Key Market Driver

The growing focus on expanding production capabilities for potato processing is notably driving the market growth. The global market is experiencing significant growth due to increasing consumer demand for convenient, on-the-go snacks in both developed and tropical countries.

The companies are expanding their production capabilities to meet this demand, with a focus on frozen potatoes for use in restaurants, hotel chains, retail sectors, and quickservice restaurants. Technologically advanced potato-producing countries are leading this trend, with mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures, and geographical expansions driving growth. 

Furthermore, these products are also finding a place in the wellness environment, with applications in dietary supplements, prepared meals, and convenience foods. Rapid urbanization and changing food preferences are contributing to the growth of the market, with a focus on vegetarian and vegan food items.

Health concerns, such as hypertension, cardiovascular disease, cancer, stroke, and obesity, are driving demand for transfat-free cooking oils. Key players in the market include Kraft Heinz and NotCo. Therefore, these factors are expected to aid in the growth of the market.

Significant Market Trend

The growing prominence of online shopping is a major trend in the market. The processed potatoes market has experienced substantial growth in the last decade due to the proliferation of e-commerce. This trend allows consumers in developed economies and tropical countries alike to access a diverse range of potato products through online platforms.

Potato processing includes frozen potatoes, which are popular in restaurants, hotel chains, and retail sectors. Potato-producing countries are adopting technologically advanced farming methodologies and storage and transportation solutions to cater to the increasing demand for processed potatoes. Health concerns, such as hypertension, cardiovascular disease, cancer, stroke, and obesity, have led to a shift towards vegetarian, vegan food items, and dietary supplements. 

Quickservice restaurants and prepared meals, including convenience foods, have become increasingly popular, especially among young people and those living in rapidly urbanizing areas. Mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures, and geographical expansions by companies like Kraft Heinz and NotCo are driving innovation in the processed potatoes market. Processed potato products, including potato chips and French fries, come in various flavors, with Asian flavors gaining popularity.

These foods are often high in transfats and cooking oil, which can contribute to health issues. However, efforts are being made to reduce the use of transfats and offer healthier alternatives. Cross-regional flavors and changing food preferences are influencing the market, with an emphasis on fast food and processed foods. Therefore, these factors are expected to drive the growth of the potato processing market during the forecast period.

Major Market Challenge

The stringent government regulations is a major challenge impeding the market growth. The processed potatoes market encompasses a wide range of potato products, including frozen potatoes, prepared meals, and convenience foods, in both developed and tropical economies. In developed economies, stringent regulations issued by agencies like the FDA in the US impact the manufacturing, marketing, and labeling of these products.

Tropical countries, with their focus on potato growing and farming methodologies, also contribute significantly to the market. Potato processing caters to various sectors, such as restaurants, hotel chains, retail, and sports and wellness environments. 

Furthermore, with rapid urbanization and changing food preferences, the demand for quickservice restaurants, dietary supplements, and vegan or vegetarian food items is on the rise. Mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures, and geographical expansions by companies like Kraft Heinz and NotCo further shape the market landscape.

Health concerns related to hypertension, cardiovascular disease, cancer, stroke, obesity, and transfat-rich cooking oils are driving the need for innovation in potato processing, storage, and transportation solutions. Therefore, these factors can hinder the growth of the potato processing market during the forecast period.
