Europe Snack Pellets Market Dynamics
- Increasing replacement of meals with healthy snacks
A snack is generally defined as any food eaten between main meals. Many people snack at least once during the course of a day, and there are several reasons why consumers prefer snacking as they experience a dip in energy levels that a small bite can remedy. Also, they look forward to experiencing the taste of certain snack foods. Another important reason is the busy lifestyle of consumers that is enabling them to switch to snacks for at least one meal replacement. People prefer healthy snack pellets as they are full of nutrients and help the hunger of the consumers.
Thus, the demand for snack pellets in the market is anticipated to grow due to the increasing working population, growing per capita disposable income, rising per capita expenditure on convenience food, changing taste preferences of people, and the change in lifestyle among affluent consumers.
- Availability of various flavors in chips and crackers
Increasing demand for flavorful chips and crackers among consumers coupled with rising demand for convenient food products is one of the major reasons for the high demand for savory snacks such as chips, and crackers, among others. Thus, manufacturers fulfill these demands of consumers by consistently launching new flavors of potato-based, cereal-based chips and crackers. In addition, manufacturers use it as a marketing strategy and launch new products in the market. The aforementioned factor will boost the demand for the market.
- The emergence of healthy snack pellets
Healthy snacking is no longer a short-lived trend as it has become essential for consumers owing to increased health awareness. To meet the strong consumer expectations and demands, manufacturers are developing healthy snack pellets with an improved nutritional profile. Furthermore, consumers are concerned about the broad spectrum of health concerns, which are related to immunity and various diseases. Thus, consumers are opting for organic and cereal-based food to maintain their health. Thus, snack pellet manufacturers are launching organic and healthy snack pellets to attract consumers.
- Fluctuating prices of raw materials
As the price of raw materials increases, it affects the whole supply chain from the manufacturers-distribution channel-marketing company and mostly the consumers with low income. If raw material prices increase, the prices of the finished product will also increase. This is the major restraining factor for the snack pellets market. The raw material needed for snack pellets are potatoes, corn, rice, tapioca, multigrain, and others. Increasing prices of these raw materials are expected to hinder the growth of the snack pellets market as snack pellets manufacturers find it difficult to buy raw materials such as potatoes, rice, tapioca, and others amid the fluctuating prices.
