Market Definition

Frozen-ready meals are usually cooked and packaged in a factory. This process includes heating the ingredients and packaging them into containers. Once the meal is prepared and placed in a freezer to cool down, they are popular among consumers because they provide a diverse menu and are convenient to prepare. Frozen meals may contain a meat entree, a vegetable, and starch-based food such as pasta and sauce. Some frozen meals are prepared specifically for vegetarians or individuals with certain dietary needs. The manufacture of such a product requires careful attention from the food processor.

Global Frozen Ready Meals Market Dynamics

Drivers

  • Rising preference for ready-to-eat organic foods

Ready-to-eat food has evolved as one of the most diversified sections of the global ready-meal business in recent years. A growth in convenience patterns and an increase in demand for organic meals have led to a growing need for organic frozen packaged meals. The organic frozen food and beverage sector is another stop for on-the-go consumers, offering anything from frozen sweets to appetizers and meals. Organic frozen ready meals are popular among consumers due to their lack of microbiological and fungal contamination. Also, the nutritional and health benefits offered by organic frozen ready meals have led to the growth in market demand. So to appeal to a larger consumer seeking health and flavor, frozen packaged food makers are also integrating nutritious benefits with taste leading to the growth of the global frozen ready meals market. Changing consumer preferences for plant-based, vegan products are paving the way for organic, convenient food products, resulting in increased demand for frozen ready meals in the global market.

  • The change in lifestyle and eating patterns of consumers

In the fast-paced on-the-go world, half of the population prefers convenience food which aids the consumers in saving time and effort in meal preparation. Owing to fast and busy life, the consumption pattern of consumers shifts from raw food to convenience foods. Also, the rapid urbanization and the changing lifestyle of the people are increasing the demand for frozen ready meals. Due to the constant evolution in the consumption pattern of consumers, convenient food has grown substantially globally because of the expanding consumer health consciousness and increasing urban lifestyles. Along with that, consumers are moving towards a fast-moving corporate setup that diversifies their eating patterns due to less time availability and more workload. Frozen-ready meals are easy to cook, readily available, affordable, and accessible, making them a smart solution to cater to the daily nutritional need of the consumers. Growing consumer health and wellness awareness is hastening the adoption of a healthy lifestyle, increasing acceptance of positive lifestyles, and consuming healthy frozen food, which has preserved nutrients, is moving the frozen ready meals market forward.

Frozen Ready Meals Market

Opportunities

  • An increasing number of initiatives taken by amino acid manufacturers

An increase in the number of initiatives taken by the manufacturers for frozen ready meals, such as product launches, expansion, raised funding, and others, will create a great opportunity for the growth of the global frozen ready meals market. The demand for frozen ready meals is increasing among consumers owing to the hectic schedule, increasing disposable income, and growing demand for ready-to-eat food products to save time for cooking. Consumers' increasing demand for frozen ready meals enables manufacturers to launch new products in the market, expand their manufacturing facility and raise investments to manufacture different frozen ready meals products for varied end-users.

Restraints/Challenges

  • Presence of fats in frozen ready meals

Trans fats, which have been linked to heart disease and blocked arteries, are found in packaged or frozen foods. This lipid raises bad cholesterol (LDL) while decreasing good cholesterol (HDL) (HDL). All of this adds to heart disease. Such foods are also heavy in sodium, which can boost cholesterol levels in the body. Also, Frozen foods are incredibly heavy in fat. These foods have an almost double fat-to-carbohydrate-to-protein ratio, which explains why they are high in calories restraining the demand for frozen food among health-conscious consumers.

Furthermore, frozen meals have a large salt level, so that they might raise blood pressure. Excess salt consumption also raises the risk of various medical disorders such as stroke and heart disease. As more people are becoming more aware of these effects of frozen food, the more they prefer fresh food over frozen food, hindering the market growth of frozen ready meals.

Thus, as mentioned above, the presence of excess and unhealthy fat in most frozen ready meals may act as a restraining factor for the global frozen ready meals market growth.

Post-COVID-19 Impact on Global Frozen Ready Meals Market

Post the pandemic, the demand for frozen food products has increased as there won't be any restrictions on movement; hence, the supply of products would be easy. The persistence of COVID-19 for a longer period has affected the supply chain as it got disrupted, and it became difficult to supply the food products to the consumers, initially increasing the demand for products. However, post-COVID, the demand for frozen food products has increased significantly owing to the longer shelf life for frozen food, increasing the demand for convenience food products.

Recent Developments

  • In April 2022, Nomad Foods launched open innovation portal that invites partners to share innovative solutions. The new portal launch helped the company increase the scalability of frozen mussels and other bivalve products
  • In July 2020, Tyson Foods introduced a new line of chicken products under the Tyson brand in the Globalan Foodservice industry, which includes restaurants, cafeterias, and caterers. This helped the company in increasing its revenue from the food service industry
