Purchase Report

Market Insights

The global canned soup market is expected to register a CAGR of 2.8% during the forecast period (2018-2023). Canned soup constitutes about 35% of the total soup consumed, globally, of which North American consumption accounts to about 80%. The growing demand for convenience food is a major driver of this market, while health concerns restrain the growth. New product launches by vendors is helping in keeping the healthy competition within the segments of canned soup industry. Campbell, Nestle, Kraft Heinz, and Unilever are some of the key players in the global market.

Market Dynamics

The increasing demand for convenience food, coupled with a rise in disposable incomes, drive the canned soup market growth. The long shelf-life of canned soups is another factor driving the market. The popularity of canned soups with the older generation can be attributed to its strong demand as a cupboard staple in the kitchen for use during emergencies. However, the addition of preservatives to increase the shelf-life results in health concerns among the people. Also, cans are not popular with the younger generation as they are difficult to open, heavy, and are also harmful to the environment. New product launches, like the organic canned soup, can be considered as opportunities in the market.

Market Segmentation

The global canned soup market has been segmented by type into condensed and ready-to-eat. The ready-to-eat segment dominates the global market. By content, the market is segmented into vegetarian and non-vegetarian.

Regarding preparation, the market is segmented into regular and organic. The regular canned soup segment dominates the global market. However, the demand for organic canned soups is constantly increasing due to health awareness among consumers. The market is further segmented by the distribution channel, into super markets/hyper markets, convenience stores, specialty food stores, online retailers, and others. Of all these, the supermarkets/hyper markets segment contributes the highest revenue.

Regional Analysis

North America accounted for the largest market share in 2015, followed by Europe and Asia-Pacific. This region accounts for 80% of the total canned soup consumption. However, sales have been on the decline in this region due to the associated health concerns. The U.S is a major market in North America.

The rising disposable incomes and shift in the taste of consumers are expected to drive the growth of the market in the region.
