the growth of the market during the forecast period. The stronger demand was negated by delays in product processing, manufacturing, and demand-supply instability. The rising inclination of home cook food towards maintaining standard health and wellness will increase the footprint of the market.
