Demand for Meals Kits to Experience an Upwards Trend Due to the Rising Rate of Working Females
The Global Meal Kit Market size was valued at around USD 16.2 billion in 2023 and is estimated to grow at a CAGR of about 18.21% during the forecast period, i.e., 2024-30, cites MarkNtel Advisors in the recent research report. The surge in cooking as a hobby among educated individuals is poised to propel growth in the meal kit industry. With time constraints, these individuals are turning to meal kits instead of restaurant-prepared meals, simplifying their vegetable shopping process. Moreover, the expanding female workforce is expected to drive market expansion as both partners in households face limited time for cooking and grocery shopping.
Meal kits streamline the cooking process, sparing consumers the need to plan and shop for groceries, thereby saving precious time during meal prep. They promote culinary exploration by providing straightforward recipes and cooking advice in pre-packaged boxes with precisely measured ingredients. Providers prioritize freshness and portion sizes, catering to both individuals and busy families seeking convenient, freshly prepared meals.
Furthermore, the surge in demand for plant-based foods, driven by a growing vegan population and increased awareness of animal welfare concerns, is evident. Additionally, specialized meal kit services are emerging to cater to various dietary needs and preferences. Consumers today prioritize nutritious diets, viewing meal kits as healthier alternatives to ready-to-eat meals due to their use of fresh ingredients without additives or preservatives, aligning with health-conscious choices.
Moreover, the heightened environmental consciousness among consumers has led meal kit companies to adopt sustainable practices. These practices involve using recycled or compostable packaging, sourcing ingredients sustainably, and minimizing food waste, contributing to market growth without compromising environmental concerns, further states the research report, “Global Meal Kit Market Analysis, 2024.”
