Presentation Topic: The State of Snacking: Finding an Identity in a Rapidly-Changing World
Presentation Description: In the context of a relatively stagnant US packaged food market, savoury snacks continue to show steady growth. While consumers continue to snack more often, savoury snacks have outperformed other snack offerings like confectionery, ice cream or baked goods. Despite this overall market growth, however, a series of distinct trends are pulling the savoury snack market in different directions. In this environment, savoury snack manufacturers must identify their own niche in order to succeed.
This presentation will discuss the key demographic and lifestyle factors driving growth in various segments of the US savoury snack market, as well as key sources of competition. It will also provide suggestions for the future using case studies and Euromonitor’s market projections through 2019.
Presentation Time: Sunday, March 29, 3:30 pm
