Global popcorn market overview

From merely being consumed as a leisure, popcorns are now widely consumed as a healthy snack food, owing to the robust health benefits associated with the snack. Popcorns are rich in nutrients such as proteins, antioxidants, fibers, polyphenolic compounds, and vitamin B complex. This market research analysis identifies the growing consumer awareness of the health benefits of consuming popcorn as one of the key growth factors for the global popcorn market.The growing health consciousness among the people is also compelling them to consume food items that are gluten-free. Also, the additional benefits affiliated with popcorns such as keeping the entire digestive system healthy, reducing cholesterol levels, and regulating blood sugar, will also influence the growth of the market over the years. Market research analysts at Technavio predict that the global popcorn market will grow steadily over the next four years and post a CAGR of almost 8% by 2021.

Global popcorn market trends

The availability of organic and premium gourmet popcorn varieties will be one of the major trends that will gain traction in the popcorn market during the next four years.

Market segmentation by product and analysis of the popcorn market

  • Microwave
  • Ready-to-eat (RTE)
  • Kernel

During 2016, the microwave popcorn segment dominated the popcorn market. However, the segment will witness a gradual decline in its market shares during the next four years. The decline in the market share can be attributed to factors such as busy and sedentary lifestyles of the consumers, where the consumers prefer the need for convenient food such as RTE popcorn. However, to promote the growth of the segment, the vendors in the market are introducing innovations in packaging and are also introducing exotic flavors.

  • Americas
  • APAC
  • EMEA

The Americas accounted for the major shares of the popcorn market during 2016 and will continue to retain its dominant position during the forecast period.
